BBC One’s Industry: the season two trailer for the high-octane drama is finally here

Posted by for TV

After a year-long wait, BBC’s Industry is finally returning for season two and we finally have a new trailer. Here’s everything we know about the new instalment so far.

This article contains spoilers for the ending of Industry season one, so make sure you’re all caught up before scrolling down.

Back in 2020, the BBC treated us to a series called Industrya high-octane drama about a group of graduates navigating the world of investment banking, with all the scandalous after-hours activities you’d expect.

Unsurprisingly, it proved pretty popular (including among Team Stylist). So it’s safe to say we were very excited to learn that a second series of the show was heading our way when it was commissioned last year.

Now, we know a bit more about what we can expect from the new series, thanks to a collection of intense first-look images, some rather gripping plot teasers and now, a brand new trailer.

We also know when the show will be heading to our screens – and it’s a lot sooner than you might think. Keep reading to check out everything we know about Industry season two so far. 

What is Industry season two about?

Industry season two will see Harper and her colleagues navigate life after the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a press release accompanying the new first-look images, the BBC teased more details about what audiences can expect when Industry returns to screens.

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-fuelled blitz of international bank Pierpoint & Co’s London office,” the description reads.

“In season two our grads are 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.”

The description continues: “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.” 

The ending of Industry season one can give us some clues as to what to expect from the new series. In the final episode of series one we saw the grads vying for the opportunity to be hired by Pierpoint & Co – a moment which led to plenty of drama.

Not only did Robert, Gus and Harper all end up messing up their RIF (reduction in force) presentations, but we saw Harper make the surprise decision to bring back her toxic boss Eric to ensure her spot at the company. As a result, Harper’s superior Daria is fired to make space for Eric – a moment which drives a wedge between Harper and her friend Yasmin.  

Who stars in Industry season two?

Katrine De Candole
Katrine De Candole is one of the faces joining the cast.

Series regulars Myha’la Herrold (Harper), Marisa Abela (Yasmin), Harry Lawtey (Robert), David Jonsson (Gus), Conor MacNeill (Kenny) and Ken Leung (Eric) will all be returning, alongside a slate of brand new faces.

Among them is Alex Alomar Akpobome (Twenties), who will play Danny Van Deventer, a “wonderkid Executive Director” who transfers to London from Pierpoint’s New York office.

Described as “handsome, loquacious and charming,” Danny quickly becomes a head-turning presence on the trading floor and a potential role model for the bank’s younger recruits.

Other names joining the cast include Jay Duplass (The Chair), who will play Jesse Boom, a reputable hedge fund manager who has just emigrated to the UK, Sonny Poon Tip (Anatomy of a Scandal), who will take on the role of Leo Bloom, the wayward son of a reputable hedge fund manager.

Katrine De Candole (The Ipcress File), will also play Celeste Pacquet, a multilingual wealth manager who works in Pierpoint’s Private Wealth Management division, while Adam Levy (The Witcher) will appear as Yasmin’s father Charles Hanani, a “jet-setting playboy” looking to reconnect with his daughter.

Last, but by no means least, Indy Lewis (La Fortuna) will take on the role of Venetia Berens, who joins Yasmin’s Foreign Exchange Sales Desk as its newest recruit. Described as “bright-eyed, razor-sharp and not afraid to talk back to those in power,” Venetia will provide a strong generational counterpoint to the desk’s old school ways. 

Do we have any images from Industry season two?

On 16 June, the BBC released a series of first-look images from the second series of Industry – some of which you’ll have seen scattered throughout this article. 

The others, some of which you can see below, introduce us to the new characters we can expect to see in season two – and it’s safe to say we’re pretty excited to see the new cast in action.
