The much-awaited second season of Severance on Apple TV Plus will be released on January 17, 2025. This news is a bit of a mixed bag for fans who hoped to see it this year.

However, the anticipation is bound to make the wait worthwhile. The first teaser, a brief 30-second clip, has given us a sneak peek of what’s in store.

Confirmed and Rumored Cast

Expect to see the main cast returning for Severance Season 2. Adam Scott (Mark S / Mark Scout), Zach Cherry (Dylan G / Dylan George), Britt Lower (Helly R / Helena Egan), John Turturro (Irving B / Irving Bailiff), Patricia Arquette (Harmony Cobel), Tramell Tillman (Seth Milchick), Christopher Walken (Burt G / Burt Goodman), Dichen Lachman (Ms. Casey), Jen Tullock (Devon Hale), and Michael Chernus (Ricken Hale) are all back.

Alongside them, eight new faces will join the series, including Gwendoline Christie, Bob Balaban, Robby Benson, Stefano Carannante, John Noble, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Alia Shawkat, and Merritt Wever.

Plot Speculations

Severance Season 2 is expected to pick up immediately after the dramatic events of Season 1. For those unfamiliar, the show centers around Lumon Industries, a company that splits its employees’ consciousness into work and personal selves.

This unique premise allows employees to separate their work and personal lives completely.

In Season 1, we saw Mark S and his colleagues at Lumon Industries start to uncover the dark truths about their workplace.

The finale ended on a cliffhanger with the ‘innies’ (work selves) of Mark, Helly, and Irving briefly experiencing the outside world. Season 2 will likely delve deeper into these discoveries, exploring the ramifications of their brief escape.

Trailer Insights

While there isn’t a full trailer yet, the first footage from Severance Season 2 was revealed during Apple’s WWDC 2024 event. This teaser showed Adam Scott’s Mark arriving at Lumon Industries, greeted by Seth Milchick.

Another clip from the iPhone 14 event showed Helly disembarking from a subway train, hinting at more intricate plot developments.

Future Seasons

There’s no official word on whether Severance will continue beyond Season 2, but the show’s success and the breadth of its storylines suggest more seasons could be in the pipeline.

Creator Dan Erickson and director Ben Stiller have both hinted at an expanding narrative, which could mean more seasons exploring the world inside and outside Lumon Industries.
