If you haven’t been following the news, it may seem like Succession Season 3 is coming out of nowhere. In this blog post, we’ll explore everything to know about the show so far: when it premieres, what’s in store for characters and cast members, and more!
Succession Season 3: What are some characters in a new season?
Luckily, we do know which cast members will be returning – and who’ll be joining them – for Succession season 3.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, most of the show’s actors successfully nabbed a pay bump to $300K-350K per episode before filming began, which gives us a good idea of who’ll be reprising their roles in the new season. Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, and Alan Ruck are among those who negotiated a pay rise, so expect all the Roy family mainstays to make a return for the new episodes.
Matthew Macfayden and Nicholas Braun are also mentioned in the article, so we anticipate seeing Tom Wambsgans and Cousin Greg again, too.
Succession Season 3: about what?
Succession Season is a show that focuses on the Roy family, which owns and manages a global media conglomerate. The company was started by Logan Roy Sr., who acquires an old video game manufacturer in 1980. His son, Logan Jr., takes over and runs it for 20 years before he dies of cancer at age 49. This means his four children – Kendall (30), Roman (28), Siobhan (26), and Connor (24) are now left to decide how they want to run the company moving forward into the next generation
Connor is bored with working as a lawyer under eccentric billionaire Robert Lipton’s tutelage; Siobhan has been climbing her way up through management ranks but may be ready for more responsibility; Kendall has been a star of his dad’s company but wants to strike out on his own; Roman is unhappy with the family business and might be interested in working for someone else.
The series follows these four children as they play their part in shaping the next generation of Roy leadership.
What is the plot of Succession Season 3?
Succession follows five members of an American global business dynasty and their families as they live large while juggling politics, sex, power, and that old albatross – money.
It stars Brian Cox (The Bourne Ultimatum), Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People), Jeremy Strong (Dallas Buyers Club), Kieran Culkin (Mysterious Skin), Sarah Snook (Doctor Who).
Things are looking good for the return of the Roys in 2021. A fact first teased by an HBO Max trailer, which includes Succession among the shows set to air before 2022. It was then confirmed by HBO’s chief content officer, Casey Bloys, who told Deadline that so long as we get something like a “normal world,” Succession season 3 will return in Q4 of 2021.
“But that would mean we don’t get hit with any Covid delays,” he said. “A lot of that will depend on how the vaccine rolls out, how much a factor Covid is. It’s still very much a real thing in production at the moment. Hopefully, it gets easier to deal with. It’s hard to predict right now.”
It’s also worth considering how much of the show might need to be shot abroad, and the restrictions that would then come into place with quarantining as vaccines are rolled out. Season two took us to Dundee, Scotland, and Korčula, Croatia, for dramatic backdrops to the mounting drama, but it sounds like Succession season 3 might stay closer to home. In fact, Bloys also revealed that the original plan was to shoot the show in Los Angeles.
“At one point, we thought we should shoot Succession in Los Angeles because Los Angeles looked like, at the time, a safer place to shoot than New York, then Los Angles looked really bad, and New York looked better in comparison,” he said.
Succession season three will most likely arrive too late to get a look at 2021.
