On Monday, Apple officially renewed The Morning Show for a third season and hired a new showrunner, Charlotte Stoudt.

‘I definitely want to see more of Bradley and Laura,’ ex-showrunner Kerry Ehrin – now a consultant – told Deadline in November.

‘I feel like Alex has come to a place for the first time since the pilot of accepting who she is and facing her worst fears, and I want to see how the phoenix rises from the ashes for her, and learning how to have a full life and be present and loving. I know these don’t sound like big, hooky plot points, but this is how I begin a story.

‘I begin from what I see inside the character and what I want to experience next with them, and I feel like Alex deserves that at this point. I’m curious where the fate of UBA is going. I love the Cory-Stella relationship. I think they are a great story about sort of the transition of the old world and the new world, and I think they’re both just such rich characters, and I’m excited to see how they develop.’

'Good morning!' On Monday, Apple officially renewed The Morning Show for a third season and hired a new showrunner, Charlotte Stoudt
