Upload season 3 cast, trailer, plot, reviews, and more news

Nathan's life isn't getting any easier in the Amazon Prime series, so here's everything we know about the Upload season 3, including the reviews and cast.

Upload season 3 release date: Robbie Amell in Upload season 3

What is the Upload season 3 release date? Amazon Studios has really been pushing its original shows over the last few years, and one of its best offerings is Greg Daniels’ Upload.

Upload is like if someone put Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and Michael Bay’s The Island in a blender, and tried to turn it into one of the best TV series. That’s mostly been a success, and it’s among the best sci-fi series on Amazon Prime Video. But what goes on in season 3?

Upload season 3 release date and reviews

Upload season 3 began streaming on Friday, October 20, 2023, with two episodes dropping simultaneously, and ends in November.

There was a worry the 2023 strikes would push it into 2024, but luckily that wasn’t the case.

As for reviews, season 3 has an 83% Rotten Tomatoes critics score and
90% for the audience score. The critical reception puts it below seasons 1 and 2 (the latter boasts a rare 100%) but not drastically.

PerthNow‘s Wenlei Ma wrote, “As the series progressed through its second and third seasons, Upload has become even sharper in its critiques of wealth inequality and what the upper echelons of the economic strata is really doing to keep their money and power.”

In terms of the drop-off from season 2, Matthew Gilbert of the
Boston Globe explained, “I didn’t hate season 3, but I was let down by its unnecessary twistiness, some creeping aimlessness, and the sometimes-confused links between the uploads and the world, the uploads and the other uploads, and the downloads and the bodies.”

What is Upload season 3 about?

Season 3 begins with Nathan and Nora now officially a couple after Nathan’s download in season 2. They’ve got a lot to deal with though, as they try to stop Freeyond.

In the opening stages of season 3, the newly minted coupling tries to stop Freeyond from persuading millions of poor people to get uploaded. They then try to enjoy their time together, fleeting as it may be. After that, we’re off on a trip to LA.

Meanwhile, Luke deals with his painful memories, and Aleesha is tasked with teaching the AI boys to be human.

Is there a trailer for Upload season 3?

Upload season 3’s first trailer came out on September 21, 2023.

It showed the growing closeness between Nathan and Nora but promised plenty of complications as more versions of Nathan are brought into the virtual world.

Like Upload itself, the trailer is funny and charming with a touch of satire directed at the state of the modern tech-obsessed world. Amell is in top form too.
