WATCH: New “Smash” Extended Trailer With Jennifer Hudson

NBC’s Great White Wat drama Smash is obviously turning up the diva factor for its second season, debuting February 5: From Katharine McPhee telling Megan Hilty she can take wait for the next elevator to J-Hud hitting the high notes and giving some words of advice about keeping on top.

Hudson plays two-time Tony winner Veronica Moore, who’s obviously upsetting an already upset apple cart. Joining the Oscar winner when Smash returns are Liza Minnelli, Sean Hayes and Rescue Me hunk Daniel Sunjata, who will play a new love interest for Debra Messing’s Julia Houston.

We’re living for the soapy conflicts and Broadway flair but the music itself is a little, um, rough around the edges. Or maybe we’re just being too demanding. Are you excited for the new season?


Smash returns to NBC on Tuesday, February at 9pm.
