Bupkis will not be returning for a second season after all. Pete Davidson has cancelled his plans to continue the series, which was renewed by Peacock a month after its June 2023 release.

The comedy-drama series, which stars Pete Davidson, Edie Falco, and Joe Pesci, is a heightened and fictionalized version of Davidson’s life, ala Curb Your Enthusiasm. The first season follows Davidson as he attempts to work through his family’s unique dynamics, the complexities of fame, and how to form meaningful relationships.

Season one features guest appearances by La La Anthony, Carly Aquilino, Colson Baker (Machine Gun Kelly), Josh Bitton, Preston Brodrick, Steve Buscemi, Bobby Cannavale, Kevin Corrigan, Nadia Dajani, Charlamagne Tha God, Charlie Day, Philip Ettinger, Derek Gaines, Brad Garrett, Al Gore, Paul Walter Hauser, Lynne Koplitz, Loulou Lazarus, Sunita Mani, John Mulaney, John Pollono, Delaney Quinn, Simon Rex, Oona Roche, Ray Romano, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Jon Stewart, Kenan Thompson, Ricky Velez, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Chase Sui Wonder.

Davidson said the following about the decision to end Bupkis, per Deadline:

“I’ve always seen Bupkis as a window into my life, since it is so personal and about my struggles and family. After nearly a decade of my personal life being in the media I wanted a chance to tell my story my way. Of all the work I’ve ever done, Bupkis is by far what I’m most proud of.

I am so grateful to Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video, Peacock, Universal Television and the amazing cast and writers for helping me create something honest, funny and heartfelt. I do also feel that this part of my life is finished. I’m very excited for this next chapter and for you guys to see the work. Thank you to all who support me for I am forever grateful.”

What do you think? Were you planning to watch the second season of Bupkis on Peacock? Are you surprised by Davidson’s decision to cancel the series himself?
