While reports of Succession restarting filming at the end of 2020 provided much needed good news, season three is not expected to air until Q4. as soon as possible. And it’s still too long to do without our favorite terrible rich family.
Fortunately, the cast and crew seem to be working really hard. For the past two months, they have been seen filming all over town. Since there is nothing else to do but wait, we decided to compile as much information as possible on where the filming has taken place so far, based on the reports of the social media, a voracious Succession subreddit, and more. Below are our results – which revealed, among other things, that the Roys will be spending a lot of time in Midtown next season (and none at Dia Chelsea).

A rewarder posted a “No Parking” movie set poster on February 26 and describes the location as near the Stone, “right on the edge of Central Park on the east side.” On Location Vacations too listing the block occupied by Pierre de l’Est 61st as a Succession March 1 filming location. And coincidentally (or not) there was a Roman observation on this same block on March 30.

“No parking” signs were spotted by the Sheraton in early and half-March. The redditor tipster described it as a “very bulky setup” and according to one commenter on this thread: “Apparently they’re shooting some sort of gala / black tie event (based on additional casting calls).”

Two editors posted observations here on March 15, both saying the filming was taking place inside the CBS building, which houses television and radio production facilities. One tipster reported seeing the following names on actor trailers: Kendall, Greg, Naomi (apparently this trailer had “Jess” on it), Ewan and Graham (Adrien Brody’s character? Alexander Skarsgård ?). (The tipster also managed to see Cousin Greg in the flesh. “This man is very tall,” they said.)

OLV listed this cross street as a filming location for March 11, although there was also whispers on social media of scenes shot here at the end of February, which happens to be when J. Smith-Cameron (Gerry) posted an Instagram video taken inside the glass elevator in the lobby of the hotel’s rather dystopian 48-story atrium. There was also some reports of the shoot taking place in March outside the Music Box Theater, which is just down the block from the Marriott on West 45th Street.

This building, which is used as the exterior of the offices of Waystar RoyCo, will reappear in the new season. This fact has already been teased by Nicholas Braun’s (Greg) March 24 Instagram. Publish of himself (in costume) outside the building, which also showed a giant screen displaying the Waystar Royco ticker (which read “Commit hate crime via emoji” and “TikTok teen”). here is a video of the set of the same day (you can signage Waystar Royco on one of the columns of the building). And for some reason, a famous French Bulldog on Instagram managed to capture a video of Kendall doing the Kendall walk in the building (with a baseball cap).

People Point the cast pulling here more than one week in mid-April. The Shed, which just finished hosting the frieze, was apparently not the show’s first choice for an art world setting. According to artnet, the producers originally wanted to film at the recently reopened Dia Chelsea on West 22nd Street, but were turned down (at least in part because Dia’s board of directors, James Murdoch, wanted nothing to do with the series). In any case, Deuxmoi too sharing a tip that includes a photo of the artisanal service menu on the tray (offered: various burgers, pastries, juices and fruit cups). The same tipster reported seeing trailers of Kendall, Shiv, and Greg (and names of new characters they “didn’t remember”).
Beach Lane in Wainscott, East Hampton
An East Hampton Patch article on April 26 ad that the show would run in the area all week. This included scenes at Shadmoor State Park in Montauk (which is only less than a quarter of a mile from the village of Montauk, and includes a 2,400-foot beach, located under high bluffs), and “a short driving scene” on Beach Lane in Wainscott (Beyoncé and Jay-Z, the Baldwins, Ronald Perelmen and the Spielbergs all have homes in the area; J.Crew president Mickey Drexler is in owner on Beach Lane). Artnet Intel suggests that the exact house they are filming on is 115 Beach Lane, a modern 11,000 square foot mansion (currently on the market for $ 50 million) which is mostly covered in glass and has a 72-foot pool.

Kendall was seen (still with a baseball cap) outside the Mandarin Oriental (a hotel where the Murdochs, by the way, frequented a lot a black tie event) last week (but there was also “No parking” posters Point in the same district at the beginning of February). According to a Reddit tipster, there were actor trailers for Kendall, Josh, Logan Stunt Double and Stunt Drivers for all three, and then later today the trailer names were changed to Kendall, Tom and Greg.
