After nearly two years since its initial debut, fans of The Morning Show will be relieved to see the first official teaser trailer for Season 2 of the Emmy, SAG and Critics Choice award-winning show.
The Morning Show co-anchors played by Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon concluded the first season with a takedown of the broadcast network, exposing a work culture bubbling over with misogyny and sexual misconduct. Such an outing - you would imagine - would have significant repercussions, but for whom? The new teaser answers some of that question whilst posing many more.
Alex Levy (Aniston) has left the show within a show despite continued courting from Cory (Crudup), the insanely terrifying news executive. Bradley (Witherspoon) remains the face of the network alongside a new anchor, bringing into question whether or not she was playing games all along once the door to the network had been left ajar. Most exciting of all is the introduction of Laura Peterson (Julianna Marguilies), who will play a strong and stabilising force within the broadcast network.
A list of newcomers will join Emmy and SAG Award-winner Julianna Marguilies to the show; Greta Lee as Stella Bak, a tech savvy wunderkind ; Ruairi O’Connor as Ty Fitzgerald, a smart and charismatic YouTuber ; Hasan Minhaj as Eric Nomani, new the Morning Show co-anchor; Emmy Award-winner Holland Taylor as Cybil Richards, chairwoman of the UBA board; Tara Karsian as Gayle Berman, a news producer; and Valeria Golino as Paola Lambruschini, a documentary filmmaker.
Alongside executive producers and on-screen stars Aniston and Witherspoon, the returning cast includes Steve Carell, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bell Powley, Desean Terry, Janina Gavankar, Tom Irwin and Marcia Gay Harden.
Led by executive producer and showrunner Kerry Ehrin, The Morning Show’s second season will once again set out to question the chasm between who we present as and who we really are.
