The HBO drama Succession, set in big-city America, follows billionaire Logan Roy as he pits his kids against each other with a view to choosing his business empire’s successor.
For two whole series now, we have been glued to the thrilling family drama, from season one’s slow-burning ancestral wars to last week’s season two finale’s new legal disaster.
The only thing more exciting than the most recent plot and the storyline is the curiosity of what could happen in the third season.
Below is everything that you can get to know so far:
Succession Season 3: Release Date
We likely will have a bit of a wait, as the shooting of Succession still is happening. Before the pandemic, originally, the plans were to begin firing in April, and then things clearly went against it.
The creator of the show, Jesse Armstrong, said that for him, given all the breaks of the year, it was not that productive. We are allowing the job growth to cover the acres of time we have unexpectedly identified,” he told.
“I’m probably making no more progress than if I’d had six weeks instead of the six months that we’ve had. Don’t beat yourself up, Jesse – it was an achievement for us if we even made it up from the sofa to make a sandwich for lunch, honestly.” He added.
We expect Season 3 could be prepared to screen around late spring/early summer in 2021, focusing on how shooting progresses.
We’ve thankfully got most of the main characters coming back, the main cast:
- Brian Cox
- Hiam Abbass
- Jeremy Strong
- Kieran Culkin
- Sarah Snook
- Nicholas Braun
- Alan Ruck
- J. Smith-Cameron
- Matthew Macfadyen
Three minor characters, for now, have been confirmed as series regulars. These characters are:
- Failed playwright Willa Ferreyra (played by Justine Lupe)
- Waystar Royco’s senior comms exec, Fisher Stevens (Hugo Baker)
- Shady chief financial officer Karl Muller (David Rasche)
Total Number Of Seasons For Succession:
We only can tell with confidence at the present that there would be three full-length Succession seasons. Nevertheless, despite a complete fall off in viewer scores, it’s fair to say that we’ll be here for the Roys for at least a few more seasons.
Apparent heir Kendall Roy, supported by faithful cousin Greg, tore up his written speech and uncovered a decades-long cover-up live on national TV. The legacy of his father was left in total disarray.
But then what? Will he be able to feel the wrath of Logan, or is this just the evidence that Chairman Roy wants to eventually name his successor? You’re going to need to wait and see.
