At this weekend's Television Critics Association Tour, new SMASH show runner Joshua Safran spoke about the highly-anticipated second season of the hit NBC musical drama. "It's bigger, with more music, younger in some regards," commented Safran, "but I hope the people who watched it still see the same show they loved."

In Season 2, SMASH will introduce a second new musical, 'Hit List', which will compete with season one's Broadway-bound 'Bombshell'. "If you look at Broadway, there are shows that take place in the 1800s and shows that take place today," explains Safran. "I wanted to represent that [on our show]." Check out an all-new sneak peek of SMASH's second season below!

The second season of SMASH will include a growing list of high-profile guest stars, including Hairspray's Nikki Blonsky, Jesse L. Martin, Sean Hayes, Liza Minnelli, Jennifer Hudson and Bernadette Peters. The second season is set for a February 5 premiere on NBC.

"Smash" is a musical drama that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater as it follows a cross-section of dreamers and schemers who all have one common desire - to be a Broadway star. The series stars Emmy Award winner Debra Messing ("Will & Grace"), Oscar winner Anjelica Huston ("Prizzi's Honor"), Jack Davenport ("Pirates of the Caribbean" films), Tony Award winner Christian Borle ("Peter and the Starcatcher"), Katharine McPhee ("American Idol"), Megan Hilty ("9 to 5: The Musical"), Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan ("Newsies"),Andy Mientus("Spring Awakening"), Leslie OdomJr. ("Leap of Faith") and Krysta Rodriguez ("Spring Awakening").
