This just in: The Newsroom has officially been renewed for a third and final season, HBO announced Monday.
The Aaron Sorkin drama, which stars Jeff Daniels as ACN anchor Will McAvoy, will go into production on its third season in the spring for a fall premiere date. The Office's Paul Lieberstein will join Aaron Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul as an executive producer.
"The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin — smart, riveting and thought-provoking," HBO President Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "I'm sure this farewell season will be one to remember."
The news comes after Daniels, who won an Emmy for his work on the show, tweeted in September that The Newsroom had been renewed, but that HBO was still in the process of figuring out whether Sorkin could fit it into his busy schedule.
Are you sad that The Newsroom is ending?
