‘The Newsroom’ Ending After Third Season

The-Newsroom-HBO-The-112th-Congress-Episode-3-4-550x366The third season of “The Newsroom” will be its last, HBO announced this afternoon. The Aaron Sorkin series will begin production on its last season this spring and debut in the fall.

“The Newsroom” debuted in 2012 to mostly negative reviews. The second season followed the “News Night” staff as they reported (and then retracted) “Operation Genoa,” a fake story about a U.S. military operation that was inspired by a similar situation at CNN, “Operation Tailwind,” in the late 1990s.

A number of cable news personalities, including MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield and S.E. Cupp, acted as consultants for season two.
