'Newsroom' Season 2 Trailer: 'Together, They Stand Alone'

Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy stumbles through a desert, chasing after his exec producer (and ex-girlfriend), MacKenzie.

The Newsroom
"Newsroom"

A new trailer for the second season of HBO's Newsroom, premiering July 14, shows Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy as his curmudgeonly and confused self -- except he's in an arid desert, not a chaotic newsroom.

The clip, set to the soundtrack of Tom Odell's "Can't Pretend," sees Will stumbling past his co-workers: Maggie (Alison Pill) flirts with Jim (John Gallagher Jr.), who's then magically replaced by Don (Thomas Sadoski), the third in an ongoing love triangle. Neal (Dev Patel) throws a phone. Sloan (Olivia Munn) appears frustrated in front of a TV camera. Will's boss, Charlie (Sam Waterston), raises a glass underneath a billboard of his boss, Jane Fonda, that warns: "I'm Watching You."

Will chases after exec producer (and ex-girlfriend) MacKenzie (Emily Mortimer) until she disappears. Then, joined by his colleagues, he stumbles upon a television set. Cue the tagline: "Together, They Stand Alone."
