Made by Jesse Armstrong,’ Succession’ is a dark comedy satirical drama tv series that revolves around the Roy family that owns Waystar Royko. With Logan Roy’s declining health, the dysfunctional family begins to prepare for life after Logan, with every one of these fightings for prominence and control. The series first premiered on June 3, 2018, on HBO and opened into a positive reaction from the audiences in addition to critics.
Over two successful seasons, The critically acclaimed show has received many awards and nominations, including the Golden Globe Awards, Primetime Emmy Awards, and the British Academy Television Awards. Following the spin at the season two finale, fans have been patiently waiting to see where the show goes from there. Let’s dive in and see!
Succession Season 3 Release Date
‘Succession’ season 2 was released on August 11, 2019, on HBO, together with the season rounding up on October 13, 2019. The next episode includes ten episodes with a runtime of 56–66 minutes each.
In terms of the news of a third season, here is what we understand. To get a high-performing show similar to this one, it comes as no surprise that HBO greenlit the series for a third year. On August 20, 2019, the renewal statement for season 3 dropped only after the launch of this next episode of season 2. The series was still in its pre-production phase in mid-March 2020 if the entire filming industry came to a screeching halt because of COVID-19. Since that time, the production has seen several flaws, which is likely why a release date has not been declared.
Moreover, filming locations are a huge concern. The group considered moving the production from New York to LA for year 3 but decided against it since the east coast location turned out to be a much safer option than LA during the pandemic. The cameras allegedly began rolling in late January 2021 in New York. However, delays can’t be ruled out, particularly since the series also involves global filming locations. If the filming wraps up by spring, we can expect succession season 3 to release sometime in Fall 2021.

The fans have also been anxious about the show’s future because Armstrong has revealed that this isn’t one of the displays that”ought to go on forever,” though the authors still haven’t run out of ideas. This may signify that the end is near ‘Succession,’ since the question of who will be the successor needs to be answered finally.
Succession Season 3 Cast: Who Is In It?
The show centers across the Roy family. Therefore, all the principal cast members are set to return for the third round. This means we will view Brian Cox (Logan Roy), Sarah Snook (Siobhan”Shiv” Roy), Jeremy Strong (Kendall Roy), Alan Ruck (Connor Roy), and Kieran Culkin (Roman Roy) once again.

Succession Season 3 Plot: What Can It Be About?
The second time closes on an unexpected note as Kendall drops a bomb on national tv by exposing Logan and his decades-long cover-up of a sexual harassment scandal. While Roman is declared as the COO of Waystar Royko, Shiv and Tom’s marriage appears to be hitting rock bottom.
As for the third season, we can expect the usual”fireworks” between Logan and Kendall. Going ahead, the show will also check into the peculiar relationship between Roman and Gerri, while Shiv and Tom’s marital problems will also be addressed. Roman may take center stage in season 3 as he’s proved his mettle to the people.
