The Morning Show season 2 is coming back – hallelujah.
The Apple TV+ series stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon as frenemy morning TV presenters.
With the show coming back for series two, Apple has finally unveiled a first-look.
The Morning Show season 2 trailer: What is the plot?
The first series of The Morning Show saw Jennifer Aniston’s character, Alex Levy, fight to keep her job after her co-star was fired.
Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) was sacked amidst a sexual misconduct scandal that was swiftly covered up. As a result, the network hired Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon) as his fiery replacement.
In the finale, Alex shocked viewers by breaking down live on-air and revealing how the network covered up the scandal.
Season two will showcase the fallout of Alex’s revelations.
It’s also known that the Covid-19 pandemic will be factored in to the show.
“We had a good six or maybe seven outlines already done, and we were in the middle of shooting [episodes] one and two,” Jennifer previously told Deadline.
“And then the COVID crisis happened… Now, Kerry [the creator] is back to the drawing board, and we are incorporating COVID in a way that is so exciting.”
In a first-look trailer, Alex’s co-stars applaud the presenter as she walks through the newsroom after her meltdown.
However, not everything is as rosy as it seems. Bradley can be seen looking concerned as she lies down on the floor in her office.
What will the consequences be for Alex and Bradley? Will they get to keep their jobs?
