The second data-taking run of the CERN Large Hadron Collider, which lasted from 2015 through 2018 at an increased center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV for proton-proton collisions, has just completed. This talk will briefly summarize some of the experimental challenges surmounted during this period and give an overview of some of the main physics results delivered so far. This includes results on the Higgs boson coupling to fermions, the search for Supersymmetry in several final state topologies, and other selected searches for particles beyond the Standard Model. A brief overview of the preparations for an upgrade to the experiment for operation at the High Luminosity LHC starting in the mid-2020s also will be reported.
