Apple TV+ subscribers looking for more after the first episode of The Morning Show Season 2 received a slew of behind-the-scenes photos from Jennifer Aniston after the debut. After nearly a two-year hiatus, Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and Billy Crudup returned to the streaming service on Sept. 17, 2021. Take a look at Aniston’s behind-the-scenes photos to see if you could find any clues about season 2.
‘The Morning Show’ Season 2 Episode 1 recap
When The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 1 picks up, Alex Levy (Aniston) steps away from the news show. She’s hiding out in a snowy cabin in Maine and happy to be away from the chaos and hustle of her former position. However, Cory Ellison (Crudup) persistently tries to bring Alex back into the fold to save the show. Although she declines the offer initially, Cory eventually sways her when he leaves a voicemail during her tarot card reading at a New Year’s Eve Party.
After insisting that Alex can trust him, Cory sees that Hannah Shoenfeld’s (GuGu Mbatha-Raw) family is filing a wrongful death suit against the network after the #MeToo movement events in season 1.
Meanwhile, during the network’s New Year’s Eve broadcast, Bradley dances with her new co-host, Eric Nomani (Hasan Minhaj). During the episode, she finds out about an opening for the evening news and tells Cory of her desire to fill the position. He discourages her because he secretly has plans to give the evening news spot to Eric. Cory’s secret plan is to pull Alex back into the fold of The Morning Show to co-host with Bradley.

Aniston teases what to expect in the upcoming season
Although it looks like Alex receives a warm welcome back, Aniston teased that things do not go as planned in the forthcoming The Morning Show episodes.
“I think she believes that she can bring this newfound integrity into the old devil-she-knows of The Morning Show,” Aniston told People. “And it’s just not as easy, I think, as she expected.”
While Alex was home, Bradley stepped in. It’s going to be a rough transition back for both women.
“Bradley steps into a position where she’s trying to play the game; she’s trying to get ahead,” Witherspoon told Apple TV+. “Bradley becomes the number one lead anchor, and she thinks she’s in control.”
