    I guess they could include Covid-19 as a storyline and finish it on time to compete at the winter awards or at least for it to air by May?

    Strong mentioned in an actor’s roundtable interview that they’re likely incorporating COVID-19 into the storyline. Kidman mentioned wanting to do this with BLL3 too.

    Edit: Ah I see on the last page someone beat me to this.

    If wishing made it so Jeremy…

    Jeremy Strong (back in June): I have lobbied hard to set [“Succession”] very squarely in this [pandemic] moment that we’re in. There’s [nearly 21 million] people unemployed in America, and I just read that there’s an $800 takeaway sushi box at Masa. And that is something certainly that speaks right to the core of the show that I’m working on. I would think that the writers have to write from this place that we’re in. Surely, it’s the stuff of great and real drama.

    Sarah Snook (earlier this week): I think [show creator] Jesse [Armstrong] wants to be delicate about it and just classy. I think it’s a thing that everybody’s aware of, and audiences are really intuitive these days. Even just seeing a mask in the background of something or hand sanitizer, those things that have become part of our daily lives, those things maybe, but nothing that is so overt that is going to really tackle it head on, because that’s not the show. We want to see the Roys doing the thing that they’ve been doing that we love, not pivoting towards a pandemic story.

    I’m with Snook on this one. I’m already living through the worst global pandemic in our history. I don’t need to see that reality fully dramatized on every television show. Maybe on shows where it’s inescapable, like “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Chicago Med.” Hospital shows have to cover covid. There’s no way around that without losing all realism or credibility. But yes, show the masks, the hand sanitizers, the economic fallout in NYC and country. I need the Roys to be as shitty as they always are in season 3 and beyond, like how they’re exploiting the pandemic and still making their billions, etc.

    I really don’t want to see every show tackle COVID. Sometimes you just want to not think of it.

    So late year filming. I believe this show takes awhile to film due to all the location filming. So probably won’t air in next year Emmy eligibility. They should film two seasons back to back .

    where did Nicole Kidman mention BLL 3? Considering she has so many back to back limited series. Don’t see when she would have time.

    I just want to say that whilst it says they are planning to go back before Christmas that necessarily doesn’t mean they will start filming in December. According to Matthew Macfadyen’s recent interview they still are slated to go back in September. It doesn’t necessarily mean they will start in December but could mean that they plan to finish at Christmas or plan to hopefully be able to start at worst around Christmas (emphasis on hopefully).

    I can still see them making Emmy eligibility with a Spring airdate especially considering they have less episodes to film (they have 8 episodes not 10 this season) and the fact that HBO has nothing slated for Spring right now but it seems unlikely they will make it in time for the Globes and/or SAG (which is sneakily extending its deadline to the end of February).

    I don’t think most shows should tackle COVID, but this is one of the few where I think they could handle it really well. Should it dominate the plot? No. But I think Armstrong and the other writers could do some very funny lines on it if they keep it to just minimal references.

    There was an Emmy roundtable talk with Kidman, Blanchett, King, Washington, Oh, Jackman, Strong, etc. recently.. in it, she mentioned BLL3 could include it, but still no definitive plans about BLL3 I doubt…

    Jackman mentioned on the talk that a lot of art that focuses on present-day issues typically ages better. I think he said this in reference to a movie made around the time of WWII that was not well received but is now very much respected, and it’s important that we have the perspective of the times reflected in our arts. But yeah, COVID could be a little much. It’s a little useless to discuss this in hypotheticals, I suppose. I’d need to see the product.

    Sarah Snook has confirmed today that the actors have been told the show will start shooting in mid November.

    Hopefully it’s ready on time to sweep again next year.

    How exciting. If that mid November shoot will go as planned, they might premiere by April (which is like the prime slot for HBO since it is before the Emmys deadline).

    Succession I can see, the show’s always been about satirizing absurdities of real life, as was also true for Jesse Armstrong’s work on Veep and The Thick Of It. Practically all S1 & 2 storylines are inspired by something that actually happened.

    But how the hell, or rather why the hell, is BLL planning to incorporate the virus? It has one of the most self contained, isolated, heavily fictionalized and linear plots of any show nominated in the last couple of years. It would be like Jane Eyre trying to talk about the Gold Rush. I really hope they don’t go even further off the rails than they already have, S2 was such a mess. Is the original show-runner supposed to come back for S3?

    rubbish

    Very interested to see if Holly Hunter returns. You could realistically either end Rhea’s story there or continue it so she becomes a regular or continues to be a recurring character.

    But I’m more interested to see if she returns considering she also might have to film Tina Fey’s comedy The Mayor as well.
