Official: 'The Newsroom' Is Renewed for Season 3


Star Jeff Daniels takes to Twitter to announce the good news, writing, 'It's official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3.'

"The Newsroom" will be back for a third season. HBO has officially picked up the show for another new season, weeks after people began questioning the series' future since the cable channel usually renews its hit series just a few weeks into the first episodes of the current season.

"It's official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3," Jeff Daniels confirms the renewal via his Twitter post. Back in July, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said he would be "shocked" if the series didn't return.

"The odds are excellent - we're enormously happy with the show," Lombardo said at the TCA summer press tour. "Conversations with Aaron Sorkin are all about scheduling as he he has other commitments. If we can figure the scheduling, I will be shocked if you would not be hearing about a renewal soon. The numbers this season are surpassing last season."

Reactions to the first season were mixed, but the Aaron Sorkin-created series received generally favorable reviews for its second season. The drama series is a strong performer for HBO, delivering 2.2 million viewers during its second season premiere.

The last episode of season 2 will air Sunday, September 15.
