Peacock has announced it has given the green light to Bupkis Season 2, which will continue the comedy series from executive producer Lorne Michaels and starring Pete Davidson, Edie Falco, and Joe Pesci.
Bupkis Season 2 will come from Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Broadway Video.
“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.”
“Pete, Lorne and the entire Bupkis team took audiences on a wild and emotionally captivating adventure in season one; from family weddings to drug-fueled road trips to lonely holidays on set, these authentic, outrageous, and emotionally candid escapades gave viewers the good, the bad, and the real that comes with stardom,” said Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television.
“We are grateful to Peacock for their support, and can’t wait to once again climb inside the creative mind of Pete Davidson for season two.”
Written, executive produced by, and starring Pete Davidson, Bupkis Season 2 is executive produced by Lorne Michaels for Broadway Video and is written and executive produced by Judah Miller and Dave Sirus.
The executive producers are Andrew Singer and Erin David. Jason Orley directed and co-executive produced.
The first season of Bupkis premiered on May 4, 2023 and quickly became certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The comedy follows Pete Davidson as he attempts to work through unique family dynamics and the complexities of fame to form meaningful relationships.
The raw, semi-autobiographical series stars Davidson, Edie Falco, and Joe Pesci, alongside a star-studded supporting cast, in a show that straddles reality and absurdity to best represent what it is to be Pete Davidson.
Additional anticipated content coming this year includes Twisted Metal, Wolf Like Me Season 2, Love Island USA, Love Island Games, Kevin Hart: Reality Check, Hart to Heart Season 3, Killing It Season 2, Dr. Death Season 2, and more.
