‘The Newsroom’ series finale preview: What to expect in Aaron Sorkin’s final chapter
Tomorrow night, the end is shockingly here for “The Newsroom.” The reason that we add the word “shockingly” here to this article is because we honestly never imagined that we would be at this point so soon.
Sunday night’s finale has the challenge of wrapping up all of the major stories, but this will be complicated further due to the heavy specter of Charlie Skinner that hangs over the entire story. His death changes everything at “News Night.” It complicates Will McAvoy’s future, and the entire way that news is done. Basically, he was the only thing that stood in the way of Pruitt running wild, and doing what he wanted to the division.
In the video below, you can see Will McAvoy and Mackenzie McHale struggling to figure out how they want to move on, what to say to honor the head of ACN’s news division, and also what their own legacy will be. It does appear that Will may have at least one more show on the air in him, but who knows what will happen after that?
Unfortunately, what we can tell you for the time being is that this is not going to be a story that runs for a considerably longer amount of time than usual. While it would have been great to have a 90-minute finale just to have some more footage to look back on, this episode is instead running only 66.
