Woke-Busting ‘Morning Show’ Preps Season 3 Debut

Apple TV+ original explores MeToo overreach, Identity Politics in fresh ways

You can’t keep a good news anchor down.

Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston), the embattled star of TV’s biggest morning program, is back for another round of corporate news nonsense.

Both Aniston and co-star/co-producer Reese Witherspoon return for season three of “The Morning Show,” set to debut Sept. 13 on Apple TV+. The drama shares the behind-the-scenes tumult at a successful news talk show where the veteran anchor, played by Steve Carell, is accused of serial sexual relationships with co-workers.

That leaves Alex scrambling to rebuild her legacy while Witherspoon’s Bradley Jackson attempts to bring a measure of respectability to the wobbly news franchise.

It’s the ultimate MeToo drama, but it doesn’t offer easy answers on the most pressing cultural issues of our age. Instead, the award-winning drama brings nuance to hot-button issues, daring to explore issues from multiple angles.

The show bows with two of the 10 season-three episodes come September, and we haven’t seen the last of Alex and Bradley. The show already has a season four renewal under its editorial belt.

Here is the third season’s official description which suggests the introduction of a Elon Musk-style figure:

This season, 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 weaponized, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom. Along with Aniston and Witherspoon, the star-studded season three ensemble cast is lead by Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Greta Lee, Jon Hamm, Nicole Beharie, and Julianna Margulies.

Hamm and Beharie join the star-studded cast for season three.


  1. could not agree more….the core story lines were compelling and the characters were as well. It was just that they continually pushed their blatant agenda over the core human stories of the series, which I believe the audience really wants see/watch. Please just give us a show that shows a balance, if they have to bring politics into the series, and focus on the characters and make their politics/agendas second fiddle to the everyday human experience.

  2. Wow. Lots of wokeness at that Morning Show network. Every episode doesn’t need to be a life lesson, you know. And certainly not a life lesson from liberals. I like all the characters, except when they become embedded in the front of real life news events we’ve already experienced in our own way, and processed in our own time. Sending Bradley into space may have just been the Jump the Shark moment, what a shame. Ladies, get away from saving the world and spewing the liberal narrative and get back to entertainment. Please. The world is heavy enough without this fictional spin.

  3. Its gone full woke this season. The past seasons had some nuance, but now they are full woke. Every position of power is held by a woman, every woman is just one opportunity away from being a lesbian, and men exists only to be the enemy or the foil to the superiorly strong women. I have watched two episodes and already they discussed January 6th as if it was 9-11, had a weak kneed man call an old l;ady “the iron lady” like a sad little lap dog, had a boss woman mock an on air talent for possibly having private data stolen while at teh same time she empathized with a poor woman who was violated in teh exact same manner, and had a man beg forgiveness for daring to have a sexual relationship with a woman.

    1. It happened so quickly, too! What a shame … the show’s nuanced approach to the MeToo movement was fascinating and original. I guess when Carell left the show it was all over.

  4. I used to love Aniston and Witherspoon. I used to binge Friends and watch anything either of them starred in. I even streamed AppleTV+ just so I could watch The Morning Show.
    Then they both stuck their opinions in my face and attempted to condemn my thinking, using shame and guilt as their weapons.
    I canceled AppleTV+, sold my Friends ten-season collection, and absolutely refuse to watch or rewatch anything they do. Anything.
    I’m very happy to be set apart from woke thinking.
