‘The Upshaws’ Renewed For Its Final Season On Netflix

Posted Jun 7, 2024

Part 7 of the Acclaimed Comedy Series Will Consist of 12 Episodes

Netflix today announced that the hit comedy series The Upshaws has been renewed for a final season, with a 12-episode Part 7.

Additionally, The Upshaws’ penultimate run, Part 6, is slated to premiere in early 2025.

Quotes from Co-Creator/Co-Showrunner Regina Hicks, Co-Creator/Co-Showrunner/Writer/Star Wanda Sykes, as told exclusively to TUDUM:

Regina Hicks: “Truly grateful to Netflix for giving us this season to once again bring the warmth and funny that we’re known for (and with this fifth and final-some closure) to our Upshaws family.”

Wanda Sykes: “A heartfelt thanks to Netflix for letting us send-off The Upshaws with this fifth and final season. We are excited to give the show and the fans a proper farewell.”

Synopsis: Bennie Upshaw (Mike Epps), the head of a Black working-class family in Indianapolis, is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family – wife Regina (Kim Fields), their two young daughters (Khali Spraggins, Journey Christine) and firstborn son (Jermelle Simon), the teenage son (Diamond Lyons) he fathered with another woman (Gabrielle Dennis) — and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law (Wanda Sykes), all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together. In this upcoming part, the Upshaws continue to ride life’s ups and downs, including new jobs, bigger dreams, health struggles, and some major life surprises but still hanging on with the love that comes with family.
