The Newsroom 2

The Newsroom follows the "News Night" team on their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships.

It's a year later, and in the days leading up to election night 2012, the News Night staff is being prepared to give depositions in a lawsuit - the circumstances of which unfold throughout the season.

A mysterious tip has led to the airing of a story with consequences no one could have anticipated.

The series is set at the fictional cable network ACN, but the news stories covered in the "News Night" cablecast are often actual past news events, or are inspired by them.

The Newsroom offers an opportunity to return to and relive the news that made headlines as they watch it unfold for the show's characters, who race to put together the broadcast.

Covering the period from August 2011 to November 2012, the second season touches on the administration's anti-terrorism policy, Occupy Wall Street, Troy Davis, Trayvon Martin, Benghazi and, of course, the primaries and general election.

New to the guest cast in Season 2 is Marcia Gay Harden as Rebecca Halliday, a lawyer hired to defend ACN staffers in its wrongful-termination case.

Also guesting this season are Hamish Linklater as Jerry Dantana, who temporarily replaces Jim when he leaves to cover the Romney campaign; and Grace Gummer as Hallie Shea, a reporter competing with Jim on the Romney campaign.

Constance Zimmer also guest stars as Taylor Warren, a Romney campaign press spokesperson who questions the coverage her campaign is getting from the media.

In the Season 2 premiere, "First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers": Will and the News Night staff are questioned by their lawyer about a story they've aired that's become a network crisis.

An on-air remark by Will has him pulled from 9/11 anniversary coverage.

Jim volunteers to cover for an embed reporter on the Romney campaign and Neal investigates the beginnings of Occupy Wall Street.

In the second episode of the weekend double bill, "The Genoa Tip": A tip on a story that will ultimately cripple the network starts to become more real.

Mackenzie (Emily Mortimer) and Sloan (Olivia Munn) continue to push Will (Jeff Daniels) on drones as Don (Thomas Sadoski) urges Will to advocate for Troy Davis.

Maggie (Alison Pill) is un-friended by her roommate, but gets the assignment she's been begging for.

Neal (Dev Patel) gets arrested on Wall Street.
