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.'
The HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' will close out its second season this coming Sunday with "Election Night, Part 2," a season that was a bit truncated by costly reshoots. To mark the occasion, we've got two new finale sneak peeks from 'The Newsroom''s newest closer, and an insider update on HBO's season 3 renewal status!
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.
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!
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?
Earlier today we learned from the HBO panel at the ongoing TCA press tour that in-development projects like 'Criminal Justice' and a 'Transporter' TV series had largely been stalled, but the premium cable network had nothing but good things to say about the futures of its current flagship hits, from 'Game of Thrones' to 'True Blood' and 'The Newsroom.' Less certain however, is the fate of Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'
This Sunday will see 'The Newsroom' season 2 display its full spectrum of Aaron Sorkinisms with premiere episode "First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers," but shouldn't the first thing we do be to check out the latest clips from the debut? Will McAvoy and the ACN staff talking over one another, and Jeff Daniels putting on a smug face await!
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.
