Apple Renews 'Carpool Karaoke: The Series' for Second Season

Apple has renewed "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" for a second season, CBS CEO Les Moonves announced this afternoon (via The Hollywood Reporter). Positioned as Apple's second original TV show after "Planet of the Apps," "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" season 1 debuted last August.

"Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is based on the Carpool Karaoke segment made popular by "The Late Late Show With James Corden." Apple's TV show pairs up different celebrities, musicians, athletes, putting them together in a car to sing popular songs.


In season 1, featured celebrity pairings included Will Smith and James Corden; Miley, Noah, Billy Ray and the entire Cyrus family; Shakira and Trevor Noah; Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams; Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith; John Legend, Alicia Keys and Taraji P. Henson; LeBron James and James Corden; and more.

"Carpool Karaoke: The Series" was developed by Apple as a way to promote its Apple Music service and to offer exclusive entertainment to Apple Music subscribers. The show aired each Tuesday on Apple Music, and past episodes can be viewed by Apple Music subscribers.

It is not yet clear when the second season of "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" might debut, but it could see an August launch much like the first season.

They're renewing it because this and the app show is all they got right now. If they don't renew this, then they will have no original shows with new episodes.


I think I would be ok with that.

Agree. Who gives a crap about this stupid series. People watching rich, shallow celebrities doing rich, shallow things in a car. Can we grow up please?

Wow, every Show Apple announced yet is just cringeworthy in my opinion. As if they wouldn't even care to compete 0_o

I already can see myself telling my (possible) kids in 20 years who find an old iPhone I the attic:" yeah, that was really cool stuff apple made in the past, until they turned into a media and content hell of a company. Oh, and that was the homepod, but it's a paperweight since everything apple needs airplay 6 now and the first hp isn't supported in any way or shape since 15 years

Sorry, maybe I'm exaggerating, but it's just that apple disappoints me soooo much since ~5 years. And I don't need any apologist to tell me how great it actually is. I think it isn't.

If somebody truly still can be thrilled with their products and agenda, than I envy that person and am happy for him/her.

Apple is having an identity crisis.


I Don’t think Apple is having an identity crisis, I just think Apple is branching outinto different segments that’s not appealing to everybody, primarily because they are tech company first. But this type of entertainment just doesn’t seem fitting for a large majority of the Apple enthusiasts.

Never saw the first season... I don’t think it’s appealing to me anyway.
