HBO announced premiere dates for three returning shows on Tuesday. “The Newsroom,” “The Comeback” and “Getting On” each will begin their new seasons on Nov. 9.
The evening of premieres begins with “The Newsroom” at 9 p.m. ET/PT. It’s the third and final season for Aaron Sorkin‘s cable news drama, which stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Sam Waterston and Jane Fonda, who previously told TheWrap she has a significant role in the final, six-episode run, “particularly in the last episode.” Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul return as executive producers, with Paul Lieberstein joining the show as an executive producer.
“The Comeback” begins its eight-episode season at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The HBO comedy, which stars Lisa Kudrow as fading star Valerie Cherish, originally aired in 2005 and returns after almost a decade-long hiatus. The series was created by Kudrow and Michael Patrick King, who are executive producers along with Dan Bucatinsky.
“Getting On” kicks off at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. The darkly comedic series, from creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, follows the daily lives of doctors and nurses trying to care for elderly patients amid an outrageous and overwhelming health care bureaucracy that is the American healthcare system. The HBO show stars Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez.
