Industry season 2: UK release date, cast and latest news
The BBC drama that puts the "high" into finance is returning for a second series.
Industry season 2 is just around the corner, with the new season picking up a year after the height of the pandemic and still following the cutthroat world of international finance.
The British/American co-production is moving from BBC Two to BBC One in the UK for this season, and is once again written by former finance employees and first-time screenwriters Mickey Down and Konrad Kay.
Myha’la Herrold (The Tattooed Heart) returns to star as Harper Stern, an American graduate working in London, with season 2 reportedly set to explore the fall-out from Harper's decision to sell out her colleague and advance her own career.
Down told Entertainment Weekly: "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 2 is her negotiating what that decision means for her, her life in London, and her relationship with the people are closest to her, like Yasmin and Eric."
We now know when the new season will air in the US, but when will it hit UK screens?

The second season began airing weekly in the US on HBO Max from Monday 1st August 2022.
What will happen in Industry season 2?
The official synopsis for season 2 says that, in these new episodes, the grads "are no longer allowed to hide behind their graduate status".
The synopsis continues: "The market is ripping, and Pierpoint's back to work or else mandate has the trading floor more charged up and paranoid than ever. New U.S. management will be gasoline on the flames - an injection of cross Atlantic energy that lights a fire under each and every employee.
"Now Harper, Yasmin and Robert must drive new business and make new alliances both in and out of the office as Pierpoint and its junior bankers seek to take every advantage in a post-COVID world."
