Inside Succession Season Two
The latest edition of Vanity Fair’s Still Watching podcast is all about Succession, the genre-defying HBO series (is it a very dark comedy? A very funny drama?) that returned for its second season Sunday night. After a relatively subdued debut, the show got viewers and critics buzzing last summer as it slowly evolved into a must-watch—and according to Still Watching host Joanna Robinson, its sophomore go-round puts to rest any question of whether Jesse Armstrong’s surprise hit can recapture lightning in a bottle. Part of the show’s allure lies in the way it twists real headlines and scandals into its fictional universe, which follows the foibles of an ultra-rich family with a booming media business—not the Murdochs, but also, not not the Murdochs. For a deep dive into the episode itself, listen to the latest episode of the podcast itself; for a detailed list of the real-life happenings that seem to have inspired events that unfold in the premiere, find Robinson’s rundown below.
