Aaron Sorkin's acclaimed series "The Newsroom" has been renewed for a third and final season on HBO, Variety.com reports.
The renewal follows Emmy winner and Tony nominee Jeff Daniels (God of Carnage, Redwood Curtain) September tweet, "It's official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3." HBO then established that an official order for season three had not yet been made.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
