HBO announced today the US premiere date for Season 2 of Industry, the award-winning British drama from creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay.
HBO drama Industry gives an insider’s view of the blackbox of high finance — following a group of young bankers as they forge their identities within the pressure cooker environment and sex-and-drug-fueled blitz of the London office of international bank Pierpoint & Co.
The new season picks up a year after the height of the pandemic, and stars returning “grads” Myha’la Herrold (Bodies, Bodies, Bodies) as Harper Stern, Marisa Abela (Cobra) as Yasmin Kara-Hanani, Harry Lawtey (The Letter for the King) as Robert Spearing, and David Jonsson (Deep State) as Gus Sackey, and “management” Ken Leung (High Maintenance) as Eric Tao and Conor MacNeill (The Fall) as Kenny Kilblane.
Following the events in Season 1, after almost all of the grads secured positions at Pierpoint & Co., Season 2 finds them no longer allowed to hide behind their graduate status. 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 US management will be gasoline on the flames — an injection of cross-Atlantic energy that lights a fire under each and every employee. Now Harper (Herrold), Yasmin (Abela), and Robert (Lawtey) 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.
Stirring up the status quo at Pierpoint & Co. are new cast regulars this season, including Alex Alomar Akpobome (Twenties) as Danny Van Deventer, a wonderkid Executive Director from the New York office; Indy Lewis (La Fortuna) as Venetia Berens, Yasmin’s newest recruit on the Foreign Exchange Sales Desk; and Katrine de Candole (Dominion) as Celeste Pacquet. Jay Duplass (The Chair) stars as reputable hedge fund manager Jesse Bloom; Sonny Poon Tip (Anatomy of a Scandal) as his son, Leo Bloom; and Adam Levy (The Witcher) as Yasmin’s playboy father, Charles Hanani. Returning recurring cast members include Sarah Parish (Stay Close) as Nicole Craig, Nicholas Bishop (RSC Live: Twelfth Night) as Maxim Alonso, Sagar Radia (The Good Karma Hospital) as Rishi Ramdani, Mark Dexter (The Crown) as Hilary Wyndham, and Caoilfhionni Dunne (Britannia) as Jackie Walsh.

Davis, Ryan Rasmussen, and by Ben Irving for BBC; and produced by Edo Ferretti. Additional writers include Matthew Barry, Zara Meerza, Joseph Charlton, and Charly Evon Simpson.
