Showtime Lines Up Season Three Return of The Circus


Next month, Showtime is due to debut nine additional episodes of the U.S. political documentary series The Circus.

Presented by John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon and Alex Wagner, The Circus premiered the first part of its third installment earlier this year. New episodes will begin airing on Sunday, September 16, at 8 p.m. in the run-up to the American mid-term elections, which will determine control of Congress and impact the remainder of the Trump presidency.

The Circus is produced by Red Arrow Studios’ Left/Right for Showtime. Heilemann, McKinnon, Wagner, Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman serve as executive producers on the show.
