A second season of Apple TV+‘s The Morning Show has been confirmed for later this year – watch its first trailer below.
The show, executive produced by and starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, debuted its first season on the new streaming service in 2019 and saw the pair as co-anchors of a TV news show.
The new 10-episode season will premiere from September 17 on the service, with new episodes dropping each Friday.
The new trailer sees the aftermath of Aniston and Witherspoon’s on-air whistleblowing moment from the end of the first season. Alex (Aniston) appears to break her on-screen partnership with Bradleys (Witherspoon) by leaving the show after the incident.
