The new drama will return for Season 2.
June 11, 2018
HBO announced today that Succession has been picked up for a second season. The freshman drama premiered earlier this month to mostly-positive reviews, though ratings for its first two episodes have been on the soft side.
The series follows the Roy family, which is comprised of the powerful patriarch Logan and his four children. Logan heads up the family-run business, Waystar Royco - one of the world's largest media and entertainment conglomerates. As the aging father begins to step back from the company, a power struggle erupts between him and his eldest son, and between the rest of the siblings themselves. The resulting feud tests their ability to separate business from family loyalties.
Look for Season 2 of Succession in 2019.

The only thing similar about these two shows, Billions and Succession, they are people with a lot of money. I'm glad HBO decided to renew this show, I wis more people would watch. The 10:00pm time slot doesn't help. The scripts and acting is top notch.
Lot's of plotting, black humor, and good old fashioned greed! I now know, what circling buzzards think about!

heh.. Billions.. like Succession.... is merely a soap opera which airs at 9pm once a week rather than an noon daily. Remove the over dramatized music scores and change the time slots and they'd be right at home between Days of Our Lives and The Young & The Restless. If you like those sort of shows, great. But well, it's not like there aren't things which are a BILLION TIMES BETTER on Sunday evenings.:)

I don't know how you are comparing this show to Billions. I do however, understand why you would be bored. It takes someone with a brain to follow it. Judging from the last seven presidential elections, people with brains are on short supply.

Really? You compare this show to Billions and say that Billions is boring... wow... Billions is far from boring. It's an amazing show wiht psychological twists, business cunning, humor, occasional nerd factor, great actors, one of the sexiest main female leads and power hungry sociopaths. What more could you want in a show?

I agree really boring some awful programmes getting renewed

OMG...I thought the same thing about "Billions". Maybe I need to take Adderall before watching it to stay more focused.
I work in the financial world and thought "Yawn".

I think it is a good drama about the uber rich and how awful they are. (In this case). It obviously has decent ratings because it is coming back. Hbo's Duece is much better imo though.

Just as boring and melodramatic as Showtime's "Billions" -- Guess this is HBO trying to compete for the same mediocre genre.
