THE Newsroom will return for a third season according to its leading man Jeff Daniels.

The actor Tweeted on Tuesday night that the Aaron Sorkin scripted series had been renewed by HBO.

“It’s official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3,” declared Daniels, who plays anchor Will McAvoy.

The revelation comes a month after HBO programming president Michael Lombardo noted publicly that he would be “shocked” if the series didn’t return.

The only potential stumbling block at that point had been the schedule of in-demand series creator Sorkin, who also has to pen the script for his Steve Jobs film before returning his attention back to the ACN News Night team.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, issues the third season may well confront include the Newtown School shooting and the Boston Marathon massacre.
