The Morning Show already renewed at Apple TV+ for a season 4 just ahead of the premiere of season 3

The Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon hit drama has had a staggered run so far, but the pace is picking back up.

One of the original banner series for Apple TV+ is The Morning Show which stars big names like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell. The drama has been a success for Apple, although it’s been stifled a bit due to COVID. Season 2 would stream on the platform in late 2021, but season 3 is currently on the way later this year. Now that the show is returning, according to Deadline, The Morning Show has already been renewed for season 4.

It’s also been reported that prior to the renewal, Aniston and Witherspoon’s contracts only go to the end of season 3. Apple is currently in talks with the stars and fully expects them to sign on for season 4. There are even talks of an option for a season 5. Season 3 of The Morning Show will be welcoming some new stars to the cast, which includes Jon Hamm, Stephen Fry, Tig Notaro, and Nicole Beharie. Witherspoon has shared that the addition of Jon Hamm in particular had “everyone excited.” Hamm will be playing a media mogul named Paul Marks who reportedly gives Billy Crudup’s Cory Ellison a “run for his money.”

The Morning Show also features an ensemble including names like Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bel Powley, Desean Terry, Janina Gavankar, Tom Irwin, and Marcia Gay Harden. The Apple drama will have a new showrunner taking over with Charlotte Stoudt, executive producer on Pieces of Her, replacing Kerry Ehrin. She will be joining executive producer Mimi Leder, who also directs for the series.

In addition, Media Res, Hello Sunshine, and Echo Films produce the show, along with Michael Ellenberg, Kristin Hahn, and Lauren Neustadter on board as executive producers. When AppleTV+ premiered its streaming service, they had lined up only a few pieces of original content at first, but the popularity of the streamer has enjoyed much success ever since with the comedy Ted Lasso becoming a major hit with both critics and audiences. Lasso would win a bevy of Emmys while The Morning Show earned an Emmy and a Critic’s Choice Award for Billy Crudup, as well as a SAG award for Aniston.
