HBO’s Emmy-winning drama, “The Newsroom,” will begin production on its third and final season unfortunately this spring. The news was announced by the president of HBO programming, Michael Lombardo.

“The Newsroom” was created by showrunner Aaron Sorkin. It follows the members of a cable news team on their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships. Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul return as executive producers, with Paul Lieberstein (“The Office”) joining the show as an executive producer.

Returning cast regulars include Jeff Daniels (who received an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for the show last September), Emily Mortimer, Sam Waterston, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn.

“‘The Newsroom’ is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” said Lombardo. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”
