Apple’s The Morning Show is headed back to production. The award-winning series is slated to restart filming its second season on October 19. As is the case with any production during COVID, the date is tentative and subject to change.
Led by Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, The Morning Show‘s Season 1 series regular cast is coming back (sans Gugu Mbatha-Raw for reasons related to her character’s storyline). That includes Steve Carell who originally had signed a one-year deal. While his return had not been confirmed, The Morning Show producers had made it clear that they wanted him back and had indicated that they were pursuing a new deal with the actor.
Mark Duplass who plays Chip Black in the show told Deadline in August that the whole 2nd season of the show is being rewritten to better reflect the COVID19 pandemic and the changes that have come along with it. Duplass also stated that the writers of the show were working to better highlight the #MeToo movement and its greater impact.
