HBO subscriptions have been something of a running joke through the TV industry, with a great many of the network's loyal fans sharing HBOGO passwords to avoid expensive cable packages, previously the only mean with which to watch shows like 'Game of Thrones' or 'True Detective.' Now, the company has finally acquiesced, and announced an independent streaming service due out in 2015.
The third and final season of HBO's 'The Newsroom' won't go to presses until November 9, but Will McAvoy and the ACN news team are pulling out all the stops in the first official trailer. Goodbye pretentious copy machines, hello Boston bombing outrage, international espionage and all the Sorkin-y relationship drama you can handle for 'The Newsroom' season 3!
HBO's 'The Newsroom' has never quite earned creator Aaron Sorkin the acclaim of its TV predecessors, but we'll be sad to see it go all the same when the first of a final 6 episodes premiere on November 9. Our latest behind-the-scenes look at season 3 confirms that the topical drama will tackle government whistle-blowers, also revealing that 'The Office' star B.J. Novak will join Kat Dennings among the major guest stars for the season.
Fans of HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' (come on, there's at least a few of you) were somewhat let down by the initial season 3 teaser, which offered little more than xeroxed pages of the final episode scripts. And while a proper trailer is still to come before the November premiere, find out what's got Will McAvoy so dapper, and what McKenzie's shooting at in our first footage from 'The Newsroom''s final season!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the third and final season of HBO's 'The Newsroom,' but in lieu of any major casting announcements or footage, it seems we at least have a premiere in mind. The network has finally copied up our first cryptic teaser of 'The Newsroom' season 3, touting its "final episodes," but what secrets are hidden between the lines?
The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
HBO has long been a thorn in the side of streaming media enthusiasts, only licensing its content to be accessed through HBO GO, unlike the Netflix and Amazon Prime models that have become so commonplace in recent years. Now, the pay-cable network struck a surprising Amazon Prime deal to deliver streams of a variety of shows past and present, but don't expect to start that 'Game of Thrones' marathon just yet.
Surprised though we were to see HBO agree to make season 3 of Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' its final season, the early end has nothing on his latest revelations about the journalism drama. Speaking from a recent conference, Sorkin straight up apologized for criticism of the series, simultaneously previewing a few major world events that will end up covered (*cough* scrutinized) when 'The Newsroom' returns this summer.
Last week saw HBO delivering updates on its highest-profile series, confirming final seasons for both 'True Blood' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' but it seems the TV reaper had one more axe to grind. Aaron Sorkin's oft-debated 'The Newsroom' will officially return for a third season, though the coming year will end the Emmy-winning Jeff Daniels drama altogether with a final run.
As many people were flipping back and forth between the second-to-last episode of 'Breaking Bad' and the 2013 Emmy Awards, many assumed that Bryan Cranston would take home one last Best Actor Emmy for his work as Walter White. Those people (including us!) were wrong, as Jeff Daniels pulled off the upset of all upsets and won Outstanding Lead Actor for his work on 'The Newsroom.'
