Amazon Prime Video is Upload-ing another season of its new sci-fi comedy: The streamer has renewed the Robbie Amell-starring series, from creator Greg Daniels (The Office), for Season 2.
The show takes place in a near future, where people can be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife of their choice. After his death in a self-driving car accident, young app developer Nathan Brown (Amell) chooses to be uploaded to his shallow girlfriend’s family’s luxurious virtual afterlife, the Horizen company’s “Lakeview,” where he meets his customer service “Angel” Nora Anthony (Chicago Fire‘s Andy Allo).
