“The Morning Show” Reveals Premiere Date and First Look for Season 3
Your favorite Morning Show is back.
Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and the rest of the TMS team have picked up the pieces following the heavy pandemic-era cliffhanger broadcast the Apple series left off on.
The second season, which aired in November 2021, ended the show’s timeline in March of 2020 with the country on the cusp of lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic. When discussing possible projections around where The Morning Show could go following the finale, outgoing showrunner Kerry Ehhrin told THR at the time that she would be inclined to jump ahead, or even revisit the past, instead of picking up right where the show left off, indicating that the next chapter in the award-winning series would side-step COVID: “You could [jump into the future]. You could go backwards. It’s such an interesting little universe. You really can put it anywhere in time, and I think the challenge of the show is coming up with that big subject.”
On Thursday [June 29th], the Apple TV+ series revealed the first hint at what season three will look like with a logline and set of first-look photos (below). The 10-episode third season will return Sept. 13 with two episodes, followed by a weekly Wednesday release.
The logline reads: “This season, the future of the network is thrown into question and loyalties are pushed to the brink when a tech titan takes an interest in UBA. Unexpected alliances form, private truths are weaponized, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom.”
Along with Aniston and Witherspoon, who are executive producers, the star-studded season three ensemble cast is led by returning stars Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Greta Lee and Julianna Margulies, along with new castmembers Nicole Beharie, playing a new anchor on the show, and Jon Hamm as the aforementioned tech titan. Tig Notaro, Stephen Fry and Natalie Morales have recurring parts.
‘The Morning Show’ Snags Early Season 4 Renewal at Apple TV+
Apple TV+ is locking in another season of The Morning Show.
The tech behemoth’s streaming service has renewed The Morning Show for a fourth season. The early pickup comes several months ahead of season three for the Jennifer Aniston- and Reese Witherspoon-led drama, which is scheduled to premiere in the fall.
Season three of the show will feature new additions to the cast including Jon Hamm, playing a corporate titan with his sights on UBA and Nicole Beharie as a new anchor on the show. Julianna Marguiles will reprise her role, and Tig Notaro, Stephen Fry and Natalie Morales will all have recurring parts.
The show’s second season, which ran in fall 2021, was set a year-plus earlier than that, and its season finale showed Alex (Aniston) testing positive for COVID-19 in the early stages of the pandemic and anchoring the show from her home. As with the first season, the finale ended with a cut to a black screen.
“It’s a portrayal of what happens to a person being that broken down and that kind of surrendered because your body is so sick, where there’s no filter and there’s just the truth,” Aniston told The Hollywood Reporter of Alex’s mindset as the season wrapped. “She’s hit: Fuck it. And doesn’t give a shit what anybody thinks anymore. She’s spent the whole season trying to plug up all the holes in the canoe so she could not be found out, this desperation. But now she’s saying, unapologetically: This is who I am, this is what I am.”
Media Res, Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Aniston’s Echo Films produce The Morning Show. Charlotte Stoudt serves as showrunner for season three, taking over for Kerry Ehrin, who steered the first two seasons. She executive produces Witherspoon, Aniston, director Mimi Leder, Media Res’ Michael Ellenberg, Hello Sunshine’s Lauren Neustadter and Echo Films’ Kristin Hahn.
