Aaron Sorkin’s newsroom based drama returns and it seems that they are shaking things up for the second season. In general, that’s no bad thing. Most shows need a first season to work out what’s working and what might need to change, if they make it through this difficult birth with an audience, then they are very lucky indeed. While it was still pretty good TV early on, The West Wing truly found its greatest stride in its second season with a slight tweak to the regular cast.
It seems the established dynamic will be somewhat changed with Jim out on the campaign trail, and a plot arc running throughout this run, probably bringing in more of the ensemble than last year’s phone hacking story.
The Newsroom returns on HBO on July 14 2013 in the US and later that week on Sky Atlantic in the UK
