Aaron Sorkin Shoots Down Rumors of 'The Newsroom' Returning

There have been rumors spreading this week that the HBO series The Newsroom could be returning for more seasons, but don’t get your hopes up.

Olivia Munn, who starred on the series for all three seasons, previously said she had hopes that the show would come back.

Tom Sadoski and myself, we’ve actually been having conversations with [showrunner Aaron] Sorkin about that,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “He’s very busy, but we have very high hopes that it would be able to come together, hopefully. There’s been so much that has happened in the news and in media that we could really speak on, and it’d really be interesting to see what his take would be on it and what The Newsroom would do today.”

Well, Aaron says that he has no plans of bringing the show back.

During an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden, he said, “I wish the show was on the air now. I would love to be writing it now. But there are other things coming up. I’ve no plans to return to anything I’ve done.”
