‘Smash’ returns Feb. 5! Watch the intense 4-minute trailer here.
NBC premiered the first full-length trailer for Smash‘s second season Nov. 18 during The Voice, and while some things remain the same — Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty) are still at each other’s pitch-perfect throats — it feels like an entirely different show in many respects.
All of the dead weight from season one appears to have been dropped — even Julia’s (Debra Messing) fan-hated son Leo is out of the picture — while bright, shiny new faces have entered the fray. The most notable addition is Jennifer Hudson as Veronica, a Broadway powerhouse who appears to be a valuable ally for Karen.
Newsies star Jeremy Jordan, who joins the series as Karen’s new Brooklyn-dwelling squeeze, is also featured heavily in the trailer. Even from the few notes he sings in the video, it’s obvious he’s going to be easy on the ears — and on the eyes, but that’s another story.
Eileen (Anjelica Huston) also has some drama ahead of her, as she’s seen visiting someone — Nick? — in jail. Bombshell is definitely going to be a success, but Eileen might have to come crawling back to her ex for help with funding. And you know what that means: More drinks in Jerry’s face!
There’s a lot more to be seen in the 4-minute video, so watch it for yourself below. Then drop a comment with your thoughts: What are you most excited to see when Smash returns Feb. 5?
