At last, we know when Succession season 3 is coming to UK screens

Fans of Succession, rejoice. We’ll get to watch the drama of season three unfold sooner than you might think.

Ever since the last episode of Succession ended on *that* iconic cliffhanger, fans have been impatiently waiting for the third season to land on our screens. 

But now we finally know when the high-drama series will be back on our screens in the UK: from 2am on 18 October.

Thanks to the pandemic, filming had been delayed, but luckily we don’t have to wait long – and from the teaser trailer, we already know to expect some high drama as the story keeps unfolding.

“Make your move,” the promotional poster dares, but who will come out on top of the power struggle? We can’t wait to find out. 

Watch the trailer for Succession season 3

As you can see, there’s plenty of swearing, dark comedy and big egos – everything we come to Succession for. Here’s everything we know about the new series so far…

Originally reported 5 May 2021:

It’s just been confirmed by Variety that Alexandar Skarsgård (True Blood, Big Little Lies) has joined the Succession cast as a “confrontational” new character in season three.

Before we take a closer look at Skarsgård’s new role, let’s remind ourselves of what happened in season two and what we’re expecting to find answers to next.

What happened in Succession season 2?

The Primetime Emmy Award-winning series of course follows the story of media mogul Logan Roy and his children – one of which will be his eventual successor – Kendall, Shiv, Roman and Connor. 

In the end scene of season two, Kendall made a completely unexpected stand against his controlling and corrupt father at a press conference. Instead of taking for fall for the company’s cruise ship scandal, Kendall accused Logan of having knowledge of the cover-ups, insisting his “reign” as company leader was at its “end”.

What will happen in Succession season 3?

The third season is expected to pick up exactly where things were left, in the moments following Kendall’s televised statement. 

Variety reports: “Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall at the end of season two, Logan Roy begins season 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.”

Who will Alexandar Skarsgård play in Succession?

We of course know Skarsgård for playing some truly dark characters: Eric Northman the vampire in True Blood and abusive husband Perry Wright in Big Little Lies.

In Succession, he will play Lukas Matsson, who is described as a “successful, confrontational tech founder and CEO”. We get the feeling that this means he’s not exactly going to be Mr Nice Guy.

When will Succession season 3 be released?

Succession season three returns to Sky Atlantic and NOW from 2am on 18 October. Seasons one and two are available to catch up now on Sky On-Demand and NOW.
