HBO has set a premiere date for the second season of the Industry TV series. Starring Myha’la Herrold, Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson, Nabhaan Rizwan, Freya Mavor, Will Tudor, Conor MacNeill and Ken Leung, the series takes viewers into the competitive world of high finance.

HBO revealed more about the series’ return in a press release.

The eight-episode second season of the HBO drama series INDUSTRY, from creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, debuts MONDAY, AUGUST 1 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.

INDUSTRY gives an insider’s perspective on the black box of high finance by following a group of young bankers as they forge their identities in the pressure cooker environment and the blitz fueled by sex and drugs from the London office of international bank Pierpoint & Co. In Season 2, our graduates are no longer allowed to hide behind their graduate status. The market is tearing up, and Pierpoint’s return to work or other tenure makes the trading floor busier and more paranoid than ever. The new American management will be gasoline on the flames – an injection of transatlantic energy that will light a fire under every employee. Now Harper (Herrold), Yasmin (Abela) and Robert (Lawtey) must drive new business and forge new alliances both in and out of the office as Pierpoint and his junior bankers seek to leverage every advantage in a post-COVID world.

After nearly all the positions secured at Pierpoint & Co., season two of INDUSTRY picks up a year after the peak of the pandemic and features the return of “graduates” Myha’la Herrold (“Bodies, Bodies, Bodies”) as Harper Stern, Marisa Abela (“Cobra”) as Yasmin Kara-Hanani, Harry Lawtey (“The Pale Blue Eye”) as Robert Spearing, and David Jonsson (“Deep State”) as Gus Sackey; and “Management” Ken Leung (“HBO’s Old” and High Maintenance”) as Eric Tao, and Conor MacNeill (“Artemis Fowl”) as Kenny Kilblane.

Shaking off the status quo at Pierpoint & Co. are new cast regulars this season Alex Alomar Akpobome (“Twenties”) as Danny Van Deventer, a prodigy executive director of the New York office, Indy Lewis (“La Fortuna”) as Venetia Berens, Yasmin’s newest recruit to the currency sales desk, and Katrine de Candole (“Dominion”) as Céleste Pacquet. Jay Duplass (“The Chair”) stars as noted hedge fund manager Jesse Bloom, Sonny Poon Tip (“Anatomy of a Scandal”) as his son Leo Bloom and Adam Levy (“The Witcher”) in the role of Yasmin’s playboy father, Charles Hanani. Recurring returning cast members include Sarah Parish as Nicole Craig, Nicholas Bishop as Maxim Alonso, Sagar Radia as Rishi Ramdani, Mark Dexter as Hilary Wyndham, and Caoilfhionni Dunne as Jackie Walsh.

What do you think? Are you excited to see the second season of Industry on HBO later this summer?
