The business world is full of cutthroat competition, stabbings in the back, excess money and bloated selfishness. But when it’s all in the same family, things can get along Really Ugly. it happens succession, the Emmy Award-winning HBO series about the wealthy Roy family and patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) struggles to leave the media empire he had built and find a capable successor to take over the reins. They have four grown children, each with their own strengths (and breathtaking weaknesses). But in Logan’s eyes, none of that really deserves his company, Vestar Royco.
The second season left Jaws on the floor. Just when it looked like the chance for eldest son Kendall (Jeremy Strong) to steer a ship—or any ship at all—was over, he threw his domineering and ruthless loving father into a giant, life-changing curveball. threw away. A slight smile and a look of admiration on Logan’s face in the final moments, however, proved just how cunning and calculating the billionaire is: Logan watching the world barrel through the company’s massive cover-up and criminal-related legal troubles. Would have been the verbs. Still, he is finally proud of his son for having the courage to stand up to him, even if it means stabbing him in the back—and wielding the knife a few times.
“There he is, the little guy who started this big war,” says Siobhan “Shiva” Roy (Sarah Snook), as she addresses her brother Kendall in a scene from the newly released trailer. As the trailer progresses into its short two minutes, the characters become increasingly unruly. There’s a war going on. And each member of the family will do whatever is necessary to advance their own interests and positions of power. Whether it comes back to daddy’s side or cuts him on his knees.
The deliciously scandalous drama adds several notable characters to the new season, with Adrien Brody in a guest-starring role as billionaire activist Josh Aaronson and Alexander Skarsgard as tech founder and CEO Lukas Matson, both of which can be seen in the trailer. . “I thought my family was f**ked up,” Brody’s character says, “but this is next level.”
With rebellious and often unpredictable son Kendall in the spotlight, no one can tell what he’ll do, though it’s sure to start a fire. “There’s blood in the water,” Logan says, an interesting choice of words that hints at his own family, “and the sharks are coming.”
One thing’s for sure: Logan will never go down without a fight. Kendall has a newfound confidence, but he also has a tendency to make rash decisions and is constantly battling his own personal demons. Shiva is forever disappointed to be overlooked and pushed aside, while Roman (the brilliant Kieran Culkin) desperately needs to prove his mettle. Meanwhile, the flaky Connor (Alan Ruck), seizing the opportunity to return to his father’s side, seeks to be in the spotlight. The sides seem to be taken, and lines are drawn in the sand. Besides, who knows what tricks timid cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) and power-hungry Tom (Matthew McFadden), Shiva’s husband, might have up their sleeves.
succession Season 3 will be an all-out family war as Roy will not only fight against political, legal and moral forces but also against each other. However, amidst all the family drama, Vestar Royco is already struggling to keep up with the rapidly changing world. Add rising legal troubles to the equation and there may be no family business to save for.
There’s a war going on and, if the trailer is any indication, it’s going to be a seriously bumpy ride.
