Loot Season 2 Renewal Status and Speculated Release Date
Yes, it is official! Apple TV’s Loot is returning for a second season. The renewal news was announced in July 2022, ahead of the finale episode of Loot Season 1, which premiered a few hours ago on August 12, 2022. As of August 4, 2022, it is speculated that Loot Season 2 won’t be available to stream this year. The series is expected to premiere sometime around early to mid-2023, exactly like the prior season, sometime around the timeframe of June 2023.
We’d like to emphasize that this is only a prediction at this moment; the actual release date will be announced by Apple TV+ as the year draws to a close and production wraps up on time. Moreover, the post-production stage will also take some time to perfect the episodes in order to make the next season much more compelling for the fans. Hence, we suggest fans to be patient for some time as these announcements take their time to be published and are made in a scheduled manner by the streaming platforms.
This show has captured the hearts of global audiences, and we can’t wait for season two. According to the official press release by Apple TV+, “Thanks to Maya, Alan, Matt, and the entire incredibly talented “Loot” cast and creative team who have created a show filled with captivating and endearing characters, and hilarious and heartwarming moments throughout each episode,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+.
Loot Season 2 Plot and Episodes
The next season is expected to follow the basic premise like the last season, which follows “Loot,” billionaire Molly Novak (Maya Rudolph) has a dream life, complete with private jets, a sprawling mansion, and a Giga yacht — anything her heart desires. But when her husband of 20 years betrays her, she spirals publicly, becoming fuel for tabloid fodder.
She’s reaching rock bottom when she learns, to her surprise, that she has a charity foundation run by the no-nonsense Sofia Salinas (Michaela Jaé Rodriguez), who pleads with Molly to stop generating bad press. With her devoted assistant Nicholas (Joel Kim Booster) by her side, and with the help of Sofia and the team — including mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Nat Faxon) and her optimistic, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Ron Funches) — Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Giving back to others might be what she needs to get back to herself.
The next season is also expected to pick up from the finale episode, The Silver Moon Summit, directed by Alan Yang and written by Alan Yang & Matt Hubbard. The official synopsis of the episode states, “Season finale. At the Silver Moon Summit in Corsica, Molly must make a choice between her past and her future.” It’s also anticipated that it will pick up any cliffhangers and subplots from the previous season and plunge right into this world with more experiments, giving viewers something fresh to consider rather than the same old theme.
Moreover, the upcoming season is speculated to have at least 10 episodes with an average runtime of approx 23–30 minutes each. We’d also like to point out that, as of August 12, 2022, the exact episode titles and synopsis for the upcoming season cannot be confirmed and are yet to be revealed by the network, which may take some time. For the time being, we recommend that fans wait patiently and binge-watch the newly released Loot Season 1 to get right back into this world before streaming the second season.
Loot Season 2 Cast and Crew
It is anticipated that the original actors will return and continue the plot in the upcoming season. Additionally, as of August 12, 2022, the network had not yet made any major casting announcements. The following is a list of the main and recurring cast of the series with their character descriptions:
Maya Rudolph plays Molly Novak: A happy-go-lucky billionaire wife who has all the things you expect a billionaire to have: a mansion with closets the size of a living room, nice boats that lead to nicer boats, and even a pet llama. However, that all falls apart when Molly discovers that her husband of 20 years is cheating on her with a younger woman. Molly walks away with a modest settlement of $87 billion, but the first trailer still has a scene where she cries while eating candy, which, to be fair, a lot of people would probably do in that situation. Much to her surprise, Molly finds out that she has a charitable organization, so, in an effort to help herself, Molly realizes that she needs to help others. This new journey of self-discovery may also humble her along the way.
Michaela Jaé Rodriguez plays Sofia Salinas: The hard-nosed executive director of Molly’s non-profit, who not-so-surprisingly managed the organization while Molly was doing whatever a billionaire who doesn’t know that they run a non-profit would do. In the first trailer, Sofia tells Molly that “part of me wants to hate you,” probably due to the latter’s oblivious nature, but she then tells her, “you pulled us together, and you made us better.” Even though this sort of dynamic is not new, especially for a show like this, seeing two very talented actresses work together in a fun workplace comedy will surely be a treat.
Joel Kim Booster plays Nicholas: Molly’s assistant who sticks with her even after the divorce.
Nat Faxon plays Arthur: The easygoing accountant at Molly’s foundation.
Ron Funches plays Howard: Sofia’s comparatively more cheerful cousin who also works at the non-profit. He also loves pop culture so expect him to spout a lot of pop culture references throughout the series.
Olivier Martinez plays Jean-Pierre: A charming French billionaire who wants his family’s charitable foundation to team up with Molly’s. Unsurprisingly, romantic tension ensues between the two characters since the first trailer depicts Molly attempting to seduce Jean-Pierre.
Some of the guest cast members of the series include:
Adam Scott as John Novak: Molly’s tech billionaire husband who cheats on her with a younger woman, leading to their divorce.
Dylan Gelula as Hailey: John’s young mistress who brings about the end of his marriage with Molly.
Loot is created, written, and executive produced by Yang and Hubbard. Rudolph executive produces, along with Natasha Lyonne and Behrens, through their Animal Pictures banner. Dave Becky of 3 Arts also serves as executive producer. “Loot” is produced for Apple by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

No, because the network has recently renewed the series for a second season. Hence, asking for any trailer or promo for Season 2 is way too early. Meanwhile, check out this official trailer from Loot Season 1 to recap the events that may continue in the upcoming season. Take a look at the official trailer below:
In the trailer, we get glimpses that after divorcing her husband of 20 years, Molly Novak must figure out what to do with her $87 billion settlement. She decides to reengage with her charitable foundation and reconnect with the real world—finding herself along the way.
