One of the most disappointing side-effects of the pandemic was some of the most anticipated movies and TV shows being delayed. Obviously, blockbuster movies suffered the most as they were either relegated to the small screen, pushed off theaters for months, or had their production halted halfway through.
TV was sort of all we had for a while, but thanks to those production halts, some of the best shows were delayed too. Like Succession.
HBO’s popular show, about a wealthy media family, a la the Murdochs, and their foibles, power struggles, and decadent lifestyles, had their third season delayed, but not anymore. With brilliant writing and a perfect cast, the show pointedly, and hilariously, satirizes the 1% At the end of the second season, Kendall made another power move, and we were left wondering how Logan (Brian Cox) would react.
We still don’t know, but now at least we know Succession is finally on its way back because HBO just released a teaser trailer for season 3. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait, we especially miss that sweet, sweet, theme song.
