The Cast of 'Succession' Is Getting Big Pay Raises for Season 3

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.

Anne Rice Reveals Dream Cast for 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Show

Anne Rice recently revealed that she has obtained the rights to develop a television series based on her Vampire Chronicles books. Now, she is dishing on her dream cast!

The legendary author envisions a show like Game of Thrones for her book series.

While Anne did not reveal her pick to play Lestat, she did dish on her pick for Louis. “It’s Louis’ beauty that attracted Lestat to him, and I would hope it would be a beautiful actor like Matt Bomer. Somebody with that incredible beauty. Brad Pitt did a beautiful job in the original film, and he set the bar very high when it comes to physical beauty,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
