Aaron Sorkin's cable news drama will go off the air after its upcoming third season, expected to debut in the fall.

HBO broke the news today, also announcing that Paul Lieberstein — aka Toby on "The Office" — will join the show (behind the scenes) as an executive producer. Lieberstein was also a writer and producer on the long-running NBC sitcom. Production of The Newsroom resumes in the spring.

I liked The Newsroom, though I understood and agreed with many of the criticisms. Still, the cast and the writing and the Sorkin sensibility — on top of a subject matter near and dear — had me at hello.
