The Morning Show - Season 2


Alex Levy anchors The Morning Show (TMS), a popular morning news program broadcast from Manhattan on the UBA network, which has excellent viewership ratings and is perceived to have changed the face of American television.

In the first season, after her on-air partner of 15 years, Mitch Kessler, is fired amidst a sexual misconduct scandal, Alex fights to retain her job as top news anchor while sparking a rivalry with Bradley Jackson, a haphazard field reporter whose series of impulsive decisions brings her into a new world of television journalism.

In the second season, the network CEO attempts to convince Alex to return as the COVID-19 pandemic gradually engulfs the United States and the show itself, whilst Bradley deals with an identity crisis.

On November 8, 2017, it was announced that Apple had given the production a series order consisting of two seasons of ten episodes apiece.

The show cost $15 million per episode, with Aniston and Witherspoon each earning $2 million per episode, not including producing fees and ownership points.[18] On January 10, 2022, Apple renewed the series for a third season.[7]

The second season of the series received a 67% from Rotten Tomatoes based on 51 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "The Morning Show's second season has a slew of stupendous performances - but too many characters attempting to address too many hot-button issues makes it hard to know what any of them are actually trying to say."[41] At Metacritic, the website gave the second season a 60 out of 100, based on 25 reviews.[42]

According to TV analytics provider TVision, The Morning Show has been viewed by panel members 5.03 times as much as the average Apple TV+ original series or shows TVision has measured since Apple TV+ launched in November 2019.[46] The series became the second most watched Apple TV+ series after Ted Lasso.[46]

As the series progressed it became clear that Mitch was, indeed, a villain of sorts. It's clear that he is responsible for all of his bad deeds and should be held accountable for his actions. At least, that is the message season 1 gives. Season 2 gives a very different one. Living in Italy now, Mitch has found a haven in the country, and in love interest, Paola (Valeria Golino).

Season 2 of The Morning Show starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston premieres on Apple TV+ tonight. Witherspoon and Aniston play competitive, morning TV anchors for a company that's in the midst of a major MeToo scandal. But, to keep the show topical, writers made significant changes so that the pandemic would be part of the narrative.

When the coronavirus hit the U.S., the writing and production of The Morning Show's new season was well underway. The entire season had been "broken," as they say in Hollywood. Kerry Erhin, an executive producer and showrunner of the fictional TV series says, "It's a year of working in a writers' room, breaking down the stories scene by scene."

"If you simply have to rewrite the first two episodes and re-break a giant portion of your season midstream that's, from a production perspective, an earthquake," says Ellenberg. "And then the other thing we were managing is, can we actually make this thing safely?"

"I really resisted that for about a day because we had just, you know, broken an entire season," she says, recalling the dreaded moment. "And then after another day, like, it just made sense. It isn't a subject you could avoid, especially doing a show about people covering the news."

Fictional correspondent Daniel Henderson, played by Desean Terry, is the first to raise the pandemic in the newsroom. Terry says this was a case of life and art intersecting. The characters in the TV show faced the same level of uncertainty as the cast did in real life. He says, early in the pandemic, they didn't know exactly how to protect themselves.

This was the second time The Morning Show cast and crew had to rework episodes because of real world events. Originally inspired by Brian Stelter's 2013 book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, Apple TV's fictional series always intended to look at the on and off-screen relationships in the competitive world of morning TV news, including how women are treated. Season 1 episodes had been largely mapped out when the bombshell reporting on Harvey Weinstein led to take-downs of other media figures including NBC's morning anchor Matt Lauer. Michael Ellenberg says, while it wasn't a "wholesale rewrite," changes were made to put sexual misconduct into sharper focus.

While the pandemic is the main thrust of the new season, the storylines that explore social injustices continue. Kerry Ehrin says she always wanted "the second season to be about the kind of shifting tectonic plates under society where things were starting to change and people were trying to figure out who they were."

This marks the highest-profile acting gig to date and first foray into drama for writer-comedian Minhaj, best known for his Peabody-winning Netflix show Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, his standup special for the streamer, Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King, and his stint as a correspondent on The Daily Show.

The Morning Show, executive produced by and starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and produced by Media Res, restarted production on its second season last month following a pandemic-related production hiatus.

The Morning Show explores the cutthroat world of morning news and the lives of the people who help America wake up in the morning. Told through the lens of two complicated women working to navigate the minefield of high-octane jobs while facing crises in both their personal and professional lives, the unapologetically candid drama looks at the power dynamics between women and men, and women and women, in the workplace.

The series is executive produced by Michael Ellenberg through Media Res, which also serves as the studio, along with Aniston and Kristin Hahn through Echo Films; Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter through Hello Sunshine; and Mimi Leder, who also directs several episodes. The series is developed by Kerry Ehrin, who serves as showrunner and is an executive producer. 041b061a72
