Apple TV+ released a new trailer promoting its upcoming star-studded slate on Friday as part of the winter Television Critics Association press tour, and in a few blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments, footage from the upcoming season of The Morning Show were sprinkled throughout the two-minute teaser.
In the opening seconds, the camera focuses in on Aniston’s Alex Levy as she sits across an unknown figure, looking as if she’s bracing for what’s coming. Another glimpse sees Witherspoon’s Bradley Jackson leaning against the wall behind her with a distressed expression on her face as she lets out a deep sigh. There are also snapshots of Steve Carell’s disgraced host, Mitch Kessler, in a car en route to a destination yet unknown and Bradley “cheers”-ing at a fancy dinner party.
Joining Aniston, Witherspoon and Carell in season 2 is new addition Julianna Margulies, who will play Laura Peterson, anchor at UBA News, the umbrella division under which Alex and Bradley’s morning show is housed. Greta Lee, Hasan Minhaj and Ruairi O’Connor are among the new cast members in the ensemble, which includes Mark Duplass, Billy Crudup, Nestor Carbonell, Bel Powell, Karen Pittman and Desean Terry.
