Sad news for fans of Aaron Sorkin's HBO series, The Newsroom: According to TVLine, the network has confirmed that the series will end after a third and final season.

"The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin -- smart, riveting and thought-provoking," HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement on the decision. "I'm sure this farewell season will be one to remember."

The series, which follows a cable news anchor named Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) and his network production staff (Emily Mortimer, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Allison Pill), premiered in 2012 to fairly mixed reviews, though it did earn star Daniels an Emmy last year. Production on the final season will begin some time this spring, with the episodes set to premiere in the fall.
