From casting news to possible storylines, fans have been patiently waiting for any (and we mean any) updates regarding The Morning Show season three.

Last year, Apple TV+ announced that the drama series would return for a third season. Then, in May, Jennifer Aniston revealed plot deets on The Tonight Show regarding a major new addition to the cast: “Everybody has a secret. We’re revealing a lot of secrets. There’s a lot of romance: Mr. Jon Hamm. We were very excited to get Mr. Hamm.” Next, Reese Witherspoon unveiled the release date for season three: September 13. And now, the streaming platform has surprised fans with not one, but two official trailers for the upcoming installment.

Here’s everything we know about The Morning Show season three (so far).

1. When Is The Morning Show Season 3 Release Date?

This question has been on every fan's mind, and thankfully, Witherspoon has finally given us an answer.

The Legally Blonde alum shared a still from the show to her Instagram account, along with an informative caption, which read, “Bradley Jackson is back for round 3 y’all... @themorningshow is coming to @appletv September 13th.”

Apple TV+ confirmed that the first two episodes will premiere on September 13, followed by weekly episodes every Wednesday. That day can't get here soon enough.

2. What Will The Morning Show Season 3 Be About?

While the plot for The Morning Show season three is being kept under wraps, that didn’t stop Aniston from thinking about a possible storyline. In an interview with Variety, the 54-year-old actress revealed that she would love for her character’s love life to be explored.

“I think it’s time to see Alex find some love and some passion,” she said. “She could put the controls down and go into the vulnerability of opening up her heart, which I don’t think she’s ever really quite done.”

The Friends star also shared that she would love for Alex to make more friends. “She needs a good girlfriend! Chip is Chip, but come on,” she jokingly admitted. “We need her to go out and have a girls’ night—and not well. Messy! I want to see her go to the supermarket and just walk around the world and get out of her ivory tower a little bit.”

3. Who’s In the Cast of The Morning Show Season 3?

In the new season, we’ll most likely see the return of many familiar faces. Alongside Witherspoon and Aniston, these main cast members will probably return: Billy Crudup (Cory Ellison), Julianna Margulies (Laura Peterson), Greta Lee (Stella Bak), Desean Terry (Daniel Henderson), Mark Duplass (Charlie Black, aka Chip), Nestor Carbonell (Yanko Flores), Karen Pittman (Mia Jordan) and Ruairi O'Connor (Ty Fitzgerald).

However, there will be a new character joining the morning crew. As Aniston mentioned, Apple TV+ has announced that Jon Hamm is set to star in the new installment of the series. The 52-year-old actor will play a character named Paul Marks. According to the streaming service, Paul is “a corporate titan who sets his sights on UBA, pulling Cory, Alex and Bradley into his powerful orbit.”

4. What Is The Morning Show About?

The Morning Show follows news anchor Alex Levy (Aniston), who works on a popular a.m. news program broadcasting straight from Manhattan, New York. Alex fights to keep her job as a rivalry brews between her and a field reporter named Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon).

Season two ended with Alex catching COVID—and it’s a major breaking point, which culminates in her producer convincing Alex to live stream it all on UBA+. “It’s a portrayal of what happens to a person being that broken down and that kind of surrendered because your body is so sick, where there’s no filter and there’s just the truth,” Aniston told The Hollywood Reporter. “She’s spent the whole season trying to plug up all the holes in the canoe so she could not be found out, this desperation. But now she’s saying, unapologetically: This is who I am, this is what I am.”

5. Is There a Trailer?

We’re so glad you asked. The first teaser trailer picks up right where season two ends, with the UBA employees staging a revolution. Bradley Jackson wants to return to her roots, saying, “You know, we were supposed to change things, weren’t we? I wanted to make a difference.”

On the other hand, Alex Levy simply wants power. “I need to have a say in the future of this place,” she says. And then adds, “Honestly, let all the secrets come out. They did not protect me.”

Meanwhile, Hamm’s character doesn’t waste any time getting down to business. “You need a miracle,” he says. “I am offering you a lifeline.”

The trailer ends with Aniston adding, “I hope it was all worth it.”

6. Hold On, There Is a Second Trailer?!

Why yes, there is. Just hours ago, Apple TV+ surprised fans by sharing a second The Morning Show season three trailer across their social media channels. And might we say, this new teaser is even more drama-filled than the first. 

The second trailer begins with Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon) making a huge confession on air. “I wanted to make a difference,” she says into the camera.

Meanwhile, Alex Levy (Aniston) is fighting to secure her place at the network. “What you’re asking for is unprecedented,” her boss tells her, to which she responds, “I am unprecedented.” 

The trailer leaves fans with so many unanswered questions by showing a short scene between Jackson and Levy, where they are standing on a building rooftop. Then, Levy looks at her coworker and says, “We should finish what we started.”

7. Are There On-Set Photos?

In September 2022, Aniston and Hamm were spotted on the set of The Morning Show season three. The mysterious photos didn’t give too much away, but they did show the pair riding in a car together. Perhaps Aniston’s love interest wish will come true.

8. Are There Behind-the-Scenes Photos?

Witherspoon offered a rare glimpse of what happens when the cameras aren’t rolling. The pics posted to Instagram show the actress making a silly face while sitting backwards in a director’s chair, posing in Aniston’s character’s dressing room and more.

9. Is There Any News on Season 4?

Yes. In April, Variety reported that The Morning Show secured early renewal. With season three premiering in fall 2023, we can only speculate that season four will follow suit in 2024.

Until then, we’ll be stashing away our favorite coffee to drink with the season premiere.
