Much like Pierpoint & Co’s London office during the latest season of Industry (which concluded all the way back on September 19th, 2022), the TV show’s future was facing major uncertainty. But now, not only has the series since been renewed by HBO and BBC… as of late 2023, production on Industry season 3 has been completed.

This was, in large part, due to the fact that creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay had begun plotting the forthcoming instalment before they’d even received the official renewal order; Kay even revealed the duo had an extremely “good season 3 idea” on the burner shortly after season 2 finished airing/streaming.

From the release date to plot details, here’s everything we know about Industry season 3 so far (with first-look images sprinkled all throughout).

Has Industry season 3 been confirmed?

On October 26th, 2022, HBO greenlit Industry for season 3.

Industry reached new heights in season two, cementing its status as a buzzy hit with addictive storytelling, layered characters, a breakneck pace, and keen observations about contemporary workplace dynamics,” said Kathleen McCaffrey, Senior Vice President of HBO Programming.

“We’re incredibly proud of what Mickey and Konrad, Jami O’Brien, Jane Tranter and the team at Bad Wolf, together with our entire cast and crew, accomplished. We couldn’t be more excited to continue our journey with them into season three.”

As alluded to earlier, even before the renewal order came through, series creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay revealed they’d already been pounding energy drinks to get the writing process well underway.

“When it was first commissioned, HBO [the series is a co-production with the BBC] said that we had an opportunity, as new writers, to do something that was pretty against the grain — and they told us to lean into that,” Mickey Down told The Guardian.

“Hopefully, we’ll get to write this show for a while. Which will mean we can show how and why these people have suppressed so much of what is good in them.”

Worst case scenario, post-season 3, they shop this hot property to a competing network/streaming platform.

What will the third season of Industry be about?

According to the official synopsis: “In the eight-episode third season, as Pierpoint looks to the future and takes a big bet on ethical investing, Yasmin (Marisa Abela), Robert (Harry Lawtey), and Eric (Ken Leung) find themselves front and centre in the splashy IPO of Lumi, a green tech energy company led by Henry Muck (Kit Harington), in a story that runs all the way to the very top of finance, media, and government. Since leaving Pierpoint, Harper (Myha’la) is eager to get back into the addictive thrill of finance and finds an unlikely partner in FutureDawn portfolio manager Petra Koenig (Sarah Goldberg).”

Beyond this, the next season of Industry will also have to address a few key storylines…

Harper Stern goes solo

After facing dismissal from her position at Pierpoint & Co London due to the revelation she never actually graduated college, Harper must now operate as a lone wolf. There’s a wealth of opportunities in terms of narrative here, let’s just hope she doesn’t follow in the footsteps of her drug-addict brother John.

Yasmin Kara-Hanani goes broke

Without the safety net of her family’s money for the first time ever, Yasmin (Marisa Abela) will have to get acquainted with the real world. Already, she’s resorted to dine-and-dashing as opposed to eating somewhere remotely reasonable, or even admit she’s in financial strife to her former Foreign Exchange Sales Desk junior Venetia Berens (Indy Lewis). Plus, there’s the matter of being functionally homeless. Though based on the early previews, she’s still managed to make it onto a yatch or two…

Industry Season 3 Release Date Confirmed — Here's A First Look

The adventures of Gus Sackey & Jesse Bloom

For providing a certain piece of intel which has resulted in yet another epic windfall, and getting his son Leo Bloom (Sonny Poon Tip) accepted into the prestigious Oxford University via backchannel means, billionaire Jesse Bloom (Jay Duplass) has rewarded Gus (David Jonsson) with a sweet gig as his personal assistant slash 2IC. Where Bloom takes the blue-blooded Etonian and Oxford alum is anyone’s guess.

The (mis)adventures of Robert Spearing & Nicole Craig

Although he made something of a stand after Nicole (Sarah Parish) bailed him out of jail for cocaine possession, it appears as though Robert (Harry Lawtey) is still keen to explore his mummy issues by continuing the affair with an extremely handsy client.

Eric Tao — Master of War

There’s much debate about whether Eric’s (Ken Leung) dismissal of Harper was:

  1. Revenge for tanking his deal with the company’s biggest client, Felim Bichan (Andrew Buchan), in favour of new business, i.e. Jesse Bloom
  2. An insurance policy to prevent future backstabbings from Harper
  3. Or to simply protect Harper from potential criminal charges, i.e. insider trading

Whatever the case, given what he knows about Bloom’s Rican-Fast Aid double dip and all the sexual assault incidents Pierpoint chief Bill Adler (Trevor White) has attempted to bury, the man who was ostensibly on his way out effectively has everyone in his pocket.

Industry Season 3 Is Already Being Written Before HBO Renewal - cast, release date, trailer

Conrad Kay previously noted the intentionally cranked pacing of the second season was intended to maximise the audience’s experience; which appears to be the same philosophy adopted for Industry season 3:

“We had a rule that we had to burn our best plot ideas as quickly as possible. Hold nothing back. Every episode should feel like a finale. We hate how slow most modern TV is.”

Do we know the Industry season 3 cast members?

The Industry season 3 cast will re-welcome the following:

  • Marisa Abela as Yasmin Kara-Hanani
  • Myha’la Herrold as Harper Stern
  • David Jonsson as Gus Sackey
  • Harry Lawtey as Robert Spearing
  • Ken Leung as Eric Tao
  • Sagar Radia as Rishi Ramdani
  • Sarah Parish as Nicole Craig
  • Conor MacNeill as Kenny Kilbane
  • Nicholas Bishop as Maxim Alonso
  • Katrine De Candole as Celeste Pacquet
  • Jay Duplass as Jesse Bloom
  • Adam Levy as Charles Hanani
  • Potentially Alex Alomar Akpobome as Danny Van Deventer a la Priyanga Buford as a scorned Sara Dhadwal

It’s unclear whether Hilary Wyndham (Mark Dexter) and Jackie Walsh (Caoilfhionn Dunne) survived Pierpoint London’s mass personnel culling. Or whether Hilary survived hospitalisation, despite his best efforts to avoid illness.

On the matter of newcomers, season 3 will welcome HBO alum Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) as Henry Muck, CEO and Founder of green tech energy company Lumi; and Sarah Goldberg (Barry) as Petra Koenig, a portfolio manager at ethical investment fund FutureDawn.

You can also expect Miriam Petche as Sweetpea Golightly, Andrew Cavill as Lord Norton, Roger Barclay as Otto Mostyn, Fady Elsayed as Ali El Mansour, and Fiona Button as Denise Oldroyd.

Is there an Industry season 3 trailer?

Similar to the release date, Industry season 3 (obviously) doesn’t have a trailer, either — but we’ll be sure to update you when HBO finally uploads it to YouTube and the like.

There is, however, a short preview clip included in HBO Max’s The Ones To Watch In 2024 sizzle reel below featuring a rather sultry Kit Harrington’s Henry Muck ostensibly having a red-hot crack at Marisa Abela’s Yasmin Kara-Hanani in an illuminated pool of some kind (0:45).

There’s also a handful of first-look images (see: above & below).
