‘The Newsroom’ Season 2: Aaron Sorkin Dishes on Season Structure and Plot

The Newsroom Season 2 Aaron Sorkin Preview

Given ‘True Blood‘s’ generous spurt of new footage this weekend, we were also finally able to catch a glimpse of ‘The Newsroom‘ season 2, after the Aaron Sorkin drama’s prior teaser skipped out on showing the actual cast. The latest preview for ‘The Newsroom’ season 2′s July 14 premiere sees a new structure to its storytelling, as well as a quick refresher on what characters will have unsorted drama, so check out an early preview of ‘The Newsroom’ season 2 inside!

All eyes will be on ‘The Newsroom’ season 2 when new episodes premiere July 14, given the divided critical reception of the HBO drama’s first controversial season. In advance of the next cycle, HBO has issued a new behind-the-scenes look into the season hosted by acclaimed writer Aaron Sorkin himself, which reveals that ‘The Newsroom’ season 2 will use a unique storytelling structure that sees the character preparing for a deposition in a wrongful termination suit.

The second season of HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ features appearances by ‘Justified‘ star Patton Oswalt as the fictional networks new vice president of human resources, Marcia Gay Harden as litigator Rebecca Halliday, and Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer as a reporter embedded within the Mitt Romney campaign, to which Jim has since re-located. We know that much of season 2 will focus on the 2012 elections, but Sorkin added to the list of news stories events such as Trayvon Martin, the Affordable Care Act, drones, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Muammar Gaddafi.
