‘The Morning Show’ Season 3: Reese Witherspoon Reveals New Jon Hamm Character Details; Cory And Bradley’s Arc Will Be “Really Interesting”
he addition of The Morning Show’s newest cast member Jon Hamm has “everybody excited.” Emmy-nominee Reese Witherspoon said Friday [August 12th] during an FYC event at The Edition hotel in West Hollywood.
As she prepared to begin production that same day, Witherspoon discussed Hamm joining for Season 3 as media mogul Paul Marks. “I might have gotten a lot of phone calls from my friends when they announced Jon Hamm,” she said.
“He is the greatest,” she added. “It’s such a good part too. You’re just going to get the full Hamm. Wait, that didn’t sound right,” she laughed.
“He is a very complex character,” she continued. “He’s a media mogul and he gives Billy Crudup a run for his money, which I think is the most fun part too, because Billy could eat a scene like I’ve never seen somebody eat a scene, and Hamm gets to come in and give him a great foil.”
“It’s Alien vs. Predator,” she joked.
The Morning Show follows the professional and personal lives of employees of media conglomerate UBA, specifically, its morning show hosts Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) and Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon), with ousted anchor Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), news division president Cory Ellison (Crudup), host Laura Peterson (Julianna Margulies) and journalist Maggie Brener (Marcia Gay Harden) among others.
Filming for The Morning Show season 3 started this month, and there are some new cast additions, plus confirmation of stars returning:
Jon Hamm Joins Apple TV+’s ‘The Morning Show’
Don Draper is heading to UBA.
Jon Hamm is joining season three of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show.
Hamm, fresh from starring in Top Gun: Maverick, will play Paul Marks, a corporate titan who sets his sights on UBA, pulling Billy Crudup’s Cory, Jennifer Aniston’s Alex and Reese Witherspoon’s Bradley into his powerful orbit.
The third season of the drama series, which will see Charlotte Stoudt serve as showrunner, goes into production later this month.
It means that Hamm, who is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Commercial as part of a sarcastic ad that highlights that he has never starred in a project for Apple, finally joins the tech giant’s on-screen family.
The Morning Show is coming off a number of its own Emmy noms including Witherspoon for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and Crudup for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, which he won for season one and Marcia Gay Harden for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.
The series is produced by Media Res, Hello Sunshine and Echo Films. It is exec produced by Witherspoon, Aniston, Stoudt, Mimi Leder, Michael Ellenberg, Kristin Hahn and Lauren Neustadter.
The second season, which premiered in September 2021, ended with Aniston’s Alex contracting Covid after visiting Steve Carrell’s Mitch Kessler in Italy with the virus spreading through New York, forcing the staff to get ready to produce the show remotely. Elsewhere, Crudup’s Cory confessed his love for Witherspoon’s Bradley, who is dating Laura Peterson, played by Julianna Margulies.
We’ve added the rest of the The Morning Show season 2 HD screencaptures today, and we now have over 5,000 HD screencaptures from this season! The quality is pretty good, so be sure to have a browse. Reese was of course a highlight of the series, and congratulations once again to her for her well deserved Emmy nomination for this season. Interestingly, the 8th episode (‘Confirmations’) is the episode Reese has submitted for Emmy consideration this year – while this was definitely the most ‘showy’ of her performances, we actually thought several of the other episodes highlighted her talents better. Enjoy all the screencaptures 🙂
Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Morning Show for their 5 nominations at the Hollywood Critics Association Awards! Reese scored one of the nominations for her performance as Bradley Jackson on the series.
The HCA will have a two-night celebration at the Beverly Hilton, with the broadcast network and cable TV awards ceremony being held on Aug. 13. The streaming awards ceremony will take place on Aug. 14.

Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and More Women of ‘The Morning Show’ on Creating a Drama-Free Set and Telling Important Stories
Apple TV+’s “The Morning Show” started with a man at the center.
Season 1 began with Steve Carell’s Mitch Kessler getting fired from a popular morning talk show following complaints of sexual harassment. However, instead of focusing on Mitch, creator Kerry Ehrin leaned in on those whom his actions impacted: The women steering the ship.
Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Karen Pittman led that journey in Season 1, which earned eight Emmy nominations, while Greta Lee and Julianna Margulies joined the second season.
Season 2 of the drama continued tracking the fallout of Mitch’s firing, while tackling the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Both seasons were intense to shoot, with what was happening in real life — no one expected the pandemic would still be going on years later.
Season 2 was “awful,” mentally, says Aniston, who also executive produces the drama. That said, there was a silver lining.
“Thank God it was actually about what we we’re going through. We were able to dig into what was happening at the moment, which our show seems to be known for doing in the last two years,” she says.
