At last year’s Emmys, Succession pretty much cleaned up, bagging awards for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor, also being nominated in 18 distinct categories. Needless to say, it was really so well-deserved – Succession is fantasy TV. Made by Peep Show and Fresh Meat’s Jesse Armstrong, the series follows rich patriarch Logan Roy because he attempts to control his media empire and dysfunctional family.
So What About Succession Season3?
The third series was commissioned by HBO in August 2019 and was due to drop in 2020, however, the pandemic meant production was pushed back. And it looks like filming is to resume because a bunch of exciting new cast members has only been declared. Here’s what we know:
Who Will Star In Succession Season 3?
All the principal cast members are returning since Succession would not be half the series that it’s without the entire Logan family (and of course comedy duo Greg and Tom). That includes Brian Cox (Logan Roy), Kieran Culkin (Roman Roy), Sarah Snook (Shiv Roy), Jeremy Strong (Kendall Roy), Hiam Abbass (Marcia Roy), Nicholas Braun (Greg Hirsch), Matthew Macfadyen (Tom Wambsgans) and Alan Ruck (Connor Roy).
On May 10th, Variety reported that no one other than Adrien Brody and Alexander Skarsgård was joining up the line, which sounds
That Brody was lined up to perform guest character Josh Aaronson, called”a billionaire activist investor who becomes pivotal in the struggle for the ownership of Waystar”.
Skarsgård, meanwhile, could play Lukas Matsson, a”powerful, confrontational tech founder and CEO”, according to Variety.
Earlier this season in January, HBO announced three new cast members will be joining the series, and one of them is Korean music star Jihae who is playing with Berry Schneider, a leading PR consultant. Meanwhile, The Affair’s Sanaa Lathan will play high profile attorney Lisa Arthur and Elementary celebrity Linda Emond will play Michelle-Anne Vanderhoven, a senior White House aide.
