The last anyone heard from the Roys during the Succession Season 2 finale, Kendall had thrown his daddy finally proving he is the”killer” Logan never thought he could be. The Number-One Boy turned into his despair into anger and escaped from his family’s grip in a mic-drop moment. The fallout will certainly observe the Roys and Roy-adjacents, such as iconic duo Greg and Tom, in their best and messiest.
Fortunately, Season 3’s record of guest stars, which grows by the day, will be there to assist the Roys along. If nothing else, they will at least exacerbate the strain in classic Succession style. And it may not be long until audiences begin to see it all unfold on-screen: With filming underway along with a flurry of the cast and behind-the-scenes developments to get excited about, another installment of the show is shaping up after a lengthy COVID-related delay. As you count the days down, here is all you want to know concerning Succession Season 3 up to now, such as upgrades on its star-studded cast, filming, possible release date, and more.

By the end of Season 2, Kendall, performed by Jeremy Strong, seems to be more pleased with and supplied Kendall with those damning cruise documents that might be confirmation that he’s switching his allegiance from Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) into Kendall. According to HBO, the season will see”tensions rise as a sour corporate conflict threatens to turn into a household civil war.”
Last June, actor Brian Cox told ET Canada he had been given a closer look at the strategies for Season 3, which will span eight episodes instead of the normal 10. “It is extraordinary,” he said, though he could not reveal more about the patriarch’s arc. HBO isn’t offering up a lot, either, but the character descriptions of its newly announced guest stars surely hint at the plot.
Succession Season 3 Cast & Guest Stars
It’s supposed the core Succession cast will return along with its memorable supporting ensemble, but Season 3 will even welcome a very long list of fresh guest celebrities. Most recently declared was Adrien Brody, who will play with”Josh Aaronson, a billionaire activist investor that becomes critical in the struggle for the ownership of Waystar,” based on Deadline. Big Little Lies’ Alexander Skarsgård will also join the season as”Lukas Matsson a powerful, confrontational tech creator and CEO.” And Hope Davis will play Sandi Furness, daughter of Sandy Furness, who tried to shoot over Waystar Royco.

The big names aren’t just onscreen, however. According to Vulture, Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria shared a photograph from a place captioned”family time w/ the Roys,” pointing to a creative role for the acclaimed filmmaker.
Succession Season 3 Filming Status
Fantastic news! Succession was gearing in New York because of winter 2020, according to Backstage. You may have already spotted a number of the videos and photos of Strong strutting downtown streets, as he does. Justine Lupe, who performs Willa, shared a behind-the-scenes snap of herself and co-stars Sarah Snook (Siobhan) and Zoe Winters (Kerry). They’re donning masks and face shields in the candid, but none of their gear looks silk or particularly Roy-esque, so maybe Season 3 won’t tackle COVID in-universe.
Succession Season 3 Trailer & Release Date
Based on Casey Bloys, the chief content officer at HBO and HBO Max, a fourth-quarter premiere for Succession Season 3 could be possible, save for any severe COVID delays.
Though no trailer was released yet, previous seasons could provide an overall guide to the production timeline. Season 2 dropped its very first teaser in May 2019 and established that August by now we view Season 3 articles, it’s very likely that the show will not be far behind. But perhaps in light of this very long Succession drought, HBO will let’s have an earlier peek as a treat.
Meanwhile, the cast’s most social accounts offer you the occasional glimpse into Season 3. Braun, for instance, posted a photo on Instagram of him suited up and standing facing the Waystar Royco construction. Channeling Greg, he wrote, “I am an employee of the company, and that is about all I can say about that!”
