Industry has been renewed for a second season at HBO, Shadow and Act has learned. This comes as the first season continues to play out on HBO while the season is available to stream in its entirety on HBO Max.
From first-time creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, the show follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited number of permanent positions at a leading international bank in London.
“Mickey and Konrad have captured an authentic, fresh angle on workplace culture from the bottom up and presented a complex look at navigating life in your early twenties – replete with thrills, failures and victories,” says Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming. “It’s exciting to see fans embrace these young graduates, and we join them in anticipation of what’s in store for season two. We also send a big thanks to our partners at Bad Wolf and BBC.”
The series stars Myha’la Herrold, Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson and Nabhaan Rizwan as “The Graduates” and Conor MacNeill, Freya Mavor , Will Tudor and Ken Leung as “Management.”
The description: Industry gives an insider’s view of the blackbox of “high finance” through the eyes of an outsider, Harper Stern (Herrold), a talented young woman from upstate New York. Following a group of young grads fueled by ambition, youth, romance and drugs, the series examines issues of gender, race, class, and privilege in the workplace as these impressionable young minds begin to forge their identities within the pressure cooker environment and sensory blitz of Pierpoint & Co’s trading floor, where meritocracy is promised but hierarchy is king.
Industry‘s final two episodes will air back to back Dec. 21 on HBO.
