Severance Season 2 Finally Has a 2025 Premiere Date and Teaser

We finally have a premiere date for the second season of Severance — though not until next year.

Apple TV+ announced Wednesday that the first episode of Severance’s second season will premiere on the streaming platform on Friday, January 17, 2025, followed by one episode every Friday until March 21, 2025. We also got a short, 40-second trailer for the 10-episode season (watch it here), which will feature a few familiar faces in Lumon.

You can read the official synopsis for Severance on Apple TV+ below, which includes a preview of where we can find Adam Scott’s Mark and company after the events of Season 1:

In “Severance,” Mark Scout (Adam Scott) leads a team at Lumon Industries whose employees have undergone a debriefing procedure that surgically divides their memories between their professional and personal lives. This bold experiment in “work-life balance” is challenged when Mark finds himself at the center of an unfolding mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his job…and himself. In Season 2, Mark and his friends learn the tragic consequences of neglecting the barrier of separation, leading them down a path of even greater misfortune.

Today’s premiere date was highly anticipated. Severance was a huge hit for Apple TV+ when it debuted in February 2022, and Apple TV+ quickly renewed it for a second season ahead of the first-season finale.

While Season 2 began filming last year, it was one of many TV shows to see production halted by the writers’ strike last May, and was also affected by the subsequent actors’ strike. To the delight of fans, executive producer Ben Stiller confirmed that he was “back to work” in January of this year, with filming wrapping in April.

Severance will return early next year.

In addition to Scott, Severance Season 2 will also feature returning cast members Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Zach Cherry, Jen Tullock, Michael Chernus, Dichen Lachman, John Turturro, Christopher Walken and Patricia Arquette, as well as new series regular Sarah Bock.

While you wait for the series premiere, read our review, which we gave 9/10: “Director Ben Stiller and star Adam Scott deliver a disturbing examination of office culture malfeasance in Severance on Apple TV+,” we wrote at the time.
