Apple TV+ unveiled a teaser for season 3 of Emmy Award-winning drama series The Morning Show Thursday, and things are starting to look pretty desperate for the show within a show. Billy Crudup’s executive producer character says “it’s time to smash and shatter” and “let’s burn it all down.”

But he’s a pretty shifty character. He might just be playing along with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon’s characters’ threat to expose the network’s horrible secrets.

The Morning Show season 3 teaser promises more talk-show drama

Starring and executive produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, the drama series returns Wednesday, September 13 with two episodes on Apple TV+. A new episode follows each Wednesday through November 8. It’s a 10-episode season.

And this season adds new guest stars Jon Hamm and Nicole Beharie, as well as returning guest star Julianna Margulies.

Here’s the streaming service’s description of season 3:

In The Morning Show season three, the future of the network is thrown into question and loyalties are pushed to the brink when a tech titan takes an interest in UBA. Unexpected alliances form, private truths are weaponized, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom. Along with Witherspoon and Aniston, the star-studded season three ensemble cast is led by Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass, Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Greta Lee, Jon Hamm, Nicole Beharie and Julianna Margulies.
