We’re less than a month away from the debut of the next season of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, and there’s a new trailer out to offer more detail of what we can expect.
In short: a lot more of the interpersonal (and inter-business drama) that dominated the first season. Picking up after the explosive events of season one, season two finds the show-within-the-show’s team emerging from the wreckage of Alex (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley’s (Reese Witherspoon) actions, to a new UBA and a world in flux, where identity is everything and the chasm between who we present as and who we really are comes into play. Racism, sexism and the future of news continue to play a part, while the pandemic is also lurking.
Billy Crudup returns as UBA executive Cory Ellison, still trying to keep things together, alongside the likes of Mark Duplass, Bel Powley, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Desean Terry, Janina Gavankar, Tom Irwin and Marcia Gay Harden, while Steve Carell‘s disgraced former anchor Mitch Kessler floats around the edges.
New this season are Greta Lee as Stella Bak, a wunderkind from the tech world who has joined the UBA executive ranks, Hasan Minhaj as Eric Nomani, a new member of the Morning Show team, Holland Taylor as Cybil Richards, the savvy chairwoman of the UBA board, and Julianna Margulies as Laura Peterson, a UBA news anchor who looks to be stirring things up between Alex and Bradley. The Morning Show will return on 17 September with one episode, with new instalments arriving weekly.
