“The Morning Show” Returns For Season 3 in September – See the First Photos
Breaking news: “The Morning Show” is officially returning for season three this September. Apple TV+ revealed the newsroom drama’s official premiere date on June 29 after previously teasing a fall return on May 1. The show wrapped filming on season three back in February and according to star Jennifer Aniston, there are plenty of “juicy” things to look forward to. One tiny hint is that season three will be a bit steamier.
“Everybody’s getting in trouble,” she teased in a People interview published on June 7. “Everybody has a secret. And everyone’s just walking the line. It’s a lot more sensual this year.”
In addition, Apple TV+ – which released first-look photos alongside season three’s premiere date on June 29 – dropped more details about the new installment’s plot, revealing that an issue will arise at UBA following its exposed toxic workplace culture and it threatens the future of the TV network as everyone’s loyalty and core values are tested.
“The Morning Show” was renewed by Apple TV+ in January 2022, two months after season two’s dramatic finale. The streamer revealed the upcoming season would be led by a new showrunner, Charlotte Stoudt. “I’m excited to be joining forces with Apple TV+ and ‘The Morning Show,'” Stoudt said in a statement. “The cast, led by the phenomenal Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, are truly to die for. Kerry, Mimi and Michael, and the teams at Media Res, Hello Sunshine and Echo Films, have created an irresistible world that is equally delicious and provocative.”
The Emmy-, SAG Award-, and Critics’ Choice Award-winning series was originally picked up for only two seasons at Apple TV+, but buzz around the show has turned it into a full-on global hit. “The Morning Show”‘s season three renewal news arrived on the heels of its successful sophomore season, which picks up after the season one finale when Bradley (Witherspoon) and Alex (Aniston) unearth troubling secrets and allegations at UBA. Season two’s abrupt finale where Alex shockingly contracts COVID-19 has viewers wondering how the news drama will handle its next scandal. But the good news is a fourth season has already been green-lit, so there’s plenty more drama to come.
“The Morning Show” has never been shy about pulling inspiration from real-life scandals at American morning shows. After the show’s second season aired, “Good Morning America” anchors TJ Holmes and Amy Robach sparked headlines nationwide after photos were published of the pair canoodling together. We wouldn’t be surprised if some of that romantic drama made its way to future episodes of “The Morning Show” soon. Elsewhere, news hosts Don Lemon and Tucker Carlson were both fired on April 24, so it’s possible those incidents may provide some inspiration for season four as well. But we’ll just have to wait and see.
Ahead, check out everything we know about “The Morning Show” season three so far, and get a first look at the new and returning cast.
