Success's third season premieres this Monday, October 18, in HBO. Without a doubt, it is one of the most anticipated premieres of recent times. The members of the powerful and wild Roy Family have captivated public and criticism in their first two deliveries.
So much is the success achieved, that there are few who place this creation of Jesse Armstrong near the Olympus of Series, where the Soprano, Braking Bad, Mad Man, The Wire or Game of Thrones. If finally the history of the adventures and misadventures of Logan Roy's media emporium (played by Brian Cox) accesses the select club of the unmissables, it will depend to a large extent on how the next chapters are developed.
And the truth is that the end of the second season provides the possibility to its characters to squeeze all their vices and their most twisted and wild ideas. Without ripping too much (enough to see the trailer), remember that the series stayed with Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) appearing before the media, after his father forced him to be Turkish's head for the scandals that were coming out In light around the gem of the family crown, the giant of the Waystar Royco media.
However, Logan contemplates from the Hall of his Suprayate how the press conference is not coming as planned. Kendall is not sacrificing, but she is pointing out to her father as aware of all accusations of irregularities, sexual abuse and even murder.
Although the focus has intensified the pulse between Kendall and Logan, the intrigues that maintain the other brothers, Roman (Kieran Culkin), SHIV (Sarah Snook) and Connor (Alan Ruck), will be safe at the height of the circumstances. Without forgetting other characters like Marcia (Hiam Abbass), Greg (Nicholas Braun), Frank (Peter Friedman), Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Lawrence (Rob Yang). Everyone with their particular desires, hatred and traumas.
Inspired by the life of the Rupert Murdoch magnate, Succcess has managed to devastate the Emmy, Gold Balloons and other awards as 'Best Series' by making its characters transmit contempt and seduction to equal parts through a raw and credible cynical humor. Seeing how such immensely rich and despicable beings are destroyed between them is something as if Goya had mixed in the same canvas dueling to garrots and Saturn devouring his son, all Louis Vuitton dresses. A dancing spectacle full of power and luxury.
After all, it is a tremendously powerful, capricious and ambitious family that begins to fall apart. With a 'capo' obsessed with controlling even the smallest detail of the empire of him and with unscrupulous brothers fighting a war without barracks for becoming heir to the throne, the series has sufficient ingredients to continue climbing towards Olympus. This Monday, the first step.
Succession will have new signings in its third season, Adrien Brody and Alexander Skarsgård. The first will incarnate Josh Aaronson, a multimillionaire who will be key in the battle for taking the control of Waystar Royco, the family giant who staggers dotted by the scandals. For the part of him, Skarsgård will be Lukas Mattson, a conflictive magnate from the technology sector.
Other new faces of the third season will be that of Sanaa Lathan (The Affair) will interpret a prestigious lawyer; Linda Emond (Madam Secretary) as an assistant of the White House; Jihae (Mars), who will be an expert consultant in public relations and, finally, Hope Davis (Your Honor), which is incorporated as Sandy's daughter (Larry Pine). She will also add to fiction with a role by determining Dasha Nekrasova (Mr. Robot).Updated Date: 18 October 2021, 07:43
