Apple TV+'s star-studded drama series announced that it will be returning for a third instalment in the future.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon will be back as Alex and Bradley for 'The Morning Show' season three on Apple TV+.

Following the exciting sophomore season finale, it will be interesting to see what direction the third entry will take. With the global pandemic taking centre stage in the series' storyline, how will the media personalities handle the ever-shifting subject matter that is still here nearly three years later?

At the end of season two *spoilers follow*, the COVID pandemic began to impact more on the lives of the characters. Bradley manages to locate where her brother is with the help of Cory, who admits that he's in love with her; meanwhile, Alex tests positive for COVID after leaked footage of her at Mitch's memorial service goes viral.

'The Morning Show' season three will once again see Aniston and Witherspoon return as executive producers. In its two years, the series has earned itself Emmy, SAG and Critics Choice Awards. Season three of the acclaimed drama will be showrun and executive produced by Charlotte Stoudt ('House of Cards', 'Homeland'), with Apple inking a new, multi-year overall deal with the creator.

The flagship series premiered on the streaming service in November of 2019 as one of the first TV series available on the new platform at launch. Steve Carell was also in the cast of the first and second season, but will not be returning for season three. Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass and newcomers Ruairi O’Connor and Julianna Margulies are expected to return for the next instalment.

Since its launch, Apple TV+ has quietly been gathering steam, rising up the ranks to compete against heavy-hitters such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. 'Ted Lasso' has proven to be a runaway success for the service, as has 'Servant', 'Dickinson' and 'Mythic Quest'. 'The Tragedy of Macbeth' will begin streaming on Apple TV+ later this week.

The complete first and second seasons of 'The Morning Show' are now streaming on Apple TV+.
