Succesion spoilers follow.
Succession star Jeremy Strong has teased some details about what's in store for his character Kendall Roy when the show returns for its third season.
Sky Atlantic and HBO dark drama/black satire Succession was supposed to be in the middle of production on its third season right now, but we think you can hazard a guess as to what got in the way.
Hopefully filming will get underway soon, though, because the end of season 2 left us dying to see more – especially now that Strong has shared that the next season will be "more expansive and empowered" than before too.
By the end of Succession season 2, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) had asked his son Kendall to publicly take the fall for a huge scandal, with Ken ultimately agreeing to the decision.
The next day, however, Ken ended up changing his mind and instead he announced to the world that Logan was not only well aware of the misconduct, but also fully compliant in it too.
"Last season everything was in such a minor key, and held inside in a silent anguish that had to be sustained for six months. There was a sense of powerlessness that [my] character had," Strong recently told The Times.
"The Houdini magic trick at the very end allowed me to make that reversal, and suddenly I found my power. The pilot light that had been nearly extinguished came roaring back."
And it looks like father and son will go to war in the show's third season too, with Strong teasing that it's time to "see what my reign looks like".
Even though he hasn't seen any season 3 scripts, the star told The Times that he knows "broad strokes" about the third run, and added: "I feel like the energy of it will be more expansive and empowered."
The question is, will it just be Kendall feeling empowered, or those who want to take him down...?
Meanwhile, Logan star Brian Cox, who turned down a role in Game of Thrones, recently explained that they don't want to rush into production until they can guarantee a safe environment, stating: "HBO wants to protect that show because it's a key show for them.
"People have been really been watching it quite obsessively, sometimes two or three times over. So they're very protective of us and we have to get all the protocols right. We've got our own medical department dealing with the COVID thing.
"We'll get going," he continued. "But not until maybe November at the soonest, maybe even not until the beginning of next year."
Succession airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK.
