Apple also released a short preview of season 2. The teaser trailer depicts the severed employees returning to the elevator at Lumon. The biggest reveal is the arrival of Gwendoline Christie’s eerie character, who tells the group they should have left the company.

Severance follows a group of Lumon Industries employees who have undergone a procedure where their memories are divided between their work and personal lives. Per Apple’s season 2 logline, “Mark and his friends learn the dire consequences of trifling with the severity barrier, leading them further down a path of woe.”
