Mickey Down and Konrad Kay created Industry Season 2 as a British-American television drama series. And it’ll most likely happen shortly. Here are the specifics you should be aware of.
HBO’s banking drama Industry, which followed a group of fresh-faced recruits at the fictional investment bank Pierpoint & Co, was one of the finest TV surprises of 2020.
The UK-based programme lured you in with its soapy perspective on high-stakes workplace drama and a scathing critique of its frequently poisonous subject matter, which debuted on HBO in November and finished precisely before the end of the year. This high-stakes professional drama and a scathing indictment of the industry has each episode filled with more suspenseful and intense than the one before it.
“Industry” “follows a group of young graduates as they compete for a small number of permanent posts at Pierpoint & Co, a famous London investment firm.”
The first season follows graduates from different walks of life as they fight for a limited number of full-time job openings at Pierpoint. Harper Stern, a Black upstate New York native who uproots her life in search of success at Pierpoint’s London branch, despite lying about her university of graduation, is among the graduates.
Hari Dhar, a privileged, well-connected child of Lebanese parents with an underachieving, drug-addled boyfriend; Augustus “Gus” Sackey, a gay Black British graduate of Eton and Oxford; Robert Spearing, a white working-class Oxford graduate who is eager to please but taken aback by the change in social mores associated with high finance; and Yasmin Kara-Hanani, a privileged, well-connected child of Lebanes.

The TV series “Industry” has only had one season so far. The HBO Max Network has yet to reveal its plans for the TV show “Industry.” However, based on the previous episode’s timetable, Industry 2nd season is set to debut on Friday, November 26, 2021.

Yes! Industry was renewed for a second season by HBO on December 10, with co-creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay continuing as showrunners.
In a statement, executive vice president of HBO programming Francesca Orsi said, “Mickey and Konrad have captured an authentic, fresh perspective on workplace culture from the bottom up and presented a complex look at navigating life in your early twenties–replete with thrills, failures, and victories.” “It’s fantastic to see people appreciate these young grads, and we’re looking forward to seeing what season two has in store.”
That’s still up in the air, and a lot of it is likely to rely on COVID-related shooting circumstances. For example, HBO’s high-profile behind-the-scenes corporate drama Succession has had to reschedule many times in the last year. Industry, which shoots in London, might also be pushed back.
However, it appears that production is increasing. On June 29, 2021, co-creator Konrad Kay shared a snapshot of the read-through copies of Season 2’s first two episodes, with a “Management Offsite” shirt in the backdrop, on Twitter. In a perfect scenario, the following season would debut in late 2021, but it now appears that 2022 is more likely.
In Industry, a lot of artistic licence has been employed. The depiction of the grad scheme and competitive nature of banking for a young grad is very realistic, yet there are several moments that would be considered firing offences.
Despite the superficiality of Industry’s societal criticisms, crisp writing and a strong ensemble make it easy to appreciate its frothy office drama.
“Industry” may have discounted its next-generation banking tale beyond the point of fundamental appeal in order to counteract the pompous craziness that has marked so many high-finance plays in the past.
Mickey Down and Konrad Kay’s HBO drama series monitors its ensemble of young college grads with the workmanlike complacency of a decades-old office drone, unlike “The Wolf of Wall Street” or “Billions,” which put competitors in a furious war over billions.
They go to work, earn (or lose) money, and then leave. Despite standard plots and a generally appealing ensemble, “Industry” feels more like a pre-COVID daily slog than a break from it.
It all depends on how long viewers are engrossed in the show. Down revealed in an interview with GQ that he and Kay would want to keep the programme going for numerous seasons. “The concept of having a long-running version of the programme is something we’d love to pursue,” he added. “However, it is not up to us.” “You’ll have to wait and see,” says the narrator.
Currently you are able to watch “Industry – Season 1” streaming on Disney+ Hotstar. So grab your subscription and get going watch the show!
