The Newsroom: The Complete Second Season will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from 27th October 2014 it has been confirmed.
The Aaron Sorkin drama stars Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer as network anchor Will McAvoy and his executive producer Mackenzie McHale respectively.
The second season welcomes back familiar faces in the news team including; Margaret Jordan (Alison Pill; Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn; Iron Man 2, Magic Mike), Neal Sampat (Dev Patel; Slumdog Millionaire), news-division boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston; Law & Order) and formidable Leona Lansing as the CEO of Atlantic World Media, (played by Jane Fonda; The Butler), as they set out on a long journey to change the network’s attitude to news.
As season two develops it’s clear that the format has taken a slight twist. While each episode continues to focus on a major piece of news, there’s also a series-long storyline dealing with a piece of misreporting from Will and his team, with the potential to decimate the entire channel and its staff.
