One of the biggest shows on television returned for a third season in late 2021, reuniting fans with the one and only Roy family. Yup, we’re talking about Succession, HBO’s hard-hitting dark comedy that’s equal parts evil and hilarious. The show is critically acclaimed and has won multiple prestigious awards in the past, and that success won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

The Emmy Awards just ended, which aired live on NBC and Peacock on Monday night. As you’d expect, Succession was nominated again, this time for a whopping 25 awards! The series is leading the charge in noms and fans are not surprised. This show is seriously one of the best and you’re missing out if you’re not watching it!

Succession won pretty early on at the Emmys tonight, with Matthew MacFadyen taking home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. The British actor plays Tom Wambsgans and always steals the show in his scenes. Later on in the show, Jesse Armstrong was awarded Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. And the biggest award of the night went to the HBO show! They were awarded with Outstanding Drama Series. So well-deserved.

The series also won an award at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards which took place earlier this month.
