'The Morning Show' Exec Producer Talks Season 3 Plans, Though the Show Isn't Renewed Just Yet

The season two finale of The Morning Show is now streaming on Apple TV+ and one of the show’s executive producers is opening up about plans for a possible third season.

Apple has not yet renewed the show for season three, but there are already talks of what could happen in the new episodes.

The second season didn’t end with a cliffhanger and executive producer Kerry Ehrin explained why in a new interview.

Kerry was asked why they didn’t end season two after episode nine, when we found out that Jennifer Aniston‘s character Alex Levy has COVID. That would have ended the season on a cliffhanger.

“I didn’t ever think of that as an ending,” Kerry told Deadline. “One of the really interesting things about doing this job is seeing how other people interpret it, react to it, and respond to it emotionally. It’s really interesting to me, and it’s cool, but I always felt like we needed a landing place for Alex emotionally, for Bradley. I’m not really a writer that lives in cliffhangers. I do them to some extent because they’re great, they have a purpose, but I really feel good emotionally about what I’m doing, when I need to land it. I need to land the plane a little bit.”

Kerry was asked if season three will have a time jump like season two did. She replied, “I don’t know at this point. My instinct is there will be a time jump.”

Kerry was also asked what she’s curious to explore in a possible third season.

“Well, I definitely want to see more of Bradley and Laura. I feel like Alex has come to a place for the first time since the pilot of accepting who she is and facing her worst fears, and I want to see how the phoenix rises from the ashes for her, and learning how to have a full life and be present and loving,” she said. “I know these don’t sound like big, hooky plot points, but this is how I begin a story: I begin from what I see inside the character and what I want to experience next with them, and I feel like Alex deserves that at this point. I’m curious where the fate of UBA is going. I love the Cory-Stella relationship. I think they are a great story about sort of the transition of the old world and the new world, and I think they’re both just such rich characters, and I’m excited to see how they develop.”

When asked if Paola’s footage of Mitch will ever bubble up again, Kerry said, “I think it might.”

Here’s what Julianna Margulies had to say in response to backlash for playing an LGBTQ character on the show.
