A first look teaser for the breakthrough series Industry, from creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, has been released ahead of the return of its second season premiering in August.
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 international bank Pierpoint & Co’s London office. In Season 2, 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. 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 (Myha’la Herrold), Yasmin (Marisa Abela) and Robert (Harry 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.
After almost all secured positions at Pierpoint & Co., season two of Industry picks up a year after the height of the pandemic and stars returning “Graduates” Herrold as Harper Stern, Abela as Yasmin Kara-Hanani, Lawtey as Robert Spearing, and David Jonsson as Gus Sackey; and “Management” Ken Leung as Eric Tao, and Conor MacNeill as Kenny Kilblane.
Stirring up the status quo at Pierpoint & Co. are new cast regulars this season Alex Alomar Akpobome as Danny Van Deventer, a wonderkid Executive Director from the New York office, Indy Lewis as Venetia Berens, Yasmin’s newest recruit on the Foreign Exchange Sales Desk, and Katrine de Candole as Celeste Pacquet. Jay Duplass stars as reputable hedge fund manager Jesse Bloom, Sonny Poon Tip as his son Leo Bloom, and Adam Levy as Yasmin’s playboy father Charles Hanani. Returning recurring cast include Sarah Parish as Nicole Craig, Nicholas Bishop as Maxim Alonso, Sagar Radia as Rishi Ramdani, Mark Dexter as Hilary Wyndham, and Caoilfhionni Dunne as Jackie Walsh.
