We know we need Upload Season 2 to happen, especially with the way the first season ended. When can we expect the second season to air on Amazon Prime Video?

There is absolutely no doubt that Upload Season 2 is necessary. Even without that infuriating ending, there are a lot of great things in the show that warrant another batch of episodes. So, instead of looking at whether Amazon will renew the show, we’ll look at when the second season will drop.

Don’t worry; this whole piece is spoiler-free. If you’re watching an episode a night, you can know that the ending won’t be spoiled.

More from Amazon Originals

Most Amazon Originals take 14 months or so from the previous season. However, some have known to take a little longer. We went almost two years between The Man in the High Castle Seasons 2 and 3, and yet Season 4 dropped a year after Season 3. It’s hard to predict when we’ll see a new season of any show.

However, with a show like Upload, we’re likely looking at a longer timeframe. Not only is there the filming, but there are many visual effects that need to be added in. These aren’t just to add a video to a phone or a poster on a computer. The visual effects are everywhere in the digital world and they need to look grounded and real.

So, we could be looking at the 18 to 24 month mark for a new season. And that’s in a world without the coronavirus. Filming is put on hold. If Amazon renewed the show right now, the writing could happen. However, the filming wouldn’t be possible until restrictions are lifted due to the pandemic.

With all this in mind, Upload Season 2 could be out towards the middle to the end of 2021 at the earliest. It will be worth the wait!
