'Succession' Season 3 has been one of the most-anticipated shows in October and with less than a day to go before the premiere of the new season, the buzz on Twitter was all about the return of Logan Roy and his rich, dysfunctional family.

The second season shows us how Logan Roy (Brian Cox), the founder of Waystar Royco, returns from the depths of a financial crisis as technological changes upturn media conglomerates. He manipulates his children Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook), and Roman (Kieran Culkin) to fight to become the heir of the company after their father, even as he controls them and the decisions that they make. 

The official synopsis reads: "Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall at the end of Season 2, Logan Roy begins Season 3 in a perilous position. Scrambling to secure familial, political, and financial alliances, tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war."

Twitter was mighty excited. "#SuccessionHBO starts tomorrow?! But I don't have any scotch! Gimme a few more days, guys" read one of the tweets. "Late to the Succession party but we’re finally done with season 2. Season 3 starts today and we can’t wait for the war of the Roys. #SuccessionHBO," read another. "Watched last seasons finale of @succession to prepare for tomorrow’s season 3 launch - the Roy family goes to battle. A Shakespearean worthy drama. #SuccessionHBO," one of the fans remarked.

There were requests as well. "@succession can there be a scene where Brian Cox sings a cover of "Poor, Unfortunate Soul" from Little Mermaid? Like a hallucination scene with Kendall. #SuccessionHBO #Succession." Now that Netflix's 'You' Season 3 was done, it was time to move on. "Really enjoyed this season of #YOUSEASON3 Now for a whole other group of psychos with the #SuccessionHBO premier tomorrow!" a comment read.
