The Succession Season 2 ended with several surprises. We watched Kendall (played by Jeremy Strong) declaring war against his father Logan Roy.
Succession Season 3 begins immediately following Kendall’s press conference. the family’s patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) decides to divide his circle of friends into two teams that include him, Tom (Matthew Macfadyen), Karl (David Rasche), Frank (Peter Friedman), and Hugo (Fisher Stevens) remain in Sarajevo (which is not a member of the extradition agreement to the U.S.) while Roman (Kieran Culkin), Gerri (J. Smith-Cameron) and Shiv (Sarah Snook) are returned in New York.
Logan tells the team the company is planning to temporarily take him back from his position as the CEO. The company’s management and the family are divided on who will take his place as a spokesperson. In the meantime, Kendall sets up a temporary headquarters at the apartment of Rava and employs two PR experts to assist him in managing Kendall’s public profile.
He makes contact with the majority of Waystar’s inside circles, hoping that he can win some of the more senior members towards his cause, however, he’s unable to contact Frank. Shiv is trying to get the legal counsel for Waystar by contacting Lisa Arthur, a high-profile New York attorney and personal acquaintance, but discovers the fact that Kendall has already spoken to her. Given the apparent incompetence, Gerri is named the interim CEO.
