HBO has renewed the drama series SUCCESSION for a third season.

The drama which stars Austalia's Sarah Snook, along with Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Kieran Culkin, and Alan Ruck has been building a strong following with the second season currently airing in Australia on Foxtel.

Beginning where season one dramatically left off, season two follows the Roy family as they struggle to retain control of their empire, and while the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them.

The renewal was announced by HBO Head of Programming, Francesca Orsi.

"We are elated that SUCCESSION and its exploration of wealth, power and family has resonated so powerfully with audiences,"

"We cannot wait to see how the complex characters that Jesse Armstrong has created continue to navigate this captivating, ruthless world of the uber-rich. In today's world, where the intersection of politics and media is increasingly prevalent, SUCCESSION presents an especially piercing look behind the curtain of this elite, influential, and cutthroat community."

SUCCESSION Season 2 airs on Mondays at 8:30pm On Fox Showcase & Streaming On Demand.
