What happened in series two?

Before we can jump back into the Roy family drama, let's recap about what happened in series two. 

You'll be forgiven for forgetting the finer details since it was over two years ago after all. 

The show's second series ended with a confrontation between the son and rightful heir Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) and media tychoon Logan Roy.

Kendall finally stands up to his father after Logan ruthlessly tips him as the fall guy for a #MeToo scandal.

The new series opens on the same day that Kendall turns the press conference back on his mogul father.

The official syponsis for the upcoming season said: “Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall at the end of series two, Logan Roy begins series three 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.”

“Logan Roy has got classical elements, but also comedy, and he’s mysterious as well; you don’t quite know where he’s coming from.”

Who will return for series three?


We are set to be reunited with the Roy family with the programme's key charaters returning for the third series.

Brian Cox will return as the show's ruthless Scottish patriarch and Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen will be back as Kendall Roy, Skiv Roy and Tom Wambsgans.

Some other famous faces will also be joining the cast including Oscar winner and Peaky Blinders star Adrien Brody.

Brody will play the character Josh Aaronson alongside Alexander Skarsgård as Lukas Matsson.

Will there be a season four of Succession?

Brian Cox recently confirmed with Radio Times that there would be a fourth season to the media civil war drama.

Cox said: “We’re definitely doing a fourth series. It depends how long Jesse feels it can go on.

"I’ve got a feeling there’s a lot more life in it. This season opens up storylines that I feel will take two series to resolve.”

HBO and Sky Atlantic have not confirmed a release date for the show's fourth season yet and only time will tell if it will be the show's last.
