Will There Be Season 5 of The Upshaws?

Netflix has yet not renewed Season 5 of The Upshaws. Before deciding whether to continue a series, the streamer often waits a month to assess the reaction of the audience.

We anticipate a similar outcome this time around given the show’s history of swift renewals. We might have to wait a bit until the new season is released despite an early renewal.

According to a May 2023 NPR broadcast, the writers’ strike caused The Upshaws to take a break. Wanda Sykes, who both stars in and executive produces the program, has supported her fellow writers during previous strikes and is a member of the WGA union. She has spoken out on the significance of paying the writers their fair share while also being on the front lines this time. She told,

Right now … there’s no way [a staff writer] can survive unless they have another job, something to supplement their income. I’m praying and hoping [for an agreement], but … we can’t back down. This is the line in the sand.

A lot of movies and TV programs were unable to be completed once the performers joined the writers on strike in July. It is unclear when development on the new season will resume and the show will go into production until this issue is resolved.
