NBC's 'Smash' - Sneak Peek of Season 2

Jennifer Hudson starred in the first extended sneak peek at the deliciously dramatic second season of Smash released during Monday’s The Voice.

Showing flashes of upcoming scenes with most of the new cast, the preview saw Karen getting a little loving from Jeremy Jordan’s character, Jennifer Hudson walking out to paparazzi telling Karen “this will be you in 6 months” and much more. Watch the video below!

The sophomore season of the NBC musical drama will see several new additions, including new showrunner Josh Safran (Gossip Girl). Guest starring this season will be Liza Minnelli, Hairspray‘s Nikki Blonksy, Rent‘s Jesse L. Martin and Daphne Rubin-Vega as well as Will and Grace‘s Sean Hayes. Bernadette Peters will also return as Ivy’s mother.

Newsies‘ Jeremy Jordan, The Addams Family‘s Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus, from the touring company of Spring Awakening, will be joining the cast as regulars, while Will Chase (Michael Swift), Raza Jaffrey (Dev), Brian d’Arcy James (Frank) and Jaime Cepero (Ellis) won’t be returning in the same capacity.

Smash returns with a two-hour episode Feb. 5 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC. It will move to Tuesday nights instead of Mondays.

It's sad this show isn't better than it is. On the surface, I SHOULD love this show, seeing as it's centered around musical theatre and Broadway and has a ton of awesome ex-Broadway talent, but it's so mediocre. :( The Marilyn Monroe musical idea is tired, Katherine McPhee's acting is downright rigid most of the time, the plotlines are recycled, many of the characters are simply unlikeable... ugh, why do I watch this show??

As much as I love Jeremy Jordan, I don't think even he can save this show. He's the only reason I'm watching this season and even then, a part of me is just hoping he suddenly starts singing "Santa Fe" or "The World Will Know." :)
