The Morning Show has been one of Apple TV’s standout shows and fans will be delighted to hear that season 2 is already in the works.
When it comes to hard-hitting drama series, not many did it better than Apple TV’s The Morning Show.
The series followed Alex Levy, a 15-year veteran anchor of an American breakfast show who struggles to keep her job after her co-anchor is fired amidst sexual misconduct allegations.
With a compelling storyline and all-star cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell, the show was a hit with viewers.
Now, fans of the series are looking ahead and wondering if and when The Morning Show will return for a second season.
The Morning Show season 2: Renewal status
Fans of The Morning Show will be glad to hear that the series has been renewed for season 2 Apple and is already in the works.
Considering that The Morning Show was one of Apple’s flagship series last year, this may not have come to a surprise for fans, but its always a relief getting an official announcement.
In fact, the streaming platform announced the renewal just about a week after season 1 first premiered, suggesting that they predicted how popular the show would become. With that type of enthusiasm behind the series, fans are hopeful that this means the show could become a staple part of Apple TV in the future.
The Morning Show season 2: Release date
At the time of writing, there is no official release date for The Morning Show season 2.
Initial reports did suggest that we could see a second instalment released as soon as November 2020.
“We’re writing the show now, we’ll film it this summer and we’ll be on next November.” – Kerry Ehrin.
Unfortunately, it was recently announced that The Morning Show had to shut down production because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“In concert with our dedicated partners at Apple, we have concluded it would be prudent to take a two-week hiatus to assess the situation and ensure the safety of the incredible people who make this show.” – Michael Ellenberg.
Hopefully, if production can restart soon and the scheduling can get back on track, fans can expect season 2 to premiere in early-2021.
The Morning Show season 2: Storyline
With the initial release date was reported to be in November 2020, many fans believed that this meant season 2 would draw from the current political landscape.
However, speaking to Variety Ehrin shot down those predictions: “I don’t write to the news. It’s not that kind of a show.”
In which case, we can expect The Morning Show’s second instalment to follow the aftermath of season 1 and the consequences for the sexual misconduct allegations.
“It’s like a huge building fell on everybody and it’s about escaping from the wreckage.” – Kerry Ehrin.
Season 1 of The Morning Show is available to watch right now on Apple TV.
