Despite lackluster reviews for its second season, The Morning Show has been renewed for a third season at Apple TV+ — with its third showrunner.
Despite starting off very strong with the build up to the COVID-19 pandemic, the quality of the second season fell off a steep cliff.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Charlotte Stoudt will take over as showrunner starting with season three. Kerry Ehrin, who developed The Morning Show and who served as showrunner on the first and second seasons, will serve as consultant on the third season while continuing to develop new series for Apple TV+ under her previously announced overall deal.
The Morning Show, which is the flagship drama for the streamer, had returned with its 10-episode second season back in September. Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+ stated,
“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,”
“We’re excited to see where Charlotte takes these extraordinary characters in season three and to watch the magic that Jennifer, Reese and our awe-inspiring cast continue to bring to the captivating world of morning television.”
