Apple has earlier surprised us when it entered the smartphone market. Now it has done it again by foraying into the streaming media. AppleTV+ was a bold risk that the apple authorities took Alas, that risk proved successful after seeing how good the ratings of The Morning Show were and not to forget the three golden globe nominations the show received too in its debut season.
The show, which stars high profile cast, like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, showcases the inside life of morning TV shows’ cutthroat world.
The series is based on Ben Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, the series is ten episodes long and focuses on sensitive topics like MeToo.
The show has captured a massive fan following in just ten episodes, who are now waiting for season 2 to come as soon as possible.
The show has also got an above-average IMDB rating of 8.4.
When is The Morning Show season 2 release date?
Apple has officially confirmed that the production house is gearing up for season 2, although, it is not much of a surprise, the producers had already made up their mind for a two ten-episode series. Considering the tumultuous end of season 1, fans anticipated that there is much more left to explore in season 2.
Sources stated that three scripts for season 2 were completed, the show expected to start filming in summer 2020, expected to begin streaming on the AppleTV+ by November. But then, the pandemic happened, and everything came to a standstill.
So, now because of the pandemic, we can expect the show to go on the floor in March next year. Calculating all the time required in writing, filming, and editing, March 2021, is the show’s most expected release date.
Who is in The Morning Show season 2 cast?
As for now, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are expected to reprise their role as co-host of the morning TV show. The first installment finale hinted that Steve Carell’s character might not return to the next season, but due to the viewer’s demand, the writer could make a storyline on his role, like how he faces his life after the wrath of MeToo on him.
Also, it is confirmed that Nicole Kidman will be a part of season 2. With already two strong actresses on board, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, the addition of another great actress will make the show worth watching.
Zack Braff, an actor famous for his role as J.D. on scrubs, was also called to guest star in one of the episodes. But, then, the virus outbreak happened, and everything was stalled, but whenever the show resumes filming, there is a high possibility that Zack Braff will essay a short but significant appearance in the show.
What is the plot of The Morning Show season 2?
In the first season, we saw a tinge of the Cold War between Alex and Bradley, the characters of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, so in season 2, we could hope to see a new bond of friendship brewing between them.
As the finale episode ended in chaos, with nobody having any idea of who is in charge of this show, fallen leadership, broken love relationship, indeed, a season 2 is needed to amend all of these things.
Also, there will be an entry of a new character, portrayed by Nicole Kidman, the type of character she will play is not yet revealed, but we are sure that it will step-up the ratings of the show.
The previous season dealt with trending social topics like MeToo. So in the next season, there is a possibility that it would deal with Homophobia, Gender pay parity, and feminism. As nowadays in the USA #BlackLivesMatter is trending all around, there is a high possibility that it could become the central theme of the whole series.
There is also speculation that Steve Carell’s character, Mitch Kessler, can have a more prominent role in season 2. Although Steve’s contract was only for one year but seeing the demand of his character among the fans, the producers have thought of giving it a try.
Where to watch/stream The Morning Show tv series online?
The morning show season 1 is exclusively present on AppleTV+, you could either purchase a monthly subscription or can try a seven-day free trial. If you are aiming to watch only this show, we would suggest you opt for a seven-day free trial as seven days are enough to binge-watch a ten-episode series. Moreover, it is much more economical to switch for a free trial, then a monthly subscription.
The show is not available on any other streaming platforms, like Netflix or Hulu, as all of them are a nemesis to AppleTV+. Presently, it is only available on AppleTV+, but maybe in future Apple buy other streaming platforms, it can be available on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
