The Circus (Minus Mark Halperin) Will Continue With CBS News’s Alex Wagner

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:

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.
