'Succession' Season 3: Release date, spoilers cast and all about the HBO media drama

HBO's 'Succession' will return for another season. The blockbuster media drama is one of the more anticipated shows in October and is all set to take the Logan Roy story forward. And considering that it releases post the pandemic, it is possible the season will have a COVID-19 storyline. The latest season will have nine episodes and just might have another season or two in the offing before calling it a day.


While we wait for the critically acclaimed drama's third run, here are some of the titles that are worth a shot: 'Euphoria', 'Chernobyl' and 'Game of Thrones'.

Release date and where to watch

'Succession' premieres October 17 on HBO. 


Logan Roy and his children Connor, Kendall, Siobhan aka Shiv and Roman try to reinvent their father's media conglomerate, Waystar Royco, to survive the slump the company has gotten into after the introduction of new media. With the new technology influencing the way media works, Waystar Royco is left far behind and the show portrays the lives of the Roy family as they do everything possible to stay on top. 


The second season shows us how Logan Roy, the founder of Waystar Royco, returns from the depths of a financial crisis as technological changes upturn media conglomerates. He manipulates his children Kendall, Shiv, and Roman 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."



The main cast members of the show will essentially remain the same. Brian Cox returns as Roman Roy, Alan Ruck as Connor Roy, Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, Sarah Snook as Siobhan "Shiv" Roy, Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans and Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch.

Jesse Armstrong serves as the creator of the show and has worked on the Channel 4 comedy 'Peep Show'. The British writer is also known for the political satire 'The Thick of It'.


The clip shows the Roy family in the chaotic aftermath of Kendall's explosive press conference. Meanwhile, Shiv is trapped between siding with her brother or her dad, and Tom and Greg are up to their usual tomfoolery. Here's a look at the trailer.
