“We are elated that Succession and its exploration of wealth, power and family has resonated so powerfully with audiences,” HBO drama programming executive vp Francesca Orsi said when the show was renewed for a third season.
“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.”
