A drama series that just started its second season has been picked up for a third. HBO announced the renewal Tuesday for “Succession,” which had its season two premiere Aug. 11.
The comedic drama, which focuses on a family-owned media empire, stars Hiam Abbass, Nicholas Braun, Brian Cox and Kieran Culkin.
Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Drama Programming, commented in the announcement: “We are elated that ‘Succession’ and its exploration of wealth, power and family has resonated so powerfully with audiences. 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.”
