The HBO drama "The Newsroom" returns July 14th, but the first trailer for Season 2 of the show created by Aaron Sorkin hit YouTube on Sunday and teases some major problems for the "News Night" crew.

Highlights from the trailer include:

- Neal (Dev Patel) tipping off "News Night" executive producer MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) about Occupy Wall Street, which he calls America's version of Arab Spring.

- More relationship drama between Jim Harper (John Gallagher Jr.), Maggie Jordan (Alison Pill), Don Keefer (Thomas Sadoski) and Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn). Jim even volunteers to go to New Hampshire to cover a story on Mitt Romney just to get away from everything.

- The return of gossip columnist Nina Howard (Hope Davis).

- A nude photo scandal involving Sloan.

- A story that "makes careers and ends presidencies."
