Late last year Showtime said if they proceeded with another season of political doc The Circus, Mark Halperin would not be involved. Well, they are, and a female journalist has been brought on instead.
CBS News anchor Alex Wagner is joining John Heilemann and Mark McKinnon on the political series.
Wagner, formerly of MSNBC, announced the big news on Twitter today:
Very exciting news: I’m joining The Circus on @Showtime (!!!) Will be under the big tent of American politics with my buds @jheil & @mmckinnon (and still holding it down on @CBSNews and @TheAtlantic ) WHO NEEDS SLEEP? Let’s do this thing pic.twitter.com/sYWD5Np56U

Showtime announced The Circus would not go forward with Halperin after a number of women accused him of sexual harassment from when he worked at ABC News.
The Circus returns in April.
