Watch: Will McAvoy Is Wanted By U.S. Marshals In Teaser Trailer For 'The Newsroom' Season 3

Over the course of two seasons, Aaron Sorkin‘s “The Newsroom” has provided some of the best hate-watching on TV. At its the finest, the show has been absolutely compelling, sharp, funny and even moving with Jeff Daniels doing some great work as newscaster Will McAvoy. But at it’s worst, is has been clichéd, tone deaf and frustrating, particularly when it comes to the relationships between characters. Sorkin has a chance to go out on high note with the third an final season of “The Newsroom,” and the first teaser trailer has now arrived.

What the promo lacks in footage, it makes up for with intrigue. Showing sequences from the script through a photocopier, we learn that Will McAvoy is wanted by U.S. Marshalspossibly for inducing someone to commit espionage, and at the very least for contempt of court—and the newscaster is threatening to quit. There’s a whistleblower angle involved too, and we have to wonder if this season will be inspired by Edward Snowden. It seems like a topic too juicy for Sorkin to overlook. But about Operation Genoa and Jerry Dantana?

We’ll find out when the show returns in November. Watch below. [Indiewire]
