The Cupertino business teased viewers about the a great deal-anticipated season two of the well known Apple Television+ show amid the deluge of hardware news by supplying a couple of short scenes that featured the show’s lead actor riding the subway — some thing we’ve in no way noticed her do.
The scenes could possibly indicate we’ll get to stick to Helly’s character additional outdoors the workplace in the upcoming episodes.
If you haven’t caught on but to “Severance,” the Emmy-nominated Outstanding Drama Series options a dark take on operate/life balance. Instead of staff engaged in “quiet quitting,” the workers in this sci-fi series opt for a higher-tech healthcare process — “severance” — that surgically divides your memories of operate life from these of your genuine life — and vice versa.
But what ever is seriously going on at Lumon, the cultlike business they operate for in the macrodata refinement division, remains a mystery for the time becoming.
At the finish of season 1, the staff had teamed up on a program to attempt to figure factors out, major to some major reveals about who these people today had been outdoors their operate personas. The newer employee Helly Riggs, played by actor Britt Lower, will surely be a concentrate in the forthcoming episodes provided what we discovered about her in the season 1 finale. (No spoilers right here, just go watch!)
Thanks to her distinctive red hair, Helly’s character was simple to determine in a couple of scenes throughout the iPhone occasion presentation now.
She initially seems in a video following the introduction of the new AirPods Pro.
You can catch a glimpse of Helly shortly immediately after Apple presenter and senior engineer Mary-Ann Rau touts the new device’s far better noise-cancellation capabilities when standing in a noisy subway vehicle — double that of the original AirPods Pro, she says. As the clip ends, Rau methods out of the train vehicle and onto the platform. And that is when we spot Helly waiting to step on.
Later, Apple pulls a Marvel-like finish credits tease. After Tim Cook bids us farewell, the camera pans up to the stars above Apple Park — in an Apple logo, of course. The scene fades and Helly seems once again.
This time, she’s once again about to board the subway, nonetheless dressed in her operate attire and carrying a huge brown tote. The image flickers a small right here — could this imply an individual is pulling the levers back at corporate to swap her brain from operate mode to one more? (As we discovered later in the season, the healthcare process Helly underwent to turn into a so-known as severed worker can do a couple of other factors as well!)
