‘The Newsroom’ Will See All New Writers for Second Season


If you haven’t been enjoying the “dramatically inert, infuriating mess” otherwise known by many as Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, you still may want to stick around for season two. Reports indicate that most of the writers behind the TV news drama have been fired. “They’re not coming back, except for Sorkin’s ex-girlfriend [Corinne Kinsbury],” one source told The Daily, who first reported the news. Website THR reminds readers, via HBO, these kinds of layoffs aren’t really unusual. “Every year each show reassesses the needs of its writing staffs. This process is nothing out of the ordinary.” While that’s certainly true, scathing reviews of the cable series may have also incited the pink slips. Are you giving The Newsroom another chance for round two, or is a team of new writing talent not enough to keep you watching?
