MUMBAI: The ACN News Night team will be back for another
season. On Tuesday night, Jeff Daniels tweeted that The
Newsroom has been picked up by HBO. "It's official.
#Newsroom coming back for a Season 3," the actor, who
plays anchor Will McAvoy, tweeted.
The news comes a month after HBO programming president Michael
Lombardo noted publicly that he'd be "shocked" if
the series didn't return. The hold-up has been creator Aaron
Sorkin, who will need to pen the Steve Jobs film script before
turning his attention back to Newsroom.
The Sorkin creation, set behind the scenes at a cable news
show, will have no shortage of news events to cover in a third
season, including the Newtown School shooting (December 2012)
and the Boston Marathon massacre (April 2013). The series'
second, which started airing from 14 July, will end with a
two-parter taking place on election night on 15 September.
