‘The Newsroom’ Final Season Trailer Brings Boston Bombings, Spies and Sorkin-isms
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!
Our first full look at the final 6 episodes of HBO's timely newsroom drama brings a wealth of new footage and quips, particularly as Will panics about the social media fiascos related to identifying the Boston Marathon bombers. Later on, Will faces government agents for protecting an anonymous source leaking classified documents, while Don and Sloan navigate their new couple-ish relationship. Sorkin-y dialogue everywhere!
Here's how series creator Aaron Sorkin himself describes the final season:
It’s something that we’ve been talking about for the last 2 years: government and journalism. A lot of people feel like the current administration has been really tough on reporters and whistleblowers. I realize I’m not making it sound exciting but it involves one of our characters in a lot of jeopardy. Our people have a story that was given to them by a government whistleblower and the Justice Department wants the name of their source and they won’t give it up. So we see how far they’re willing to go for that.
Additionally , we know the November run will see 'The Office' star B.J. Novak and Kat Dennings putting in guest appearances, with '30 Rock' star Keith Powell also given a recurring role. Covering the Boston Marathon Bombings among other topical events, Sorkin will once again return to write each episode, in spite of production difficulties in season 2 that saw the overall episode order reduced by three hours.
