Prime Video hits To download on more episodes of the satirical sci-fi comedy, renewing the series for Season 3, TVLine has learned.
“To download became a bona fide hit that continues to be one of the most-watched comedy originals on Prime Video,” Amazon Studios Head of Global Television Vernon Sanders said in a statement. “The series continues to connect and spark endless possibilities for the future of technology and humanity. With Greg [Daniels’] a distinct comedic approach with a dynamic creative team and talented actors, they have created a globally relevant series that we are all incredibly proud to bring back for another season for our customers.
The show, from creator Greg Daniels (Office), is set in a technologically advanced future where humans can choose to be “downloaded” into a virtual afterlife. the flash Vet Robbie Amell stars as computer programmer Nathan, who dies unexpectedly and finds himself in one of those digital afterlives at dear Lakeview, where he falls in love with his customer service “angel” Nora (chicago fireis Andy Hello). The cast also includes Kevin Bigley (Sirens), Allegra Edwards (Briarpatch), Zainab Johnson (American Koko), Owen Daniels(space force), Andrea Rosen (Episodes) and Josh Banday.
“I am thrilled to continue the story of Nathan and Nora and the other residents of Lakeview and near-future America as they try to have fun and do the right thing in the real and virtual worlds. “Daniels said in a statement.
Season 2 premiered on March 11 (after a 22-month hiatus) and ended with Nathan suffering from a disturbing nosebleed after “downloading” into Freeyond. (At least he and Nora were finally able to act on their feelings for each other before that grim cliffhanger?) Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend Ingrid acquired a lock of Nathan’s hair with an old hairbrush. hair, and Aleesha’s temp began restoring Nathan from backup after noticing he was Lakeview’s MIA.
“I’m a little worried about how many Nathans there might be next season,” Amell told TVLine during a post-mortem Q&A, “because you restarted them from a saved file, you have the real world one, and so I don’t know what Ingrid is doing with Nathan’s DNA. I don’t know if it’s for a child or for another Nathan. I could work triple the next season. (Get more info on the twists and turns of the Season 2 finale here.)
