"The Circus"
Midseason Premiere Sunday, September 16 at 8 PM ET/PT on Showtime

          As the country readies for one of the most consequential midterm elections in recent history, the third season of the groundbreaking political documentary series THE CIRCUS returns with nine new episodes hosted by John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon and Alex Wagner.

          This fall, THE CIRCUS returns to its roots. The show will hit the campaign trail for the midterm elections, which will not only determine control of Congress but how the Trump presidency will play out. The series will continue to cover the impact of the administration’s policies as well as the legal and political controversies swirling around the White House. THE CIRCUS will follow multiple individual stories and key characters from the campaigns, and capture their unique perspectives in weekly half-hour shows. With intimate, behind-the-scenes access, cameras will offer viewers a look at what the public rarely sees and explore the high human drama of American politics.

 

          The spring episodes of THE CIRCUS featured Heilemann, McKinnon and Wagner reporting from Moscow, St. Petersburg, London and Washington as they covered the ongoing drama around President Trump and all things Russia. Subsequent episodes took a deep dive into the unfolding developments in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the Stormy Daniels lawsuit and the criminal probe of President Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
