Netflix just drops the trailer for The Upshaws last week that looks promising in itself. Fans are asking when will Netflix finally release this series to open air? The pandemic couldn’t stop some of the series to keep renewing and releasing.  One of them, though, is called The Upshaws. The series tells a humane and mundane story of a black family’s struggles, victory, and happiness. It will also relive the vibe of usual black-family vibes and chronicles.
The story sets in Indiana, US, as this family is striving to get a better life and better home. But of course, this series is also full of comedy. The legendary black actress Wanda Sykes is joining the cast of The Upshaw’s. We surely can’t wait to see her comedic performance once again in this comedy-drama series.
