The Morning Show’s first season was released in 2019 alongside the launch of Apple TV+, since then the show has seen huge success and has won many awards.
The season two release date was announced in 2021 and the second season was released in September 2021, almost 2 years since the release of the first season. The reason for the longer wait between the first and second series appears to be due to COVID-19.
Season three of the show will be showrun and executive produced by Charlotte Stoudt, who has worked on shows such as ‘Homeland’ and ‘House of Cards’ and has now also signed a multi-year deal with Apple TV+. Kerry Ehrin served as showrunner on the first and second season, but will now continue as a consultant on the third season and will continue developing new series for Apple TV+.
Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+ has said:
“It has been thrilling to watch ‘The Morning Show’ go from strength to strength over the past two seasons, exploring topical storylines that have resonated with audiences around the world while also being incredibly addictive and entertaining,”
In 2020, Billy Crudup won an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his performance as Corey Ellison. The show also received other awards and many nominations. At the current time Apple TV+ shows, documentaries and movies have received 92 wins and 788 award nominations.
In the statement announcing the third season for the show, Apple said the following to describe season two:
“Picking up after the explosive events of season one, season two found “The Morning Show” team emerging from the wreckage of Alex (Aniston) and Bradley’s (Witherspoon) actions, to a new UBA and a world in flux, where identity is everything and the chasm between who we present as and who we really are comes into play. Along with Aniston and Witherspoon, the star-studded cast includes Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bel Powley, Desean Terry, Janina Gavankar, Tom Irwin and Marcia Gay Harden, as well as new additions for season two Greta Lee, Ruairi O’Connor, Hasan Minhaj, Holland Taylor, Tara Karsian as news producer Gayle Burns, Valeria Golino and Julianna Margulies.”
It is currently not known when the third season of ‘The Morning Show’ will be released.

It is unknown how many subscribers Apple TV+ currently has, but it is known to be less than 20 million, however, according to Digital TV Research the service is expected to reach 36 million subscribers by 2026.
