The Morning Show Season 2: Trailer Teases New Mystery Ahead
Apple TV+ recently revealed the first trailer of season 2 of The Morning Show, teasing the return of Alex Levy after the brutal first season cliffhanger. It opens up with UBA boss Cory Ellison goes to a house covered with snows where Alex exiled herself. He attempts to bring Alex back to the UBA through his dramatic edict- you are the only one who can save us. From there, the scene switched to the workplace constipation that escalates after Alex’s return.
Now, Alex’s return threatens Bradley Jackson’s position. It seems she will try everything to secure her place. As in the trailer, Cory tries to explain to her that he will resolve everything because he’s her boss. But, she quickly utters that she thought he was a friend. It further ratchets up when Bradley calls for the “friend’s reference,” who seems to be Witherspoon (Alex’s younger sister). Elsewhere, Alex seems broken and trying to cope with her personal chaos while bringing new ideas to save the UBA.
Will Address The Pandemic
As the trailer continues, it focuses on early 2020, hinting at the beginning of the pandemic. While the first season focused on sexual assault in the workplace, the second will portray the present-day crisis. Well, the media played a crucial role during the period.

UBA At Its Worst
In the season finale, Alex tried to show behind-the-scenes of the workplace, which would now rave against people. Alex and Bradley will once again appear jostling for the power.

It might create more trouble for UBA after the last season scandal was exposed.
