    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.

    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.

    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.”

    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?

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

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

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

    How was this bop snubbed by the Grammys?

    4. Boar on the Floor

    5. Logan Roy's lavish Upper East Side apartment

    An ornate dining room with a long table with several place settings and flowers in the middle and a crystal chandelier hanging overhead

    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

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

    9. And last but not least, Cousin Greg.

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