Apple TV+ has unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming The Morning Show season two, and as you’ll see things get intense. In fact, Billy Crudup shouts in the trailer, “This is a battle for the soul of the universe!”
The series is set in the world of media at a morning news show between a sexual misconduct scandal. In the first season, Alex Levy’s (Jennifer Aniston) on-air partner of 15 years, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), is fired amidst a sexual misconduct scandal, Alex fights to retain her job as a top news anchor while sparking a rivalry with Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), a haphazard field reporter whose series of impulsive decisions brings her into a new world of television journalism.
In the second season, everyone is still reeling from the choices to share that all on air. While the network cut the news feed as an instant response, there is some huge fallout as Alex leaves the show that made her a star. Bradley is furious with her because of this, and Mitch keeps himself in the headlines by sharing his side of the story.
Season 2 also looks like it will handle the COVID-19 pandemic along with racism in the media. In an effort to help improve the rating of the show, Cory Ellison (Crudup) brings Alex back into the fold, and she once again is pitted against Bradley as they each push for power.
Some of the new characters coming to Season 2 comes with Greta Lee as Stella Bak, a tech world wunderkind who joins the UBA executive team; Hasan Minhaj as Eric Nomani, a new member of the titular morning news team; and Julianna Margulies as Laura Peterson, a UBA news anchor who finds herself interviewing Alex.
The Morning Show will come with 10 episodes, and it will air on September 17th.
