Only one more news cycle left for HBO's The Newsroom. Announced on Monday via the network, HBO has decided to renew their critically-acclaimed show The Newsroom for a third and final season.
While news was still unclear about the future of the show, HBO officially confirmed the end. The Aaron Sorkin drama will begin production for their final season in the spring, with the airing scheduled for Fall 2014.
Also biting the dust on the broadcast side is ABC's low-rated spy drama The Assets. Launching with little fanfare and a 0.7 in the 18-49 rating, The Assets was pulled after two low-rated episodes. Originally intended to be an eight-part miniseries, no word yet has been announced if the remainder of the series will be aired. I wouldn't be surprised if it's used as a filler in the summer or didn't air at all. I'm usually pretty on the ball regarding new shows and yet I've heard little about The Assets until the day it aired. Oh well!
