‘The Morning Show’ Season 4: Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Karen Pittman & EP Michael Ellenberg Talk Jail, Long-Lost Dads & Company Mergers

With The Morning Show named today as one of the AFI Awards’ 2023 honorees for television program of the year, the question arises, how

will the Apple TV+ show possibly up the ante for Season 4?

Will Bradley be in jail ? Will Alex be running everything? And will Cory finally give up and go home to his mom to sing another round of

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”? With the FBI, a company merger, and a sociopathic businessman (Jon Hamm) in the mix at the close of Season 3, it seems there’s everything to play for next season.

“Everybody keeps asking me if Bradley’s in jail,” Reese Witherspoon said during a press conference moderated by Deadline on Thursday, “but I don’t know if I’m in trouble.”

“But you’ve tried on jumpsuits, right?” executive producer Michael Ellenberg said.

“Did you decide on a shade of orange?” Jennifer Aniston joked.

During last season, Witherspoon (who also serves as EP on the show) saw her character Bradley Jackson quit her job and face law enforcement over her handling of her brother’s involvement in Jan 6. So, she may indeed be wearing that jumpsuit come next season.

“I think so many people can relate to the idea that you have a family history that maybe isn’t flattering or that you’re embarrassed about, or there’s a family member in your life that’s trying to actively drag you down,” Witherspoon said. “So, it was just really tender to play this woman who wanted so badly to succeed and excel, being pulled back down by the heavy weight of family obligations and her isolation.”

Witherspoon also noted that while Bradley’s mother has passed away her father is still very much alive. Would she want to bring his character back?

“I loved David Morse, the actor who played my dad in the first season,” she said. “He’s one of my favorite actors of all time. So, I hope he comes back. It was such an honor to get to do some scenes with him. He’s just so wonderful.”

Aniston, who is also an EP, said going forward, she is interested to see how her character Alex Levy will navigate the company merger she incited last season.

“It’s watching this big move that Alex made at the end of Season 3 and how’s that working out for you? That position and that huge merge happening, and to see how gracefully that she walks through that.”
