It was a sad day for Neil Patrick Harris fans in January when Netflix decided not to renew his latest series, Uncoupled, for a second season. The show was an informative one since it gave viewers a glimpse into the lives of queer middle-aged men, a material that not too many touches on. Fortunately, the show was picked up by Showtime for a second season.

The show, created by Emily in Paris creator Darren Star and Modern Family's Jeffrey Richman, was able to get saved by the soon-to-be renamed Paramount+ with Showtime. This is because Star currently has an overall deal with the show's producer, MTV Entertainment Studios. Deciding to renew Uncoupled for a second season is just one of the premium network's recent big decisions. It also decided to cancel Dexter: New Blood and create a couple of spinoff shows: a young Dexter and another one that will go deeper into the Trinity Killer's backstory.

The first season had a huge cliffhanger ending. After trying to get over his ex dumping him, NPH was finally able to move on and even became interested in a new guy. Unfortunately, Colin (his ex) showed up at their apartment to tell Michael he made a mistake.

The show also had several other revelations with the lead actor's friends. Suzanne, his colleague, met up with her son's father after discovering her son had been looking for him behind her back.

Michael's BFFs, Stanley and Billy, were not spared by the cliffhanger ending. In Uncoupled Season 2, we'll see Billy be more serious about his lovelife. Meanwhile, Stanley is facing a huge health scare as he received a breast cancer diagnosis.

Thankfully, we'll see more of these characters when they return for a second season.
