The Emmy-winning series The Morning Show returned for a second season earlier this year, focusing on the coronavirus pandemic.
The drama follows the inner workings of a morning news show, with Jennifer Aniston playing Alex Levy, host of a popular US talk show, and Reese Witherspoon as former field reporter Bradley Jackson.
The first season was rewritten to reflect the #MeToo movement, and likewise, the second season pivoted to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic, after production was shut down six weeks into filming in March 2020. In the second season, Aniston’s character even catches COVID-19 in the final episodes.
However, it’s not yet clear whether the series will return for another topical season, with no word yet on a possible third season.
Speaking to Deadline about possible storylines for season three, executive producer Kerry Ehrin stressed that she wanted to see more of Bradley and Laura, a season two addition played by Julianna Margulies.
“I definitely want to see more of Bradley and Laura. I feel like Alex has come to a place for the first time since the pilot of accepting who she is and facing her worst fears, and I want to see how the phoenix rises from the ashes for her, and learning how to have a full life and be present and loving. I know these don’t sound like big, hooky plot points, but this is how I begin a story: I begin from what I see inside the character and what I want to experience next with them, and I feel like Alex deserves that at this point.”
Speaking to The New York Times, Aniston seemed to express an interest in focusing more on those caught up in public scandals in a possible future The Morning Show season.
Read on for everything you need to know about The Morning Show season three.
Will we get The Morning Show season 3?
The Morning Show season three has not yet been officially confirmed by Apple TV Plus.
Season two premiered on 17th September 2021 exclusively on the streaming service.
If the show does get renewed we can likely expect it back in late 2022 if the show goes into production swiftly.
Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com, for £4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
The Morning Show season 3 cast speculation
The cast is led by Jennifer Aniston playing Alex Levy and Reese Witherspoon as former field reporter Bradley Jackson, who becomes Alex’s co-host, so if the show does return then we can expect both of them to return.
Other actors we could expect to return with Aniston and Witherspoon include Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Greta Lee and Desean Terry.
Additionally, The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies could return as journalist Laura Peterson.
It is unknown if Bel Powley would make a return considering her reduced role in the second run.
However, one person who would not return unless in flashbacks would be Steve Carrell as Mitch Kessler after the controversial figure was killed off in the second run.
Italian actress Valeria Golino could potentially return, however, like Kessler’s lover, Paola Lambruschini.
When will there be a Morning Show season 3 trailer?
There’s no trailer yet for The Morning Show season three as the show is not in production after not yet being renewed.
We will keep you updated when footage becomes available.
