The Morning Show is coming back for season 3, and the already star-studded cast is set to get even brighter.

Reese Witherspoon, who acts as both star and producer of the hit Apple TV series, recently shared a first look from the set of The Morning Show.

The star and executive producer of the hit drama shared a photo from the set of the fictional daytime show, captioned, "We're baaaack! @TheMorningShow Season 3!"

According to E! News, season three will pick up where the last left off, exploring the interesting romantic angle between UBA Network CEO Cory Ellison (played by Billy Crudup) and Bradley Jackson (played by Reese).

Jennifer Aniston is also returning for the third season, continuing her role as controversial news anchor Alex Levy.

There’s another big name joining Jennifer and Reese for the third season - Jon Hamm.

The Mad Men star will be joining the show as Paul Marks, described by Apple TV as "a corporate titan who sets his sights on UBA, pulling Cory, Alex and Bradley into his powerful orbit."

As if there wasn’t enough drama to unpack after the end of season two.

The show last left off with Jennifer Aniston’s Alex Levy, freshly “canceled” by social media, live streaming her struggle with Covid. Fed up with the politics and social media policing, Alex decided enough was enough and she warned those trying to cancel her that she wasn’t going to go anywhere.

Fiery stuff. Will she be able to recover her career?

Elsewhere, Reese’s Bradley Jackson found herself in a tough spot romantically.

Cory, CEO of her network and on-off love interest, finally declared his feelings for her. Something which might be complicated by the fact she had just started a relationship with news anchor Laura Peterson (Julianna Margulies).

For her work on the show, Reese is nominated for Lead Actress at the upcoming Emmys, set to air on September 12.

Jennifer Aniston had previously won the Screen Actors Guild awards for her work in the first season.

How to watch The Morning Show

While there’s no release date known for season three, the first two seasons of the show are available to stream exclusively on Apple TV.

Both seasons are ten episodes long. Season one focuses on the #MeToo movement after Alex’s co-star, played by Steve Carell, is accused of historic sexual assault claims.

Season two follows the fallout from the first season, but, in a display of art imitating life, incorporates the coronavirus pandemic.
