The storyline delves deep into the interconnected realms of finance, media, and government, promising viewers a riveting journey to the heights of power and influence.

Meanwhile, Harper (Myha’la Herrold) returns with a renewed fervor for the adrenaline-fueled world of finance. After leaving Pierpoint, she partners with FutureDawn portfolio manager Petra Koenig, portrayed by Sarah Goldberg, setting the stage for dynamic new alliances and strategic maneuvers.

The returning cast for season three includes Myha’la Herrold, Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey, Ken Leung, Conor MacNeill, Sagar Radia, Indy Lewis, Adam Levy, Sarah Parish, Trevor White, Elena Saurel, and Irfan Shamji. New additions to the ensemble are Kit Harington as Henry Muck, Sarah Goldberg as Petra Koenig, 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.

The series is created, written, and executive produced by Mickey Down and Konrad Kay. “Industry” is a Bad Wolf Production for HBO/BBC, with Jane Tranter, Kate Crowther, and Ryan Rasmussen serving as executive producers for Bad Wolf, and Rebecca Ferguson for BBC. The third season’s directorial team includes Mickey Down, Konrad Kay, Isabella Eklöf, and Zoé Wittock.
