Hold your No. 1 boy close. The Roy family is not going anywhere.
HBO on Tuesday issued a much-expected renewal for breakout Succession, ordering a third season of the Jesse Armstrong drama that is expected to air sometime in 2020.
Succession only returned to the air two weeks ago, but solid audience retention and continued critical affection have helped make it one of HBO’s more high-profile originals in the post-Game of Thrones era. The first season is up for five awards at the 2019 Primetime Emmys, including outstanding drama series.
“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 in a statement. “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.”
