Severance Season 2 Renewed Confirmed, Cast, Plot & Everything We Know So Far!

Severance, the ultimate work/life balance horror story, came to a dramatic finale on April 8th, and wow, do we have a lot of questions about what happened in the first season.

The Ben-Stiller-directed dystopia, which featured a cast led by Adam Scott, was always unnervingly polished and sterilised. but now the grotty, hidden side behind the shine is being unveiled, and it has the potential to put people’s lives – both at work and at play – in danger.

However, we must now wait to see if we will ever receive answers to some of our most pressing issues while we await word on season two.

Here’s all you need to know about the future of the innies at Lumon Industries, including the timeline for the transition.

Will there be a second season of Severance, and when would it air?

Severance was officially given the green light for season two a week before the finale episode aired.

Ben Stiller remarked, “It’s extremely amazing to see the response from people who love the show – and the degree of fan participation” (via Variety). “Bringing Severance to television has been a long journey; I first read Dan’s pilot over five years ago. It’s always been a multi-season narrative, and I’m thrilled we get to continue us. I’m thankful to our colleagues at Apple TV+, who have been supporting it the whole way. Praise Kier!”

The renewal comes as no surprise, given that the show has consistently grown in popularity, with weekly viewership growing.

By the time it ended, Severance had been the most-watched continuous streaming service for four weeks in a straight, according to data portal ReelGood.

With that deadly season one cliffhanger, it was practically a foregone conclusion that the crew would not be finished with the project.

Severance season 2: Who is in the 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 realised.

Burt, 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 compartmentalised 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.
