Uncoupled Co-Star Reacts to Surprise Cancellation: ‘Guess I’m Not Going to NYC in May!’

If you’re disappointed by Showtime’s decision to un-renew Uncoupled, you’re not alone.

The Neil Patrick Harris-led comedy dropped its eight-episode first season on Netflix in July 2022, only to be canceled by the streamer in January 2023. Showtime announced plans to save the series a month later, formally ordering a second season, but that decision has since been reversed.

Now that news of Uncoupled‘s second cancellation has been made public, the show’s cast is beginning to speak out. Jai Rodriguez, who recurred as one half of the Jonathans, posted this brief response on his Instagram stories: “Welp, Guess I’m not going to NYC in May to shoot.”

And Dan Amboyer, who played one of NPH’s love interests, posted this heartfelt message to Instagram: “Sad that there won’t be a season 2 of Uncoupled after all. Thankful for my experience, would have loved to see this story go on. Had my eyes set on it as soon as I heard about it, originally. One of my favorite projects (to be a small part of)—and a meaningful moment for me to finally play a gay role on screen. Magic people, master creators. Can’t wait to see what they cook up next.”

Created by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman, Uncoupled followed NPH as New York City real estate agent Michael, who suddenly found himself single after being unceremoniously dumped by longtime boyfriend Colin (Tuc Watkins).

Unfortunately, the show left viewers on a number of cliffhangers, none of which will get resolved now that a second season is off the table. Most importantly, the finale ended with Michael (NPH) returning home to discover a distraught Colin, who questioned whether they made a terrible mistake. It was a major turn of events, with Richman admitting to TVLine, “We enjoy painting ourselves into a corner.”

Other developments that would have been explored in Season 2 included Michael’s friend Stanley (Brooks Ashmanskas) being diagnosed with cancer, Billy (Emerson Brooks) dedicating his life to becoming more serious, and Suzanne (Tisha Campbell) coming face to face with her son’s father.
