Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon fans, rejoice. The duo will be back on our television screens on September 13 when SAG and Critics Choice Award-winning drama The Morning Show returns to Apple TV+ for season three. And the trailer has finally arrived.
This season, the future of the network is thrown into question again, as a tech titan takes an interest in broadcast company UBA. A first-look reveals Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and Sleepy Hollow’s Nicole Beharie will join ensemble cast Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Greta Lee, and Julianna Margulies.
“Loyalties are pushed to the brink,” reads the statement from Apple TV+. “Unexpected alliances form, private truths are weaponised, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom.”
Long known as a rom-com darling (Think: She’s The One, The Object Of My Affection, Picture Perfect and Along Came Polly) Aniston took home the Best Actress In A Drama Series gong at the 2020 SAG Awards for her role as Alex Levy, the clever and sharp-shooting anchor-woman, in The Morning Show.
“Boy, did we get to dive deep into our own experiences [to] breathe life into these extraordinary characters,” Aniston said upon accepting her award. “Who knew emotional breakdowns felt that good? It was literally like seven months of therapy covering 20 years of work. So, thank you for watching that!”
A standout scene includes the below where Alex lays down the law before a phalanx of blue suits.
“America loves me. And therefore I own America,” says Alex in a revolutionary red coat. “You guys are so convinced that you are the rightful owner of all of the power that it doesn’t occur to you that someone else could be in the driver’s seat.
The Morning Show has also been renewed for season four.
Aniston, 54, and Witherspoon, 47, first met on the set of Friends when Witherspoon, then 23, was playing Aniston’s character’s younger sister.
“I was 23 years old and had just had a baby,” Witherspoon told People. “I was nursing [daughter] Ava on set, and Jen just kept going, ‘You have a baby?’ I was like, ‘I know, it’s weird.’ … I remember her being like, ‘Where are you going?’ And I was like, ‘I’m pumping!’”
The Morning Show Season 3, Will Stream on September 13 on Apple TV+. Watch the Trailer Below
