Upload is a sci-fi comedy-drama series created by Greg Daniels who is known for The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Netflix’s Space Force. The first season of the series aired on Prime Video on May 1, 2020, and immediately afterward, a second season was greenlighted by the streaming service. Upload stars Robbie Amell, Andy Allo, and Allegra Edwards.
What is Upload About?
The series is about Nathan (Robbie Amell), a party enthusiast and computer programmer, and his new friend Nora, who works at a VR company. In 2033, humans are able to “upload” themselves into a virtual afterlife of their choosing. Nathan is a computer programmer who is seriously injured in a car accident. Told that he is likely to die from his injuries, he chooses to have himself “uploaded” into a digital afterlife where he can still interact with the world of the living.
Nathan settles in Lakeview which is one of the most expensive virtual environments for the uploaded people. There he meets his customer service “Angel” Nora Anthony (Andy Allo), who at first is his charismatic concierge and guide, but quickly becomes his friend and confidante, helping him navigate this new digital extension of life. As he gets used to his new life and befriends his angel Nora, (real-world handler) questions about his death arise.
The first season had 10 episodes and it got an 8.0 rating out of nearly 45K votes on IMDb.
