The Newsroom Has Been Renewed for Season 3, According to Jeff Daniels

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment

HBO’s The Newsroom, which is currently seven episodes into its nine-episode second season, has been renewed for Season 3, at least according to series star Jeff Daniels:

The actor tweeted as much on Tuesday night, saying, “It’s official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3.”  HBO still hasn’t confirmed the news.

I obviously don’t work for HBO, and God knows that if I was in charge of renewing shows, we’d all probably still be watching the crew of Battlestar Galactica attempt to build a new life on Earth, but I think it would be very off-base to not renew The Newsroom at this point. The series has enjoyed a jump in quality in Season 2—due in large part, I like to thinkto its new title sequence and Olivia Munn continuing to be fantastic.  I don’t think you’ll find many people who don’t consider Season 2 to be a major step up from Season 1.

HBO Boss Talks Thrones End Date, Recasting James Gandolfini, Enlightened’s Demise

July 26, 2013 Leave a comment

There is no end in sight for Game of Thrones and True Blood, HBO’s top programming exec maintained to reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

“It can go on as long as there are stories to tell,” network president Michael Lombardo said of Thrones‘ future. Regarding True Blood, which was just renewed for a seventh season, Lombardo pointed to a new energy under new showrunner Brian Buckner, adding, “No decisions have been made.”

Other highlights from HBO’s exec session:

* The shortened final season of Treme bows Dec. 1.

* The fourth and final season of Eastbound & Down will find Kenny “struggling with marriage, suburbia and his continue demons,” teased Lombardo.

* Julia Louis Dreyfuss’ Veep alter ego Selina Meyer will be running for POTUS in Season 3. “Next season we’ll see her on a bus a lot,” confirmed Lombardo. “She’ll be out on the campaign trail.”

* “We’re having conversations on how to proceed” with Criminal Justice in the wake of James Gandolfini’s passing, said Lombardo. “I can’t imagine us airing the pilot with James in it. Jim’s passing took the wind out of our sails at HBO.” The most likely scenario has HBO “reshooting” the pilot with a new actor in Gadolfini’s role.

* Enlightened‘s miniscule viewership was a factor in the show’s cancellation after two seasons, but it wasn’t the only factor. “We felt creatively that Amy’s story had come to a natural resting place,” said Lombardo. “We felt it was best to end it where we did.”

* A new project, potentially a spin-off series, featuring Melissa George’s Hunted alter ego Sam Hunter is in development at Cinemax.

* The Clive Owen-fronted medical drama The Knick has been given a 10-episode order at Cinemax. Steven Soderbergh, an exec producer on the circa 1900 project, will direct all 10 episodes.

* A third season pickup for The Newsroom is a foregone conclusion, Lombardo confirmed.
