Nearly one month after the end of the first series, Showtime decided to renew the original Black Monday drama with 10 new episodes for the second season. With a premiere scheduled for 2020, filming will take place later this year.
Black Monday takes us over time, more precisely on October 19, 1987, a day written in history with the name Black Monday, a name due to the biggest losses registered by the stock exchange and the Wall Street stock market. With a mysterious mystery story through the lack of knowledge of what really happened in that fatidy day for the global economy, the new Showtime project shows how a group of outsiders stormed elitist lifestyles and what had the best of them offered, eventually collapsing the largest economic system, a Lamborghini, Don Henley’s birthday party, and some gender/sexist barriers.
Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. said:
“Black Monday mines big comedy from the greed, the style, the music, and the excess of the ’80s, but it’s also sneaky smart in its social commentary about that era – and indirectly, our current era as well. We can’t wait to see what inspired depravity David and Jordan will cook up in season two.”
