Apple’s award-winning drama, The Morning Show, has been renewed for a fourth season. Apple TV+ announced the news ahead of the series’ debut of Season 3, which is set to drop this fall.
The streamer announced today that The Morning Show (also known as Morning Wars) will return for a fourth season. The drama series, which both stars and is executive-produced by Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, is yet to see the premiere of its third season, which was also set to be the end of the pair’s contracts. According to a Deadline report, Aniston and Witherspoon are currently in scheduling talks with Apple for the fourth season, with the likelihood that a further fifth season may also be on the table.
Season 2 of The Morning Show is expected to bring more romance when it airs later this year. “Nothing’s funny about Morning Show. I’m kidding,” Aniston said about the series during a recent Collider interview promoting her new film with Adam Sandler, Murder Mystery 2. The actress hinted that fans can expect questions from the previous two seasons to be answered. “There’s a lot of romance this year, and [there are] a lot of secrets that will be revealed.” It was also recently revealed that the upcoming third season will see its star-studded cast expanded to include Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Fargo) and Nicole Beharie (892, Little Fires Everywhere). Julianna Marguiles (Billions, The Good Wife), Tig Notaro (We Have a Ghost, Star Trek: Discovery), Stephen Fry (The Sandman, Heartstopper), and Natalie Morales (Self Reliance, Harley Quinn) are also set to reappear this season.
