The Pete Davidson comedy will be back in 2024.
June 23, 2023
Peacock announced today that Bupkis has been renewed for a second season. The news comes less than two months after the release of its freshman run, which was met with a positive reception from both viewers and critics.
"Pete Davidson is a once-in-a-generation talent, and what he created with the first season of Bupkis absolutely blew us away," said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "Pete has the rare ability to make you laugh out loud with his unfiltered brand of comedy, and then tear up with his raw and honest vulnerability. We could not be more proud to continue on this journey with Pete, Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video, and our partners at Universal Television for a second season as we continue to bolster Peacock's comedy slate."
A heightened, semi-autobiographical version of comedian Pete Davidson's life, the series combines grounded storytelling with absurd elements from the unfiltered and original worldview for which Pete is known. In the show, Pete attempts to work through various family dynamics and the complexities of fame to form meaningful relationships.
Season one was decent.. I'll tune in for season 2. Maybe it'll explain why Davidson thinks the bleached hair look is a good look for him (it's not).
