The void we have been abandoned in since the season 2 finale of HBO’s Succession feels almost as devastating as Greg and Tom’s enormous break up nearly. Thankfully, we are going to be seeing our favorite dysfunctional family in the 2020 Emmy Awards (and finally get some well-deserved recognition).
But despite getting a fast Roy to mend, we are definitely jonesing for more. So, that leads us into the thousand well, in this household’s case, billion-dollar query:
Succession was definitely revived for a third season (and had been scheduled to release it this fall), put postponed production on account of the coronavirus outbreak in March. HBO had said that writers were continuing to compose liberally” where possible,” but unfortunately, in this article’s publication, the series hasn’t yet resumed production.
In July, however, star Matthew Macfadyen (who performs Tom) told The Hollywood Reporter the next season is expected to begin production this autumn in New York, but that is subject to change depending on the way COVID-19 develops in the coming months. Most recently, Succession showrunner and creator Jesse Armstrong told Variety that the team is planning to start filming up again in New York before Christmas 2020. “Who knows if that’ll come about, but that is the strategy at the moment,” he said.
Kieran Culkin (who performs Roman Roy), likely put it best: “The loose plan would be to start shooting in late October, but who the fuck knows?”
The fantastic thing is that everything is to come will probably include a lot more of those things fans love about Succession, including, as Brian Cox (who plays Logan Roy) put it, “fireworks” between ruthless patriarch Logan and his son Kendall Roy. And there could be more of a focus on the youngest Roy, Roman, this year since Season 1 largely concentrated on Kendall, and Season 2 roughly Shiv Roy. “Perhaps next year is Roman’s turn,” Culkin informed Vulture last fall.
Some enthusiasts might also be relieved to know that it does not seem like Succession will take care of the coronavirus, much like other dramas who have picked back up production have said. Sara Snook (Shiv Roy) lately told Variety that when Armstrong does include it, he”wants to be delicate about it and only classy,” but nothing” that’s so overt that’s going to really handle it head-on because that’s not the show.”
“we would like to observe the Roys doing exactly the thing that they’ve been doing this we adore, not pivoting towards a pandemic story,” Snook continued.
It makes sense. We probably couldn’t take any more play than we already have between the Roy family and the executives in Waystar Royco. But we’re ready and that’s the cast. Cox stated that Armstrong disclosed the plans for the upcoming season, and even he’s on the edge of the seat. “It is jolly exciting, that is all I can say and it’s very, very surprising what’s going to happen.”
