Watch: Jennifer Aniston Says "The Morning Show" Role Felt "Oddly Natural"

Somehow the cast of The Morning Show is getting even bigger and better in season two.

Julianna Margulies has now been tapped to join the Apple TV+ drama, joining Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell in one of TV's most stacked casts. Margulies will play Laura Peterson, an anchor at UBA News. 

She also joins fellow new season two cast members Greta Lee, Ruairi O'Connor and guest star Hasan Minhaj

Season one of the highly anticipated series ended with Alex (Aniston) and Bradley (Witherspoon) blowing up their morning show on live TV, exposing their boss for the toxic environment he created and urging other victimized women to come forward after the tragic death of Hannah (Gugu Mbatha-Raw). There's likely going to be some major fallout from that ending, and we wouldn't be surprised if other anchors at UBA get caught in the crossfires as the future of the Morning Show and the entire network hangs in the balance. 

2021 TV Premiere Dates

Margulies is best known for starring on ER and The Good Wife, and more recently starred on Dietland and The Hot Zone. She posted a photo early on Wednesday of her wearing a mask in a fancy kitchen. 

"Back at work again!" she wrote. "Can you tell what set I'm on?" 

Sarah Paulson actually guessed correctly before the news was out. 

"The Morning Show," she wrote, before later adding, "I'm right. I AM RIGHT." 

Other returning cast members include Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Bel Powley, Karen Pittman, Desean Terry and the Emmy-winning Billy Crudup

Season two of The Morning Show is currently in production.
