Apple today revealed the trailer for all-new weekly episodes of season two of the Emmy Award-nominated Apple TV+ original series "The Problem With Jon Stewart," premiering globally on Friday, March 3. The season continues with six new episodes addressing topics including crime, defense policy, inflation, the backsliding of democracy and more.
The new trailer highlights moments from the second half of the season, including Jon's thoughts on American foreign policy, his conversation with U.S. Secretary Antony Blinken, panel discussions about the defense budget and state gun laws, and more.
This season, Stewart also sits down with General David Petraeus to discuss defense; State Senator Nathan Dahm (R-OK) about crimes and guns; Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) about prison reform and rehabilitation, and for the first time ever the series will travel abroad for Stewart to speak with foreign policy leaders.
Acclaimed host, writer, producer, director and advocate Jon Stewart, recipient of the 2022 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, leads with compassion and humor as he takes a deep dive into some of the most important issues of our time. Using comedy and common sense, the series features tough, topical and culture-moving conversations from the perspectives of stakeholders, experts and individuals confronting these issues.
Previous episodes, covering gender, taxes, Afghanistan, midterm elections and more, are currently streaming on Apple TV+.
"The Problem With Jon Stewart" is hosted and executive produced by Stewart through his Busboy Productions.
