Shhh. Can you hear that? It’s the winds of change… and they’re blowing blank pieces of paper all over the Desert of Discontent, or wherever ACN’s News Night team has gathered for The Newsroom season 2’s promotional campaign. (Thought we were done with tumbleweeds and moody stares after that second Newsroom trailer? Think again!)
These nine new posters — which feature each of the show’s regulars, as well as a group shot — come on the heels of a Newsroom event at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in which series creator Aaron Sorkin teased a few more specific details about his drama’s sophomore outing. (Spoilers, naturally, follow.)
The season will span Aug. 23, 2011 (the day Muammar Gaddafi’s Tripoli compound was captured by rebel forces) to Election Day 2012, and will include one episode that’s “an absolute” love letter to journalists. Sorkin also revealed in March that the season will cover events including “the Tea Party/American Taliban, the general election including the primaries and conventions, Trayvon Martin, the Affordable Care Act, and drones.”
The Newsroom‘s second season premieres July 14 on HBO.
