Workplace thriller 'Severance' returns to Apple TV+ in early 2025

An Apple TV+ teaser image for the second season of 'Severance'

The return of Lumon Industries to Apple TV+ is on the way, with the second season of "Severance" landing on the streaming service on January 17.

After a critical reception, the second season of Severance has been in production for over a year, but now the wait to see it is only a few months away.

In a YouTube trailer released on Wednesday, Apple confirms that the second season of the show will premiere on January 17, 2025.

Severance follows Mark Scout, played by Adam Scott, who leads a team at the secretive Lumon Industries. To ensure a "work-life balance," employees under go a "severance," a surgical procedure to separate the memories of their work and personal lives.

The first season had Mark and other employees uncover an unraveling mystery surrounding his work. The second season will deal with the employees learning about piercing the severance barrier and its consequences.

The cast also includes Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Zach Cherry, Jen Tulloch, Michael Chernus, Dichen Lachman, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, Patricia Arquette, and Sarah Bock. It is executive produced by Ben Stiller, who also directs five episodes for the second season.

The second season started filming in October 2022, but it has had a troubled production.

There were reports the showrunners hated each other, causing delays. Production also paused in May 2023, during the second week of the Writers Guild of America strike.
