The trailer begins with Corey Ellison (Billy Crudup) determined to get Alex Levy (Aniston) back presenting The Morning Show, after her explosive on-air testimony exposed UBA's culture of silence regarding sexual misconduct complaints made against disgraced former anchor, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carrell).

Anchoring the show alongside Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon) in the wake of Alex's departure is newcomer Eric Nomani, portrayed by Hasan Minhaj.

The official synopsis for The Morning Show's new episodes reads: "Picking up after the explosive events of season 1, season 2 finds the Morning Show team emerging from the wreckage of Alex and Bradley's 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 are comes into play."
