No current event is safe.
For those of us who like to hear our news a year late and dramatized for effect, The Newsroom, Aaron Sorkin’s drama about the inner-workings of a cable news network, has been renewed for a third season. Jeff Daniels, who plays Will McAvoy, a news anchor for the fictional ACN network, tweeted the news late yesterday saying “It’s official. “#Newsroom coming back for a Season 3.”
While HBO itself hasn’t confirmed the news, it’s a pretty sure bet that the drama will be gracing television sets for a third year. The issue of The Newsroom’s return seems to lie more with Aaron Sorkin and his busy writing schedule. The Newsroom has been a huge ratings hit for the premium cable channel, and we couldn’t imagine the network going forward without one of it’s flagship programs. The drama often likes to grab its plot points from real-life news stories, it will certainly have a lot of material to cull from next year.
