Apple TV+ doesn’t have as big of a cultural footprint as, say, Netflix, but they have several quality shows — and “Severance” might be the best of the bunch. The first season became a big hit for the streamer, with fans (like me) becoming hooked on the show’s constant twists and turns. Season 1 ended on a major cliffhanger, too, which has made the wait for season 2 all the more painful. The first season also went on to be nominated for 14 Emmy Awards.

Here’s the synopsis: 

In “Severance,” Mark Scout (Adam Scott) leads a team at Lumon Industries, whose employees have undergone a severance procedure, which surgically divides their memories between their work and personal lives. This daring experiment in “work-life balance” is called into question as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself. In season two, Mark and his friends learn the dire consequences of trifling with the severance barrier, leading them further down a path of woe.

Season 1 stars Adam Scott, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Zach Cherry, Jen Tullock, Michael Chernus, Dichen Lachman, Emmy Award winner John Turturro, Academy Award winner Christopher Walken, and Patricia Arquette are all back for season 2, with new series regular Sarah Bock joining the ensemble. The series is written, created and executive produced by Dan Erickson, with Ben Stiller serving as executive producer and director on several episodes. 

“Severance” season 2 arrives on Apple TV+ on Friday, January 17, 2025 followed by one episode every Friday through March 21, 2025.
