We’ll Be Seeing More Of The Roy Family As HBO Renews Succession
After a few COVID-19, related delays, Succession kicked off its third season on October 17. The fireworks and fallout from the show's second season launched the show into record-breaking viewership with over 1.4 million viewers across all platforms and the best premiere night since the launch of HBO Max.
Season three finds Logan in a perilous position, scrambling to secure familial, political, and financial alliances after he was ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall. After Kendall's impulsive decision to expose the company's sprawling scandal, the family is left to each contemplate their future. Tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war, with the Roy family navigating the looming question of who will take over in a post-Logan world.
The massive success of the season three premiere and its numerous awards, including seven Emmys including Outstanding Drama Series for season two, made a season four renewal a no-brainer for HBO. Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, announced the season four renewal earlier today.
“With each season of SUCCESSION, Jesse Armstrong has continued to surpass our wildest expectations, pulling us deeper into the Roy family’s inner sanctum with indelible wit, humanity, and precision,”
“This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead.”
The season three cast includes Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Peter Friedman, J. Smith-Cameron, Dagmara Dominczyk, Justine Lupe, David Rasche, Fisher Stevens, Hiam Abbass, Arian Moayed, Harriet Walter, James Cromwell, Natalie Gold, Juliana Canfield, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Zoë Winters and Jeannie Berlin returning. Additional cast includes Alexander Skarsgård, Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, Jihae, Adrien Brody, Hope Davis, and Dasha Nekrasova.
Succession airs Sunday nights at 9:00 PM ET/PT on HBO and can also be watched on HBO Max.
