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 think, to 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.
