Neil Patrick Harris’ new comedy series has been on Netflix for over a month. It sees the actor return to a format that made his career what it is today. decoupled All 8 short episodes can be viewed in one sitting, so if you’ve already read and searched for news about Season 2, here’s what we know.

The series is directed by Jeffrey Richman and Darren Star, the latter behind another Netflix behemoth in the form of Emily in Paris. Before that, Star was best known for creating sex and the city, melrose Place, Y Younger.

Eight episodes of the comedy hit Netflix on July 29, 2022, following a man living in New York who had to rediscover life after a long-term relationship suddenly ended.

Decoupled Season 2 Renewal Status

Netflix Official Renewal Status: Not yet renewed or canceled
Our renewal prediction: 50/50

After a month on the service, Netflix has yet to officially announce whether the show will return for a second season.

As time goes on, the show will be less and less likely to be renewed and will almost certainly be renewed or canceled based on your stats.

On the review side, it was liked by audiences and critics alike. It currently has a 77% critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a 74% audience rating on RT, and a 7.0/10 on IMDb.

Given the show’s lukewarm performance so far (more on that below), we’re currently 50/50 on the show’s future. It has one of the best chances for renewal of any of the current budding comedy series, but given Netflix’s track record in the space, it may not have the numbers it needs to justify a future season.

How well is Uncoupled doing on Netflix?

The series failed to chart on Netflix’s top 10 world hourly charts in its first three days on the platform. This is not necessarily the end of the world, but it does show that it was not launched.

disengaged would have needed more than 20.17 million hours viewed worldwide to chart between July 25 and 31 topping the second season of Strange things.

The show appeared in Netflix’s global top 10 for a single week between July 31 and August 7. It collected 26.52 million hours and was ranked sixth that week. He dropped out the following week, where he would have needed 18.07 million hours to qualify.

week period Hours viewed (M) Range Week in the Top 10
July 31, 2022 to August 7, 2022 26,520,000 6 1

The key to a show like this will undoubtedly be the completion stats. That’s where Netflix measures the percentage of people who start the show and finish it. It’s a stat that many (including us) have recognized as one of the most important to getting renewals.

Raw top 10 data provided by FlixPatrol seems to suggest that the show got off to a familiar start, but dropped out of the top 10 after about 2-3 weeks.

A heat map (also provided by FlixPatrol) shows where the show performed the most in the top 10. Unsurprisingly, the show did well in the Anglo-Saxon world, playing steadily for a few weeks in places like the US, Canada, Ireland, the UK, and Australia. It also did well in Eastern Europe and Iceland.

At the end of the season, we saw Michael go home and hear that Colin had been rethinking the breakup that caused all the trouble in the first place. Will Michael consider giving their 17-year relationship another chance?

Elsewhere, Stanley has been diagnosed with stage one breast cancer and is due for treatment. Kai’s father remains a huge question mark given that Kai snuck out of a meeting at the last minute.

Also, thanks to an interview with TVLine, we were given some key plot threads on where we might be heading in season 2. Darren Star told the outlet “he anticipates a lot of friction in the writers’ room on how to proceed.”
