This just in – “The Newsroom” will be back in November for its third and final season, and HBO is beginning to give fans a look inside the new episodes. The network released a short teaser trailer for the new season over the weekend in an effort to get fans excited for the final episodes.
The teaser, not even showing scenes or footage from the new season, rather whets fans’ whistles by showing pages of the new episodes’ scripts being photocopied. Fans with a sharp eye can make out some of the dialogue on the pages and get a clue about what’s in store for Season 3. The quick glimpses seem to center around some legal trouble for Will McAvoy and co. ending with a line from Will, “Well, I think it’s time for me to quit,” followed by “Fade to black.” The final shot shows the scripts’ title page by Aaron Sorkin, the show’s creator as well as the creator of “The West Wing” and the Oscar-winning writer of “The Social Network.”
Fans will remember that Season 2 of “The Newsroom” left off with the CAN crew still dealing with the aftermath of the Genoa debacle. In the end, Reese and his mother decide not to accept Mac, Charlie and Will’s letters of resignation, opting to weather the storm together. Many personal issues were resolved as well with Sloan kissing Don, Lisa and Maggie speaking, and Will finally proposing to Mackenzie.
However, if the teaser is any indication, the happiness won’t last. The team is not through dealing with the Genoa mess and that might be the cause of the legal troubles hinted at in the trailer. Plus, what will cause Will to want to quit? Fans will have to wait until November to find out.
“The Newsroom” Season 3 premieres in November on HBO. Why do you think Will will feel pressured to quit? Tweet your thoughts to @Ja9GarofaloTV.
