The plot for Season 2 is still under wraps, but according to the teaser and the official trailer, it seems that Alex and Bradley are no longer morning television’s dream team. The clips also suggest that a new anchor (Hasan Minhaj) has taken Alex’s place.
The official synopsis reads, “Picking up after the explosive events of season one, season two finds “The Morning Show” team emerging from the wreckage of Alex (Aniston) and Bradley’s (Witherspoon) actions to a new UBA and a world in flux, where identity is everything and the chasm between who we present as and who we really come into play.”
The final episode of Season 1 saw Mitch (Steve Carell) revealing that Hannah (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) will corroborate his side of the story. Bradley goes to meet Hannah, who breaks while recalling Mitch’s sexual assault. However, she tells Bradley to not reveal her identity. Elsewhere, Fred (Tom Irwin) knows that moves are being made behind the scene to expose his allowance of sexual misconduct, Fred seeks to gain Alex’s support in firing Chip (Mark Duplass).
On the other hand, Chip is explaining the entire interview plan to his assistant and tells her to smuggle Mitch into the show for a LIVE interview.
Additionally, we get to know Hannah is dead due to an overdose and everyone is shocked to hear that news. As soon as the news spreads, Bradley calls off the interview and a physical fight takes place between Chip and Mitch. Alex and Bradley are LIVE on air and decided to expose Fred and UBA for the knowledge of sexual misconduct and toxic work culture. The show comes to an end as the feed is cut and Alex telling everyone that people should speak about such instances.
