So, what’s going on with The Morning Show Season 2? Why hasn’t aired on Apple TV Plus yet? It was supposed to be released on the new Apple streaming service back in November 2020, however, it never turned up. Why was that? Well, we’re here to let you know what really happened and when The Morning Show Season 2 will air on Apple TV Plus.
It’s time to do some sleuthing to figure out when The Morning Show Season 2’s release date will be on Apple TV Plus. First off, if you’ve watched the first season then you might be a bit surprised to learn that Apple did greenlight a second season. According to IndieWire, Apple was so confident in the show that they greenlight the second season before the first one aired. The show then went on to receive Emmy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations, even securing a SAG win for Aniston as lead actress and a supporting actor win for Crudup.
The Morning Show Season 2 is still happening
Interestingly enough, The Morning Show Season 2 was supposed to come out in November 2020. However, that never happened, and there have been multiple delays and postponements due to the global pandemic. It seems like Season 2 was particularly badly hit by the pandemic. This means that its release date won’t be until the later part of 2021. It may even be pushed into 2022. That said, it is coming and I cannot wait to see what happens in this second season.
Showrunner Kerry Ehrin had the following to say while speaking to Variety last year:
We’re writing the show now; we’ll film it this summer; and we’ll be on next November.
However, then the pandemic hit and filming was put on hold. Production on The Morning Show Season 2 was then resumed on October 19th, Deadline reported. Witherspoon confirmed the news with a tweet, saying, “And We are Bacccckkkkk!”
Witherspoon told Regina King in Variety’s Actors on Actors series that the team was “four weeks in” when production halted. She continued:
So we are going to get back as soon as people are going to let us back to work
When will The Morning Show Season 2 hit Apple TV Plus
The actress then posted a video via her Instagram account in which she revealed that they were back filming the second season, captioning the video with the phrase: “Guess who’s back!!!”

So, it seems as though things are happening on Season 2, but they’re going along quite slowly. However, only good things come to those who wait. Isn’t that what they say?
