Production on "The Morning Show" resumed filming on October 19, but there's still no word on when the second season will premiere. Season two filming started in March but went on hiatus for several months due to the pandemic, with the pandemic storyline set to be written into the show.

"The Morning Show" is one of Apple's most popular TV shows to date. It was nominated for several Golden Globe awards, and Billy Crudup won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

I loved Patriot Act and was disappointed Netflix didn’t renew it.

Now I might watch The Morning Show just for Hasan Minhaj...
