Amazon Prime‘s ‘Upload‘ blends mystery with comedy science fiction and comes up with a unique, and very realistic story line and the future world. Will Upload season 3 return? Let’s find out!
The show follows Nathan, a recently deceased young man who finds himself in a lavish afterlife simulation for the rich. Even as our hero grapples with his domineering girlfriend (who holds an insanely expensive “paradise” wallet) and his infatuation with customer service rep Nora, an even bigger mystery comes into play. It soon became clear that Nathan was murdered.
Originally released on May 1, 2020, series creator Greg Daniels has garnered acclaim for his poignant and realistic critique of capitalist greed. A lively bold plot and entertaining cast also helped the series become a fan favorite. With season 2 ending on a suspenseful cliffhanger, we’re all hungrier! So, let’s see what we know about ‘Upload’ season 3.
Upload Season 3: Potential Release Date
‘Upload’ season 2 premieres on March 11, 2022, on Amazon Prime Video. All seven episodes of the second season were released simultaneously, each with a runtime of 27-39 minutes.
As far as season 3 is concerned, there has been no official announcement. But it looks like it’s only a matter of time as Greg Daniels – in an interview in February 2022 – confirmed that the writing process has already started! That way, fans can (carefully) celebrate because if all goes well, we’ll see another season of our favorite dead and alive characters.
However, don’t expect to see the potential but possible season 3 anytime soon as all those entertaining special effects take a little while to get right. Daniels, who is also the co-creator of ‘Space Force’ with Steve Carell, confirmed this, saying that the special effects in ‘Upload’ made the post-production process lengthy.
While the wait may not be as long as the nearly two-year gap between season 1 and season 2, fans will still have to be patient. All things considered; we expect to see a potential ‘Upload’ season 3 around Q1 2023.
Upload Season 3: Expected Cast
The cast of ‘Upload’ is led by Robbie Amell (Nathan Brown), Andy Allo (Nora Antony), and Allegra Edwards (Ingrid Kannerman). Regular cast members include Zainab Johnson (Aleesha), Kevin Bigley (Luke), Owen Daniels (AI Guy), and Andrea Rosen (Lucy).
In potential season 3, all of the leading cast members are expected to return to their roles. A supporting cast such as Josh Banday (Ivan Spelich), William B. Davis (David Choak), Yvetta Fisher (Batia), Jordan Johnson-Hinds (Jamie), Jessica Tuck (Viv), Chris Williams (Dave Antony), and others are expected to come back too. Also, some new actors might join the show.
Upload Season 3: Expected Plot
Season 2 ends with Nathan being successfully “Downloaded” into his body, which is regenerated by Ingrid. However, our hero chooses Nora, leaving a vengeful ex-boyfriend plotting revenge by finding one of Nathan’s hairs from an old hairbrush and telling him that she will get what she wants. Meanwhile, Nora and Nathan finally get some romantic time alone on their journey to stop Freeyond’s malicious program, which is targeted at the economically weak.
Unbeknownst to those who registered (including Nathan’s mother, Viv), Freeyond was a ploy to deprive the poor of their rights by depriving them of voting rights, thus influencing election outcomes in a volatile state. Season 2 ends on an ominous note with Nathan finding a nosebleed, the first symptom of Download: the head is about to fatally explode.
We expect the potential for season 3 to pick up right where season two ends. As such, things could open with Nathan’s head horribly exploding and then following Nora as she tries to bring Nathan back in a way to recover his consciousness (presumably from a backup file in Horizen’s office). Season 2’s mission to stop Freeyond is also likely to continue, especially with Viv being the victim. Finally, we can expect to see Ingrid execute her revenge plan, possibly with some very entertaining results.
