HBO continues to be basking in the glory and surprise success that turned out to be Succession. The TV series has managed to garner a lot of love and critical acclaim and this obviously meant that the channel would have wanted one of its hottest showrunners to stay with them, isn't it?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO has signed Succession creator Jesse Armstrong to an exclusive three-year overall TV deal. Under the pact, Armstrong will continue to serve as showrunner on the breakout hit as well as create and develop new projects for the WarnerMedia-backed outlet.
Armstrong is fresh off three Golden Globe nominations, including for best drama series. Those follow an Emmy win for writing for a drama series that the creator, showrunner and exec producer earned earlier this year. The series also is up for three Critics' Choice Awards nominations, including best drama series, and recently collected an AFI Award.
Season three of Succession, starring Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Nicholas Braun, Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook, is expected to air on HBO in 2020.
