Adam Sandler will reportedly be on The Morning Show season 2. His friend Jennifer Aniston helped him get the spot on the Apple TV show.
Jennifer Aniston reportedly successfully convinced frequent collaborator Adam Sandler to be on The Morning Show season 2. Sandler will start shooting his recurring arc as soon as Apple TV+ lifts its ban on filming.
The project would serve as a reunion for both Aniston and Sandler, who worked together on multiple projects in the past. They previously starred together on the comedy films Just Go With It and Murder Mystery.
The Morning Show stars Aniston and Reese Witherspoon as Alex Levy and Bradley Jackson respectively. The drama chronicled the fallout of a sexual harassment scandal in a popular breakfast news program.
The Morning Show season 2 details
The Morning Show became a major hit for Apple TV+ when it debuted in November. This could be the reason for the streamer’s enthusiasm in bringing in A-list talents like Adam Sandler for the second season.
The drama’s fans are also curious if Steve Carell will come back to the show. Carell played Mitch Kessler, a former anchor who got fired because of multiple sexual misconduct allegations. The actor was only supposed to be on the show for a season but its success might have changed his mind.

The second season was in the middle of production when the COVID-19 pandemic hit America. Apple TV+ immediately ordered the production shutdown of all its shows to minimize health risks. Because of the shutdown, it might take a while before the drama returns to the streaming service.
Zach Braff appearing in the second season
Adam Sandler will not be the only comedy actor to appear on Apple TV+ series. Last month, Zach Braff confirmed that he is set to appear on the drama’s sophomore outing.
According to an interview, Braff was supposed to appear as a guest star on the drama. He was going to do an episode but the COVID-19 shutdown happened. He still hopes that he will be able to do the show when production resumes.
Katie Couric on The Morning Show
In related news, news anchor Katie Couric has already seen The Morning Show. She did not shy away from expressing her thoughts on the drama’s portrayal of the TV business.
Based on a report, Couric complimented Jennifer Aniston for her performance on the series. However, she thought that the Friends actress could have done a better job if her character was “more charismatic.”
Apple TV+ has not announced a timetable for the release of The Morning Show season 2. The series will likely return to the streamer in 2021. On the other hand, Adam Sandler will next appear on the Netflix comedy film Hubie Halloween.
