Synopsis

Revival

On February 8th, 2019, George expressed interest in making a few extra seasons of Uncle Sam in order to get more satire and to use Sam again. He already expressed his interest before, but those were delayed due to his commitments with The Sea Legend. Later, on September 12th, 2020, Comedy Central launched a new season.

The season is set ten years in the future as Uncle Sam is trying to mend his relationship with Marianne while George was forced to marry the Tooth Fairy, even if he feels weird about it, and Michelle is currently single.

Due to its production being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, most of the work for it has been done at home with the writers' reunions and voice recordings being handled through Zoom, while animation is still handled overseas.

Considering the unpredictability of the United States general elections, the series' crew had developed two different plotlines as a precaution: one where Donald Trump is reelected and another where Joe Biden is elected.

Trivia

  • The series takes no political angle as several writers are both Republicans, Democrats and independent and the creator is actually politically neutral.
  • These are all of the cases of actors who voiced parodies if either themselves or their most famous characters.
    • Joan Rivers voicing herself.
    • Patrick Stewart voicing himself.
    • Lin-Manuel Miranda and Phillipa Soo voiced fictional versions of Alexander and Eliza Hamilton who they famously portrayed on Hamilton.
