Seasons 1-3 of HBO’s award-winning series are now streaming first and only on Showmax, with Season 3 having landed express from the US.

In Succession, filthy rich media tycoon Logan Roy (Brian Cox) is one of the most influential people in the world. But even he can’t escape nature – so when he discovers his time on Earth is running out, he has to appoint a family member to succeed him at the head of his mega-company, Waystar Royco.

The trouble is, all his family members and close associates are just about as terrible as he is. And they all want their cut. Logan might be ill but he’s not giving up anything without a fight.

The HBO series has an acclaimed cast: Jeremy Strong won the 2020 Best Actor Emmy as Kendall Roy, while Brian Cox won the 2020 Best Actor Golden Globe as his father, Logan. Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin, as Kendall’s siblings, and Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun and James Cromwell, as his extended family, also earned Emmy nominations. 

In Season 3, that already impressive cast is adding Oscar winner Adrien Brody (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Pianist) and Emmy winner Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies, True Blood), not to mention Black Reel winner Sanaa Lathan (The Affair, Love & Basketball), Emmy nominee Hope Davis (Your Honor, Captain America: Civil War) and singer Jihae (Mortal Engines).
