The first trailer for the second season of Sky Atlantic drama Succession has been released – and it sees Brian Cox’s Logan Roy take back the reins from his son Kendall after the events of last year’s shocking finale.

The last episode of season one was explosive, literally and figuratively. It saw Kendall’s efforts to wrestle the family business from his father come crashing down after he was involved in the accidental death of a young waiter at Shiv and Tom’s wedding. Meanwhile, Roman (Kieran Culkin) watched as a space shuttle whose launch he had co-ordinated blew up in mid-air.

The season two trailer places Logan back in the driving seat, as he and his descendants attempt to clean up last season’s mess. There are the small matters of keeping Kendall out of prison and dismantling the takeover of Waystar Royco he had enacted. Check it out below.

The trailer also reveals that the show will be returning in August, so we only have a few more months to wait until we’re back with our favourite basket of deplorables.
