What is Succession Season 4 About?
HBO has released the official description for the final season, which reads, “In the 10-episode season four, 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 complete. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”
The show stars Brian Cox as Logan Roy, Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch, Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, Peter Friedman as Frank Vernon, Natalie Gold as Rava Roy, Hiam Abbass as Marcia Roy, Alan Ruck as Connor Roy, Sarah Snook as Siobhan “Shiv” Roy, Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, and Dagmara Domińczyk as Karolina Novotney.
Will the Show End After Season 4?
In February, it was announced that Succession would come to an end with the fourth season. Announcing the development, Jesse Armstrong said, “Who knows about the psychological reasons, but the creative ones were that it felt really useful not to make the final, final decision for ages. You know, 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. I got together with a few of my fellow writers before we started the writing of season 4, in about November, December 2021, and I sort of said, ‘Look, I think this maybe should be it. But what do you think?’”
“We played out various scenarios: We could do a couple of short seasons, or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete. The decision to end solidified through the writing and even when we started filming: I said to the cast, ‘I’m not a hundred per cent sure, but I think this is it.’ Because I didn’t want to bullshit them,” the creator added.
