“Newsroom” is on its third and final season, but before the show airs, we have the full trailer for you right here.
The trailer clearly showed its focus this season: the Boston Marathon bombing that happened April 2013. A light was also shed upon social media’s relation to news coverage, “Social media’s gonna solve this crime,” we heard Neal Sampat say.
Everyone is getting panicky with what’s happening on social media to identify the culprit behind the Boston marathon bombing, and one of them is Will. He will also be facing government agents as they come to him to divulge who their source is.
“It’s something that we’ve been talking about for the last 2 years: government and journalism. A lot of people feel like the current administration has been really tough on reporters and whistleblowers. I realize I’m not making it sound exciting, but it involves one of our characters in a lot of jeopardy. Our people have a story that was given to them by a government whistleblower and the Justice Department wants the name of their source and they won’t give it up. So we see how far they’re willing to go for that,” as described by Aaron Sorkin, the creator of the show.
This is what fans can expect on the upcoming season of “Newsroom,” and we don’t think that it’s not as “fun” as Sorkin said so, because a show that tackles real-life events is interesting enough, especially to those who are very interested in this field.
In Season 3, B.J Novak (“The Office,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) and Kat Dennings (“2 Broke Girls,” “Thor”) will appear on the show together with Jeith Powell. Sorkin will start writing each episode again, despite the trouble the show had with their production in Season 2.
“Newsroom” returns on Nov. 9, 2014.
