Like the world of high finance in which the show is set, “there is no rest” when it comes to HBO. Industry.
The creators of the drama series starring Myha’la Herrold, Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, revealed that they are already writing the third season, despite the fact that the series has not been officially picked up for a third season.
The series, which is a co-production between HBO and BBC, premiered its second season on August 1 and ended last week. It follows a group of young bankers, including Herrold’s Harper Stern, as they forge their identities within the environment of the pressure cooker and sex and drug fueled bombing of the London office of the international bank Pierpoint & Co.
Speaking in a Dischord chat, hosted by the web3 Dirt newsletter, the pair discussed plans for season three.
Down said: “We’ve started writing”, while his partner Kay added: “We have a good idea for season 3”.
[SPOILER ALERT] The show’s second season ends with Herrold’s Harper Stern facing the consequences of falsifying her college transcripts and being fired, while Marisa Abela’s Yasmin Kara-Hinani was cut by her father after she confronted him about MeToo issues.
Kay said that the pacing of the second season was “deliberately” stepped up. “We had a rule that we had to burn through our best plot ideas as quickly as possible. Don’t hold back anything. Every episode should feel like an ending. We hate how slow most modern TV is,” she added.
The series also stars Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson, Ken Leung, Conor MacNeill, and Jay Duplass has a major role in the second season.
Created, written and produced by Down and Kay, Jami O’Brien writes and produces with Jane Tranter, David P. Davis, Ryan Rasmussen and Ben Irving serving as executive producers. Bad Wolf produces.
