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.

It seems concerns about the renewal chances of HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' for season 3 proved unfounded, as series star Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to announce that the series would indeed return. Or will it? HBO claims that Daniels' announcement arrived prematurely, leaving the future of 'The Newsroom' not so set in stone as we might have thought.

HBO's 'The Newsroom' has been mired in controversy and debate from its very inception, whether by Aaron Sorkin's tense relationship with the media, or the uneven reception of the series itself. Most critics have come to consensus that the still-airing second season has marked a significant step forward, but are HBO or Sorkin himself dragging their feet on a third season renewal?

'The Trial of the Chicago 7' was one hot project in 2008, with Aaron Sorkin writing, Steven Spielberg directing, and Will Smith and Sacha Baron Cohen rumored to star as Bobby Seale and Abbie Hoffman, respectively. The project has been dormant for a while, but 'The Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass might be the person to bring it back to life.

Though with less fanfare than 'Game of Thrones' or 'True Blood,' HBO's controversial Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' will premiere its second season this coming Sunday with "First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers." Mouthy titles aside, the new season will introduce a host of new characters from the likes of Grace Gummer, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater and Constance Zimmer, so why wait to meet the new faces delivering Sorkin's favorite recycled lines?

A few weeks ago, a profile of 'The Newsroom' and 'West Wing' creator Aaron Sorkin emerged that portrayed the writer's complicated writing habits, which had actually cost the HBO drama an episode from its second season order due to costly reshoots. And while many 'Newsroom' detractors have previously pointed to a "Sorkinism" supercut that illustrated the writer's frequently recycled dialogue, the sequel version has us looking more forward to 'The Newsroom' season 2 than ever.

Though numerous criticisms have been leveled at HBO's Aaron Sorkin-scripted 'The Newsroom' since its inaugural season last summer, we remain optimistic over the revamped second season debuting on July 14. That said, it seems writing difficulties and production mishaps have reduced the second season's length from 10 to 9 episodes overall, as Sorkin admitted a "false start" to shooting, among other idiosyncrasies.
