Apple TV+ has added eight to the cast of its workplace thriller, “Severance” as principal photography gets underway on Season 2, reports Deadline.
“Game of Thrones” alumna Gwendoline Christie, Bob Balaban (“The Chair”), Merritt Wever (“Godless”), Alia Shawkat (“Search Party”), Robby Benson (“Beauty and the Beast”), Stefano Carannante (“Mirabilia”), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (“The Tourist”) and John Noble (“Fringe”) join the Emmy-winning series starring Adam Scott, from creator and writer Dan Erickson and director and executive producer Ben Stiller.
In addition to Scott, returning for Season 2 are Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman, Michael Chernus and Christopher Walken.
Here’s how the series is described: In “Severance,” Mark Scout (Scott) leads a team at Lumon Industries, whose employees have undergone a severance procedure, which surgically divides their memories between their work and personal lives. This daring experiment in “work-life balance” is called into question as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work… and of himself. This Friday’s episode, titled “The We We Are,” will see the team discover troubling revelations.
