Margulies first joined the drama in season 2 as a former war correspondent who went on to host UBA 365. She and Bradley began a love affair that ended up hitting the skids when Bradley hid her brother’s involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol attacks.

On June 6, it was revealed that Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard is joining the show for a major arc across Season 4. She will portray Celine Dumont, a savvy operator from a storied European family.

Season 3 of The Morning Show left the fate of UBA once again up in the air after Alex (Jennifer Aniston) manages to take down Paul Marks (Jon Hamm) by log-jamming the sale of UBA to his tech company, Hyperion. But now, it appears UBA will be merging with another media company to keep the network afloat, which could spell layoffs and restructuring to come in Season 4.

Variety first reported the news about Margulies.
