Succession will be returning for a third season on HBO and the cast is going to be making a lot more money for their work!
THR reports that the seven main stars of the series are getting pay raises for the third season.
Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfayden, and Nicholas Braun will all be making around $300,000 to $350,000 per episode. Brian Cox, who won a Golden Globe earlier this year for his performance as patriarch Logan Roy, will be making more than the rest of the cast.
It is being reported that most of the cast was earning below $100,000 per episode for the first two seasons. It’s very common in Hollywood for the casts of successful series to renegotiate their pay after two seasons.
The first two seasons of Succession are currently streaming on HBO Go and they’ll be available on the upcoming streaming service HBO Max as well.
