HBO Industry ended its second season on the network, and it ended on a rather dramatic note.
The show follows a group of graduates who try to become investment bankers at Pierpoint & Co, no matter what they have to do to get the job.
Season 2 saw Harper (Myha’la Herrold) in shock after a season where she did everything she could to keep her place in the investment bank.
In the Season 2 finale, Harper’s past actions came back to haunt her when she was fired from Pierpoint for falsifying her transcript so she could get the job at the company.
That’s not all that happened to Harper in the show’s final season, as she found herself trying to cheat to make a client’s investment grow, and she even participated in a insider trading.
But in the end, the finale saw Harper’s former manager Eric Tao (Ken Leung) do the unexpected by revealing to Pierpoint that she lied in her application for the job, which led to her being fired. of the company.
The show hasn’t been renewed for a third season yet, but creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay have revealed they’re already planning what’s next for Harper and the show’s other characters.
talk to TIME about the series, down confirmed that they have already started working on the story as he said, “The joy of doing a third season after creating characters in the first two is that you can crush characters you don’t have together yet.”
Kay also opened up about the shocks of the Season 2 finale, telling the publication, “When [Eric] says, “I’m doing this for you”, I think 50% of the public will think he’s doing this because she’s his worst enemy, and she’s done something illegal, and she needs to get out form the bank. The other 50% might think she’s been a thorn in their side for two seasons, and they need to get rid of her, and both are true.”
What this might mean for Harper and the other characters will no doubt be a priority for next season, should the show be renewed, and Down has already teased their future plans.
The co-creator said things are “going to be huge” when it comes to a potential Season 3, and maybe beyond, but he didn’t specify exactly how that would be.
Industry is available to watch on HBO Max now.
