The Morning Show, which goes by the title of “Morning Wars” in Australia and Indonesia, is an American drama streaming TV show. Featuring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell in the lead, the show first hit screens two years ago, on Apple TV+ on November 1.
The American drama is based on the book “Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV” by Brian Stelter. Recently in the news for its 2nd season, here’s everything for you to know about it.
How Did The Fans And Audience Take “The Morning Show” Season 2?
Harsh criticism comes for the second season of the show, saying that it wanted to bring a lot to the plate and but ended up getting little to nothing. Facing a lot of negative views for themselves, the show producers got so many themes that it turned out to fit the saying “too many cooks spoil the broth.”
With things like sexual misconduct, racism, sexism, homophobia, canceled culture, and Covid-19, the show did not seem to stop bringing more content. Releasing a limited of 10 episodes, it appeared that season 2 was a complete mess-up with a big mix of great ideas.
The second season of the morning show seems to have brought mainly disappointment to a majority of its fans. Despite releasing an amazing and very successful season 1 and setting a benchmark of expectations for the upcoming seasons, the morning show that airs as an Apple TV+ series had every viewer taking the show to be an overall great show.
However, lately, with netizens talking about the second season, which ended sometime back, the reviews for the season seemed to have turned almost opposite of how they were for the previous season. It was seen as a chaotic and dull season for The morning show.
Cast And Characters: Who All Are There On The Morning Show Season 2?
The lead roles we have are Jennifer Aniston as Alexandra “Alex” Levy, being a co-host on The Morning Show, with Reese Witherspoon in the role of Bradley Jackson, and Steve Carell portraying Mitch Kessler, the recently fired co-host of the American drama series.
Other members from the main cast include Billy Crudup playing Cory Ellison, the CEO of UBA, Mark Duplass acting as Charlie “Chip” Black, and NéstorCarbonell as Yanko Flores, the meteorologist of TMS.
In What Ways Is ‘The Morning Show’ Season One Different From Season 2?
Where the first season focused on the dishonored TV anchor Mitch Kessler (Steve Carrell), who was fired from the fictional Morning Show due to sexual misconduct, Jennifer Aniston, who plays Kessler’s co-anchor Alex Levy, can be seen throughout the first season trying to absorb the fact her good friend and former partner is actually a sexual predator.
Coming in place of Mitch as Alex’s co-anchor was Reese Witherspoon, playing Bradley Jackson and turned out to be a totally opposite person.
So, the show has had some scenarios that have made it enjoyable, like Cory’s weirdness, Stella, Mia, Chip’s frustration but are marred by episodes where we had to witness the fuss over Alex and Mitch’s relationship and how sad it becomes for Alex. All in all, the second season brought a lot of chaos and messed for the fans and didn’t match the expectations of the audience.
