Succession season 3 will be brief on the normal amount of episodes along the premiere of this new season may be pushed back as a result of the coronavirus production shutdown.
Based on TV Guide, the HBO managers aren’t keen to resume filming Succession season 3 unless it is secure and wholesome for the crew and cast. Cast member Matthew MacFayden, however, believes that they’ll be back to perform from the fall.
MacFayden said in an interview with Digital Spy the crew and cast were initially set to kick off production in April. On the other hand, the schedules kept changing week after week as the government limitations also changed.
Changes And Surprises Up Ahead
But it is not merely the production schedule that’s changing in the upcoming installation. According to celebrity Brian Cox, Succession season, 3 could be a couple of episodes fewer compared to the first two seasons.
It is unclear when cutting the incident count is the direct result of the coronavirus shutdown. But while the episodes may be fewer, Succession period 3 will expand because of its third year concerning location and budget. After all, the Roy family owns a giant media conglomerate, and it would be realistic to see them have more international business dealings.
Cox said that his character, Logan Roy, will continue to feud with his son, Kendal Roy (Jeremy Strong), bringing additional fireworks for the third season. But viewers should also be on the lookout for Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin), Logan’s other son because he will also have a few tricks up his sleeve.
Stunning 18 Emmy nominations
Incidentally, Succession received a total of 18 nominations at the Emmy Awards. No one, however, is more surprised than Nicholas Braun (cousin Greg), who made his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series along with co-stars Culkin and McFadyen.
Discussing with E! Braun said he kept saying, “You’re kidding me!” When his publicist advised him of the nomination. He explained he never expected”award stuff” to occur in his profession. People were congratulating him, but he believed it was due to this show’s numerous nominations. Braun did not realize that his title was about the Supporting Actor category until his publicist’s call.
Also nominated are Cox and Powerful to Lead Actors and Sarah Snook (Shiv Roy) for Supporting Actress. Succession can be up for Best Drama series, however, Cox said the best episodes are yet to come.
“It is jolly exciting, that is all I can say and it’s very, very surprising what is going to occur,” the actor said.
