The second season of Severance is in production

Principal photography has already started on the second season of "Severance" back in October. Series producer (and sometimes director) Ben Stiller said at the time that “we are thrilled and delighted to be back on set for the exciting second chapter of ‘Severance,’” said “Severance” director and executive producer Ben Stiller. “Though we don't know how long we've been gone or who we are outside, we are told people enjoy the show and we couldn't be happier. Praise Kier!”

Apple TV+ has quickly established itself as a major player in the world of television. In addition to "Severance" and "Black Bird", the streaming service has also received critical acclaim for its other original series, including "The Morning Show" and "Ted Lasso".
