Netflix announced Wednesday The Upshaws has been renewed for a third season.

The sitcom premiered on the streaming service in 2021, and centers around a working-class Black family in Indiana struggling to make it work and make it right.

The series stars Mike Epps (Bennie Upshaw), Wanda Sykes (Lucretia Turner) and Kim Fields (Regina Upshaw).

The multi-camera comedy was created by Regina Hicks and Wanda Sykes, with the two serving as co-showrunners.

In a recent interview with the now-defunct Desus & Mero late-night Showtime program, Sykes compared the comedy series to popular Black sitcoms of the 1980s and ’90s, like 227 and Roc.

“There’s nothing on like it,” she said. “It was a time when we had working class Black family shows. Then all of a sudden it was just a bunch of Black people in suits and fancy cars, or gangsters. There’s nothing in between. So we are the working class Black family.”

The series is executive produced by Sykes,  Regina Hicks, Mike Epps, Page Hurwitz, Niles Kirchner, Annie Levine and Jon Emerson.

The Upshaws returns in early 2023 with new episodes.
