Few TV shows were as daring and relevant to that change as The Morning Show, which serves as a brilliant if bombastic dismantlement of these once-sacred systems. It was one of the first shows to launch Apple’s new streaming platform Apple TV+, boasting stars like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell.
And that was in September 2019. For a drama about a daytime show, its central news anchors have plenty to catch up with. Here’s everything we know about season two.
What's the Morning Show season 2 story?
In season one, the sleazy broadcaster Mitch (Carell) is fired from The Morning Show for sexual misconduct. Everyone is devastated, his co-anchor Alex (Aniston) most of all. To rebel against her superiors, who want to remove her, she brings in the enjoyably outspoken Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon) to present the news with her. But this presents its own problems, as Bradley is intent on telling uncomfortable news on a programme that thrives on escapism.
Few details have emerged for season two, but the story takes place in the aftermath of the season one finale. Alex and Bradley finally speak out about the toxic and predatory work environment of The Morning Show. That is, until they’re cut off. As a result, the UBA network is enduring a dangerous state of change.
Alex has left the show, but a blonder Bradley is sticking around. And the duplicitous UBA president Fred is still lurking in the corridors, sparring with the well-meaning, chaos-loving executive Cory.
Also, considering episodes in season one involved real-life stories – including Harvey Weinstein, the wildfires in California, and the shootings in Las Vegas – it’s likely Covid will come up.
Who's in the Morning Show season 2 cast?
Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell are all returning to their central roles. Season two also welcomes back Mark Duplass as The Morning Show’s former EP Charlie Black, Billy Crudup as UBA executive Cory Ellison, and Tom Irwin as the UBA's president Fred Micklen.
New additions to the cast include Greta Lee (Russian Doll), Ruairi O’Connor (The Conjuring 3), Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show), Holland Taylor (Hollywood), Tara Karsian (American Horror Story), Valeria Golino (Portrait of a Lady on Fire), and Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife).
