Variety reports that “The Morning Show” has been renewed for Season 3 at Apple, with Charlotte Stoudt boarding the series as showrunner.
“I’m excited to be joining forces with Apple TV Plus and ‘The Morning Show,’” said Stoudt. “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.”
‘The Morning Show’ Renewed for Season 3 at Apple, Charlotte Stoudt Joins as Showrunner
The Morning Show Season 1 ended with Jennifer Aniston’s character Alex quitting UBA after exposing the network’s toxic work environment. Alex quitting left her co-host Bradley (Reese Witherspoon) on her own, and in season 2, Bradley finds an ally in new character Laura Peterson, played by Julianna Margulies.
This September 17, The Morning Show returns for season 2 and the trailer for the new season looks incredibly bleak. Everyone is seen here with miserable, frightened, or angry looks on their faces as a creepy version of “New York, New York” plays over it all.

All of the movies and TV shows returning to production are using enhanced safety protocols, and The Morning Show will be no different. In fact, the show may have an easier time doing it in front of the camera too, because the second season of the series is expected to incorporate the coronavirus pandemic. After all, this is a drama series about a morning news show, and something like that would be quite the hot topic, and it will also allow for social distancing between characters on set.\nApparently addressing the coronavirus pandemic was a big shift in the narrative for the second season. Mark Duplass told Deadline that rewriting was being done on the second season due to the pandemic. Funnily enough, the same thing was done on the show’s first season due to the #MeToo movement making headlines and becoming a big part of the story in the show’s debut. While it makes sense for the coronavirus pandemic to be incorporated into the show, I’m not sure viewers are hungry for entertainment to confront something that they’ll already have been forced to deal with for far too long. Sure, some of the best drama reflects reality, but it would have been nice to have a season of this show address something a little more fictional. Obviously, how the characters deal with this crisis will make for some compelling drama, but this still feels like one of those instances where it really is too soon to tackle something like this.
