The show's new episodes will take a deeper dive into Roy family enemy territory.

Skarsgård will be part of the mix as a family civil war ensues. The tensions brewing between the Roys was teased at the end of Season 2. For those who might need reminding, Logan Roy’s (Brian Cox) son Kendall (Jeremy Strong) betrayed the family, potentially devastating issues within their Waystar Royco conglomerate.

Season 3 will follow the family’s scramble to secure political and financial power as tensions rise to extreme heights, threatening to turn their family against one another forever. Skarsgård joins Strong, Cox, and other series regulars Sarah Snook, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Kieran Culkin, and Alan Ruck.
