The second season will see the staff chasing a "mysterious tip which leads to a story that ultimately spins out of control," HBO said in a release.

The cast of the show includes Jeff Daniels, who plays "News Night" host Will McAvoy and Emily Mortimer as Mackenzie Hale.

Also starring in the show are Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Sam Waterston, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill and Thomas Sadoski.
