Adrien Brody, Alexander Skarsgard and Hope Davis debut in Succession season three trailer

Adrien Brody, Alexander Skarsgard and Hope Davis make their Succession debuts in the trailer for season three of the hit drama.

The trailer offers a glimpse into the new season, picking up immediately after close of the season two finale, with the Roy family caught in a civil war.

The two-minute teaser shows the bitter disagreement intensify after Jeremy Strong’s Kendall Roy leads a rebellion against Brian Cox’s patriarch Logan Roy.

Brody guest stars as billionaire activist investor Josh Aaronson, while Skarsgard is Lukas Matsson, a successful and confrontational tech company founder.

Both characters become involved in the battle for control over Waystar RoyCo – a global media and entertainment conglomerate.

Davis plays Sandi Furness, the daughter of Logan’s long-time rival, who is seen meeting with Kendall Roy to discuss their options for taking down his father without losing control among the shareholders at Waystar.

Succession, from Peep Show creator Jesse Armstrong, has been acclaimed since it premiered in 2018.
