Industry Season 2 picked up a year after the peak of the pandemic. Most of the main young graduates found jobs at Pierpoint & Co., a made-up international bank in London. This time, though, they can’t hide behind being newbies because they have to go back to working in person and the market is going down.
This has made the trading floor more tense and worried than ever. With the addition of a new management firm based in the United States, the main characters must bring in new business and make new connections both in and out of the office.
On Oct. 25, HBO picked up Industry for the third season. Kathleen McCaffrey, Senior Vice President of HBO Programming, said in a statement that “Industry reached new heights in its second season, solidifying its status as a buzzy hit with addictive storytelling, layered characters, a breakneck pace, and sharp observations about how people work today.
“We’re very proud of what Mickey and Konrad, Jami O’Brien, Jane Tranter, and the team at Bad Wolf, along with our whole cast and crew, did. We couldn’t be happier to keep traveling with them in season three.

The co-creator of Gen Z, Konrad Kay, said that he and his longtime friend Mickey Down still have a lot of ideas for the show. Kay told The Guardian in late August, “I think we’re just getting into our stride.” He said that the show was about “playing the game and getting what you want.
He and Down have already “thought a lot about where [the characters] might be in three or four years.” Here’s what we know so far about Season 3 of Industry.
The Industry Season 3 Release Date
After the first episode of Industry aired in November 2020, HBO renewed the show the next month. But filming was over almost a year later, in December 2021, and the show didn’t come out until August 2022. If Season 3 is officially renewed in October 2022, that would put the start of Season 3 in the middle of 2024.

But since at least some of the delays between Season 1 and Season 2 were caused by the pandemic, it’s possible that a third season won’t take as long to make, so it may come out in late 2023.
Industry Season 2 starred Myha’la Herrold (Harper Stern), Marisa Abela (Yasmin Kara-Hanani), Harry Lawtey (Robert Spearing), and David Jonsson (Gus Sackey) from “Graduates,” as well as Ken Leung (Eric Tao) and Conor MacNeill from “Management.” No future casting news has been made yet.
Herrold, who recently co-starred in Bodies Bodies Bodies, told Bustle in September 2022 that Industry was the project that made her believe in herself. She said, “Now I know for sure that I deserve to be here because I have proof that I can do it.” “And I lived to tell about it.
In the second season of the show, new cast members Alex Alomar Akpobome (Danny Van Deventer), Indy Lewis (Venetia Berens), Katrine de Candole (Celeste Pacquet), Jay Duplass (Jesse Bloom), Sonny Poon Tip (Leo Bloom), and Adam Levy (Leo Bloom) stirred things up at Pierpoint & Co. and beyond.
With the news that HBO’s Industry will be back for a third season, Pierpoint & Co will officially open its doors again to show the tough world of banking and trading. With all the love the show got for its second season, which ended on September 19, the news doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone interested in the lives of the young people trying to make it in the business world.

In the first and second seasons, viewers met a group of recently graduated bankers who wanted to make it big in their industry. After the stock market crash of 2008, the newcomers have to work hard to keep their positions. After their first year as professionals, the graduates grew up and went their way in the second season. With new management putting Pierpoint’s very survival at risk, it’s clear that only the strong will make it.
Even though there have been no announcements about who will be in the third season of Industry, most of the main characters are likely to be back. The second season had a great cast, including Myha’la Herrold, Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, David Jonsson, Ken Leung, Conor MacNeill, Alex Alomar Akpobome, Indy Lewis, Katrine de Candole, Jay Duplass, Sonny Poon Tip, and Adam Levy. Sarah Parish, Nicholas Bishop, Sagar Radia, Mark Dexter, and Caoilfhionn Dunne brought

In recent years, shows about how businesses work have become very popular, so it’s not surprising that Industry has found an audience. From scripted shows like Succession to documentaries like The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley, which tells the story of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes way too much, people can’t get enough of dramas about people with an entrepreneurial spirit.
