Get your coffee ready and grab a seat on the couch because The Morning Show is almost here. The popular Apple TV series, starring Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon, returns on September 13th for Season Three. Judging by the trailer, this season will be their greatest (and perhaps, most stressful) one yet.
Since its premiere in 2019, The Morning Show has kept audiences at the edge of their seats. The series follows a daytime talk show called ‘The Morning Show,’ which has a similar structure to Good Morning America. When one of the host’s Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), is fired for sexual misconduct, the network hires rookie-anchor Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon) to take his place. It’s a last ditch effort to save the show, and for a while it works, until Bradley butts heads with her co-host, Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston), and more behind-the-scenes secrets are revealed.
Season One ends with Jackson and Levy teaming up to reclaim The Morning Show from its corrupt owners. In Season Two, their plight grows even more complicated by low-ratings, public scrutiny, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The next chapter picks up right where they left off—with a dramatic fight for survival for both 'The Morning Show' and its hosts.
Ahead of its premiere the series new showrunner, Charlotte Stoudt teased a stellar performance from the cast. “I’m excited to be joining forces with Apple TV Plus and 'The Morning Show,'” she said. “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.”
That sounds promising. Keep reading for everything we know about Season Three of The Morning Show.
