The Morning Show is returning for a second season and will premiere on the 17th of September, on Apple TV+.
The first season which depicted real-life events, like the #MeToo movement, was a huge hit in its genre, earning a couple of Emmy nominations in its first season, with Billy Crudup winning for Outstanding Supporting Actor. The Morning Show itself is set around the titular show and the lives of the men and women who bring the show to life, battling internal conflicts and corporate war between UBA and YDA.
The trailer that came out recently gives us hints of what we should expect in the upcoming season, including new and reprising characters, storylines and theme. The series’ trailer proves that the show will be much better than the previous one as the producers have pulled in an ensemble cast.
