This just in: Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show” has finally begun production on season three. On Aug. 17, Reese Witherspoon, one of the series’s stars and executive producers, shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the fictional daytime TV show set on social media. “We’re baaaack!,” she tweeted with a selfie of her dressed in-character as Bradley.
“The Morning Show” was renewed by Apple TV+ on Jan. 10, two months after season two’s dramatic finale. According to the streamer, the upcoming season will welcome a new showrunner, Charlotte Stoudt, aboard the series. “I’m excited to be joining forces with Apple TV+ and ‘The Morning Show,'” Stoudt said in a statement. “The cast, led by the phenomenal Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, are truly to die for. Kerry, Mimi and Michael, and the teams at Media Res, Hello Sunshine and Echo Films, have created an irresistible world that is equally delicious and provocative.”
In addition to Witherspoon and Aniston — who also executive produces the series with her costar — “The Morning Show” cast features Karen Pittman, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Janina Gavankar, Bel Powley, Desean Terry, Tom Irwin, and Marcia Gay Harden. Some of the new cast additions include Hasan Minhaj, Greta Lee, Ruairi O’Connor, Holland Taylor, Tara Karsian, Valeria Golino, and Julianna Margulies.
The Emmy, SAG, and Critics Choice Award-winning series was originally picked up for only two seasons at Apple TV+, but buzz around the show has turned it into a full-on global hit. “The Morning Show”‘s renewal news comes on the heels of its successful sophomore season, which picks up after the season one finale, when Bradley and Alex (Aniston) expose the toxic culture at their network. Season two’s abrupt finale leaves viewers wondering which direction the news drama will go in next, but hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long now that we know season three is being filmed.
