“Severance” Season 2 Plot
Season one ended on a dramatic cliffhanger so it’s likely that season two will pick off where that left off. “There’s going to be some expansion of the world,”. Creator Erickson teased in April, per Esquire, saying the show will continue to explore its central corporation. Lumon, which requires employees to sign away their memories of their work lives after clocking out. “Within Lumon, we’re going to see more of the building, and we’ll see more of the outside world, too,” he said.
“There’s an overall plan for the show. I have an endpoint in mind. Also, I intentionally didn’t plan it season by season, because I wanted it to be flexible enough that we could get there in two or six seasons. I want to allow us to be surprised by where the show goes. There’s a sense of what Lumon is trying to do and the role that our main characters are going to play in that, and where it all will culminate.”
