Are you prepared for Succession to consume your weekly Sundays? The HBO series is bringing back the dysfunctional Roys for one more season, and it will be the last. Last year and again in 2020, it won the Emmy for best drama series.
According to HBO, Season 4 will pick up directly after Season 3’s conclusion, with the sale of Waystar Royco drawing closer by the day. It will feature Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, and 2022 Emmy winner Matthew Macfadyen, among many others, and will consist of 10 episodes.
About the “Succession” Series
Succession is an American television drama that debuted in June 2018 on HBO. Jesse Armstrong, who is also known for his work on the British comedy series Peep Show, conceived the series. Succession revolves around the Roy family, who own and administer Waystar Royco, a multinational media and entertainment conglomerate.
The series follows the Roy family as they navigate power disputes and internal conflicts as they prepare for Logan Roy’s eventual retirement. As Logan’s health begins to decline, his four offspring, Kendall, Roman, Shiv, and Connor, jockey for positions in the company and vie for his approval.
Succession’s outstanding ensemble cast, which includes Brian Cox as Logan Roy, Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, Sarah Snook as Shiv Roy, Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, and Alan Ruck as Connor Roy, is one of its most notable features.
The writing is sharp, witty, and frequently profoundly humorous, and the performances are uniformly outstanding.
Succession has been lauded for its representation of wealth, power, and family dynamics, and has been compared to other television programs such as Game of Thrones and Mad Men. The show has been praised for its exploration of the dark side of the ultra-rich and its portrayal of frequently morally ambiguous and profoundly flawed characters.
Succession Season 4 Release Date
HBO has just released the latest trailer for the upcoming fourth season of its hit show Succession, revealing how the highly dysfunctional Roy family is coping with the catastrophic aftermath of their failed coup against their father’s company at the end of Season 3.
In addition, HBO has revealed that the fourth season premiered on March 26, presumably before the Emmy eligibility window closes.
The second and third seasons of the show won the Emmy Award for Best Drama Series, putting the fourth season in contention as The Last of Us concludes its first season in March.
Before the conclusion of Season 3, the Roy siblings Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), and Roman (Kieran Culkin) had teamed up to prevent the sale of Waystar-Royco to Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard), and his company, GoJo.
However, their cunning father Logan (Brian Cox) got the upper hand by having their mother sign the contract, securing a massive payout for himself and leaving his children with nothing.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, he had assistance from Shiv’s husband Tom (Matthew McFadyen), who tipped off Logan to their attempted coup and thereby secured a seat at the table.
