HBO drama series Succession renewed for season 3
HBO’s drama series Succession has been renewed for Season 3 and will likely air sometime next year, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Beginning where season one dramatically left off, season two follows the Roy family as they struggle to retain control of their empire, and while the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them.
“We are elated that Succession and its exploration of wealth, power and family has resonated so powerfully with audiences,” said HBO’s Francesca Orsi. “We cannot wait to see how the complex characters that Jesse Armstrong has created continue to navigate this captivating, ruthless world of the uber-rich. In today’s world where the intersection of politics and media is increasingly prevalent, Succession presents an especially piercing look behind the curtain of this elite, influential, and cutthroat community.”
The series stars Brian Cox as patriarch Logan Roy, along with Alan Ruck (Spin City) as Connor Roy, Jeremy Strong (Zero Dark Thirty) as Kendall Roy, Kieran Culkin (Igby Goes Down) as Roman Roy, Sarah Snook (Sisters of War) as Shiv Roy, Hiam Abbass as Marcy Roy, Peter Friedman as Frank Vernon, Natalie Gold (Rubicon) as Rava Roy, Matthew Macfadyen (Spooks) as Tom Wamsgans, Parker Sawyers (Southside With You) as Alessandro Daniels, and Nicholas Braun (Sky High) as Cousin Greg.
The show is created by Academy Award nominee Jesse Armstrong, who also serves as its showrunner. Succession launched its ten-episode first season in 2018 with the pilot directed by Oscar winner Adam McKay from a script written by Armstrong. It is executive produced by Armstrong, McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Will Ferrell, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod and Tony Roche.
Season 2 of the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series is currently airing new episodes every Sunday night and is available on all of HBO’s platforms.
