Warning: the following lines contain spoilers relating to the first season of The Morning Show. So be sure to go your way if you haven’t seen it yet and keep the surprise intact.
WHAT DOES IT TALK ABOUT ?
An uncompromising portrait of the scenes of a morning TV in the United States, where ego, ambitions and the desperate quest for power generate tensions within the team. Among these people who are helping America wake up, two women are trying to get out of the game. And the business is not easy in this ruthless environment, especially since they have to deal with their personal life.
THE REST, THE OTHER HAND …?
At the end of 2019, in front of the spectators of The Morning Show, Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon) let the truth come to light. The duo / duel described live on air the sexist environment in which they operate and the trivialization of harassment and sexual assault behind the scenes, and sometimes even on set.
The 2nd salvo will therefore deal with the effects of this announcement, without forgetting the consequences of the death of Hannah Shoenfeld (Gugu Mbatha-Raw).
As revealed by the first seconds of the teaser for season 2 of the series, Alex has made the decision to leave his post and thus leaves the full powers of animation to his rival. But it was without counting on the producers of the chain UBA who obviously do not hear it that way.
Determined to restore the image of UBA, Cory Ellison (Billy Crudup) will quickly turn to Alex to ask him to come back, at the risk of again attracting the wrath of Bradley who tries somehow to adapt to its new co-presenter…. For his part, Mitch (Steve Carell) will continue his campaign to whitewash by blaming his former colleagues.
NEW SCANDALS AND NEW HEADS
After the sex scandals in the middle of the post #MeeToo era, The Morning Show will tackle discrimination since it is this time accusations of racism that will threaten UBA’s future.
The authors of these 10 new episodes have also taken care to rewrite the scenario to integrate the COVID-19 crisis and its repercussions in the world of information and the media.
Who says new intrigues also obviously means new faces, with the arrival with great pomp of the character of Laura Peterson, freshly arrived at UBA and who will quickly become Bradley’s mentor, for better or for worse. A strong head embodied by Julianna Margulies, known to fans of series for her roles in Emergencies and The Good Wife.
She will be joined by other new faces: Greta Lee (Russian Doll), Ruairi O’Connor (Conjuring: Under the influence of the Devil); Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show), Holland Taylor (My Uncle Charlie); Tara Karsian (American Horror Story). Without forgetting Valeria Golino, known for her very long and successful international film career, marked by French (Portrait of the young girl on fire), Italian (Respiro) and American (Rain Man) successes.
After a long wait of nearly 2 years, fans of The Morning Show will finally be able to discover the second season of the series, from September 17, 2021 on the Apple TV + platform, with one episode uploaded every Friday. !
