The second season of the Apple Original drama series, also executive produced by Jennifer Aniston along with Reese Witherspoon, will debut worldwide on Apple TV+ on September 17. The show will premiere with the first episode of the second season, followed by a new episode weekly, every Friday, for a total of ten episodes. (NewsMadura’s Brian Stelter is an advisory producer on the series.)
According to a synopsis of the show, Season 2 takes “The Morning Show” team “from the wreckage of the actions of Alex (Aniston) and Bradley (Witherspoon), to a new UBA and a world on the move, where identity is everything. And the gap between who we present as and who we really are comes into play.”
In addition to Aniston and Witherspoon, the cast for Season 2 includes Steve Carell, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bel Powley, Desean Terry, Janina Gavankar, Tom Irwin and Marcia Gay Harden.
New cast members joining the show include Greta Lee as Stella Bak, a tech prodigy who has joined UBA; Hasan Minhaj as Eric Nomani, a new member of the staff of “The Morning Show”; Holland Taylor as Cybil Richards, the chair of the UBA board, and Julianna Margulies as Laura Peterson, a UBA news anchor.
Aniston’s powerful performance as Alex Levy earned her a SAG Award for Season 1. Crudup’s performance as Cory Ellison earned him an Emmy Award for Supporting Actor in a Drama, as well as a Critics Choice Award. The series also received nominations from the Television Critics Association for Outstanding New Program and a TV Choice Award for Best New Drama.
The first season of “The Morning Show” is now streaming on Apple TV+.
