TCA 2014: Final season will premiere in the fall
HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama “The Newsroom” is ending after its upcoming third season.
The series, which won a dramatic actor Emmy for Jeff Daniels, will begin production on its third and final season this spring, and it is slated to debut in the fall. Paul Lieberstein (“The Office”) is joining the show as an executive producer.
“'The Newsroom’ is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”
The show follows the members of a cable news team on their quixotic quest to deliver serious, unbiased news. Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul return as executive producers.
The returning cast include Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Sam Waterston, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn.
