Posted on January 13, 2014 at 3:22 pm by Justin Cavender

The NewsroomHBO announced today their Emmy-winning drama series The Newsroom will begin production on its third and final season this spring. The series is slated to return later in the fall.

The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” said Michael Lombardo, President, HBO Programming. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”

This announcement comes as a bit of a shock for me and the rest of us here at Geek Legacy. We are big fans of The Newsroom and love chatting about it on our podcast. The series follows a cable news team determined to deliver news responsibly while dealing with the fallout from their audience, corporate bigwigs, and government.

According to the press release, the series creator and showrunner Aaron Sorkin will be joined by Paul Lieberstein (The Office) as an executive producer.

The returning cast includes Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Sam Waterston, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn.
