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.'
Just a few days ago, concerns arose over HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom,' whose production-challenged second season and modest ratings made it unclear if the cable network would opt to pursue a third season, given the delay in announcement. Now, Aaron Sorkin fans can breath easy as 'The Newsroom' season 3 will officially unfurl on the teleprompter in summer 2014!
It wasn't long ago that Jim Carrey exited 'Dumb and Dumber 2' with co-star Jeff Daniels naturally trailing right behind him. But don't give up hope just yet, guys. Looks like Daniels thinks the Farrelly brothers will get it together by next summer, and Jim Carrey still wants to do it, and unicorns are giving birth to kittens under waterfalls made of fro-yo.
