Severance Season 2 Finally Gets Premiere Date and Teaser in 2025

We finally have a premiere date for Severance season 2, although it’s not until next year.

Apple TV+ announced on Wednesday that the first episode of Severance season 2 will premiere on the streaming platform on Friday, January 17, 2025, with episodes scheduled to air every Friday through March 21, 2025. We also got a 40-second teaser for the 10-episode season (watch it here), which features some familiar faces returning to Lumon.

Below, you can read the official synopsis for Severance on Apple TV+, which includes a sneak peek at 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 been laid off, surgically splitting their memories between their work and personal lives. This bold experiment in work-life balance is called into question when Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that forces him to confront the true nature of his work… and himself. In season two, Mark and his friends discover the terrible consequences of dodging severance pay, leading them further down the path of misery.

Today’s release date reveal has been a long time coming. Severance became a massive hit for Apple TV+ when it debuted in February 2022, with Apple TV+ quickly renewing it for a second season ahead of the first season’s finale.

Although filming for Season 2 began last year, it was one of several TV shows that halted production due to the writers’ strike in May of last year, and was also reportedly affected by the subsequent actors’ strike. Much to the delight of fans, executive producer Ben Stiller confirmed that it was “back to work” in January, and wrapped in April.

Early next year, the dissolution will return.

In addition to Scott, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Zach Cherry, Jen Tullock, Michael Chernus, Dichen Lachman, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, and Patricia Arquette also return for Season 2 of Severance, along with series regular Sarah Bock.

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