The Morning Show returns with a bang in its third season. The opening scene sets the tone with the date “March 10, 2022”. Jennifer Aniston’s character Alex Levy, remains surprisingly self-absorbed. She ponders over her own video obituary, scheduled to air if she meets an untimely end during a rocket flight. Acting titan Jon Hamm plays billionaire Paul Marks, accompanying Alex on this journey.
Unwavering, Alex continues to shine. She has cemented her success with a popular streaming interview show. Moreover, she co-hosts The Morning Show, her on-air prowess unmatched. Alex is set to fly alongside Paul Marks, a venture that has viewers asking: is this hinting toward a deeper metaphor?
Reese Witherspoon is back as Bradley Jackson, Alex’s infamous on-air partner. Her life unfolds through a sequence of messy flashbacks. We find Bradley masterminding the evening news, but her personal secrets cast a shadow over her career. Because just like Alex, Bradley is plagued with human complexities that make her an equally unappealing protagonist.
The Morning Show still offers riveting viewing despite its flawed characters. Billy Crudup and Greta Lee continue to impress as network executives Cory and Stella. Greta Lee brilliantly portrays Stella’s multifaceted emotional landscape. On the other hand, Crudup brings Cory’s passion for the job to life in an enthralling performance.
Karen Pittman’s character Mia also makes a triumphant return. Though her story feels detached from the main narrative, Pittman’s superb acting keeps viewers hooked. The Morning Show knows how to craft nail-biting newsroom sequences, a quality that remains its saving grace.
This season introduces new characters like ex-Olympic athlete Christina Hunter, played by Nicole Beharie. Comedy queen Tig Notaro shows up as Marks’s trusted aide. And let’s not forget, it’s Jon Hamm playing the new billionaire on the block. So, stay tuned for another season of secrets, scandals, and stellar performances on The Morning Show.
