Hit TV drama The Newsroom - the show journalists love to hate - is to end after its upcoming third season.

Aaron Sorkin's Emmy Award-winning series will begin production on its final season this year, according to network bosses at HBO.

Announcing the news, HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo said: "The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin - smart, riveting and thought-provoking.

"I'm sure this farewell season will be one to remember."

The show's stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Sam Waterston, John Gallagher Jr, Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn will all be returning for the final season.
