Showtime unveiled the premiere date and trailer for Season 2 of “Black Monday” on Monday (of course) at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, California.
The 10-episode second season is set to debut with back-to-back episodes on Sunday, March 15 at 10/9c. Each subsequent week will fill the same hour with two new episodes. From the trailer, it looks like the newly repaired red, stretch-Lamborghini limousine doesn’t make it through to a potential third season.
Watch the trailer via the video above.
“Black Monday” is executive produced by Don Cheadle, who stars in the comedy alongside Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall and Paul Scheer. The series is created by showrunners and executive producers David Caspe and Jordan Cahan. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are also executive producers.
Season 1 of the Showtime and Sony Pictures Television co-production followed Maurice “Mo” Monroe (Cheadle) as he and his group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of 1987 Wall Street, ultimately leading to the largest stock market crash in history — a.k.a. Black Monday. Friends became enemies, traders became traitors, and two people became dead.
This season focuses on the aftermath, Showtime said. As we begin, Dawn (Hall) and Blair (Rannells) are the bosses now, quickly learning that heavy is the head that wears the crown, especially when that head is constantly looking over its shoulder for Mo, who’s on the run with Keith (Scheer). Who will go down for the crash? Who will go down for the murders? Who will go down for fleecing Mo? All will be revealed in Season 2, the premium-cable network promises.
Season 2 guest stars include Tuc Watkins as Congressman Harris, a leading voice of the moral majority; June Diane Raphael as his ultra-conservative wife, Corkie; Dulé Hill as Marcus Wainwright III, president of the African-American Scholarship Fund; and Patrick Fabian as New York Governor Putnam.
Yassir Lester, Ken Marino, Horatio Sanz and Casey Wilson recur.
“Black Monday” Season 2 premieres with back-to-back episodes on Sunday, March 15 at 10/9c on Showtime.
