Industry Added A Game Of Thrones Alum To The Season 3 Cast
The Gen Z workplace drama will reportedly begin filming in April 2023.
Picking up a year after the height of the pandemic, Industry Season 2 found almost all of its central young graduates landing jobs at Pierpoint & Co., a fictional international bank in London. This time around, however, they couldn’t hide behind their rookie statuses, as a mandatory return to in-person working amid a waning market had the trading floor more charged up and paranoid than ever. With a new United States-based management firm also entering the mix, the protagonists were tasked with driving new business and forging new alliances — both in and out of the office.
HBO renewed Industry for a third season on Oct. 25. “Industry reached new heights in Season 2, cementing its status as a buzzy hit with addictive storytelling, layered characters, a breakneck pace, and keen observations about contemporary workplace dynamics,” Kathleen McCaffrey, Senior Vice President, HBO Programming, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue our journey with them into Season 3.”
Co-creator Konrad Kay, who co-wrote the Gen Z workplace drama with longtime friend Mickey Down, teased that they still have a lot of gas left in the tank. “I think we’re only just beginning to hit our stride,” Kay, who described the series as being “about playing the game and getting what you want,” told The Guardian in late August.
Both he and Down have already “done a lot of thinking about where [the characters] could all be in three or four years’ time.” Here’s everything we know about Industry Season 3 so far.
The Industry Season 3 Cast
Though a full casting announcement remains forthcoming, Industry Season 2 starred returning “Graduates” Myha’la Herrold (Harper Stern), Marisa Abela (Yasmin Kara-Hanani), Harry Lawtey (Robert Spearing), and David Jonsson (Gus Sackey); and “Management” Ken Leung (Eric Tao) and Conor MacNeill (Kenny Kilblane).
In a September 2022 Bustle interview, Herrold, who also recently co-starred in Bodies Bodies Bodies, credited Industry as the project that made her believe in herself. “Now I know for sure that I’ve earned my place here, because I have evidence that I can do it,” she said. “And I got out of it alive.”
Also stirring things up at Pierpoint & Co. — and beyond — in the series’ second outing were new cast regulars: Alex Alomar Akpobome (Danny Van Deventer), Indy Lewis (Venetia Berens), Katrine de Candole (Celeste Pacquet), Jay Duplass (Jesse Bloom), Sonny Poon Tip (Leo Bloom), and Adam Levy (Charles Hanani).
As Season 3 writer and consulting producer Joseph Charlton told Digital Spy in March 2023, “We just finished the writers’ room for series three. We’re casting it at the moment. I’m really excited about the casting conversations that are happening at the moment.”
Deadline reported on April 4 that Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington is joining Industry Season 3 in a recurring role as Henry Muck, the CEO and Founder of Lumi, an exciting green tech energy company that’s about to go public.
The Industry Season 3 Plot
When announcing Harington’s casting news, Deadline teased some Season 3 plot details, including that, as Pierpoint looks to the future and takes a big bet on ethical investing, the desk find themselves front and center in the splashy IPO of Muck’s Lumi, in a story that runs all the way to the very top of finance, media and government.
“It’s going into new places, and I think it's seeing the entanglement of finance and sectors in other parts of the world and politics in a way that I think is really novel and interesting,” Charlton added in his Digital Spy interview. “We’re kind of expanding out, and the frame’s getting wider, and you’re starting to see, the bosses above those people, and then those bosses’ bosses, and then how a big investment bank fits into the hierarchy of society more broadly than that.”
The Industry Season 3 Potential Premiere Date
Filming for the eight-episode Industry Season 3 is reportedly slated to kick off in the United Kingdom beginning in April 2023, per Deadline. Shortly after the show’s November 2020 debut, HBO renewed the series a month later. However, filming wrapped almost an entire year later in December 2021, ahead of an August 2022 premiere date. With an official Season 3 renewal in October 2022, that timeline would point to a mid-2024 Season 3 premiere. However, given that delays between Season 1 and Season 2 were at least partly pandemic-related, production might not take quite as long for a third season.
This post will be updated as more details on Industry Season 3 become available.
