Season three of Succession is currently in production, after a number of delays related to the coronavirus crisis.

The series won big at this year’s Emmy Awards, taking home prizes for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Jeremy Strong.

Elsewhere, Brian Cox – who plays the Roy patriarch Logan Roy – recently revealed who Logan’s favourite child might be, nodding to Sarah Snook’s character Shiv.

“Well, of course he’s got [a favourite],” Cox told Mint. “You know, like all fathers… It’s ironic because I have three sons, I have a son from a different marriage, and I’ve got a daughter, and one always has a stronger bond with your female child. I don’t know why, but you do.”

However, he added: “He’s ultimately disappointed because she’s too impetuous, and her character is not quite formed enough.

“He finds her impetuosity – especially her behaviour at the Pierce dinner (season 2, episode 5) – as really unacceptable, and I think it’s a source of great disappointment to him that she hasn’t worked out as a possible successor.”

Season three of Succession is set to return next year.
