‘Smash’ Season 2 Trailer: Will This Season Give Us “A Show We’ll Never Forget”? [Video]

Smash Season Finale (NBC) "Bombshell" Episode 15 (3)

Backstabbing, showstopping numbers, and Jennifer Hudson– NBC’s dramatic season two trailer for Smash features a show ready to earn back some of the buzz it squandered in its first season.

The trailer sets up several of the new stories for season two including the promising introduction of Hudson as a Broadway star named Veronica Moore. Hudson is just one of several stars who will be lending their talents to Smash this season, others include Broadway-legend Liza Minnelli, Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) and Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order).

Season two has plenty in store for the returning characters as well though. Ivy (Megan Hilty) finds herself being edged out of the show within the show by Karen (Katharine McPhee), while Eileen (Anjelica Huston) could be in trouble with the government. For more sneak peeks at what’s in store on the new and (hopefully) improved Smash, check out the trailer below.

Season two of Smash premieres Tuesday, February 5th at 9:00PM ET/PT on NBC.
