'Industry' Adds HBO Favorite Kit Harington to Season 3 Cast

The cast of Industry Season 2

The cast of Industry Season 2


The BBC-HBO co-production Industry, which follows a group of interns competing to be hired at the prestigious investment bank in London, Pierpoint & Co, is finally bidding for audience attention. The series, which is best viewed as a cross between Succession's cutthroat insult power plays and Euphoria's drug use and bed-hopping, debuted in November 2020 on HBO, HBO Max, and BBC 2, during the era where AT&T owned WarnerMedia, and assumed it didn't actually have to market shows for audiences to find them. The result has been a show that's done well in the U.K. but flown completely under the radar over here — at least until now.

Industry has always has a large roster due to its ensemble nature and has turned over cast every season as a result. Season 2, which was renewed on the heels of the Season 1 finale, added eight new characters and upped four more from guest stars to the regular cast. Season 3, which was also renewed as soon as Season 2 concluded, is gearing up to start filming by the end of April 2023, and looks to be doing the same, starting with the addition of Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) in a prominent role, the show's most high-profile addition to date. 

According to the BBC press release, Harington is joining the cast as "Henry Muck," who is described as "the CEO and Founder of Lumi, an exciting green tech energy company about to go public." While his addition may finally get Americans to catch on to the show (or at least convince someone to promote it better), it is most likely a one-season wonder character, as Harington is also slated to star in a possible forthcoming Game of Thrones sequel centered around his character, which his production company will also be co-producing. 

Here's the synopsis for Industry's upcoming season, which arrived as part of the Harington casting announcement.

In series three, as Pierpoint looks to the future and takes a big bet on ethical investing, the desk find themselves front and centre in the splashy IPO of Lumi, a green tech energy company – in a story that runs all the way to the very top of finance, media, and government.

The core cast of Industry are all expected to return, including the intern class of Marisa Abela (COBRA) as Yasmin Kara-Hanani, Myha'la Herrold (Bodies, Bodies, Bodies) as Harper Stern, David Jonsson (Rye Lane) as Gus Sackey, and Harry Lawtey (The Letter for the King) as Robert Spearing. In the higher-ups, Mark Dexter (The Crown) as Hilary Wyndham, Conor MacNeill (Derry Girls) as Kenny Kilbane, Ken Leung (Lost) as Eric Tao, Sarah Parish (Broadchurch) as Nicole Craig, and Andrew Buchan (The Spanish Princess) as Felim Bichan are all expected to return as well.

Series creators Mickey Down and Konrad Kay continue to pen all episodes and executive produce along with Bad Wolf, Jane Tranter, Kate Crowther, and Rebecca Ferguson for the BBC. Directors for Season 3 have not been announced as yet; the series will continue to run eight episodes a season.

Industry Season 3 is expected to premiere in late 2023 or early 2024. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on HBO Max.
