The science fiction series Severance, created by Dan Erickson and directed by Ben Stiller and Aoife McArdle, became a worldwide phenomenon when it debuted on the streaming platform Apple TV Plus in 2022. It will now return for season 2 of “The Office.”
One of the best TV shows to appear on our screens recently is Severance. It relates the tale of the biotech company Lumon Industries, which has developed the revolutionary “severance” treatment to achieve the ideal work-life balance.
The second season of the best sci-fi series introduces us to Lumon, who appears to be behind this experiment for other reasons. When will the conflict between our heroes the “Innies” and “Outies” break out? The release date, storyline, cast, and other information for Severance season 2 are shown below.
Severance Season 2 Release Date
Severance Season 2 has begun filming, though there is currently no official word on when it will be released. However, filming has already been postponed. The streaming service claimed in an introductory video that Season 2 will make you feel “like you never left.”

The second season, however, may be postponed due to a “falling out” between showrunners Dan Erickson and Mark Friedman, according to a report from April 29, 2023. The report also notes “extensive script rewrites” and exorbitant episode costs as potential factors contributing to the Season 2 production delay.
This has been disputed by those close to the show, including Ben Stiller himself. “No one’s going to the break room. We’re on the same really slow schedule we’ve always been on. Same target air date we’ve always had. Love our fans and each other and we all are just working to make the show as good as possible,” he tweeted.
Apple declared that filming had started in October 2022, but the summer came and passed. Star Adam Scott added a second “Can’t wait for everyone to see what we’re doing in S2” to Apple’s tweet before sharing it. a water drop emoji, etc.

In light of the US Writers’ Guild of America (WGA) strike, Severance has since stopped production. Filming on the second season of the workplace drama, among other shows and movies, was halted in New York due to the strike.
According to a tweet from the WGA East account in May, “WGA members on strike walk the line for a sunrise picket at York Studios in the Bronx and Westchester, shutting down production on Severence, as members of IATSE and Teamsters respect our picket line.”
Who’s Cast In Severance Season 2?
The Severance cast is confirmed and ready for the show’s comeback on Apple TV+, even if filming for Season 2 is still in limbo owing to the writer’s strike. Adam Scott, the star of Madame Web, will return to the spotlight as Mark Scout, a Lumon Industries employee, and Zach Cherry will join him as Dylan George, Mark’s terminated coworker in the Macrodata Refinement division’s “severance” program.
While Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Michael Chernus plays Devon’s husband and Ricken, Mark’s brother-in-law, Jen Tullock returns as Devon Hale, Mark’s sister. John Turturro (Irving Bailiff) and Britt Lower (Helly Riggs/Eagen) will return as Mark’s two coworkers on the severance floor, who work under Seth Milchick, played by Tramell Tillman. Dichen Lachman, who previously appeared in Jurassic World and Agents of SHIELD, will return as Ms. Casey/Gemma, the wellness advisor for the severed floor.
The remaining veterans are Patricia Arquette’s Harmony Cobel, Mark’s supervisor who also poses as his neighbour, and Christopher Walken’s Burt Goodman, the former head of the Optics and Design branch. The following list of eight fresh faces who will play unnamed parts in the upcoming season was also revealed:
- Gwendoline Christie
- Alia Shawkat
- Bob Babalan
- Merrit Wever
- Robby Benson
- Stefano Carannante
- John Noble
- Ólafur Darri Ólafsson
What is Severance Season 2 About?
At the conclusion of season 1, Helly made a disastrous entrance at the party her father, Jame Eagan, the current CEO of Lumon Industries, hosted. Similar to how we would like to believe that Irving’s knowledge of Burt will be continued in season 2, it is difficult to foretell what will transpire due to the memory-erasing issue.
The drama series’ first season concludes with Mark discovering that his presumed deceased wife is actually very much alive. Even if our major characters have a tendency to lose track of what is happening in their private lives, that is undoubtedly going to continue during Severance’s second season.
We also have a burning need to learn what happened to Dylan. The microdata refiner’s situation wasn’t looking bright when we last saw him, but we do know he’ll return in season 2.
