‘Succession’ Has Officially Been Renewed for Season 4 and Not One Person Is Surprised

Succession Season 4

In news that will surprise precisely no one, Succession has been renewed for a fourth season.

The hit series stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun and Matthew Macfadyen and centres on the supremely wealthy and incredibly dysfunctional Roy family, the scions of one of the world’s biggest media conglomerates, Waystar Royco.

When the Roy patriarch, Logan, falls ill, his children begin vying for power as they fight for who will take control of the company. Needless to say, some shady business, backstabbing and double-dealing ensue.

Set in New York, the bitingly funny, critically acclaimed drama series explores themes of power, politics, money, and family, with the scheming Roy family taking centre stage.

Succession debuted in June 2018 and quickly cemented itself as one of the hottest new shows around. The series, which was created by Jesse Armstrong, has won seven Emmy Awards since its debut with Jeremy Strong (who plays Kendall Roy) winning for Best Lead Actor and the show itself winning for Best Drama Series.

The highly anticipated third season was delayed by pandemic-induced interruptions, meaning fans had to wait almost two years to catch up with the Roy family and their equally nasty cohorts.

The third season finally debuted on October 18 and picks up with Logan Roy (Brian Cox) is in crisis mode, after Kendall’s (latest) major betrayal of him at the end of season two. After being told by his father that he will never succeed him as the head of Waystar Royco because simply put, he is “not a killer”, Kendall (Strong) proves his dad spectacularly wrong setting up a third season in which Logan is out for blood.

Joining the already impressive ensemble in season three are Oscar winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) and Emmy winner Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies) along with Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, Jihae and Hope Davis.

As for how many seasons could follow after the fourth, Armstrong previously told Variety, “I don’t want to say,” adding, “All I know is there’s a promise in the Succession title, and it can’t go on forever.”

Season three of Succession is currently dropping weekly each Monday on BINGE and Foxtel and you can stream all episodes from seasons one and two on BINGE now.
