For those late to the party, the ’90s-style sitcom follows charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess Bennie Upshaw (Mike Epps) who’s just trying his best to step up as the head of a Black working-class family that includes wife Regina (Kim Fields), their two young daughters (Khali Daniya-Renee Spraggins and Journey Christine ) and firstborn son (Jermelle Simon), the teenage son (Diamond Lyons ) he fathered with another woman (Gabrielle Dennis) and spicy sister-in-law Lucretia (Wanda Sykes).
Season 2 will feature 6 more half-hour episodes than the first season that garnered critical acclaim and widespread praise from fans.
“Wanda and Regina have created a fresh entry in the tradition of Black sitcoms that’s real, relatable, full of heart and incredibly funny,” said Tracy Pakosta , Netflix’s head of comedy. “We’re thrilled to see where they, along with their talented cast, take the Upshaws in the second season.”
‘The Upshaws Season 2 Part 1’ premieres exclusively on Netflix on June 29th.
