‘Succession’ is one of the most well-received shows ever made, with the show winning 4 Emmys at the 2022 Primetime Emmys including the award for Outstanding Drama Series. With that being said, the eagerly anticipated new season of the show is all set to premiere on March 26 but unfortunately, this could be the end of the show.
On January 26, a new teaser trailer for the eagerly anticipated fourth season was made available with the video teasing Logan being opposed by the Roy trio and the consequences of Tom’s betrayal. With their father, the Roy siblings do not have an easy road ahead of them and the entire situation, according to Kendall, is a “tightrope walk on a straight razor.” Gerri, apparently addressing Roman, says in the teaser, “You cannot win. Your dad will wash you away.”
HBO has not yet made any official announcements regarding whether or not Season 4 of Succession will be the series’ last. But Jeremy Strong’s most recent interview gives a hint that season 4 might be the last. “I have a broad-strokes sense of things,” he told GQ about filming season 4.
“But this season, I didn’t want to know more. What I can say is I’m on the rack… I feel a sense of really wanting to, now that we’re at the one-yard line, finish this season and possibly the show, in a way that delivers a real payload of what this journey has been. I still hope that there are rungs on the ladder that are redemptive for Kendall.”
After the nine-episode season 3, Succession season 4 will have ten episodes, giving fans a bonus episode. The official logline for season 4 reads,
“The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson moves ever closer. The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is completed. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”
Brian Cox will reprise his role as Logan Roy in Season 4 of Succession, along with Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, Sarah Snook as Shiv Roy, Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans, Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch, Alan Ruck as Connor Roy, and J. Smith-Cameron as Gerri Kellman. A number of the original cast members are also returning, including Peter Friedman, Dagmara Dominczyk, Justine Lupe, David Rasche, Fisher Stevens, Hiam Abbass, Scott Nicholson, Jeannie Berlin, and Zo Winters.
