Grab your deck shoes and tune in to Nicholas Britell. HBO’s succession return for a 3rd season.
“We’re thrilled that Succession with its explorations of wealth, family and power has resonated so strongly” Francesca Orsi was the executive vice president for HBO drama programming in 2019, a statement she made just two weeks after the show’s debut.
Following the Emmy-nominated Season 2 with its shocking finale, what is next for Waystar Royco’s family and Waystar Royco? According to HBO, the father-son war is taking place between Logan Roy, Logan Roy, and Kendall Roy. “Ambushed at the end of Season 2, Logan Roy enters Season 3 in perilous circumstances,” the official synopsis says. Tensions rise when a bitter corporate fight threatens to spiral into a family civil battle.
This is what we know so far.
The new season could air in late 2021.
Casey Bloys – chief content officer of HBO and HBO Max – stated that in a “normal universe”, they would aim to release the fourth quarter this year. “But that would be mean we don’t get hit with any covid delays,” he stated. “A lot will depend upon how the vaccine rolls out, and how significant COVID is. Although the vaccine is still in production, it is likely to become less difficult to handle. It’s hard for us to know right now.
Season 2 finale of Succession left fans stunned. Logan turned on Kendall, the sincere son who wants to please his father. Instead of blaming a huge coverup scandal about crimes committed aboard cruise ships for the company, he reveals documents provided by Greg to prove that his father is the evil mastermind behind every detail. Logan gives his son an uncharacteristic smirk before season 2 begins.
Kendall has now betrayed Logan, and he may soon be taken out of his father’s favor. This means that Shiv could take ownership of the company. Kieran Culkin suggested that Season 3 might see Roman, an actor who plays Logan. Shiv’s and Kendall’s spotlights have been given to Roman. What does this signify? What happens to Roman, Kendall, or Shiv? The third season will show us Logan’s fate now that his dark actions are public. Will he be held responsible for the consequences? Or will his influence and power allow him to get away with wrongdoings?
