Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the Roys are back for another round of skulduggery and betrayal. Here’s everything we know about Succession season 4, from the returning cast to the trailers to when we might be able to see the next season.
How did Succession season 3 end?
In the season 3 finale of Succession, Tom Wambsgans (and, by extension, Cousin Greg) backstabbed Shiv in order to gain Logan’s favour. This shocked both the audience and the cast. Waystar Royco’s shares were sold to GoJo by Logan with the help of Tom’s decision, leaving his three children—who had finally banded together to overthrow their father—in the cold.
According to Deadline, the season 3 finale was watched by 1.7 million viewers, a significant increase from the season 2 finale’s 1.2 million viewers.
Will there be a season 4 of Succession?
Yes! Just a week after the season 3 premiere, HBO announced that the show would be returning for a fourth season. “Jesse Armstrong has continued to exceed our wildest expectations, pulling us deeper into the Roy family’s inner sanctum with indelible wit, humanity, and precision,” Francesca Orsi, HBO’s Executive Vice President of Programming, said. This season is no exception, and we are beyond giddy with anticipation for what lies ahead in the years to come. We can expect by the end of 2022 in december.
When could season 4 of Succession premiere?
Succession’s second and third seasons were separated by a two-year hiatus, but that was due to the pandemic, not a lack of interest. Brian Cox, the show’s most reliable source of information, recently told GQ UK that production would begin again in June 2022, with writers returning to work in January 2022. It caught me off guard because I had assumed they’d be back in November.” In any case, I believe they could use a break. As a matter of fact, I believe that they do require some time away from the project because they’ve been working so hard on it,” Cox said.
What could happen in Succession season 4?
In an interview with Deadline, show creator Jesse Armstrong hinted that Tom’s decision may come back to haunt him because Logan isn’t one to be loyal or trustworthy. “There are plenty of writers’ room discussions before anything can be set in stone,” said Armstrong, who remained largely mum about specifics.”
“Soul-searching” is what actress Sarah Snook, who plays Shiv, said of the character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “My mother has deserted me. My father has been revealed to be a demon, and my husband has made a pact with him in order to gain his favour. So I’m out of options. How will I get back to my brothers? Where will they take me?”
On Greg’s decision to side with Tom in the finale, and how that may affect his character development, Armstrong talked to IndieWire about “We’ve already seen that Greg isn’t afraid to use his position of power and wealth to his advantage. Because he’s only had small amounts of it before.”
