Season three will, of course, see the return of beloved stars of the HBO/Sky Atlantic drama including Brian Cox as head of the Roy family, Logan, Kieran Culkin as Roman, Jeremy Strong as Kendall and Sarah Snook as Shiv. It'll also see the return of Matthew MacFadyen as Tom Wambsgans and Nicholas Braun as cousin Greg.

The third instalment of the show will no doubt pick up where season two left out and dig deeper into Kendall's decision to overthrow his father and his plans for the Waystar Royco franchise. We cannot wait!

The third season of Succession is available to stream with a NOW Entertainment Membership from the 18th October.
