Succession season three teaser unveils aftermath of cliffhanger finale

‘Are you with me?’ Succession season three teaser unveils aftermath of cliffhanger finale… as Kendall Roy prepares for battle against his father


The third season of Succession is just days away, and HBO Max unveiled a tantalizing new teaser on Tuesday. 

The new clip focuses on Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) as he leaves the explosive press conference from season two’s jaw-dropping finale.

Fresh from betraying his father, ailing media mogul Logan Roy (Brian Cox), Kendall marches out to face the music amid a barrage of reporters.

Providing some comic relief, Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) begins to shout ‘no comment!’ at the press gang, but he’s quickly told to shush by Waystar Royco head of PR Karolina (Dagmara Dominczyk).

The drama begins as Karolina briefs Kendall saying he has opened up the family business to lawsuits and investigations, and questions why they are using a company car to exit the press conference, given he no longer works there.

‘Are you with me, yes or no?’ he asks Karolina, saying he needs a ‘clean jar’ given his explosive statement.
