Alexander Skarsgard — best known for his roles on “True Blood” and “Big Little Lies” — has been cast in a new role for “Succession” season 3 on HBO.
The series, which chronicles the media empire run by the Roy family, will pick up after an explosive season 2 finale saw Kendall Roy expose his father as the driving force behind a series of cover-ups at the company that included deaths and payoffs made to victims. Initially, Kendall was supposed to act as the fall guy for the family but instead with some help from cousin Greg aka Greg Sprinkles, he was able to turn the tables on his father and point the finger at him instead.
Skarsgard will join “Succession” season 3 as Lukas Matsson — “a successful, confrontational tech founder and CEO.”
How he plays into the Waystar-Royco drama remains to be seen but he’ll certainly have plenty of heavyweight titans to go up against when season 3 begins.
Season 3 picks up with Logan Roy battling for his career after Kendall exposed him in those scandals and now the very company he founded might be ready to be rid of him once and for all.
“Succession” season 3 is currently in production in New York.
