Season 2 of Apple TV+’s flagship series The Morning Show is less than a month away from returning on Friday, September 27 and the streamer is offering a fresh look at the chaos brewing at UBA.

Picking up where Season 1 left off, this next chapter sees The Morning Show team emerging from the wreckage following Alex (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley’s (Reese Witherspoon) on-air actions. Identity is everything as UBA finds its footing amid an avalanche of controversy.

The second season will explore the identities of the team shining a light on who they appear to be versus who they really are. Teased in the trailer, below, real-world issues like the COVID-19 pandemic and racial tensions across America affect the inner workings of the show and appear to influence some characters’ motivations.

Meanwhile, Alex is on her way out when the show first picks up, but Billy Crudup‘s Cory Ellison isn’t letting her go that easily. “Alex, I need you to come back. You are the only thing that can save us,” he pleads with her before adding with a laugh, “don’t think I’ve ever said that before.”
