When will Succession season 3 episode 8 release?

Succession season 3 episode 8 is scheduled to release on Sunday, December 5, 2021 on HBO and HBO Max.

Viewers will be able to tune into the new episode at 9 PM ET (8 PM CT) either live or on catch up later on using the HBO streaming platform.

What will the plot be about?

Episode 8, titled ‘Chiantishire,’ will likely follow members of the Roy family and other wealthy, powerful associates who spend a vacation overseas.

‘Chiantishire’ is a name given to Tuscany, Italy, and is known to be a retreat for wealthy individuals – the perfect spot for the Roys.

As for the plot, the promo suggests that tensions will be high during the acquisition of GoJo, and Logan may be forced into the spotlight.

How many episodes are in Succession season 3?

Despite seasons 1 and 2 providing 10, solid episodes to indulge in, Succession season 3 will only have nine episodes to bulk out the latest chapter.

It has not been officially revealed why the third season is short by one episode, however, it could have something to do with the severe pandemic-related delays that caused the show’s filming and airing schedule to suffer.

While there has been no official release date announced for the season 3 finale, we can still make an educated guess. If all goes according to schedule, the finale should premiere on Sunday, December 12, 2021 on HBO.
