They say delayed gratification is the greatest kind. In which case the lengthy two-year anticipation for Dan Erickson’s Severance season 2 will surely make for some deeply enjoyable viewing.

Apple TV+ has just previewed its hit sci-fi psychological thriller today along with the likes of Slow Horses, Silo, Shrinking, Pachinko, Presumed Innocent starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Wolfs starring George Clooney & Brad Pitt, as well as Scarlett Johansson’s Fly Me To The Moon, and plenty more.

“Your innie has already seen this image,” read the social media caption of the first-look image (a reference to the show’s high-concept twist regarding memory).

For the uninitiated, the entire premise revolves around a biotech company known as Lumon Industries, which makes use of a medical procedure called “severance” to separate the memories of their employees.

Severed workers (“innies”) cannot remember anything about their lives or the outside world while at the Lumon offices and vice versa in the outside world (“outies”).

As a result, innies and outies experience two very different lives with distinct personalities and agendas. It also opens up rather intriguing story opportunities for us: the viewers.

The second season of Severance will mark the return of Adam Scott as Mark Scout — a former history professor turned severed Lumon employee in the Macrodata Refinement division; Britt Lower as Helly Riggs — a new severed employee who replaces Yul Vazquez’s Peter “Petey” Kilmer; Zach Cherry as Dylan George — Mark’s severed co-worker; and John Turturro as Irving Bailiff — another one of Mark’s severed co-worker who’s a stickler for company policy.

The cast also includes high-profile names such as Patricia Arquette and Christopher Walken. Ben Stiller and Aoife McArdle serve as both series directors and executive producers.

At this stage, Apple TV+ has yet to confirm a specific Severance season 2 release date (for Australia or otherwise) — simply the reassurance that it’ll be dropping sometime in 2024. We’ll update you when the time comes.
