About Succession Season 3

Succession explores themes of power and family dynamics through the eyes of patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his four grown children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Connor (Alan Ruck). The series’ second season won a total of seven Emmys®, including Outstanding Drama Series.

Season three finds Logan in a perilous position, scrambling to secure familial, political, and financial alliances after he was ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall. After Kendall’s impulsive decision to expose the company’s sprawling scandal, the family is left to each contemplate their own future. Tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war, with the Roy family navigating the looming questions of who will take over in a post-Logan world.

Succession Season 3 Review

Succession Season 3 once again surrounds the Roy family with drama and deception. Things get pretty intense in this season, although they sort of always are when it comes to the fight of who will succeed Logan Roy as CEO of Logan Enterprises. The nine one hour long episodes are filled with ups and downs, and twists and turns, but unfortunately when it ends, it feels like fans are at the same place they have been since the first season.

Succession Season 3 review

While there is no doubt that this an incredible cast, with wonderfully chemistry and hilarious comedic timing, something can’t help but be off when it comes to Succession Season 3. The first season started with the Roy siblings all but fist fighting over who would take over for their father, and that is where they are still at by the end of season 3. That isn’t to say it hasn’t been an interesting and entertaining journey, because it has, but Succession is in need of some desperate development if it wants to continue to be so successful.

Succession Season 3 review

There is a massive cliffhanger ending, just like the two seasons before it, which will hopefully lead to a change in the story telling. The Roy children are all but left high and dry at the end of Succession Season 3, which could potentially set up for new and interesting things occurring in season 4. Still, for those who have thoroughly enjoyed this show so far, Season 3 remains completely on brand. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed for something new in the future.

While this was certainly an entertaining season, it feels like things are in the same place they were in season one. Things need to start happening in order to keep viewers entertained.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
