Plus, a lot more drama to come.

As The Morning Show season 2’s release edges closer, we’re relishing in yet another sneak peek at Apple TV’s series starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon—and yes, it’s shaping up to be another must-watch. 

In the newly dropped trailer, the leading actresses appear to be tackling life at the network after that season 1 cliffhanger, which saw co-anchor Mitch Kessler accused of sexual misconduct while Alex and Bradley outed the network for its misgivings.

As season 2’s release approaches, we now know that Alex leaves, and then returns to the network, while a stagnant Bradley is far from content. There’s also mention of COVID-19 in the latest trailer, meaning we’ll get to see how the anchors deal with the pandemic—pretty much in real time.

What will happen in The Morning Show season 2? 

Expect to see what happens next for Mitch after those sexual misconduct allegations, along with a departure, then subsequent return to the network for Alex—the latter of which doesn’t appear to sit right with former ally, Bradley. 

Another big theme expected in season 2 is the COVID-19 pandemic, something Director Mimi Leder was keen to execute in order for the show to “reflect the world we live in”. 

The show will also delve into themes of racism and systemic disadvantage to people of colour at the network.
