It looks like the Newsroom cast is getting back to work, with star Jeff Daniels tweeting about his own return. What did he have to say?
As we reported earlier, Daniels’ co-star Emily Mortimer let slip in her HBO Connect Q&A that season 2 filming on The Newsroom would begin on November 12. As we speculated at the time, that may have simply been Mortimer’s return, and now it looks like the cast has gone back slightly earlier than expected.
Earlier this week, Daniels tweeted:
Trying on Will MacAvoy’s clothes today. #ohhappyday
— Jeff Daniels (@Jeff_Daniels) November 5, 2012
As if that wasn’t enough to tease and tantalize us Newsroom fanatics, Daniels’ next tweet seems to confirm a return by the entire Newsroom cast:
Coming back to NEWSROOM is like coming home to a close knit family and welcoming some very talented additions. All is, once again, well.
— Jeff Daniels (@Jeff_Daniels) November 7, 2012
None of his co-stars have tweeted any confirmation on this – it’s too bad that Emily Mortimer isn’t on Twitter. And while we’re all atwitter, there is still no confirmation on the validity of showrunner Aaron Sorkin’s supposed Twitter account.
‘The Newsroom’ season 2
Two guest stars have already been confirmed as returning for The Newsroom season 2. The first episode of season 2, the title of which is yet to be announced, will air on HBO in June 2013. The first spoilers for episode 2×01 and season 2 were recently released.
