Watch the trailer for season three of the award-winning Succession

Fans of HBO's Succession were over the moon when Sky released the first trailer for the long-awaited third season. One fan said they 'feel like i could run 100 miles in 10 seconds' after seeing the first look teaser.

The Roy family is still embroiled in a bitter civil war in the first look at the acclaimed drama that has been away for nearly two years but is set to return in the autumn.

Season two finished with Jeremy Strong’s Kendall Roy leading a rebellion against Brian Cox’s family patriarch Logan Roy, and the new teaser shares a glimpse into the continuing fallout.

His arrival at the office appears to be met with fury by Logan, who has to be restrained while yelling, “I’m going to f****** kill him”.

“The revolution will be televised,” a seemingly triumphant Kendall says as he pumps his fist in the air.

“He’s our dad, but he was going to send me to jail,” he later tells his siblings of their ruthless father. “He’d do the same to all of us.”
