I’m a big fan of HBO’s the Newsroom, shocker for anyone who listens to the show or who has read my review of this seasons opening episodes. So it is easy to understand why I would be eagerly awaiting news from HBO that the series will be renewed for a third season. With just two episodes left in it’s sophomore year, HBO has expressed interest and desire to renew the series, but concerns over the scheduling conflicts having to do with writer and creator Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming feature project, a bio-pic of Apple founder Steve Jobs.
While we still await word from HBO officially, if we are to believe the Twitter account of the shows star, Jeff Daniels, then the word is coming very soon. See the tweet below, which came over the wire late last night, stating: “It’s official. #Newsroom coming back fro Season 3.”
It’s official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3.

This is great news if true, as it officially becomes the second longest show that has been run by Sorkin. His previous efforts have been critically well received, but mostly short lived, as Studio 60 lasted just one season and Sports Night for only 2, though both of those series had the usual 22 episode runs per season as opposed to the Newsrooms 10. Sorkin’s most notable work on television is the multi-Emmy award winning The West Wing, which lasted 7 seasons total, 4 under the pen of Aaron Sorkin. We will continue to update you as the official word comes from HBO, but in the meantime, the final two episodes of season 2 begin to air this Sunday at 10:00 pm EST.
