But in the final scenes, Shiv's husband Tom's (Matthew Macfadyen) plotting against her was exposed as it was revealed that he had tipped Logan off about the plan.

And it seems Tom's information has saved Logan's role as head of Waystar Royco as a short clip in an HBO sizzle reel teasing new releases shows him addressing his staff with a typically sweary pep talk.

He bellows at an office full of employees: “We’re killing the opposition! I’m going to build something better, faster, leaner, wilder.

“I love it here. I f***ing love it!”

Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) looks thrilled by the speech, but all four of the Roy children appear increasingly uneasy at the speech which hints at Logan's plan to sell up to tech boss Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård).

The 10-episode series is expected to be back on Sky in 2023, a shorter wait for fans than the previous season which aired in 2021 after a long break from 2019 caused by the pandemic.

Other shows trailed in the HBO sizzle reel include a new series of The White Lotus, this time welcoming guests to a danger-ridden resort in Sicily.

There is a first look at the new seasons of The Gilded Age, Larry David sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Sex and the City spin-off And Just Like That.
