Industry Season 3 Official Episode Count and Streaming Options
The new season is confirmed to have 8 episodes with a runtime of 49 to 52 minutes, which will be released weekly. On the other hand, the exact titles and synopsis of the episodes are not released in advance to avoid early spoilers. But we are certain it will be published once the new episodes are due to air on the streaming service. So, we would advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued in the coming months.
The series will air on MAX in the United States and will be available to stream in 4K resolution on HBO Max and BBC Two in the UK. Moreover, membership on the platform is available with the option of an ad-supported plan or an ad-free plan. It is also available to stream by renting or purchasing on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu. The viewers can select membership plans as per their preferences and enjoy the series without any hassle.
We would also like to highlight that the network has not yet published an official trailer, even though the production was not suspended by the WGA and SAG strikes, as the series’ talent is working under the UK-based union Equity.
In the meantime, catch up with the second season, which has gotten critical acclaim with a 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 25 reviews, with an average rating of 8.10/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Finessing complicated financial jargon into scathing repartee, Industry‘s stock is way up in this superlative sophomore series full of frustrated ambitions and tested loyalties.”
Lastly, the synopsis of the series is as follows:
“Industry gives an insider’s view of the black box of high finance following a group of young bankers as they forge their identities within the pressure-cooker environment and sex and drug-fuelled blitz of international bank Pierpoint & Co’s London office. In season two our grads are no longer allowed to hide behind their graduate status. The market is ripping, and Pierpoint’s back to work or else mandate has the trading floor more charged up and paranoid than ever.”
