Succession season 2 trailer: Let the plotting commence!

The second season of HBO's hit series Succession is coming soon and the network has released the official trailer for the new season! While the show is technically billed as a drama and has strong parallels to the Murdoch family (which runs NewsCorp and oversaw the Fox News/20th Century Fox operations), its first season very quickly settled into a darkly, profanely amusing groove that positions it more as a dysfunctional family dark comedy.

Watch the new trailer above. Beginning where season one dramatically left off, season two follows the Roys as they struggle to retain control of their empire amidst internal and external threats. But a new trailer for the show confirms there will also be much that is familiar about the show, with Kieran Culkin's Roman needling his brother, Jeremy Strong's troubled Kendall, and Matthew Macfadyen's Tom delivering a boatload of unpleasantness to Nicholas Braun's much-put-upon Greg.

Season 1 aired a year ago and we loved it.
