Game of Thrones isn’t the only HBO show with powerful warring families. Succession is about the battle along bloodlines for the Waystar Royco media company, and it’s got brothers and sisters and parents all jockeying for position on the corporate battlefield. The family has a new enemy to focus on, played by Cherry Jones, who, despite having a sweet smile, doesn’t seem like she’ll go down without a fight.
The trailer shows Shiv settling into a more visible role in the company, if for no reason other than to make Kendall mad. The show stars Brian Cox as the family’s patriarch, along with Sarah Snook, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, and Alan Ruck as the constantly quarreling siblings. Finally, more Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) when Succession premieres on August 11.
