The hit Apple TV original show “Severance” wrapped its very first season back in April, leaving fans wanting more. When will “Severance” Season 2 come out?

Driving the news: According to TV Guide, Apple TV+ renewed the sci-fi drama for a second season before the first had even finished airing earlier this year.

  • In a recent interview with Variety, director Ben Stiller revealed the team is “... writing and prepping right now to shoot in October.” Since the first season took nearly 10 months to film, it’s safe to say we won’t be seeing another season until the end of 2023 at the earliest.
