The “Music Dance Experience” is on its way back. Apple just released the first teaser trailer for the much-anticipated second season of Severance, along with the news that the show won’t be returning until 2025. The first episode will start streaming on Apple TV Plus on January 17th and last 10 episodes.

The short teaser doesn’t reveal much about what to expect in the new season, but according to Apple, “Mark (Adam Scott) and his friends learn the dire consequences of trifling with the severance barrier, leading them further down a path of woe.”

A day before the trailer dropped, Apple released an appropriately cryptic teaser:

Severance debuted on Apple TV Plus in 2022, and its very particular blend of drab office drama and bizarre sci-fi thriller — which included lots of cool computers and creepy hallways — quickly garnered a dedicated audience. It follows a group of employees at a tech company that “surgically divides their memories between their work and personal lives.” In addition to Scott, the show also stars Britt Lower, John Turturro, Zach Cherry, Christopher Walken, Patricia Arquette, and Tramell Tillman.

While a second season was announced just ahead of the season 1 finale in April, which ended on an incredible cliffhanger, the show went relatively quiet until Apple teased its return — alongside the postapocalyptic thriller Siloat WWDC 2024. Over the years since Severance first debuted, Apple TV Plus has steadily grown into an excellent service for sci-fi, with upcoming shows like Sunny and Time Bandits as well as the recently wrapped Dark Matter.
