Season Seven Returns This Fall with Eight New Episodes

NEW YORK – September 23, 2022 – The Emmy® nominated docuseries THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE GREATEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH kicks off the second half of its seventh season covering the unprecedented impact of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on the midterm elections.

Hosts John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Jennifer Palmieri crisscross the country examining how the elimination of the constitutional right to abortion, the law of the land for 50 years, is energizing voters and upending elections – from the stunning vote in Kansas this summer, to the battlegrounds of Michigan and North Carolina.

Gretchen Whitmer, the Democratic governor of Michigan, on how the ruling on abortion is impacting voters in her state.
Republican Pat McCrory, former governor of North Carolina, on how abortion has shaken up the razor-tight senate race in his state.
Democrat Kathleen Sebelius, former governor of Kansas, on the political reverberations still being felt from her state’s stunning vote to preserve abortion rights this summer.

THE CIRCUS RETURNS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25





THE CIRCUS RETURNS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 AT 8 PM ET/PT ON SHOWTIME
Seventh Season of Emmy® Nominated Docuseries Returns With Eight Episodes

NEW YORK – August 22, 2022 – As the high stakes midterm election season heats up across the nation, the Emmy-nominated series THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE GREATEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH returns on Sunday, September 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. Hosts John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon, and Jennifer Palmieri hit the ground running as they track the unfolding political drama with control of Congress up for grabs, President Biden’s agenda on the line, and the future of American democracy hanging in the balance.

THE CIRCUS returns to capture the exhilarating eight-week sprint to Election Day, with Democrats and Republicans facing off in what may be the most consequential midterm election in modern history. With Biden’s approval ratings flagging amid economic headwinds, the GOP aims to seize control of both chambers of Congress and derail the administration’s agenda. But an historic legislative victory for Democrats, and signs of a potent backlash to the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe vs. Wade, could bolster the Democratic defense. And while Republican kingmaker former President Donald Trump weighs a presidential run, multiple investigations are accelerating into his role in fomenting the January 6th insurrection, attempts to overturn the 2020 election, and his handling of classified documents since leaving office. THE CIRCUS will pull back the curtain on this extraordinary and precarious moment for America.

John Heilemann is a co-founder of Recount Media and executive editor of The Recount — a start-up reinventing video news coverage of politics, business, technology and culture for social and streaming platforms — and the host of its Hell & High Water podcast.
