‘Succession’ is an American satirical drama TV series created by Jesse Armstrong. It premiered on June 3rd, 2018, on HBO and has been renewed for a Succession season 3 which is set to release on October 17th, 2021, on HBO.

Succession Season 3 Trailer
Seasons 1 and 2 of ‘Succession’ had 10 episodes each and season 3 is expected to have 10 episodes too.
The trailer launch a few days ago left fans eagerly waiting for the season to release. It introduced Adrien Brody’s Josh Aaronson and Alexander Skarsgard’s Lukas Matsson to us who both seem to be extremely powerful and exciting characters.
Set to premiere next month on HBO, the show will pick up where it left off with the Roy family’s unending drama after Kendall fired his tyrannical father Logan Roy in the season 2 finale.
The teaser footage is full of the show’s usual dark humor, sweeping New York City sceneries, and media frenzies.
Shiv Roy, Cousin Greg, Tom Wambsgans, Gerri Kellman, and Connor Roy made their presence felt in the trailer as well.
Succession Season 3 Hints
Jeremy Strong, who plays Kendall Roy, has also teased fans with what’s new for his character next season. We can expect season 3 to be more “expansive and empowered”.
The question is, will it just be Kendall feeling empowered, or those who want to take him down too…?
The details are still under so as not to spoil it for fans but it’s pretty evident the Roys have gone into full-on war mode.
Brian Cox who plays patriarch Logan on-screen revealed that the new scripts are filled with killer plot twists and cliffhangers and packs a hard punch!
Setting For Season 3
Besides that, the filming locations and settings are also going to be beautiful and extremely aesthetically pleasing this season which will hopefully balance out all the drama and intensity!
One of the main locations in the iconic Plaza hotel in New York City.
