'Newsroom' Actors Thomas Sadoski And Jeff Daniels Say Season 3 Is Happening


Will "The Newsroom" be back for a third season? Thomas Sadoski and Jeff Daniels seem to think so.

Last week, star Jeff Daniels tweeted that Season 3 was a go.

HBO quickly issued a statement implying that "official" was a strong word.

“We are excited about proceeding to a Season 3 and are continuing our conversations with Aaron about schedules," the network said, according to Deadline.

But in an interview with Zap2it, Thomas Sadoski -- who plays Don Keefer on the series -- confirmed Daniels' enthusiastic tweet.

"That's what I've been told. I don't know what the holdup is on their end [in announcing it], but to every question I've asked of them, they've said, 'Yes.'"

"The Newsroom" airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
