Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin were ready to tide Succession fans as they arrived at the studios in The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Friday ahead of the show’s upcoming third season premiere.
Snook, 33, and Culkin, 39, were joined by the majority of the lead roles, including cousin Greg breakout Nicholas Braun, legendary tespian Brian Cox and Alan Ruck.
Both Snook and Culkin rocked classic black ensembles in front of that late-night talk show in New York, while their costumes favored more colorful looks.

Snook beamed ear-to-ear outside the studio in a sleek, ribbed black dress that reached down to her knees.
The intriguing look featured long sleeves and triangular cutouts across the chest, and she was given accessories with a black quilted handbag with a thick strap.
The Australian actress stood tall in black plateau heels with open toes, adding a splash of color to the outfit with her pink hair, which she wore, parted down the middle in a stylish bob.
Culkin hardly seemed to distinguish from his successional character Roman Roy with his designer stump, well-fitted black trousers and a slim black tie.
He had his suit draped over one arm and carried a tote bag filled with other things.
Changing pace: Nicholas Braun, who delivers much of the comic relief at Succession with his bumblebees as cousin Greg, could not have looked more unlike his character with his stylish yellow cashmere coat
Cozy: Brian Cox chose comfort with a navy double-breasted cardigan. He went all-in on patterns and mixed the ribbed sweater with brown plaid pants and brown shoes
Nicholas Braun, who delivers much of the comic relief by succession with his bumbling antics as Cousin Greg, could not have looked more unlike his character with his stylish yellow cashmere coat.
The towering actor wore a sleek black sweater underneath and matching pants along with simple black shoes.
Brian Cox chose comfort with a navy blue double-breasted cardigan.

Alan Ruck, who plays the eldest son of the Roy family in succession, leaned into colors with a red patterned suit and a burgundy shirt.

Matthew Macfadyen, who plays Snook’s husband Tom Wambsgans, and stage veteran J. Smith-Cameron, who acts as the general adviser to business empire Waystar RoyCo, were also on the Late Show.
Earlier this week, HBO unveiled a new teaser for the third season of Succession, which premieres on October 17th.
The clip focuses on Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) as he leaves the explosive press conference from season two’s astonishing finale.
Fresh from betraying his father, the ailing media mogul Logan Roy (Cox), Kendall marches out to meet the music in the middle of a bunch of journalists.
‘Are you with me?’ Subsequent season three teasers reveal the aftermath of the cliffhanger finale as Kendall Roy prepares to battle his father. The series returns Oct. 17 on HBO
To give some comic relief, cousin Greg (Braun) starts yelling ‘no comment!’ at the press band, but he was quickly told to push by Waystar Royco, head of PR Karolina (Dagmara Dominczyk).
The drama begins when Karolina informs Kendall that he has opened the family business for lawsuits and investigations and questions why they use a company car to leave the press conference as he no longer works there.
‘Are you with me, yes or no?’ he asks Karolina and says he needs a ‘clean jar’ given his explosive statement.

‘Why did you do that, Ken?’ she asks, before turning to Gregg to ask if he was in it too.
‘This is a fork in your life Karolina,’ Kendall offers, adding: ‘This is your fair vehicle.’

Logan then went into a blazing rage as the bitter corporate battle appears to be ready to rage on in season three.
