Severance, the ultimate work/life balance horror story on Apple TV+, ended its tragic first season on April 8 and left viewers begging for more information. Who, after all, casually wraps up a series like that with the future uncertain?
Fortunately, a second season was ready not long after the show’s season one finale; all we have to do now is wait for it to return to our screens.
It makes you wish we had a severed brain so we could go on to the next season, doesn’t it?
The Ben Stiller-directed dystopia, which features a cast led by Adam Scott, has always been unsettlingly dazzling and sterile. However, now that the grotty, hidden side beneath the shine is out, it may contain lives.
Severance season 2 Release date
Severance received official season two approval the week before the season one finale aired. The show has been steadily becoming a cult favorite with a rising audience weekly, so the renewal is not entirely unclear.
Data source By the time Severance neared its end, ReelGood said it had been the most-watched ongoing streaming service for four weeks in a row.
With that jaw-dropping season one cliffhanger, it was sure that the production crew would continue with the show.
Debatable is when the show will return to our screens. Filming started in March 2022, and after production and editing, we estimate it will take around two years to complete.
The cast of Severance season 2
The return of the core four cast members was out along with the renewal news. Adam Scott, who portrays Mark, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, who portrays Dylan, and John Turturro (Irving).
Tramell Tillman, who plays Milchek, Mrs. Cobel’s sidekick and enforcer, and Patricia Arquette, who plays Mrs. Cobel, are also back with a fury.
Dichen Lachman, who portrayed the oddly aloof and monotone office therapist Ms. Casey, is one performer ready to take on a significantly more significant role in season two. Ms. Casey appeared in a small number of scenes throughout season one, providing the innies with subpar observations about the outside world while doing “health checks.”
By the course of the series, it becomes clear, nevertheless, that she is much more involved in Mark’s life than initially thought. She is his presumed dead wife, which is a whole other situation Mark now needs to unravel and understand.
In addition, Christopher Walken will return as Irving’s sweetheart Burt, which may be helpful depending on how much Burt learned that wasn’t revealed in the season one finale.
Of course, there’s always a chance we’ll meet more new people as Lumon is a convoluted place with endless hallways and compartmentalized offices.
Particularly considering how eager the producers are to capitalize on the (excellent) season one cast’s influence with some incredible dream season 2 guest cameos.
On the other hand, Erickson hoped to propose a cameo to former US President Barack Obama at the Emmys. Obama was recognized in September for his work as the excellent narrator of the Netflix documentary series Our Great National Parks, so he may try to do more TV in the future.
The plot of Severance season 2
Given how the season one finale devastated the lives of the Core Office Four, Severance will be far more devastating than the first.
Helly has ruined a significant business event planned to promote the severance process after learning that her father, Mr. Eagan, is a significant Lumon player. As a result, her innie may have to pay a high price, or her outie may have a lot of work to hide what transpired.
As a result of learning that his “innie” love interest Burt was a happily living guy who was about to get in a marriage, Irving may be somewhere caring for a broken heart.
Irving originally went away, but in the closing seconds, he was trying to reach Burt by pounding on his front door. It’s not clear if he managed to reveal who he was in time to avoid being put back into his outie form.
Before his brain was turned back into “outie” mode, Mark could inform his sister of what was happening with his “innie” and inform her that his presumed-dead wife Gemma is still alive and working for Lumon.
We are still unsure if Gemma has been away from Lumon or if she is actively cooperating with him while fully aware of what is happening.
After Dylan gave up his life to stay in the workplace and hold open the switches that allowed the others to transition from “outie” to “innie” mode, his future of Dylan was with a big question mark.
Michel would most likely face terrible punishment at the hands of the enraged office manager after breaking into the room he was in during the series’ final minutes, which can be equivalent to agony for the “innies” trapped in the office, as we’ve already seen.
Sorry, guys, there isn’t a complete trailer available yet that reveals what the future holds for the innies or the outies.
