Let's find out what the new season has in store for us. Here is everything you need to know about 'Succession' season 3, including release date, plot, cast, and more. 

When is the Release Date of 'Succession' Season 3?

'Succession' will return for season 3 in the Autumn of 2021. The exact release date is yet to be announced. HBO Max gives us a teaser trailer that confirms the show's return this year. 

The trailer did not specify when exactly season 3 will be released, but HBO will likely give a separate announcement in the upcoming weeks. 'Succession' season 3 will be available on HBO, HBO Max, and Sky Atlantic.

What is the Plot of 'Succession Season 3?

The battle for power continues as the Roy siblings remain steadfast in taking over their father's global media and entertainment conglomerate.

At the end of season 2, Kendall revealed that Logan knew about the company's wrongdoings. Kendall exposed Logan and the company during a televised press conference, and his actions will surely impact the upcoming season.

In the teaser trailer, we see Logan lunging Kendall, who was once his favorite son. Knowing that he is in deep trouble, Kendall convinces his siblings to support him, saying their father's gonna send them all to jail anyway.

Shiv agrees, but in one condition-- her siblings should give the power to her in exchange for betraying their father.

Expect the new season to be even more intense. Brian Cox, who plays patriarch Logan, tells The Hollywood Reporter:

"I nearly fell off my chair because he [Armstrong] never tells you about the next series. We never knew from episode to episode what was going to happen. But then he told me. And it's jolly thrilling. That's all I can say."
