The American comedy-drama television series directed by the Oscar award Adam McKay
Set in New York, the HBO drama follows billionaire Logan Roy as he pits his children against one another with a view to naming the successor to his business empire.
The fans have been glued to the gripping family saga for two whole series now, from season one’s slow-burning ancestral battles to the latest legal catastrophe in season two finale. What will happen in the third season? The last episode of the second season was very thrilling. Backed by loyal Cousin Greg, heir apparent Kendall Roy ripped up his prepared statement and unmasked a decades-long cover-up live on national television. His father’s legacy was left in tatters. So what now? Should he prepare to feel Logan’s wrath – or is this the proof Chairman Roy needs to finally name his successor?
Commissioning network HBO gave season three the green light last August, before season two had even finished airing. It was initially set to return sometime in 2020, but the show has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Filming began in New York in November last year. Now the set is about to arrive in Italy, in Toscana and in Lombardia. Filming will take place in Toscana in July for a few weeks. Confirmed locations are Cortona, near Arezzo, Chianciano Terme and Montalcino, in Val d’Orcia.
The show stars Brian Cox as Logan Roy, with Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen and J. Smith-Cameron rounding out the primary cast. Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond and Jihae Join had joined the cast for the new season.
