Succession Season 3: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, and Everything Else to Know

The Roys are almost back

We are officially only weeks away from finding out what happened after the explosive end of Succession Season 2, which found Kendall (Jeremy Strong) making everyone's jaws drop to the floor when he proved that Logan Roy (Brian Cox) wasn't the only "killer" in the family and sold the family patriarch out to a room full of press. Since the season ended in October 2019 -- a whole two years ago -- it's been a long wait to find out what's next for the Roys. Memes can only go so far. 

Fortunately, the multiple Emmy-winning drama is almost back, and HBO has released information on what we can expect. The logline for Season 3 teases, "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."

As Succession Season 3 approaches, TV Guide is compiling all the information we have on the new episodes. Read on to find out everything we know so far about Succession's return.

Premiere Date

Succession Season 3 will premiere on Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and will also stream on HBO Max. 


The Succession Season 3 teaser trailer shows that Kendall isn't backing down after throwing his father under the bus at the end of Season 2, but he still has to get his siblings on board. Shiv (Sarah Snook) is contemplating turning against the hand that has fed the family, but she wants Kendall to agree to let her take over the company if she backs his play. Does she actually have the guts to do it, or will this be yet another failed attempt at a coup for Kendall? 


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).

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. 

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.
