Uncoupled's Neil Patrick Harris shares S2 updateNetflix

Neil Patrick Harris has shared an update on Uncoupled season 2 amid the writers' strike.

The How I Met Your Mother star revealed the show's second instalment had originally begun filming after Showtime saved it from cancellation at Netflix. However, production came to a halt due to the strike, with Harris sharing hopes of it resuming later this summer.

"We were going to start filming it in the beginning of July but the writers strike is happening," the actor said during an appearance on The View last Friday (June 2).

"So, everything is sort of on pause – go writers, writers strong."

"We're just going to wait until that [writers strike] plays itself out," he added.

The actor continued: "Hopefully we'll be able to start filming in warm weather. We filmed season one in cold weather and it's less fun to have like dating shows where you're walking down Central Park and like freezing and shivering. [It's] more fun in a tank top."

Co-created by Darren Star (Sex and the City, Emily in Paris) and Jeffrey Richman, Uncoupled follows Michael Lawson (Harris), a newly single real estate agent navigating the NYC dating scene when his partner of 17 years abruptly breaks up with him. (Spoilers for season 1 ahead.)

The 8-episode run ended on a pretty big cliffhanger, with Michael calling to make a big decision when his ex Colin (Tuc Watkins) returns, while the protagonist's business partner and pal Suzanne (Tisha Campbell) agrees to meet her son's father, who she hasn't seen in decades.

Uncoupled season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
