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.

Trivia

  • The series takes no political angle as several writers are both Republicans, Democrats and independent and the creator is actually politically neutral.
  • While never mentioned by name, the episodes make clear that the President is the same as in real life (George W. Bush for the first six original run seasons, Barack Obama for the final two original run seasons and Donald Trump in the revival run).
  • 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.
