Apple TV+ Series 'The Morning Show' Getting Season 2 Rewrites to Reflect Pandemic

The second season of Apple TV+ series "The Morning Show" will have elements that reflect the current real-world situation, "The Morning Show" actor Mark Duplass told Deadline.

Duplass, who plays producer Chip Black, said the show is currently in rewrites to reflect the "current global situation."

"We shot two episodes before we shut down due to the pandemic, but I know that they're also rewriting, which is crazy because that's what happened in the first season. They had a whole set of scripts [then] and they rewrote everything to include the #MeToo movement, and now we've got other, larger, global phenomenon to deal with. I don't know what they're doing but I know they're rewriting."

"The Morning Show" received eight Emmy nominations this week, including best actor in a drama series for Steve Carell and best actress in a drama series for Jennifer Aniston. Duplass also received a nomination for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.

Duplass said that even though some of his co-stars such as Reese Witherspoon and Gugu Mbatha-Raw did not receive Emmy nominations, they "all put in great performances."

There's no word on when the second season of "The Morning Show" will air, and Duplass said he has no insight into when the series might be back in production after coronavirus delays. Filming on ‌Apple TV+‌ shows and other shows has been paused due to widespread outbreaks in Los Angeles and other cities across the United States.

NOOOO, I watch TV and movies to get away from the real world albeit even for a moment. I don’t need to start seeing shows to relive what we are currently still living in.

I really enjoyed season 1, and am really looking forward to the next season!

8 Emmy nominations are deserved (except Steve Carell lead actor, lol).

I worry this won’t age well.

Will future bingers really want to revisit this time? I think we’ll all be glad to never see a face mask again, no matter if we love or hate them now.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are both executive producers, both lead actresses, both nominated for Golden Globes, and reportedly paid the same amount per episode. So it's ironic that they play a pair of women who are mostly at odds with each other.

I'm looking forward to Season 2.
