Hot off the presses! Your Sunday nights will never be the same without the fast-paced, quick wit of Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom. That’s right, don’t cry, but according to Entertainment Weekly, HBO has decided to cancel the journalism drama after the completion of its third and final season airs this fall.
We’re super sad The Newsroom is ending, because the slew of Broadway alums featured in the show have blown audiences away, even garnering Jeff Daniels an Emmy. However, silver lining—does this mean we might see Newsroom theater vets like Tony nominees Daniels, Jane Fonda, Hope Davis, Alison Pill and Thomas Sadoski, Tony winners Marcia Gay Harden and John Gallagher Jr. or Broadway newcomers Grace Gummer and Hamish Linklater back on the Main Stem any time soon?
Besides Jeff Daniels’ one-man show at 54 Below, NYC hasn’t seen any of these Newsroom stars on Broadway since 2012 and we’re ready for another God of Carnage style production!
“The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” stated HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”
