"Newsroom" canceled? That's exactly the news coming from HBO now. The bad news for fans is that "The Newsroom" will be canceled after it concludes its third season in the fall. A report from Monday (Jan. 13) confirms that the network has made the decision to move on from the journalism drama.

The critically acclaimed show starred Jeff Daniels in the lead role and it won him an Emmy award for it. It's based on a fictional cable news network where he is basically the face of it. It has seemed like the network was going to stick with the show for a while, making this latest announcement very surprising.

A statement from HBO programming president Michael Lombardo reads in part, "The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking. I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”

The season premiere of the third season has not yet been set on the schedule made available to fans, but that will probably come at some point during the summer. As this is considered breaking news, there also hasn't been a reason given for why "The Newsroom" got canceled already. Ratings seemed good enough for the show to survive on HBO, but maybe the cost or production got too high or Jeff Daniels had decided he was ready to walk away from the show. Those are only theories at this point though.
