The Upshaws Season 1 showed the marital conflicts between Bennie and his wife Regina, who had been lovers since their teenage days, and later in life, they eventually took their relationship further and got married. They are shown raising their four children and giving their best to their kids.
Bennie and Regina’s relationship is depicted to work through many ups and downs which perfectly shows the situation that a middle-class family goes through. This family sitcom has managed to give its viewers a reality check on real-life matters with great comedy and compelling characters.
In the end, we see Regina and Bennie reconciled and the whole family is brought together. Not leaving any space for the further plot, right? Well, that’s not the case, those who have seen the drama are well aware that in the end, Bernard Jr. comes out as gay to his former partner, forming enough space for the story to move forward.
The expected plot of The Upshaws Season 3 could be showing how he evolves as a gay and how his relations form with other people upon confronting them. To know what the series will present, the fans must wait until next year. The Upshaws is available on the OTT platform Netflix.
