    It's Been Entirely Too Long Since The Season 2 Finale, So Here's 9 Reasons Why We Need "Succession" Season 3 ASAP

    I miss Cousin Greg more than my actual cousins.

    In case you haven't been counting the days since the Season 2 finale of Succession, it's been A WHILE.

    579 days to be exact, as of publishing. Due to the pandemic, the filming of the dark comedy series was one of many beloved shows to be put on hold.

    And this was me waiting for a Succession-related update.

    HBO

    However, the third season is currently being filmed.

    As per JustJared, Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) and Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) were seen filming in New York as recently as Tuesday, May 11.

    HBO

    Yes!

    And it's expected to pick up where the bombshell of a finale left off.

    HBO's description reads: “Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall (Strong) at the end of season two, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) begins Season 3 in a perilous position. Scrambling to secure familial, political and financial alliances, tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war.”

    I'm just happy I wasn't at the Roy family Zoom Thanksgiving call last year.

    Season three will likely arrive later this year, Insider reported.

    But in the meantime, shall I count the ways in which I love thee, Succession?

    HBO

    Heads up: there are spoilers ahead for those who aren't caught up on the Roy family drama.

    1. Brian Cox telling everyone to "f*ck off"

    HBO

    Sometimes I will mutter the catchphrase under my breath just like the curmudgeon.

    2. Shiv (Sarah Snook) and her amazing turtlenecks.

    There's no one else who can rock a backless turtleneck.

    3. Kendall rapping "L to the O-G"

    How was this bop snubbed by the Grammys?

    4. Boar on the Floor

    HBO

    No one's favorite party game. The Cut broke down the rules of the infamous scene.

    5. Logan Roy's lavish Upper East Side apartment

    From the foyer to the dining room and the high ceilings and artwork, it's hard not to be amazed by the ornate home right by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park. Needless to say, all the Roy residences are incredible.

    6. The Succession theme song

    Between the music and the sequence cutting between New York City and grainy, vintage home videos of the Roy family at their estate, it gives me chills every time. Nicholas Britell's soundtrack is phenomenal in general.

    7. The way Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) eats chicken

    Find yourself a man who inhales chicken in front of your father like Tom, amirite??

    8. Gerri (J. Smith-Cameron) and Roman's (Kieran Culkin) relationship

    So many cringe moments between the youngest Roy and Waystar Royco's general counsel. But, if shipping them is wrong, then I don't want to be right.

    9. And last but not least, Cousin Greg.

    HBO

    IYKYK.

    Now, please excuse me while I rewatch this incredible show. Again.
