Succession star Nicholas Braun has dropped a hint about when Season 3 could finally hit the air, but don’t get excited if you’re hoping to see it soon. 

The critically acclaimed Succession first aired on HBO back in late 2018, following the dysfunctional Roy family and their media empire – Waystar Royco.

Throughout the first two seasons, there have been powerplays by different members of the family in order to try and get a leg up but it’s the comical cousin Greg, who usually stands to the side of the chaos, who has stolen the hearts of many fans.

With viewers eager to see what Season 3 has in store, Nicholas Braun, who plays Greg, offered up a small insight into when it could return to television screens across the world.

The 32-year-old joined Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy and Bon Jovi for a spontaneous pizza review and got on to the topic of when Succession will be making its return while wrapping things up.

“Next year, late summer maybe,” Braun told Portnoy, explaining that he’s unable to narrow down an exact point. “Every time I say a date, they like freak out at me and they’re like ‘you can’t say anything, don’t say anything’ so I have to be like next year sometime.”

As for where Season 3 could be set, the show has previously filmed on location in Croatia and Scotland but for the most part, they’re based in New York. So, it might just be a series at home for the Roy family given everything that’s going on.

Brian Cox, who plays Logan Roy, recently revealed that November looks like the earliest point at which the show will return to filming, but it could also be put off until the beginning of 2021.

Fans are eager to see where the drama of the Roy family leads next following Season 2’s closing bombshell of Kendall Roy exposing his father’s cover-ups in a bid to take control of the family’s media empire.
