Severance Season 2 Gets First Trailer And Premiere Date

Make sure your outie schedules time off for January 2025.


Almost three years after the show's debut, Severance Season 2 is set to launch January 17, 2025, on Apple TV+. Then, new episodes--10 in total--will release each Friday through March 21.

Warning: spoilers for Season 1 ahead.

Alongside the premiere date, a new trailer dropped for Severance Season 2, showing that Mark (Adam Scott) and his innie workmates are by no means out of the woods yet. The end of the first season saw the reveal that Helly (Britt Lower) is actually the daughter of the Lumon Industries CEO and underwent the severance procedure for PR purposes. According to an official synopsis for the upcoming season, "Mark and his friends learn the dire consequences of trifling with the severance barrier, leading them further down a path of woe."

Severance Season 2 resumed filming at the beginning of the year after production was stopped in 2023 because of the historic Hollywood strikes. Then, in May, Scott--who was nominated for best actor at the Emmys and Golden Globes for his performance on the show--noted that the sci-fi series would return in "the somewhat near future."

The dystopian sci-fi series focuses on a group of people who decide to sever their minds while at work. So while in their innie phase on the job, they don't recall anything from their pasts or the outside world. The same goes for their outies when they're off the clock: They don't remember anything about their jobs other than going to Lumon to work.

In addition to Scott and Lower, Severance stars Tramell Tillman, Zach Cherry, Jen Tullock, Michael Chernus, Dichen Lachman, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, and Patricia Arquette. Season 2 will also bring in Sarah Bock as a series regular.

Severance originally premiered in February 2022 and went on to become GameSpot's TV show of the year. For more, read our Severance review.
