Has The Newsroom been renewed for season 3?
Jeff Daniels says The Newsroom has been renewed for season 3, but there's been no word from HBO...
HBO has been dragging its feet on revealing whether or not a third season order has gone to its Aaron Sorkin-scripted current affairs drama, The Newsroom, so yesterday, lead Jeff Daniels did away with the formalities and Tweeted the news himself.
“It’s Official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3" was the unequivocal message from Daniels on Twitter. That clears that up, then.
Except, HBO have yet to back him up. There's a strong probability they will, especially judging by HBO programming president Michael Lombardo saying last month during the TCA press tour that he would be "shocked" if the series didn't return. Just a little jumping the gun there from Daniels, it seems.
