Succession season 3 dubious poster
As expected, with the announcement of the new season came a stylish new poster. The new poster shows the horribly dysfunctional family as they try to move forward with the season two finale. A clear line in the middle makes it clear who is on Kendall’s or Logan’s side.
The release date poster sent to the press features Shiv, Roman and Connor on Logan’s side. Meanwhile, Tom and Cousin Greg are right behind Kendall. However, it has been revealed that this is not the only version of the poster that has been revealed.
In a potential Easter egg, the poster that succession posted on twitter shows us another story. Shiv, Connor and Cousin Greg are on Kendall’s side, while Roman and Tom are on Logan’s side.

Even more confusing was that another version was posted on Instagram. In this one, Roman and Cousin Greg are on the left with Kendall, while Shiv, Tom, and Connor are on the right with Logan.
Oddly enough, Cousin Greg is the only person who never seems to switch sides. He stays on Kendall’s side through every poster variation.
