The third and final season of Aaron Sorkin's drama opens in the spring of 2013 as anchorman Will (Jeff Daniels) and the rest of the "News Night" team at the fictional Atlantic Cable News (ACN) deal with startling new situations and tie up loose ends.

In other developments, Jim (John Gallagher Jr.) and Maggie fly to Russia in an attempt to locate NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden; and Reese (Chris Messina) clashes with his half-siblings, Randy (Chris Smith) and Blair (Kat Dennings).
