HBO released a new trailer for “Succession” Season 2 on Thursday, when Waystar Royco patriarch Logan (Brian Cox) reminds us that “Money wins.”
Lower down the family food chain, Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) fires bottles of water at poor Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun), who calls out for security.
“Back off!” Tom yells at the guards. “This is executive-level business!”
“Succession” Season 2 begins where the 10-episode Season 1 dramatically left off, per HBO’s description. We don’t want to say anything else that could potentially spoil the freshman year’s finale, which took a hard right turn. (Those who didn’t miss Season 1 might find a joke there.)
The sophomore run follows the Roys as they struggle to retain control of their media empire, the premium cable channel continued. While the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them.
“Succession” was created by Jesse Armstrong, who showruns. Armstrong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Will Ferrell, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod and Tony Roche are Season 2 executive producers.
The Season 2 cast includes Cox, Kieran Culkin, Macfadyen, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Alan Ruck, Braun, Peter Friedman, Rob Yang, J. Smith Cameron, Dagmara Dominczyk and Arian Moayed.
Watch the trailer above.
“Succession” returns to HBO for Season 2 on Sunday, August 11.
