Industry, a sex and drugs-fueled banking drama created by former financial personnel and first-time screenwriters Mickey Down and Konrad Kay are set to return for a second season.
Harper, an American graduate who moves to London to pursue a career in international banking, is played by Myha’la Herrold (The Tattooed Heart).
Season two, according to co-creator Down, would look into the fallout from the previous season, which saw Harper sell out numerous coworkers…
“She makes a pretty profound decision to advance her career, maybe at the cost of the relationships that she’s made over the course of the season. What we want to explore in season two is her negotiating what that decision means for her, her life in London, and her relationship with the people who are closest to her, like Yasmin and Eric,” he said.
Industry Season 2 Release Date:
The release date for Season 2 of Industry has not yet been announced, although it is expected to debut on HBO Max in 2022.
Producer Konrad Kay tweeted on December 7 that filming for the second season of the series has come to a conclusion.

This week’s new episodes’ stars were seen in a celebration video.
If Konrad Kay’s cryptic tweets are to be taken at face value, perhaps an early 2022 slot is in the works!
Following the release of the first season, HBO confirmed that the second season would premiere in December 2022, according to TV Line.
What will happen in Industry season two?
If we had to pick a favourite episode from season one, it would be episode one, which had us reeling in the final few minutes.
This is not to argue that Pierpoint, an international financial corporation with misogyny, privilege and backstabbing “as seen through the eyes of ambitious twenty-somethings seeking to secure their future,” was not a good Show.
The recent college grads worked long hours and they partied even harder, resulting in a variety of all-nighters, one-night encounters, and unlikely combinations. There was also a reduction in force,’ where all the graduates fought for a small number of permanent employment, to prove their worth.
Who will star in Industry season two?
Hari (played by Informer’s Nabhaan Rizwan), Robert (Harry Lawtey), Yasmin (Cobra’s Marisa Abela), Tom (Game of Thrones’ Will Tudor), and Kenny (played by Deep State’s David Jonsson) were all part of the original season’s Industry cast (Conor MacNeill).
You’ll learn why Rizwan won’t be repeating his role as Hari in Industry Episode One.
The majority of the cast, however, is expected to return for the second season.
Characters that had their futures uncertain may yet return, according to the show’s producer Down. As he said to Entertainment Weekly, “There’s always the possibility that these characters may return in some fashion, within Pierpoint or outside it.”
According to Herrold, “What I think is so gratifying about [her character] is that we’re initiating this dialogue about the Black existence being more than one thing or two things.”
“We, the people of colour, have many faces. A wide range of tales must be shared. Better is due to us as a people, and we have earned it.
