PHILIPPINES, 22 AUGUST 2019 – HBO has renewed the drama series SUCCESSION for a third season, it was announced today by Francesca Orsi, EVP, HBO Programming.
“We are elated that SUCCESSION and its exploration of wealth, power and family has resonated so powerfully with audiences,” says Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Drama Programming. “We cannot wait to see how the complex characters that Jesse Armstrong has created continue to navigate this captivating, ruthless world of the uber-rich. In today’s world where the intersection of politics and media is increasingly prevalent, SUCCESSION presents an especially piercing look behind the curtain of this elite, influential, and cutthroat community.”
Created by Emmy®, Oscar® and WGA nominee Jesse Armstrong (“In the Loop”), SUCCESSION kicked off its ten-episode second season on 12 August and is currently debuting new episodes the same time as the U.S. every Monday at 9am exclusively on HBO with a same day encore at 10pm. Beginning where season one dramatically left off, season two follows the Roy family as they struggle to retain control of their empire, and while the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them.
The second season of SUCCESSION continues to track ahead of season one’s performance, with the season two debut delivering a series high across HBO’s platforms on its debut night.
SUCCESSION has been nominated for five Primetime Emmy® awards, including Outstanding Drama Series.
Hollywood Reporter hails season two of SUCCESSION as “one of television’s best dramas… a searing, funny and painfully true look at wealth, power and family,” while IndieWire calls it “an absurd amount of fun” and “a delectable feast all its own.” Vanity Fair praises season two as “even more relevant,” and a “timely, incisive probing of extreme wealth, and the control it has over our world.”
The season two cast includes Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Peter Friedman, Rob Yang, J. Smith Cameron, Dagmara Dominczyk and Arian Moayed. Holly Hunter, Cherry Jones, Danny Huston, Jeannie Berlin and Fisher Stevens join the cast for season two. Returning guest stars include James Cromwell and Harriet Walter.
