HBO Renews Succession


Following its June 3 launch on HBO, Succession has been renewed for a second season.

Created by Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop), with the pilot written by Armstrong and directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short), the drama follows the Roy family—Logan Roy and his four children—which controls one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. Succession watches as the family contemplates what the future will hold for them once their aging father begins to step back from the company.

The season one cast includes Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Natalie Gold, Peter Friedman and Rob Yang.
