During the recent TCA press tour, HBO president Michael Lombardo has earlier addressed the future of the critically acclaimed series sharing that, “Conversations with [creator] Aaron Sorkin are all about scheduling, as he has other commitments… I will be shocked if you would not be hearing about a renewal soon. The numbers this season are surpassing last season.”
The Newsroom two-part finale begins this Sunday at 10/9c.
