‘The Newsroom’ Season 2 Preview: Is The Series Heading In A New Direction?

The Newsroom (HBO) The Blackout, Part 2 Mock Debate Episode 9

The Newsroom is shifting gears in its second season. “The second season of The Newsroom has a different structure than the first season,” series creator Aaron Sorkin promises in the new preview released by HBO.

The series will incorporate more of an overarching arc as all of the characters prepare to give a deposition in a wrongful termination suit. That doesn’t mean individual stories will be taking a backseat though: Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.) will be on the election trail with the Romney campaign, Neil (Dev Patel) will be focusing on the Occupy movement and Maggie (Alison Pill) will “episode by episode, lose everything.” Watch the preview below. Will you be tuning in this season?

The Newsroom season two premieres Sunday, July 14th at 10PM ET on HBO.
