Apple TV+ has unveiled the first trailer for The Morning Show Season 2, and they’ve also announced it’s set to premiere on September 17th.
Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon both give incredible performances in the first season. The series is set in the world of media, more specifically a morning news show amid a sexual misconduct scandal.
After her on-air partner of 15 years, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), is fired amidst a sexual misconduct scandal, Alex fights to retain her job as top news anchor while sparking a rivalry with Bradley Jackson, a haphazard field reporter whose series of impulsive decisions brings her into a new world of television journalism.
A lot has changed since we last saw veteran anchor Alex Levy (Aniston) and newcomer Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon) come together to speak out about operating in a toxic culture on live TV.
As the second season starts everyone is still reeling from the decisions to share that all on air. While the network cut the news feed as a quick response, there is some important 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 giving his side of the story.
The trailer also revealed some new characters including Greta Lee as Stella Bak, a tech world wunderkind who follows 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.
