Apple TV's 'Severance' Unveils First Look at Adam Scott in Season 2
Apple TV+

Prepare to clock in for another unsettling and unforgettable shift at Lumon Industries as the streamer has released a pair of tantalizing sneak peeks at the highly anticipated second season of the eerie workplace drama.

AceShowbiz - The official social media accounts of Apple TV+ and "Severance" star Adam Scott shared an intriguing first-look image of Scott's character, Mark Scout. In the image, Scout is seen wearing a navy-blue suit and carrying a bouquet of blue balloons as he walks down a deserted hallway. The accompanying caption reads, "Your innie has already seen this image," teasing the duality that lies at the heart of the series.

"Severance" centers on Mark Scout, a mild-mannered everyman who finds solace in his job at the ominous Lumon Industries following the tragic death of his wife. Mark, along with his fellow employees, have undergone a "severance" procedure that surgically splits their work and personal lives. This means they have no memory of their work life when at home and vice versa, a concept that explores the boundaries of identity and control.

The sci-fi thriller, which premiered in February 2022, stars Adam Scott, Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman and Jen Tullock. The uproarious anticipation for the second season was only heightened by a brief teaser released by Apple TV+ showcasing snippets from the upcoming season. In one clip, Mark Scout is seen emerging from an elevator and is greeted by a smiling Mr. Milchik (Tramell Tillman) who says, "Welcome back. (It's) been a minute." The tension builds with scenes of Scout lying on a long conference table and running frantically down another hallway, rounding out the suspenseful allure that defines "Severance."

In the debut season, Mark begins to question the unsettling operations of Lumon Industries following the mysterious disappearance of his colleague, Petey (Yul Vazquez). This quest for truth promises to deepen in the new season, as suggested by the teaser's closing shot of Scout reaching out from an elevator and screaming "Wait!" as the doors close.

The series, created by Dan Erickson and directed by Ben Stiller, has not been without its own behind-the-scenes drama. Reports of script issues, production delays and tensions between the showrunners have surfaced, though Ben Stiller assured fans in an August 2023 social media post that the production is on track. "No one's going to the break room," Stiller stated. "We're on the same really slow schedule we've always been on. Same target air date we've always had."

Alongside "Severance", the new preview from Apple TV+ also highlighted returning series like "Pachinko", "Silo", "Slow Horses" and "Shrinking" as well as new shows such as "Presumed Innocent" starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and "Lady in the Lake" starring Natalie Portman. The platform also teased upcoming films featuring Hollywood heavyweights like Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Matt Damon, Casey Affleck, George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

As fans eagerly await their next shift at Lumon Industries, rest assured that "Severance" promises to deliver more chills, thrills and thought-provoking moments that question the essence of work-life balance.
