Apple TV+ executive producer and showrunner Kerry Ehrin inked a multiyear extension of her deal with Apple. Under the new pact, she will continue producing exclusive content, including The Morning Show, which should enter its second season soon.

With Erin signing a multiyear deal, indications look good that Apple plans to extend The Morning Show‘s run beyond two seasons. The show’s first season, which premiered on November 1, 2019, landed three Golden Globe nominations: one for Best Television Series – Drama, and two for Best Actress in a Drama Series (for both Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

The series about a TV news show rocked by a sexual scandal was also honored with a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for Aniston. And Billy Crudup earned a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

The Morning Show offers a stinging inside look at the lives of people who work in morning TV. Ehrin executive produces alongside Aniston, Witherspoon and Michael Ellenberg.

Just a week after the series’ debut, Apple confirmed that the show would come back for another season. While an exact date isn’t set yet, Ehrin told told Variety last November that Season 2 would start shooting around the beginning of 2020. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic closing down much of Hollywood production, that date is expected to be pushed back.
