Did Netflix Cancel ‘Uncoupled’? 

In January 2023, Deadline reported that Netflix canceled the series and would not be renewing it for another season despite positive reviews. The outlet cited that Uncoupled did not stand in Netflix’s Top 10 shows for a while, leading the network to ultimately pull the plug. 

Nevertheless, Showtime saved the day by acquiring the series, the outlet reported in February 2023. 

Before Showtime officially renewed the show, series star Tisha Campbell told People that she was optimistic about the show’s continuation. 

“I think there’s some things happening behind the scenes, so I’m not sure,” she teased. “It was shocking that we were No. 3 [on Netflix in the U.S.], and we weren’t worldwide, and we weren’t picked up. That was shocking, but that’s the business. It just is what it is. I don’t ever take things personally. I loved working for that streaming network.”
