Succession season three will once again be helmed by Peep Show’s Jesse Armstrong.
The series, which can be either a dark play or a black satire depending upon your perspective, follows the misadventures of the Roy family.
They’re a dysfunctional crowd who spend their days stabbing each other at the trunk in a bid to become the head of their family’s international media empire when patriarch Logan Roy eventually steps down or dies at his workplace.
It appears to be based upon the Murdoch family — Armstrong previously wrote an unmade film screenplay regarding the Murdochs. However, he is not always keen on this comparison.
It’s not bullshit to state it truly isn’t that the Murdochs. “It could be a parochial opinion that because it is a media family, it has to be the Murdochs.”
And anybody who does not wish to get sued by a few of the planet’s strongest men would probably concur.
But whoever it is based on, it’s coming back for a third season, commissioned a mere two episodes to the airing of the next series.
“We cannot wait to find out how the complex personalities which Jesse Armstrong has made continue to browse this captivating, real-world world of the uber-rich,” said executive vice president of HBO play programming Francesca Orsi.
“In the world today in which the intersection of media and politics is increasingly prevalent, Succession presents an especially piercing look behind the curtain of this elite, influential, and cutthroat community”
But how will the Roys wreak havoc in the next season? Here’s what you need to know.
What’s the Succession season 3 release date?
Things are looking good for the return of the Roys in 2021. A fact first teased by an HBO Max trailer, which includes Succession one of the displays set to atmosphere before 2022. It was subsequently confirmed by HBO’s chief content creation, Casey Bloys, that provided that we get something similar to a “normal world”, Succession season 3 will reunite in Q4 of 2021.
Succession season three will most likely arrive too late to have a look at the 2021 Emmy Awards, which will be hosted in September but is voted through late June. The show won Outstanding Drama series in the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards in 2020, which introduced the third season in a row that an HBO series scooped the prize (following two wins to get Game of Thrones).
Who will be starring in Season 3?
There is no doubt that the main cast of the Succession series will return in season 3. The main cast includes Roy’s household & a couple of other vital characters on the show.
Willa Ferreyra (played by Justine Lupe), shady chief financial officer Karl Muller (David Rasche), also Waystar Royco’s senior comms exec, Fisher Stevens (Hugo Baker), are encouraged as series regulars.
Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, Jihae, Hope Davis, Dasha Nekrasova, and Alexander Skarsgard were announced as the new season 3. Adrien Brody will comprise a guest role for the third period of Succession.
