OFFICIAL: Sky to show Season 3 of Succession next year as they reveal their Christmas movies and TV schedule

If you're not watching the best show on TV, start now. There's plenty of other good stuff coming up in the next few months as well.

How do you solve a problem like Logan Roy?

It's sort of a problem of his own making, as every one of the Roy children flounder, scheme, and stumble to succeed him as the CEO of Waystar Royco in the hit TV series, Succession.

At this stage, we're starting to seriously think that cousin Greg could be the last person standing when the drama ends. If you haven't seen it yet, we're extremely jealous because it's one of - if not THE - best show on TV today.

If you're not familiar with Jesse Armstrong's drama, the basic plot is this: Imagine a scenario where a media mogul like Rupert Murdoch is about to stand down from the empire that he built.

However, his domineering, ruthless and intimidating business style has had an adverse impact on all of his children. The family dynasty slowly begins to disintegrate as he refuses to name a successor.

Every single one of the Roy children all want to take over - bar Conor, but that dude is on a whole other level - but they're all so deeply damaged by their father that they're bound to self-destruct and implode.

Horrible people doing horrible things and saying even worse things to each other, it's wonderful television.

What's not to love?

We've a sneaking suspicion that Season 3 will lean heavily into the Roman-Geri axis/business relationship/overtly-sexual Oedipus dynamic that they've got going on - but we'll have to wait and see.

Thankfully, Sky have confirmed that they will be showing the third season of the drama in 2020 - presumably on Sky Atlantic. No exact date has been given yet, but we're delighted to know that we wont have to wait too long to see it after the fantastic ending to Season 2.

Sky announced the news as they unveiled some of their festive highlights for the Christmas season.

Sky Cinema will show the premieres of Avengers: Endgame, Mary Poppins Returns and Mary Queen of Scots, as well as The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part and more.

As far as TV is concerned, the best of Christmas TV specials include Sky originals Cinderella: After Ever After, A League of Their Own’s Christmas Special, The Reluctant Landlord: Christmas Special and In The Long Run: Christmas Special.

However, this is just a precursor of what's to come in 2020, with Sky's pretty stacked slate including the return of shows like Succession, Westworld, Save Me Too, Riviera, Sick Of It, A Discovery of Witches, Brassic, and more.

In terms of new shows, there's The Undoing, which sees Nicole Kidman reunite with Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley.

Stephen King’s bestselling novel The Outsider is also coming to Sky and NOW TV and Robert Carlyle stars as the Prime Minister in COBRA, leading the British Government through turbulent times when the nation loses all power.

Viewers will get to explore a mysterious island in The Third Day starring Jude Law, as tragedy draws him to a strange land where he discovers its secretive inhabitants. Fans of The Wire will also be delighted to know that the show's creator, David Simon, has a new drama airing in 2020 called The Plot Against America.

Gareth Evans is back in the world of gangsters, guns,and violence in Gangs of London starring Colm Meaney, where the head of a criminal organisation’s assassination causes friction on the city’s streets.

As far as comedy programmes go, The Righteous Gemstones, Intelligence, The Trip To Greece, and Armando Iannucci's new show Avenue 5 should bring the laughs.

On top of this, there's loads more to enjoy with Sky Crime and a plethora of other titles making their way onto Sky and NOW TV in 2020.

Bring it on.
