A drama about a dysfunctional media family dynasty in the 21st century. The Roy family – Logan Royand his four children – controls one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. "Succession" tracks their lives as they contemplate what the future will hold for them once their aging father begins to step back from the company.
HBO announced today that Succession has been picked up for a second season. The freshman drama premiered earlier this month to mostly-positive reviews, though ratings for its first two episodes have been on the soft side.
The series follows the Roy family, which is comprised of the powerful patriarch Logan and his four children. Logan heads up the family-run business, Waystar Royco - one of the world's largest media and entertainment conglomerates. As the aging father begins to step back from the company, a power struggle erupts between him and his eldest son, and between the rest of the siblings themselves. The resulting feud tests their ability to separate business from family loyalties.
Look for Season 2 of Succession in 2019.
