'The Newsroom' Renewed for Third and Final Season

newsroom-waterston-mortimer-danielsNews Night 2.0 will be airing its final hours.

HBO has announced Monday that The Newsroom has been picked up for a third and final season.

"The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin — smart, riveting and thought-provoking," HBO President Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "I'm sure this farewell season will be one to remember."

Jeff Daniels, who won an Emmy for his role as Will McAvoy last year, has tweeted last September that the show has already been renewed. But the cabler declined to confirm as they were still hashing out scheduling matters with creator Aaron Sorkin.

'The Newsroom' season 3 begins production this spring, and is slated to bow in the fall.
