HBO has released a new promo trailer for season 2 of The Newsroom. This is a stylized trailer thick with metaphors. The crew are in a desert where they chase mirages and encounter some of their own fears and frustrations. The song is by Tom Odell called “Can’t Pretend”.
I’ve also included a video of Creator Aaron Sorkin talking a bit about the upcoming season. Sorkin says that this season is going to be very different from the first season as it will focus on one single event instead of multiple events that we saw occur during the first season. Sorkin explains:
“The second season of The Newsroom has a different structure than the first season did — there’s one story that goes through the entire season.”
He goes on to talk about the characters saying they are “being prepared for a deposition they’re going to have to give in a wrongful termination suit” that will apparently unfold in flashbacks over the 12-episode arc. I loved the first season, let’s hope they bring it for the second season.
The Newsroom is back for a second season on July 14th, 2013.
