Ben Platt & 'The Politician' Cast Tease Season Two in NYC!

The cast of The Politician are getting ready for season two!

Lucy Boynton, Julia Schlaepfer, Theo Germaine, Rahne Jones, Laura Dreyfuss and Ben Platt all got together to attend a special screening and conversation panel for The Politician at 92Y on Monday (October 28) in New York City.

“We start shooting in 10 days,” Ben told Variety a few days ago. “I don’t really know much, I’ve only seen the first episode but I know there’s a lot about the transit system, climate change, young voter turnout.”

On working with Bette Midler and Judith Light on season two: I’ve spent a lot of time with Judith, who is the most wonderful person,” Ben said. “I think I’ll be a little more intimidated by Bette because she’s an icon in musical theater. I’m mostly just so thrilled to show up and rise to their level.”
