When “Severance” debuted on Apple TV+ in February 2022, it was called “one of the best new shows of the last couple of years” (via RogerEbert.com). “Severance” is part workplace drama and part sci-fi thriller. It is inspired by both Kafka’s fantastical realism and Alan J. Pakula’s stark paranoia in his best movies.
The show is about a mysterious biotech company called Lumon Industries. They use a program called “severance,” which is a medical procedure that separates an employee’s home life and work life, making them into two different people. This radical look at “work-life balance” focuses on the people in the Macro data Refinement division who spend their days (or, as they see it, their whole lives) sorting numbers into digital folders.
Apple TV+ announced that “Severance” would be back for a second season before the first season’s finale on Friday, April 8. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming second season of the popular show.
Severance Season 2 Renewed Status
Season 2 of Severance has been renewed for early 2023.
Severance Season 2 Release Date Details
At the time this was written, there was no official date for Season 2 of Severance. Since the first season came out in February of this year, it seems likely that Season 2 will come out in 2023 or early 2024, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.
Severance Season 2 Expected Cast?
The return of the main four cast members was announced along with the renewal announcement. Adam Scott (Mark), Britt Lower (Helly), Zach Cherry (Dylan), and John Turturro are among them (Irving).
Mrs. Cobel’s calculating office manager, Patricia Arquette, and Milchek’s sidekick/enforcer, Tramell Tillman, are also returning — with a price to pay.
Dichen Lachman, who played the very distant and monotonous office therapist, Ms. Casey, will likely play a larger role in the tale moving forward since it was revealed she was significantly more intertwined with Mark’s life than we previously realized.
But, Irving’s sweet-natured love interest will be reprised by Christopher Walken, which may be useful depending on how much Burt found that we didn’t witness in the closing episode of season one.
Of course, given Lumon’s convoluted universe of never-ending hallways and compartmentalized offices, there’s always the possibility that we’ll meet more newbies.
What Will The Plot Of Severance Season 2 Be?
Season two of Severance will almost certainly be more dramatic than the first, given the season one conclusion blew a huge hole in the Core Office Four’s life.
Helly has ruined a big business event intended to support the severance procedure after learning that her father, Mr. Eagan, is in a prominent role at Lumon.
Irving may be nursing a wounded heart after learning that, in the outside world, Burt was happily married and planned a new life after retirement, unbeknownst to both of them. Before his brain was switched back into “outie” mode, Mark managed to inform his sister about what was going on with his “innie,” and informed her that his presumed-dead wife is still alive, with an “innie” of her working at Lumon.
Finally, Dylan’s destiny was cast into doubt after he sacrificed himself to stay in the office and keep open the switches that allowed others to convert from “outie” to “innie” mode.
Milchek’s bursting into the room he was in during the last minutes of the series indicates that he will most likely face some severe punishment. As we’ve seen, this may be a form of agony for the “innies” trapped in the workplace.
With Cole on the loose after losing her job, it appears like a battle between the innies and the outies is building, as the innies want to break free from their monotonous 9-to-5 lives.
