After the explosive final moments of Succession's second season, which saw Kendall (Jeremy Strong) proving that Logan Roy (Brian Cox) wasn't the only "killer" in the family, fans have been eagerly waiting to find out where the HBO drama will go from there. The many memes and the many Emmy wins just aren't enough to hold everyone over.

HBO has also released a Season 3 logline to set up the upcoming season; "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."

There's still no word about a premiere date from HBO, but tidbits about guest castings are coming out and we're here to supply you with all the information we have about what to expect as the series continues. Read on to find out everything we know about HBO's Succession Season 3 so far.

Latest News

Adrien Brody is also joining the show as Josh Aaronson, a billionaire activist who gets involved in the family's internal warring and becomes "pivotal in the battle for Waystar," according to multiple reports. 

Premiere Date

Production on Season 3 is now underway. HBO hasn't made an official premiere date announcement yet. What we do know is that Season 3 could possibly have a smaller episode count than the first two. While Seasons 1 and 2 ran for 10 episodes apiece, Cox told The New York Times in July 2020 that the number of episodes "could be eight, it could be nine. We're in that ballpark."


While all the Roys and Roy-adjacents (looking at you, Tom) are set to return for Season 3, expect to see a whole host of new faces hanging around and (probably) causing trouble. It was announced in January that Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, Jihae, and Hope Davis are all set to join the cast in recurring roles.

Lathan will play Lisa Arthur, a high-profile and well-connected lawyer in New York. Emond plays Michelle-Anne Vanderhoven, a White House staffer, and Jihae will play Berry Schneider, a public relations consultant. Davis will play Sandi Furness, daughter to Logan's longtime rival, Sandy Furness (Larry Pine).

Alexander Skarsgård is joining the cast in Season 3. He has a recurring guest role as Lukas Matsson, a confrontational CEO and tech founder who gets in bed with the Roys. 

Also, Justine Lupe, David Rasche, and Fisher Stevens, who have all appeared in recurring roles up until now, have been bumped up to series regulars for the third season.

Where to Watch

Succession Seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on HBO Max.
