“It’s going to be quite a show,” Jennifer Hudsons character Veronica Moore says in the new extra-long trailer for the new season of Smash (watch it above!). She’s talking about her fictional Broadway show, of course, though she may as well be discussing the new approach for the second season of the show, which returns to NBC Tuesday, February 5th. The new episodes are full of promise—with new characters (Broadway heartthrob Jeremy Jordan gets a big storyline, Sean Hayes has a reunion with Will & Grace co-star Debra Messing, and Jennifer Hudson gets to show off her big voice in a big way, just to name a few), new storylines (Ivy’s fighting for Bombshell, Karen’s struggling with love and work, and Julia’s trying to get her life back together), and a new showrunner (John Safran from Gossip Girl leads the cast). “Let’s give ‘em a show they’ll never forget,” Hayes’s character Terrence Falls says in the preview above. We’re all waiting for it! Watch the trailer above for a sneak peek.
