It’s good to see you back on Waystar Royco! After a lengthy absence due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans of Succession will likely watch their beloved family again on the tiny screen very soon.

The HBO show debuted in June of 2018, and starred Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, and Alan Ruck as the Roy family, who are the wealthy owners of a multinational entertainment and media conglomerate. Cox’s Logan Roy craftily manipulates his children, who all fight for more control over the company. This extended Roy family tree contains Nicholas Braun as Cousin Greg and Matthew Macfadyen as Logan’s son-in-law Tom Wambsgans.

Season 2 came to an conclusion in the month of October in 2019 and kept viewers guessing who would ultimately be his right-hand person to Logan. “I have no idea who would be the final successor,” Snook said to Entertainment Weekly at the time. “But I imagine that, whoever is, probably wouldn’t hold on to it for very long.”

The show became an instant success with both the public and critics as well, which led to Cox winning an award at the 2019 Golden Globe for Best Actor in an Television Series Drama and Strong being named Outstanding Lead Actor in the drama Series in the 2020 Emmy Awards. The show’s director Jesse Armstrong took home the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for Drama Series.

Before returning to the sketchboard for season 3. Armstrong said to Vulture, “I have a bunch of research and a bunch of thoughts about what should happen” in the event that the feud between the family members heats up. Although a lot of the storylines appear to be remarkably like what’s happening in real life however, Armstrong explained that the writers have no intention to imitate the major situations.

“We’re in the culture just like everyone else is, and it’s a show that has a relationship to the real world,” Armstrong stated in October of 2019. “All our writers, as well as I have thoughts and feelings regarding what’s happening across our country, the U.S. and the wider world. We’re not taking news stories straight from the media and incorporating it in the show. We’re taking what we feel like it’s been around for a while and fitting it into our characters. We’re then in a great spot to stumble upon the themes of reality. These are the lucky to hit.”

Season 3’s production was put on hold because of the outbreak of coronavirus however, the crew made their way back to New York City in late 2020 and into 2021. In terms of what’s to come, Cox earlier said to Deadline that there will be “a lot of fireworks” in the next episodes, indicating that viewers should be prepared for surprises.

The Loyalty of Connor Roy Is In the Air in the The Air

Ruck stated that Connor’s desire for money is a sign that his loyalty could be to the most expensive bidder.

“At this point Connor is stock rich and land rich but cash poor,” Ruck said to Entertainment Weekly in October ahead of the season premiere. “So there’s a bit of anxiety about his finances, and at this point , it’s sort of depending on how the winds blow. It’s about, what’s the most profitable deal? I don’t believe we’re aware which side of his family he’s on from the starting of this Season. He was a father figure who was rude to him and he was a bit snarky. the character but Kendall is insane and I’m referring to an unforgiving and hard place.
