HBO has released the first teaser for the third and final season of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom. The clever promo features a copying machine printing out pages of the script for the final episodes, and they tease story plot points of espionage, a court case, and more. I've really enjoyed the first two seasons of this series, and I wish it wasn't so short lived, but hopefully it has a strong ending.
HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo had this to say in a statement:
“The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking. I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”
Series co-star Olivia Munn added that the show will end the way Sorkin wants it to:
“I love [Season 3 being the last] because, one, I think it’s so much better to do a project where everyone’s excited about doing it and the work is really great and you’re excited about. Sorkin writes every single episode. I’m sure there’s other things that he has to do in his life, that he wants to do, and that takes a lot of time and energy. It’s like, let’s end when we still are on top and it’s feeling doing great and we’re doing work that we love. “
The final episodes of The Newsroom premiere in November 2014.
