Industry Season 2 is finally here, along with some of the brilliant and compelling cast from the first run.
Co-creator Mickey Down has promised that “the show’s universe has expanded significantly to include new clients, new bosses, new love interests.”
Yes, yes and yes!
The first series, which aired in late 2020, introduced us to a largely unknown British cast.
But now we’re FULLY invested in their characters and their relationships.
So who is in the cast of Industry Season 2 on BBC One? Here’s everything you need to know!

Myha’la Herrold plays Harper Stern in the cast of Industry season two
In Season 1 of Industry, Harper held her cards close to her chest.
We know she’s lying about something, but we know something crucial about her – her brother is missing.
At the end of the first run, she showed that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants – even if it makes a whole lot of enemies.
She chose to bring back her toxic boss, Eric Tao, for Sara Dhadwal (who wanted the young graduate to help her change the culture at Pierpoint).
The decision saved her job but destroyed her relationship with Daria Greenock (Freya Mavor), who was fired to make room for Eric.
The decision also made Harper very unpopular with girlfriend Yasmin.
Executive producer Jami O’Brien said, “Harper is nothing but tough.
“In Season 2, she comes back to life, energized by new work relationships, new love interests, and a potential lead in the search for her brother.”
California-born actress Myha’la, 26, was a relative newcomer before landing the role of Harper Stern.
The role of Harper was her first major TV role ever.
Prior to starring in Season 1, Myha’la had appeared as a background character in the films Rehabilitation of the Hill and Dymond in Premature.
She played Tami in an episode of Modern Love.
Since then, Myha’la has appeared as Logan in Plan B and Jordan in Bodies Bodies Bodies.
The actress is currently filming Leave the World Behind with Ethan Hawke, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon and Mahershala Ali.

Marisa Abela plays Yasmin Kara Hanani
Season 2 begins a year after the peak of the pandemic and graduates can no longer hide behind their graduate status.
Yasmin and her colleagues must drive new deals and form new alliances both in and out of the office, while Pierpoint and his junior bankers seek every advantage in a post-Covid world.
Viewers know that by the end of Season 1, Yasmin broke up with her pretty useless boyfriend — and not early!
After all, we all want her to get together with Robert, don’t we?
The sexual chemistry between them is palpable.
Actress Marisa, like the majority of the young cast, was relatively unknown before being cast in the London-based series.
But that all changed after she landed the role of Yasmin in the eight-part drama linked to girl creator Lena Durham.
British actress Marisa, 25, only graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in 2019.
She has a BA in Acting and her graduate profile says she was a circle swimmer for Sussex.
Marisa’s first major TV role was as PM’s daughter Ellie Sutherland on Sky One’s Cobra.
Before that, Marisa made her television debut as a child actress in a supporting role in the 2008 film Man in a Box.
Marisa recently filmed a role for Five Dates, a pick-your-own console rom-com filmed via video chat during lockdown.
Future roles include the James Norton film Rogue Agent and Sam Riley’s She is Love.
Industry Season 2 Cast: Harry Lawtey plays Robert Spearing
In the Industry Season 2 trailer (below), Robert is seen celebrating his worries away.
He is also seen in the back seat of a car with Pierpoint’s predator client Nicole, where she puts her hand on his leg.
Viewers will know that Sarah Parish’s character sexually assaulted Harper in the back seat of a cab in Season 1.
By the end of season one, Robert’s future at the bank was unknown.
But now we know he scraped through it and landed a job at Pierpoint.
Like the rest of the cast, Harry Lawtey is a relative newcomer and Industry marks his first starring role.
Harry is a graduate of the Sylvia Young Theater School and the Drama Center London.
His first TV role came in 2012 as Young Mark on the TV series Wizards vs. Aliens.

He has since appeared as Bobby Andrews in the film Benediction and as Robert Blakiston in the TV series Magpie Murders.

Not surprisingly, 25-year-old Robert is also a model.
He has starred in a Burberry campaign and played a heartbroken single in Sam Smith’s music video ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’.
Harry is also a singer who plays the guitar and can perform ballet.

Actor David Jonsson returns as Gus Sackey in the Industry Season 2 cast.
By the end of season one, Gus had quit his job at Pierpoint and was looking for fulfillment elsewhere.

Actor David made his television debut in 2018 playing Cromwell Ames in Endeavor.
He then played Theo in the short film Gen Y, which he also wrote and directed.
In 2019, he starred as Isaac Turner in Deep State before winning the role of Gus in Industry.
His next major role is as Chris Eubank in the film Eubank directed by and starring David Harewood.
