The Roy family's return to our screens is finally happening, with Succession season 3 landing a premiere date.

While it's not an exact date just yet, the next batch of episodes of the HBO drama has now been officially confirmed to debut in October 2021 after delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The show shared the news on Twitter with a new picture of Brian Cox as Logan Roy, accompanied by the simple caption "October".

The news comes after Succession debuted a first trailer for season 3, which showcased the battlelines being drawn following the huge cliffhanger at the end of the last season.

Returning to the fold are likes of Cox's patriarch Logan, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin as children Kendall, Shiv and Roman, as well as Nicholas Braun's Cousin Greg and Matthew Macfadyen's Tom.

They'll be joined this time around by Peaky Blinders actor Adrien Brody, who will play Josh Aaronson, "a billionaire activist investor who becomes pivotal in the battle for the ownership of Waystar".

Also on board is Big Little Lies star Alexander Skarsgård as Lukas Matsson, a "successful, confrontational tech founder and CEO", Hope Davis as Sandy Furness's (Larry Pine) daughter Sandi Furness, as well as Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, Jihae, Dasha Nekrasova and Ella Rumpf.

Meanwhile, executive producer Georgia Pritchett recently opened up about when the series will come to an end, suggesting it won't go on for more than five seasons.

"I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four," she told The Times.

"We're at the end of filming season three, so at this point [showrunner Jesse Armstrong] is saying only one more. But that happens every time. We've got a good end in sight."

Succession returns in October on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
