The network confirmed that the drama has been renewed for a third run, but revealed that the season will be its last.

HBO president Michael Lombardo said in a statement: "The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin - smart, riveting and thought-provoking.

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

Back in September, Jeff Daniels - who was named Best Leading Actor in a Drama Series at the 2013 Emmy Awards for his role as Will McAvoy - tweeted that the show had been renewed, although HBO refused to confirm the news at the time.

The actor told fans: "It's official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3."

Production on the final series is expected to begin this spring and it is tipped to premiere in the fall.

The news of the show's cancellation comes shortly after it was announced that another HBO series Boardwalk Empire will end after its upcoming fifth season.
