- Industry has officially been renewed for season 2 but a release date is yet to be confirmed.
HBO announced that the series was renewed in December 2020, with Francesca Orsi – EVP HBO Programming – issuing the following statement:
“Mickey and Konrad have captured an authentic, fresh angle 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 exciting to see fans embrace these young graduates, and we join them in anticipation of what’s in store for season two.”
She added: “We also send a big thanks to our partners at Bad Wolf and BBC.”
Although no release date information has been shared, it’s likely that Industry season 2 won’t arrive until 2022.
Season 1 concluded on Monday, December 21st and all episodes are currently available to stream on HBO Max and BBC iPlayer.
Mickey Down looks ahead
In an earlier interview with GQ, co-creator Mickey Down revealed how he thought about the future of the characters while writing the first season:
“You do think while you’re writing their first year, what they would look like and what their relationships would look like in four, five years’ time. The idea of doing a version of the show which goes on for a long time is one that we’d love to do. But it’s not up to us. You’ll have to wait and see.”
We’re sure Mickey is as thrilled with the latest news as fans…
