Succession season 2 teaser reveals August premiere
HBO has released the new teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of their drama series Succession, giving us a glimpse of what to expect in the new season. Starring Emmy Award-winning actor Brian Cox (Nuremberg, Frasier), the series is scheduled to return in August, exclusively on HBO. Check out the video below.
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.
Succession follows the story of the Roy family – Logan Roy (Cox) and his four children – who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. The series tracks their lives as they contemplate what the future will hold for them once their aging father begins to step back from the company.
The series also stars Nicholas Braun (Sky High) as Greg Hirsch Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, 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, and Parker Sawyers (Southside With You) as Alessandro Daniels.
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.
