Family drama series ‘Succession’ to end with season 4 on HBO

The fourth season of the well-liked satirical family drama “Succession” will be its last, according to the show’s creator Jesse Armstrong. In an interview, Armstrong revealed the information and stated that the fourth season, scheduled to debut on March 26, will mark the show’s conclusion.

“There’s a promise in the title of ‘Succession’. I’ve never thought this could go on forever. The end has always been kind of present in my mind. From season two, I’ve been trying to think: Is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?” Armstrong said in the piece, titled ‘The End of ‘Succession’ Is Near’.


The television series “Succession” centres on media mogul Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his four children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin), and Connor (Alan Ruck), as they vie for control of the Waystar Royco family’s media empire.

Armstrong claimed that since late 2021, he and his colleagues writers have been preparing for the end of the show.

“And we played out various scenarios: We could do a couple of short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could go on for ages and turn the show into something rather different, and be a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show, where there would be good weeks and bad weeks.

“Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference,” he added. Armstrong, who co-created hits shows ‘Peep Show’ and ‘Fresh Meat” in the UK, admitted feeling “conflicted” about ending the show.

“I feel sad, and I have the-circus-has-left-town feeling that everyone gets who works on a production that’s good, and this one particularly so. I imagine I’ll be a little bit lonely, and wandering the streets of London in a funk, and wondering, ‘what the f*** did I do?’ I’ll probably be calling you up in about six months asking if people are ready for a reboot,” he added. The fourth and final season of the Emmy-winning series will follow on from the events of the third season finale in December 2021.

“The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard) 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 complete.”A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed,” the logline read.

Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, J. Smith-Cameron, Peter Friedman, David Rasche, Fisher Stevens, Hiam Abbass, Justine Lupe, Dagmara Dominczyk, Arian Moayed, Scott Nicholson, and Zoe Winters are among the recurring cast members. Annabeth Gish, Adam Godley, Eili Harboe, and Johannes Haukur Johannesson are the newcomers.
