The Upshaws season 3 plot
In the Season 2 finale, Bennie and Lucretia found themselves in a difficult situation when they ended up in jail. Bennie’s attempt to help the auto shop by purchasing cheaper parts turned into a criminal act since the parts were stolen. As Season 3 approaches, it remains uncertain how Bennie will resolve this predicament. The stakes are high, especially considering Lucretia’s anger towards him for involving her as his business partner in this mess. Fans will be eagerly waiting to see how Bennie navigates his way out of trouble before facing Lucretia’s full wrath.
In the Season 2 finale, Regina had reached her breaking point at work and decided to quit her job. Despite the family’s increase in household income at that time, the situation drastically changed with Bennie in jail and their business facing challenges. As the new season begins, Regina might have to reconsider returning to the job she once disliked in order to support the family during these tough times.
In Season 3, the Upshaw children continue to experience their own growing pains. Bernard is still navigating the challenges of parenthood, while Aaliyah struggles with her desire to be popular at school. Meanwhile, Kelvin has to keep adjusting to having a mom who is not Regina, which presents its own set of adjustments for him as an Upshaw family member.
