Succession Sets October return

The critically acclaimed, global smash-hit drama series Succession will return for its highly anticipated third season at the same time as the U.S. in October

The award-winning drama series, whose second season won a total of seven Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, will premiere its nine-episode new season, following on from a compelling season two finale.

Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall at the end of season two, Logan Roy begins season three in a perilous position. Scrambling to secure familial, political and financial alliances, tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war.
