Smash is back and it’s going to be better than ever! The television series about what it takes to make it on Broadway returns for it’s second season tonight, and with the new season comes a chance for everyone on the Bombshell team to reinvent themselves—including Jack Davenport’s lovably ornery director, Derek Wills. “Aspects of Derek’s personality kind of come back to haunt him quite significantly, which is probably no bad thing—growth has to come somewhere,” the actor told InStyle.com at the premiere of the Donna Karan short “Haven’t We Met Before,” which he starred in and his Smash co-star Anjelica Huston directed. But that doesn’t mean everything has changed: “The unique selling point of our show is that there aren’t any other shows on television about Broadway out there, so we kind of doubled down on that. The drama is very much contained within the work place in a way that it wasn’t quite so much last year. There are more songs—more of the things that only we have.” More of the things we love—not to mention a few new things, like guest stars Jennifer Hudson and Broadway’s Jeremy Jordan. Tune in to NBC at 9 pm. EST tonight to watch Smash 2.0. Break a leg, everyone!
