When it comes to some of the funniest shows that have come out in the last ten years or so that have truly made me smile, there are few that always come to mind. One is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, another is Modern Family, but one that is a bit more recent is Upload

The original series on Amazon Prime Video, which has been going on for two seasons, stars Robbie Amell and tells the story of a young man who dies and is uploaded into a digital afterlife, finding that even when he is dead and gone, his girlfriend from the real world is still possessive of him – and it just gets crazier from there. 

While there is so much to love about this series, there’s one thing we need to talk about – Season 3! For all of your Upload Season 3 questions, here is what we know so far about the upcoming season, including when new episodes will premiere on Amazon Prime Video

What Is The Upload Season 3 Premiere Date?

We can now confirm that Upload Season 3 will start premiering on Amazon Prime on October 20th, 2023, as announced by Amazon. 

It was announced back in May 2022 after the Season 2 finale of Upload that the story is continuing. The head of global television at Amazon Studios confirmed it in a press announcement, saying how excited they were for the rest of the show to go on. 

Upload has become a bonafide hit that continues to be one of the most watched comedy originals on Prime Video. The series continues to connect and provoke endless possibilities for the future of technology and humanity. With Greg’s distinct comedic take along with the dynamic creative team and talented actors, they’ve made a globally relevant series which we’re all incredibly proud to bring back another season for our customers.

It's been about a year-and-a half since Season 2 came out, and while this isn't nearly as long as the wait between Season 1 and Season 2, it' still a decent amount of time that fans have had to wait for new episodes. 

Between the end of Season 1, and all the questions we had, and Season 2, fans had to wait nearly two years. It's possible we could attribute that wait to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic and how a lot of shows were either pushed back or canceled during this time, but then we still needed to wait forever for the episodes to drop. Upload is also a very visual effects heavy show, so I can understand why it might take time for them to produce it. 

Greg Daniels created Upload for Amazon Prime, so it’s already a hit show. For those who don’t know, Daniels has been known to create several other hit comedy shows, including the iconic The Office, as well as several other well-known shows such as Parks and Recreation, King of the Hill, and most recently on Netflix, Space Force (although that has been canceled). So there’s no denying there is certainly an audience for Upload who want to see the show come to our television screens quicker. 

Thankfully, Upload Season 3 will be a part of the 2023 TV release schedule, so we can all count down the days now. 

The Main Cast Will Be Back

Get excited because we’re seeing a lot of the characters that we all know and love (or hate) for Season 3 of Upload. Confirmed by Amazon when the premiere date was announced, several stars will be back for Season 3, including Robbie Amell as Nathan, Andy Allo as Nora, Kevin Bigley as Luke, Allegra Edwards as Ingrid, Zainab Johnson as Aleesha, and Owen Daniels as A.I. Guy.

Many of them posted on their social media channels when filming began back in 2022. Robbie Amell, who portrays the lead, Nathan, shared his own post on Instagram to commemorate the beginning of filming, alongside fellow co-star, Andy Allow.  

Another star of the show, Allegra Edwards, who portrays Ingrid in Upload, shared a post on Instagram in front of her dressing room mirror, dressed up for the part as filming for Season 3 began. 

Also along with this, Josh Banday posted a cute video of him and one of his co-stars on set on Instagram, and Owen B. Daniels shared a picture of him and one of the television directors, Tom Marshall, on his own Instagram account. 

This just makes me even more excited. 

Jeanine Mason Is Joining The Cast

According to Variety, Jeanine Mason is going to be signing on to be a recurring character on Upload Season 3. 

The character she is set to play is Karina Silva, a senior Horizon executive who is working on a new product in the world of Upload, as well as cybersecurity. 

Mason has been in a variety of television shows prior to her role in Upload, including Roswell, New Mexico, Grey’s Anatomy, Grace & Frankie and so much more – and also won the fifth season of So You Think You Can Dance, so you know she’s talented. And I for one can’t wait to see what she brings to the show. 

Robbie Amell Shared One Specific Detail About His Character In Season 3

Up until recently, Season 3 details for Upload are a bit scarce, but back in June 2023, we did get a bit of an update from Robbie Amell as to what it could hint at – and it’s huge. 

In an exclusive interview that he did with Mama’s Geeky ahead of his new movie, Simulant, Amell talked about the upcoming season, and how the new story is going to be “really funny and super weird.”

This season is really funny and super weird and way, way out there. There’s two of me, which was a trip to shoot. I’m shooting opposite somebody who just looks like me from behind and then I’m shooting opposite nothing. And then I’m shooting opposite a green thing. It was crazy. I think it’ll come out this Fall. I’m really excited for this season. I think it’s really cool.

Did you read that? Amell just said that there’s two of him in Season 3 – which seems like a big hint as to what’s going on with Nathan – at least, at some point during the season.

In that Season 2 finale – if you're not caught up, spoiler alert! – Nathan got “downloaded” into a living body that is outside of Lakeview, so the digital version of him isn’t in the digital world where he was uploaded, but in a real body. But when we last see him, his nose begins to bleed, and it seems like he is running out of time, and now he needs to get back to Lakeview before he’s lost.

However, at the same time, back at Horizon, Tinsley realizes she can’t find Nathan anywhere in Lakeview. Believing him to be lost to a glitch,  she’s told to quietly  re-add him into Lakeview using a backup file. 

Amazon's release date announcement confirmed that there are indeed two Nathans, and elaborated on that chaotic scenario by suggesting that this might just be a second chance opportunity for Ingrid and her romantic relationship. Speaking of romance, it also sounds like Aleesha will have a new love interest. 

Finally, it sounds like Luke will be working in the Grey Zone in order to fund his Lakeview stay. We can only guess what that'll lead to... 

Filming Has Finished

The last thing we’ll talk about is that filming for Season 3 has come to an end. As mentioned above, we already talked about how filming began in August 2022 from all the posts that the stars put up on social media, but it also seems that Season 3 filming ended in November 2022. 

Andy Allo, who plays Nora in Upload, shared a tribute post to filming on Instagram in November 2022, and that she had “a blast” making secret handshakes with everyone while filming. 

There’s seriously so much to love about this show and I for one can’t wait to see what happens, and now that filming is done, it’s only a matter of time. 

What are you going to do while waiting to see exactly what happens next in Upload? Season 3 can’t come soon enough. In the meantime, there are plenty of other great shows to watch if you like Upload
