Apple TV's star-studded hit TheMorningShow is back for season two, and it's gone deep on the most dramatic events of 2020, here's _charleyross's review.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon return for another explosive season.

Jennifer Aniston's Alex Levy confronts her past in The Morning Show's second season.This is an interesting and important type of shame to tackle in the aftermath of a sex abuse scandal. Carrell’s character’s actions are undeniably awful and arguably irredeemable, but what remains after the stormy demands for his retribution is even more complicated. He’s still a father, a friend, a person. Except he’s not. What happens to the people that must leave him behind if they are to continue with their lives as before? Can they even live their life as before? Alex deals with this throughout season two and it’s extremely compelling – and thought provoking – to witness her struggle.

“Alex sort of became a feminist hero and I think she has this secret guilt that she isn’t, she has this history with Mitch that she’s ashamed of,”The Morning ShowPeople.“But something about her still needs to feel relevant and there’s obviously still more for her to excavate,” Aniston added in the same interview.

Season two explores an interesting and important type of shame that is tackled in the aftermath of a sex abuse scandal.The family of the show’s former booker, the late Hannah Shoenfeld (played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw) are pressing charges against the show’s network for a wrongful death lawsuit, after she died from an overdose at the end of the first season. Cory spends a large amount of his screen time crusading on her behalf, not just trying to protect the reputation of the show but Hannah’s, too.

Media outlets threaten to apply their own poisonous form of shame to her tragic death by painting her as a drug addict and more, so he finds himself in his own battle to prevent public shaming of the late Hannah. But, as always, things get complicated.

New additions to the cast include the iconic Holland Taylor (who plays self-proclaimed “cockroach” Cybil, the chairwoman ofThe Morning Show’s broadcaster, UBA) and Julianna Marguilies, who plays Laura Peterson, a veteran TV presenter who used to work on the show.

Bradley is going from strength to strength on the air, but is facing her own experiences of shame herself. Laura becomes a mentor to her, helping her continue to build her thriving career. “The energy between Reese’s character and my character is really interesting to watch because you really see Reese’s character grow just by being in Laura’s orbit,” Margulies tells

We see Bradley come to terms with her shame, and in doing so considers what this might mean for her future.As many of our principal characters are grappling with their own experiences of shame, there are other issues at play. Newcomer Stella Bak (played by Greta Lee), who has stepped in to run the show and take it to higher levels of inclusivity and lower levels of scandal, encounters racial slurs in the street. Daniel (played by Daniel Henderson) grows increasingly disillusioned when he feels underused as a black, gay reporter. Weatherman Yanko (played by Nestor Carbonell), meanwhile, tussles with cultural appropriation.
