Pete Davidson’s ‘Bupkis’ Not Moving Forward With Season 2 At Peacock

Pete Davidson is moving on. The comedian has decided not to proceed with a second season of his semi-autobiographical series Bupkis for Peacock.

The streamer renewed the series in June 2023, a month after its premiere. But Davidson said that he changed his mind because he feels “this part of my life is finished”.

More from Deadline

It is the latest series to be renewed and then not move forward, although most decisions are reversed by the network or streamer.

Now it seems that fans [SPOILER ALERT] will not find out how Davidson fared after his car crash at the end of season one.

The series also stars Edie Falco and Joe Pesci and comes from Universal Television and Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video.

The first season had a large entourage of guest stars including Machine Gun Kelly, Steve Buscemi, Bobby Cannavale, Charlie Day, Al Gore, Paul Walter Hauser, Chase Sui Wonders and Ray Romano.

The series followed the former SNL star as he attempts to work through unique family dynamics and the complexities of fame to form meaningful relationships. Falco played his mother and Pesci starred as his grandfather.

Written, executive produced by, and starring Davidson, Bupkis is executive produced by Lorne Michaels for Broadway Video and is written and executive produced by Judah Miller and Dave Sirus alongside executive producers Andrew Singer and Erin David. Jason Orley directed and co-executive produced.

Davidson has kept a relatively low profile over the last few months. He is currently on his Prehab stand up tour. He returned to SNL to host the show in October, signed with WME in November and joined Eddie Murphy in The Pickup movie at Amazon MGM Studios in December.

Davidson said, “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.”
