The Morning Show season 3 release date

Who’s in The Morning Show season 3 cast? In 2019, the award-winning drama about the behind-the-scenes trials and tribulations of an American news show gripped viewers. Starring huge names, many have found themselves hooked and are dying to know what is next for UBA.

The Morning Show is easily one of the best Apple TV shows and follows Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston), the host of a wildly popular breakfast news show, and former field reporter Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon). Among the best TV series on the streaming service, The Morning Show confronted real-life issues such as the #MeToo movement and COVID-19 while always keeping things firmly tongue-in-cheek with its slippery characters.

With season 3’s premiere, The Digital Fix has checked its teleprompter and is ready to give you the inside scoop on the return of one of the best drama series around. Here’s everything we know about The Morning Show season 3 release date, cast list, plot, and much more.

Who’s in The Morning Show season 3 cast?

The Morning Show season 3 cast features Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon as Alex Levy and Bradley Jackson. They’re supported by Billy Crudup, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, and Jon Hamm. 

In big news, Jon Hamm joined season 3 as Paul Marks, a “corporate titan” who looks at ‘saving’ UBA. He’s a clear Elon Musk type of character, echoing the current climate around billionaires.

One person who didn’t return for season 3 is Steve Carrell as Mitch Kessler since the highly controversial figure was killed off in season 2.

The Morning Show season 3 release date and reviews

The Morning Show season 3 was released on Wednesday, September 13, 2023, to positive reviews.

People‘s Tom Gliatto called season 3 “the series’ best go-round yet,” writing that “the plot digs into the juicy topic of whether new tech can or should rescue “legacy” media. The endless maneuverings and counter-maneuverings to clinch the deal or scuttle it are entertaining, engrossing and brisk.”

Season 3 (at the time of writing) sits at 69% on Rotten Tomatoes with just under 30 critic reviews. Apple TV Plus has already confirmed it will return for a fourth installment, so there’s more to come from Anniston and co.

What is The Morning Show season 3 about?

The Morning Show’s season 3 plot is about a tech titan (Jon Hamm) who takes an interest in UBA. This causes shifting loyalties among the characters as they are forced to confront their own ethics.

In the season 2 finale, we saw some wild developments that changed a lot of characters’ lives. For starters, Alex got Covid-19 and went on a rant on-air, Daniel quit the show, and we saw Cory’s streaming service launch fail spectacularly. Oh yeah, and we saw Cory confessing his love for Bradley. A lot has happened.

In season 3, we see ideas around the evolving tech industry’s hands in the news cookie jar, and there are timely discussions around saving floundering networks like UBA as Hamm’s character maneuvers around it.

The Morning Show has always been one of those series that plays like a game of chess, and as characters continue to try to work each other over and position themselves, that continues in season 3.
