Jennifer Aniston has shared a sneak peek at The Morning Show season 2 as she took to Instagram to share the new trailer of the Apple TV series.

Jennifer Aniston starred in the critically acclaimed series The Morning Show which was released in 2019. The series was produced by Apple TV which has been behind some major hits such as The Me You Can't See with Prince Harry and Oprah and Ted Lasso.

Unsurprisingly, fans adored the first series that focused on the cutthroat lives of news anchors working in television journalism.

Fans were delighted when it was announced that The Morning Show was coming back and a teaser trailer was released in June 2021. But many viewers have been waiting with bated breath for the second series of this fantastic show and only now has the star of the series Jennifer Aniston, who plays Alex Levy, posted a trailer for the second season.


The caption of the post says, "Here we go 👏🏼 Season 2 of @themorningshow premieres September 17 on @appletvplus!!

Jennifer shared her praise for the team who worked on the project and told fans that she was excited for fans to see the new season.

She said, "Here’s a first look at our official trailer… so proud of this whole team and counting down the days until you can see the new season for yourself. 🥳"

What we know so far about The Morning Show season 2

In the trailer, it seems that Alex is thrown right back into the action as she returns to work at the UBA after Cory Ellison (played by Billy Cudrup) convinces her to come back to her old haunt.

It's clear that her return causes ripples and Bradley Jackson (played by Reese Witherspoon) makes it clear that she won't be edged out. 

The sneak peek also shows that Steve Carrell will return to his role as disgraced co-host Mitch Kessler. 

Julianna Margulies also joins the main cast for the second season as Laura Peterson. Julianna is best known for her work on the series The Good Wife where she played the lead character Alicia Florrick.

Interestingly the show also decides to incorporate the Pandemic into the storyline of the show. Many TV shows have chosen to avoid the COVID-19 outbreak but the cast are heard in the snippet discussing 'this coronavirus thing' and attempting to 'get ahead' of the story. 

Although it features some lighthearted moments of comedy, serious themes are also broached. Issues of racism, work pressure, and the network's success are portrayed against the backdrop of an upbeat song that encapsulates the show's ability to be humorous but also devastatingly sad.

What has been said about The Morning Show season 2?

Many of Jennifer's A-list pals flocked to support the star in the comment section of this post. Jennifer's former Friends co-star Courteney Cox commented on this post, "Cannot wait!!! Yes!! 👏👏👏."

Kate Hudson also shared her delight on this post and commented underneath the image with a series of flame emojis.

Reese Witherspoon who also stars in this series commented with her support on the post. "Let’s GOOOOO!" she said. 

Although Reese and Jennifer may have had a difficult relationship in the show, the two are clearly pals off stage and only a few months ago Reese Witherspoon shared a sweet message to celebrate co-star Jennifer Aniston's 52nd birthday.

Where can you watch The Morning Show?

The Morning Show is an Apple TV exclusive show. This means that it is not available on any other streaming platforms apart from Apple TV.

Viewers can sign up for a free seven-day trial, after which time you'll be required to pay £4.99 per month.

The first season of the show is still currently available to view on the streaming platform for those who want to catch up ahead of the season 2 debut.

The new season of the show is set to be released in just a few weeks on Friday 17 September 2021.

But until that airs you can see the stars in plenty of other roles. Jennifer Aniston starred in the Friends Reunion only a few months ago which is available to watch on HBO. 

Reese also has some exciting upcoming projects to look forward to as her production company cast Normal People star Daisy Edgar-Jones in the lead role in Reese Witherspoon's Where The Crawdads Sing

Where The Crawdads Sing doesn't have a release date yet, but it already has a lot of hype around it—suggesting it will be one of the best book-to-screen adaptations to hit our screens in a while.
