Succession season 3 trailers

With just a month to go, HBO released the trailer that provided the first look at Skarsgard and Brody, as well as dozens of signature barbs. Logan grins, "This life isn't for everyone." "It's a number on tracing paper. "It's a fight for slash in the mud!"

In July, HBO released a first teaser trailer, which gave snark on where the Roy family will go next. Kendall's next-level betrayal of his father is intensified in the new season, as the two confront a fierce rivalry. "He's our dad, but he was going to send me to jail," said the father. Tom, "That sounds, like, kind of dramatic." "Are you a member of this family or not?" Nelly, "Woah, Nellie!"

Succession season 3 plot for season 3.

Kendall revealed to the world at the end of season 2 that Logan had known of the numerous wrongdoings at Waystar RoyCo. Logan lashes at his son as the battle between them intensifies in the season 3 trailer. Shiv is caught between, while Tom and Cousin Greg are involved in some sparring of their own. As the siblings recruit each other and turn on eachother in more twisted power games, lines are drawn.

The stars of the show gave a few hints during this year's Television Critics Association press tour, with Brian Cox comparing the series to Eugene O'Neill'' acclaimed play Long Day'S Journey into Night, while Jeremy Strong quoted Carl Jung.

As a tech CEO, Alexander Skarsgard of True Blood and Big Little Lies will join them, which sounds like he'll be battling with the Waystar's old-school media monolith. Adrien Brody from The Pianist and Peaky Blinders has also entered the boardroom as a billionaire investor.

There are no previous recurring stars such as Holly Hunter and Danny Huston, but there are several new faces. Sanaa Lathan from Love & Basketball, Family Guy, and Nappily Ever After as a well-connected lawyer are among them.

Linda Emond plays a White House aide, while Jihae plays an advertising consultant. Hope Davis will play Sandi Furness, the daughter of Logan Roy's long-time rival Sandy Fursten, while Ella Rumpf from the 2016 horror film Raw and Dasha Nekrasova, a writer, director, and podcaster, will also play.
