The 2nd run of the Large Hadron Collider started in 2015. Compared to the 1st run (2010-2012) the proton-proton collision energy was increased from 8 TeV to 13 TeV. I will review the 1st LHC run, then describe the improvements for the 2nd run, and discuss selected results obtained based on the 2015+2016 data. I will also provide an outlook towards the future plans of the LHC and the experiments.
