HBO has decided to stay in business with Waystar Royco. The network announced today that it’s handed out a season-three renewal to the Jesse Armstrong–created series Succession, which comes just two weeks into the airing of season two. And season two has already brought us so much — like a snazzy new opening-titles sequence, more Cousin Greg, Napoleon’s severed penis, and a pile of instantly iconic Vaulter (RIP) headlines like “5 Reasons Why Drinking Milk on the Toilet Is Kind of a Game-Changer” and “Meet the Guys Who Want to Turn Justin Bieber Into a Viking Longship.”

“We are elated that Succession and its exploration of wealth, power and family has resonated so powerfully with audiences,” HBO exec Francesca Orsi said of the news. “We cannot wait to see how the complex characters that Jesse Armstrong has created continue to navigate this captivating, ruthless world of the uber-rich. In today’s world where the intersection of politics and media is increasingly prevalent, Succession presents an especially piercing look behind the curtain of this elite, influential, and cutthroat community.”

In somewhat related news, Vaulter — we mean Vulture — is also elated by the news that HBO has officially crowned our website the Succession of the HBO series universe. We’re all going to drink milk on the toilet today to celebrate.
