Has Bupkis been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Bupkis is Pete Davidson’s ingenious moment of announcing an intimate portrayal of himself to the world. The eight-part series features a fictionalised (and very real) version of Davidson, who navigates his life problems in a relatable and absurdist fashion. After finishing the show, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is Bupkis Season 1 about?

Bupkis features Davidson playing himself. The Pete whom we see on the screen is a mix of fiction and personal. He channels his openness about his struggles with mental health and substance abuse in dramatic fashion in Bupkis. Bupkis, like Davidson’s stage work, challenges societal norms and pushes boundaries.

The show is sort of a tool to bridge the gap between Davidson and his audience. He seeks to establish an emotional connection with us by showing what it is actually like to be him. It does not always come with glory and glamour, shooting off many misconceptions we have about Pete as a person, that the media generally bloats to inflate its own numbers.

Has Bupkis been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Peacock has canceled Bupkis for season 2 according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Generally, Peacock and other streamers gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (aka. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Shantaram). Other times, it can take months before a decision over a show’s future is made.

Bupkis has had a pretty good reaction from critics and audiences, with many loving the style which sports a blend of comedy, drama and a fresh concept that veers away from traditional television norms. In fact, the show had been renewed only for it to be axed in March 2024.

What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known as season 2 at this point as Peacock has canceled this one. Should another platform pick it up, expect Pete to return for some more truth bombs and absurd, surreal experiences pushing creative boundaries and horizons for storytelling. We’ll be sure to update this section with more details and let you all know if there’s more to report!

  1. I will be quite disappointed if there is not a 2nd season. The show was much better than I anticipated. I WILL DEFINITELY watch a season 2❣️

  2. OMG!!!! Please, PLEASE Say SEASON 2 is already filmed and soon to be released!
    This show is so real. I am Italian (raised very “old school “) and my Father (Poppy) just passed away 4 months ago. Joe Pesci reminds me of him so much!
    Please don’t leave us hanging after the car accident–! Pete D’s acting was so real. This show gets an A+ from me!

  3. This show is brilliant 👏👍 Please don’t cancel! I watched whole season first i episodes 2 times I told all my friends and family to watch! Let’s find out what happens after his car accident by having a second and more seasons. Very good acting.

  4. Please please please!! Renew this show. It had me hollering the whole time. I haven’t laughed this hard in years. He’s redeemed his self in my book.

  5. Yes,please renew the show, it is the first time I have ever binge watched all episodes of any other TV shows. PLEASE PLEASE DON’T STOP WITH EPISODE ONE. I LOVE ❤️ 😍 THIS SHOW!!!!!

  6. Jesus, OF COURSE THEY SHOULD HAVE A SEASON 2. I want like, at least 4 seasons of this, with more Shane Gillis, frickin PESCI! Do you know how much he probably turns down? THEY GOT JOE PESCI!!!!!…… RENEW!

    SEASON 2 is a MUST!!!!!!
    Binged watched it the first time and have shared/watched 2 more times with other people!

  8. I definately want to see another season! I loved the last episode, especially. Would like to see the show cover Pete working on set with funny or painful things happening there, in addition to his personal life.

  9. How can they NOT renew this show?! I didn’t even like Pete Davidson but I love this show. Fingers crossed it’s renewed.

  10. Loved it! Binged it in a day, couldn’t stop watching. Peacock please renew this awesome show. I need more!

  11. Brilliant, on the edge, fantastic actors and cameos, with a decidedly black humour. Best programme I have seen in an age. Season 2 a MUST !!!

  12. Absolutely renew it!! Loved it, and watched it in 2 days – really hope there is another season ( or 3!) . Amazing cast,( won’t lie, I loved! Everybody Loves Raymond so seeing them was extremely nostalgic ) plus I love them both they are great actors/ comedians) – Please do not cancel this!

  13. Yes please, renew!!! I’d have to disagree with the ending not needing a season 2. We gotta find out how our boy, Pete, makes out!! I’m rooting for him!!!

  14. Bupkis, was GREAT! Watched the entire season, in one day. Please renew this for at least a season 2, if not more seasons. Great cast, and performances, my favorites are in this, especially Joe Pesci, Edie Falco, Steve Buscemi, and many more cameos. If they don’t renew it for another season, how will we know what happens after the car accident at the end? Please renew..

  15. LOVED Bupkis! After King of Staten Island I was expecting more of the same. But Bupkis is a much more refined, interesting, creative approach to Pete, his characters (family and friends) and his life. Let’s not forget – the casting is fantastic! Edie Falco as Mrs Davidson makes me want to learn more about Pete’s mom. She married a heroic and complicated man and raised Pete, a talented and complicated man. Come on, Netflix- we wanna know more. Please don’t leave us hangin’.

  16. Please renew. Great seeing Pesci and the whole cast was amazing, including all the great cameos. Definitely wanna see more of Pete’s journey. Bupkis Season 2. Lock it in!

  17. please renew it. better than most shows on TV. we need to know more after he crashes his car. lots to tell us

  18. Obsessed! They need season 2 , laughed cried like a bitch and smiled all the way through.

  19. If Peacock decides not to renew Bupkis for a second season, then they should ditch the Peacock name in exchange for the Cuckoo bird.

  20. I loved Everything in Season ONE!❤️
    Please Renew this for a SEASON TWO & At Least & SEASON THREE!! A EXCELLENT CAST TOO!! This Show is BRILLIANT!❤️ Oh my, one or to what time you want me,
