‘Severance’ Season 2 Finally Gets First Footage as Adam Scott Returns to Lumon — With Balloons

Apple TV+

There must be cause for celebration at Lumon Industries, as Mark Scout carries balloons through the office’s frightening, fluorescent hallways. Is that his face on them?

“Your innie has already seen this image,” taunted Apple TV+ in a social media post revealing a first look at “Severance” Season 2 featuring Adam Scott. The sci-fi series went into production on Season 2 in October 2022 but was then delayed due to creative disputes and then the dual Hollywood strikes. Filming finally wrapped in April 2024.

“Severance” stars Scott, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry and John Turturro as employees of a shady biotech company who “severs” its employees with a medical procedure, rendering their work and home lives completely separate. The cast also includes Patricia Arquette, Tramell Tillman, Christopher Walken, Jen Tullock, Michael Chernus and Dichen Lachman. The series was created by Dan Erickson and is directed by executive producer Ben Stiller and Aoife McArdle.

More footage from the long-anticipated second season of “Severance” was released as part of a “Coming to Apple TV+” teaser video, which also featured series “Silo,” “Slow Horses,” “Pachinko” and “Shrinking,” as well as Apple films “Fly Me to the Moon,” with Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum (July 12); “The Instigators” starring Matt Damon and Casey Affleck (Aug. 6); and “Wolfs,” reuniting George Clooney and Brad Pitt (Sept. 20).

The slate teaser also included footage from soon-to-be released originals “Presumed Innocent,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal (June 12), and “Lady in the Lake,” a limited series with Natalie Portman (July 19).
