The series has won big again, fighting off some serious competition from other TV big-hitters.  

Seasonal success 

Emmys don’t fall from trees. Unless you’re Jesse Armstrong, that is. Having won its first ‘Outstanding Drama’ Emmy award for its second season in 2020, the hit series has won the big prize again for its third season. In a week dominated by talk of successions, that’s one hell of a record to boast about.  

It’s an achievement all the more remarkable when you consider the stiff competition Succession was up against. From the global phenomenon of Squid Game to the eternal favorite of Stranger Things, it’s safe to say the production team earned that bread.  

A busy night 

But winning the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series just wasn’t enough. Already the most nominated program at the awards, Armstrong also picked up the prize for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, while Matthew Macfadyen won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of the lovable yet Machiavellian Tom Wambsgans.  

And could there be more success to come? The show will soon be heading into its fourth season, which is expected to release either later this year or early in 2023. Season four will have another 10 episodes, and if the last outing is anything to go by, Jesse Armstrong might need to make more space in his award cabinet.
