Succession Season 3: HBO Shares Episodes 1-3 Overviews, Podcast Info

This Sunday, the war between Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) and Logan Roy (Brian Cox) goes "full f***ing beast" when HBO's award-winning Succession returns for a third season. And with a family civil war raging, HBO has released new key art pairing up some of our major players. With a major family war on the way, HBO has released a season overview as well as overviews for the first three episodes, offering clues as to where Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Connor (Alan Ruck), and Roman's (Kieran Culkin) lie (at least for now). And after each episode, host & journalist Kara Swisher will unpack the real-world events that echo the saga unfolding on the screen in the companion podcast for Succession Season 3. Swisher will dive into family dynamics, capitalism run amok, and power unchecked with top journalists, writers, thinkers, psychologists, and cultural critics, as well as some of the people who made the show.

The third season sees Alexander Skarsgard joining the cast as confrontational tech founder Lukas Matsson while Adrien Brody is on boards as Josh Aaronson, a billionaire activist investor who becomes pivotal in the battle for the ownership of the Waystar media empire. With the series set to return to HBO on October 17th for the third season of back-stabbing and double-dealing that you can only find in a truly "loving" family, here's a look at the official trailer for Jesse Armstrong's Succession:

Season three finds Logan in a perilous position, scrambling to secure familial, political, and financial alliances after he was ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall. After Kendall's impulsive decision to expose the company's sprawling scandal, the family is left to each contemplate their future. Tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war, with the Roy family navigating the looming question of who will take over in a post-Logan world.
