Adam McKay was the Succession executive producer on November 8, 2016. His election night party went sour and he famously said to his cast: “Well, it’s making the right show.”
Succession made a difficult task of taking the Murdochs as its loose inspiration. In post-Trump America, where politics (and the media) are again front-and-center, the show was trying to accurately reflect the zeitgeist. A miss would mean that it would look completely out of touch.
The show’s second season is already a success. Succession’s motley, Machiavellian cast, which includes potential Roy heirs and their associates, has grown to be one of television’s greatest ensemble casts. The critics agree: succession is great.
HBO may think so. After two episodes of its previous season were aired, the premium cable channel authorized a third series. Succession fans couldn’t agree more. Here’s the latest information on the third season.
Succession Season 3 Release Date
Season 1 of Succession was released in 2018, with season 2 following suit in 2019. The series was also officially renewed in 2019 for the 3rd season. Unfortunately, Season 3’s premiere date has been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. WarnerMedia Entertainment shut down all its productions.
HBO has confirmed that Succession will air its third season sometime in the Fall of 2021. We don’t know when the release date will take place, but we expect it to be between late September and mid-October.
Season 3 production began in fall 2020. It ended in spring 2021. Now, all that is left to do is post-filming editing, as well as finishing touches. Our beloved political family will soon be back on screens to present another stunning season.
What Happened In Season 3?
As of the end, the conglomerate was declining. This was due in part to several factors. The dodgy dealings at Tom’s theme park and cruise division are the most notable. It was not an easy decision. Unexpectedly, something happened toward the end. Season 2 ended with Kendall’s shocking announcement. Logan is Logan’s child. Kenny was alleged to be vengeful by the former. It was to regain control of the business. Roman was elected COO. These small revelations are bound to make huge changes. This is why the next season should answer these questions. It is sure to be fun. The new season is more exciting. More twists turns.
Alexander Skarsgard and Adrien Brody are joining the cast.
Skarsgard, well-known for True Blood or Big Little Lies, will join Succession with a recurring role. Skarsgard plays Lukas, “a confrontational, and successful tech founder” and CEO. “
