Severance Season 2: The whole lot We Know So Far

Spoilers for Severance season 1 ahead.

It’s fitting that, on this era of return-to-office fatigue, mass resignations, “quiet quitting,” and declining skilled ambition, a show concerning the oddities and horrors of labor life would captivate us most.

Apple TV+’s Severance took the world by storm after premiering in February, garnering critical acclaim, a growing fandom, and 14 Emmy nominations. However the sci fi workplace drama from creator/author Dan Erickson and director/executive producer Ben Stiller wowed us not just for its cultural relevance, but additionally for its compelling premise and A-list solid. Starring Adam Scott, John Turturro, Patricia Arquette, Christopher Walken, and more, the drama follows a gaggle of employees at an organization called Lumon who’ve undergone a procedure called severance, which separates their work memories (their “Innie” life) from their personal memories (their “Outie” life). For those of us looking for a healthy work-life balance, that truly doesn’t sound so bad, but because the events of Severance unfold, they prove otherwise.

Along with becoming top-of-the-line recent shows of the yr, Severance has also put a highlight on breakout performers Tramell Tillman, Britt Lower, and Zach Cherry. Luckily, fans will get to see more of them, and the remainder of the solid, now that Severance has been renewed for a second season. Here’s what we all know to date.

When will Severance season 2 come out?

It’s still too early to say. Since renewing the series in April, Apple still hasn’t revealed production plans for the brand new season. Nonetheless, fans spotted an update in Production Weekly saying filming will begin in October 2022. The streamer has yet to publicly confirm the news.

At any time when it arrives, the season will probably be comprised of ten episodes, series creator Dan Erickson confirmed to Variety.

Who will probably be within the solid?

We’re expecting to see more of Adam Scott (Mark Scout), Patricia Arquette (Harmony Cobel/Mrs. Selvig), John Turturro (Irving), Britt Lower (Helly R/Helena), Zach Cherry (Dylan), Dichen Lachman (Ms. Casey/Gemma), Jen Tullock (Devon), Tramell Tillman (Milchik), and Christopher Walken (Burt Goodman) in season 2. Recent casting announcements haven’t been made yet.

Is there a trailer?

Not yet, but Apple included a Severance easter egg in the course of the Apple Event on Sept. 7, which could either be an early glimpse at season 2 or simply an innocent cameo. The short clip features Helly (or is it Helena?) dressed for work, getting on the subway. (Catch it on the tail-end of this stream.)

What is going to season 2 be about?

Season 1’s cliffhanger ending sets up plenty of inquiries to be, hopefully, answered in season 2. The finale finds Innie Mark, Helly, and Irving waking up of their Outie selves after hours, discovering what their real lives are like beyond the office. The trio make some mind-blowing discoveries before they’re eventually caught.

First, there’s the massive bombshell reveal: Mark learns his wife is alive—specifically, Innie Mark realizes that Outie Mark’s supposedly deceased wife Gemma is definitely Ms. Casey, the girl who runs the wellness sessions within the Lumon office. Will Innie Mark get to inform Ms. Casey? Would she even consider him if she’s severed too? Where is Outie Gemma? And can Outie Mark discover what really happened to her? The revelation also arrives while a romance is blossoming between Innie Mark and Helly R. That potential love triangle will probably be covered in season 2. Stiller explained to Variety that “we’re beginning to root for [Innie Mark] and Helly, but now we also wish to root for Outie Mark to seek out his wife. That’s an interesting juxtaposition and conflict we’ll explore within the second season.”

Speaking of Helly, she has a multitude of her own to take care of. Within the finale, she discovers that her Outie is Helena Egan, daughter of the Lumon Industries CEO, which explains why her Innie is stuck in her job. At a gala for Lumon luminaries, Helly tells the group, as her Innie self, that severed employees are miserable and imprisoned before she’s rushed offstage.

“What was really necessary for me, playing Helly, was to convey what she values most is her freedom and autonomy,” Lower told “And when those are taken away, she goes to great lengths to fight back against a system that she feels is unethical. In order that brings up for me, the subsequent big query is like, When is it an excellent idea to interrupt the foundations in an effort to preserve one’s sanity and humanity?”

On the subject of breaking rules, what’s going to occur to Dylan? He’s the one within the control room holding down the vital switches so his colleagues could get up of their Outie lives. But at the top of the finale, Milchik finds him and tries to get him to let go by dropping one other bombshell reveal: Outie Dylan three kids, not only one. Dylan holds still, though, and ultimately, Milchik tackles him, setting the switches loose and putting his Innie and Outie friends back of their place. In Lumon’s weird and torturous gamut of punishments, what would consequences be for a violation this serious? What is going to they do to Dylan, and can he ever see his kids again?

“Once you already know that you just’re a father, it literally just shifts your whole value system and sense of what’s necessary,” Erickson told Deadline. “So now, we get to hopefully see how that type of shift plays out for all of the characters, and for management, too.”

And eventually, Will Irving and Burt reunite? After the 2 became sweet office lovers on the severed floor, Burt retires (though Irving suspects management had something to do with it). When he wakes up in his Outie life, Innie Irving discovers his home is stuffed with paintings of the dark hallway resulting in the elevator to the testing floor? Is that connected to the black goo he keeps seeing at work? Erickson tells Deadline “we’re going to return to grasp more about what outie Irving is doing and the way this process worked.”

Irving also learns that his Outie has been investigating Lumon employees too, and uses his research to seek out where the Outie Burt lives. Sadly, Irving finds him living with one other partner, but he bangs on the door eager to see him again—right before Dylan lets go of the switches.

While we await the official synopsis and plot details, Stiller teased to Decider, “There are definitely some really fun, weird things in Season 2.”
