What Is The Plot Of The Morning Show Season 3?

During season two, The Morning Show saw the news team emerging from yet more wreckage. From the sudden death of Mitch Kessler and a new UBA anchor Laura Peterson—who Bradley strikes up a relationship with—to Alex bordering on cancellation after she’s been spotted visiting a disgraced Mitch in Italy, each character is forced to accept that they will have to make some difficult decisions to move forward.

As for what will happen in the show’s third season, the official synopsis says, “The future of the network is thrown into question and loyalties are pushed to the brink when a tech titan takes an interest in UBA. Unexpected alliances form, private truths are weaponised, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom.”

The trailer (which you can watch in the video player above) also gives us a good taste of what’s to come, and we can’t wait…
