Bupkis Season 2: The Peacock series led by Pete Davidson is renewed

Peacock has officially ordered bupkis Season 2 for Pete Davidson’s latest comedy-drama, based on the real-life experiences of the Saturday Night Live graduate. The renewal comes nearly two months after the debut of the eight-episode first season, which was an instant critical acclaim and currently has an 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Pete Davidson is a once-in-a-lifetime talent and we were absolutely blown away by what he created with the first season of Bupkis,” said Susan Rovner, chair of entertainment content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, in a statement. “Pete has a rare ability to make you laugh with his unfiltered brand of comedy and then make you cry with his raw and honest vulnerability. We couldn’t be prouder to continue this journey with Pete, Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video and our partners at Universal Television for a second season as we continue to strengthen Peacock’s comedy programming.”

What is Bupkis about?

“Bupkis is a new comedy about Pete Davidson as he seeks to build meaningful relationships through unique family dynamics and the complexities of fame,” reads the series description. “The raw, semi-autobiographical series blends reality and absurdity to best portray what it means to be Pete Davidson. Welcome to Bupkis.”

Davidson is joined by Edie Falco as Amy Davidson, Joe Pesci as Joe Larocca, Philip Ettinger as Evan, Bobby Cannavale as Uncle Tommy and more. Season 1 featured a star-studded cast including Sebastian Stan, Jon Stewart, John Mulaney, Machine Gun Kelly, Al Gore, Steve Buscemi and more.

The series is co-written by Davidson, Judah Miller and Dave Sirus, who also co-wrote Judd Apatow’s The King of Staten Island, which was also inspired by Davidson’s life. Executive producers are Davidson, Sirus, Miller, Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Erin David, with Miller serving as showrunner.
