There’s new blood coming to Waystar Royco and the circle of my favorite toxic white family. As much as I am going to miss Holly Hunter, I am excited to see how these new additions will play out in the next season’s conflicts over Waystar and between Kendall and Logan.

First things first. Justine Lupe, David Rasche, and Fisher Stevens have all been upgraded to series regulars. I am looking forward to seeing what is next for Lupe’s Willa. Will there be another play or will she fully settle into the role of Connor’s girlfriend and all that it entails? What kind of technological devices could she throw off the yacht next?

Alexander Skarsgård is coming back to HBO as this season’s recurring character Lukas Matsson, “a successful, confrontational tech founder and CEO.” This description sounds like my worst nightmare and it is only right that Skarsgård is the one to bring it to life. We all know that this will not be the first time when Skarsgård plays a successful businessman on HBO.

Coming up on the list of Succession’s newest additions is another talented, although slightly less tall, actor Adrien Brody. He is cast as Josh Aaronson, a billionaire activist investor (what a combo) who plays a pivotal role in the battle for the ownership of Waystar. Will the sex appeal of Kendall plummet with these characters entering the scene? I seriously doubt it.

Hope Davis, Linda Emond, Jihae and Sanaa Lathan were also added as the next season’s recurring characters. Davis will play Sandi Furness, the daughter of Sandy Furness, another billionaire and Logan’s nemesis trying to take over Waystar. Emond is cast as Michelle-Anne Vanderhoven, a senior White House aide. Jihae, a Korean musical star, will play Berry Schneider, a high-powered public relations consultant. Finally, Lathan will portray Lisa Arthur, a well-connected New York lawyer.

Season three of the show is currently in production. It does not have an official release date yet, although most likely it will air later this year. The season might be shorter than usual, according to Bryan Cox, and it also might covertly include the pandemic without centering the plot around it, according to Sarah Snook. The pandemic as background noise for the drama of the billionaire Roy family sounds only right.

The first two seasons of Succession are available to stream on HBO and HBO Max.
