New to Apple TV+ in September

Season two of The Morning Show will stream on Apple TV+ from September 17.

The Emmy-winning series about the personalities and politics of a breakfast TV show picks up after the explosive events of season one. Reads the blurb:

Season two finds the Morning Show team emerging from the wreckage of Alex (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley’s (Reese Witherspoon) actions, to a new UBA and a world in flux, where identity is everything and the chasm between who we present as and who we really are comes into play.

New to the heavyweight cast, which includes Steve Carell, Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass, are:

  • Julianna Margulies as Laura Peterson, a UBA news anchor;
  • Greta Lee as Stella Bak, a tech world wunderkind who has joined the UBA executive team;
  • Ruairi O’Connor as Ty Fitzgerald, a smart and charismatic YouTube star;
  • Hasan Minhaj as Eric Nomani, a new member of the Morning Show team;
  • Holland Taylor as Cybil Richards, the savvy chairwoman of the UBA board;
  • Tara Karsian as Gayle Berman, a news producer;
  • Valeria Golino as Paola Lambruschini, a documentary filmmaker.

Come From Away (from September 10) is the filmed version of the award-winning Broadway musical about 7,000 people stranded in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland after all flights into the US are grounded on September 11, 2001. Reads the burb:

As the people of Newfoundland graciously welcome the “come from aways” into their community in the aftermath, the passengers and locals alike process what’s happened while finding love, laughter, and new hope in the unlikely and lasting bonds that they forge.

It was filmed at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in New York City, where the Broadway production is staged, for an audience that included 9/11 survivors and frontline workers.

Tony Award-winner Christopher Ashley, who directed the original production, again is at the helm while the Broadway cast reprise their roles.

The first on-screen adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s award-winning novel Foundation will debut with three episodes on September 24 and stream weekly thereafter. Reads the blurb:

When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilisation. Enraged by Hari’s claims, the ruling Cleons – a long line of emperor clones – fear their grasp on the galaxy may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their legacy forever.

Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Lou Llobell, Leah Harvey, Laura Birn, Terrence Mann, Cassian Bilton and Alfred Enoch star.

  1. Looking forward to Foundation more than Dune. Asimov trumps 😉
