The Morning Show Season 4 Begins Filming in Los Angeles and New York in July

There is fresh news concerning the latest season of ‘The Morning Show’! The filming of the fourth installment of the Apple TV series will begin in Los Angeles, California, and New York on July 8 and conclude by December 19. Since the third season, the satirical drama has been helmed by showrunner Charlotte Stoudt, with Mimi Leder on board as a director.

The show is known for keeping in step with real-world news and events. Power politics within the company, aspiring reporters challenging the hierarchy, and insightful social commentary are hallmarks of each season. The fourth season is expected to deliver on previously established arcs while factoring in the news and events of the 2024 Presidential Election.

“The show lives in a very particular zone, Biden is really president. You can’t invent Supreme Court justices or say Putin’s been overthrown,” Stoudt told Variety. “You’re always wondering if some current event will ambush your season and make it irrelevant, but that’s just an occupational hazard of this show,” the screenwriter added. Since its debut season airing in 2019, ‘The Morning Show’ has been a top performer for Apple TV+ and has secured a dozen award wins. Billy Crudup, who essays the UBA president Cory Ellison, won an Emmy Award in 2020 for his performance, while Aniston won the SAG Award in the same year.

The fourth season was greenlit in April 2023, months before the premiere of season 3. However, the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strikes delayed shooting for the new season, shifting its filming schedule to July 2024. Stoudt took over the reins of the production after completing ‘Pieces of Her,’ a Netflix mystery miniseries about a woman uncovering her mother’s dark past and the truth behind her childhood. Stoudt initially garnered acclaim for her writing in Showtime’s espionage thriller show ‘Homeland.’

Jennifer Aniston, who portrays Alex Levy in the show, talked about enjoying the creative process behind the scenes and finding the work quite fulfilling. “We thrive and it’s quite — dare I say it — easy,” she explained to Variety previously. “It’s such a pleasant set to be on. We love to communicate. We love to work stuff out, and we don’t just shove stuff under the rug. There’s no stone left unturned in a creative decision. We all put our heads together. There’s something so wonderful about trusting in your co-workers to know that if five people tell you look sick, then I’m gonna lay down, I’m gonna put my sword down on this one,” the actress added.

In addition to Aniston, we can expect to see Reese Witherspoon as Bradley Jackson, Crudup as Cory, Mark Duplass as Charlie “Chip” Black, Néstor Carbonell as Yanko Flores, Karen Pittman as Mia Jordan, Greta Lee as Stella Bak, and Nicole Beharie as Christine Hunter in the fourth season.

Los Angeles is currently home to several interesting projects, including season 2 of ‘Based on a True Story,’ season 5 of ‘For All Mankind,’ FX’s ‘Grotesquerie,’ and Elizabeth Banks and John C. Reilly’s ‘Dreamquil.’ New York is in similarly high demand as a filmmaking hub and is hosting the shooting of Jessica Biel’s ‘The Better Sister,’ the Bob Dylan biopic ‘A Complete Unknown,’ Elizabeth Olsen and Charles Melton’s ‘Love Child,’ and Tim Robinson’s ‘The Chair Company.’
