Four days ago, HBO announced the premiere date for the third season of Succession. Now, as part of the novelties in relation to the series, perhaps one of the most anticipated in recent years, the production company published the trailer about this new season. The confirmation of the premiere day, scheduled for October 17 of this year, occurred through the company’s profile on Twitter, while the release of the trailer was made through its profile on YouTube.
HBO, which are within the various Warner Media companies, will make the third season of Succession available through the various platforms they currently offer. That, of course, includes HBO Max, released a few months ago in Latin America and soon to hit Europe. The series is part of those proposals aimed at attracting subscribers through original productions.
The first episode of Succession aired on June 3, 2018. A year later, on August 11, 2019, the second season arrived. Since then, it had not been clear a release date for the third, until HBO confirmed that it would be next October 17 when more would be known about the drama starring Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
The Succession Trailer
What is the context in which this season will begin? As specialist Ebenizer Pinedo recalls, “the second season of Succession ended with a total surprise: Kendall Roy declared war on his father. In a public event originally planned to accept the blame for the Waystar Royco scandals, the character decided to return to the fray after enduring multiple humiliations from Logan Roy. “
This framework will be key in the development of the third season of Succession. The family conflict will move different plot lines through the chapters. Total, the series will have 10 episodes. Each of them, true to HBO tradition, will be broadcast every Sunday starting October 17.
Initially, this season would be released during 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic forced HBO to readjust its calendar. Before this trailer, the company shared a teaser that shows how different family members are forced to take a position within the conflict. It remains to see how the familiar pulse leaves consequences in the rest of the story.
The third season of Succession has a cast consisting of; Brian Cox (Logan Roy), Jeremy Strong (Kendall Roy), Hiam Abbass (Marcia Roy), Sarah Snook (Shiv Roy), Kieran Culkin (Roman Roy), Alan Ruck (Connor Roy), Nicholas Braun (Greg Hirsch), Matthew Macfadyen (Tom Wamsgans), Peter Friedman (Frank Vernon) and Arian Moayed (Stewy Hosseini), Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond and Jihae Join.
