Almost two years after the end of the second season, The Morning Show finally has a return date to the Apple TV+ screen. The Emmy-winning series, starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon will premiere its third season on September 13, and is getting the audience ready with the first images of the new episodes.
In the first installment of the show, Aniston is introduced as Alex Levy, the long-time host of one of the most successful morning shows on television, who suddenly has to deal with her partner, friend and even for a brief moment lover, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) being accused by various women for assault.
To avoid a major crisis, the network behind the show decides to erase all ties to Kessler and bring in a new host, the fearless and temperamental Bradley Jackson, played by Witherspoon. However, the conflicts within the company, the differences between the two women, and the crisis on classic television will show that Kessler’s case was just the tip of the iceberg.
In addition to the returns of its two biggest stars, season three will bring back Billy Crudup as Cory Ellison, Mark Duplass as Charles “Chip” Black, Nestor Carbonell as Yanko Flores, Karen Pittman as Mia Jordan, Julianna Margulies as Laura Peterson, and Greta Lee as Stella Bak. They will be joined by Jon Hamm and Nicole Beharie as the big new additions.
What to Expect from The Morning Show Season 3
In the finale of the second installment, after suffering strong rejection from the audience because of her relationship with Kessler, Alex is going through a crisis but decides to get closer to the public again, now at home in the midst of the outbreak of the pandemic.
Bradley, on her part, started a romance with Laura, which put her once again under the spotlight while her family was going under a major crisis, as usual. So there’s definitely a lot for both of the leads to deal with during the new season, which will be 10 episodes long.
The installment of the Apple TV+ show will find the network in a new crisis when a large technology company shows interest in buying UBA. The possibility of the arrival of new owners, and with them many changes, tests the loyalty of employees and executives, will destroy friendships and will once again put The Morning Show in a vulnerable situation, already being a program that walks a tightrope.
So the series will definitely have to move on from Mitch Kessler and all the conflicts around him, mainly focusing on the relationship between its main characters and everything that’s going on behind the scenes on a company in crisis.
The Morning Show has already been renewed for a fourth season earlier this year, so fans can expect a new open-ended denouement and still plenty of unresolved conflicts in this new installment of the acclaimed series, which returns on September 13.
