Synopsis

The Roy family – Logan Roy and his four children – controls one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. Succession, which was nominated for five 2019 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, tracks their lives as they contemplate what the future will hold for them when — or if — their ageing father begins to step back from the company.

Created by Oscar and WGA nominee, Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop), with the pilot written by Armstrong and directed by Oscar-winner, Adam McKay (The Big Short), Succession’s second season picks up where season one dramatically left off as the Roy family faces myriad internal and external threats

Episode 7, Return: A trip to the Uk finds the Roy kids negotiating with their mother; Logan turns to Rhea for advice.

Episode 8, Dundee: The entire Roy clan travels to Logan's hometown of Dundee, Scotland, for a celebration of Logan's 50 years in the business; Kendall becomes enamoured with Jennifer, an actress in Willa's play; a former employee proves difficult to silence.

Succession is available to watch on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
