L-to-the-OMG, ‘Succession’ Season 4 Has Officially Begun Filming

succession season 3 tom betrayal when is season 4 of succession coming out

It’s been six long months since Succession aired its Season 3 finale. We’ve been waiting patiently and, finally, we have good news: cameras have officially begun rolling, which means Season 4 is on its way.

In a spectacular cliffhanger, Season 3 ended with a breathtaking betrayal for the ages. We watched with jaws agape as Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) finally got on the same page — one that said ‘let’s oust Dad and take over the Waystar Royco company once and for all’, only to have their plans thwarted by a well-timed tip-off from Shiv’s very own husband, Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen).

As we move into Season 4, the siblings will have to figure out their next move as Logan prepares to sell Waystar Royco and leave them out in the cold.

Succession is one of HBO’s critical darlings — the first two seasons of the series had over 23 Emmy nominations and 9 wins, including Outstanding Drama Series for the second season.

Created by Jesse Armstrong, Succession is executive produced by an all-star lineup, which includes Armstong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod, Tony Roche, Scott Ferguson, Jon Brown, Lucy Prebble, Will Tracy, and Will Ferrell. Jesse Armstrong also serves as showrunner on Succession.
