Season 4 is just around the corner – and it looks like the return of the most dysfunctional TV family will be suitably explosive.
Showrunner Jesse Armstrong’s fictionalized take on Murdoch’s media empire is dark, dramatic, and often fun, blending tension and comedy in a way rarely seen on screen. The series’ third season, released in October 2021, continues to prove why Succession is one of HBO Max’s best shows.
After developing something iconic in recent years (1.7 million people caught the season’s final finale), it’s no surprise that Armstrong’s series was swiftly lit green by HBO for its fourth appearance, and we’re excited to see future episodes intend to tie up the loose ends left by season 3 explosive cliffhanger

Season 4 of Succession release date

Judging from the time it takes to film each season, the earliest we expect season 4 to arrive in succession is March 2023. At the latest, we expect the show to return in May 2023, after HBO director Casey Bloys said Deadline (opens in a new tab) – ahead of the above-mentioned release window announcement – that the entire season will air in time for next year’s Emma Eligibility Date (May 2023).
As always, Season 4 of Succession will be broadcast on HBO Max (or whatever the Warner Bros. Discovery streamer is called) in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK. Depending on the release date, European viewers can also enjoy success thanks to the continued availability of Warner Bros. platforms. Discovery across the continent.
Season of Succession 4 cast
HBO has officially confirmed that Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun and J. Smith-Cameron will be cast again. roles.
Their involvement in new episodes was made public in June, although it was not that surprising. After all, the Succession drama is completely dependent on exploring the twisted relationships between characters in his central Roy family (clue is in the show’s name). Future episodes would struggle to maintain the show’s attractive tensions if even one member left the fight.
We also know that fringe characters such as Willa (Justine Lupe) and Stewy (Arian Moayed) will return in Season Four of Succession, while Ewan actor James Cromwell is also set to reprise his role.
While many of these characters do not play a direct role in influencing the show’s crux question – who will inherit Logan Roy’s media empire? – almost all of them have very special relationships with some members of the Roy family, which reveal more about the motivations of the show’s main actors; they are therefore important pieces of the succession puzzle.
The same goes for tech entrepreneur Alexander Skarsgard, Lukas Matsson. At the end of season 3, Logan Roy – in a move that shocked his kids – seemed to strike a deal with Matsson to relinquish Waystar Royco’s power in exchange for a paycheck. Given that this decision could lie at the heart of the Season 4 storyline, it’s no surprise that Skarsgård’s involvement in future Succession episodes has been confirmed (via GQ (opens in a new tab)).
It’s less clear whether Adrien Brody, who briefly starred in season three as billionaire investor Josh Aaronson, will reprise his role. The Aaronson was used as the ship through which Succession showrunners sought to challenge Logan’s competence as senior general manager. Once this goal is accomplished, it’s hard to imagine where Brody could lead the character further.
Even so, even if Brody doesn’t return as Aaronson, we won’t be surprised to see more A-listers enter the Succession conference rooms as new characters in Season 4. HBO has confirmed that the “additional cast [members are set] to be announced “.
A story about the 4th season of succession
After Kendall’s betrayal and Logan’s insane quest for revenge in Season 2 of Succession, last year’s episodes focused attention on each of the Roy siblings in equal measure, giving actors Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, and Kieran Culkin a place to tighten (sometimes induce) their muscles.
Season 4 looks set to continue in that spirit, following Logan’s dramatic decision to consider Matsson’s bid, which has made the sibling trio more united (against their father) than ever.
Of course, Kendall, Shiv, and Roman believe their father’s desire to relinquish family control of Waystar Royco was an act of treason. For three seasons, viewers have watched as siblings insult themselves about which of them is best suited to inheriting their father’s company – it follows that neither of them wants it to fall into the hands of outsiders.
This conflict is likely to lead to the plot of Season 4 of Succession. Other narrative plots are more difficult to pin down, although we expect Shiv’s unconventional marriage to Tom to be in the spotlight again after he cheated on his wife in exchange for Logan’s favor.
At least that’s what he wants to believe in the Cliff’s Season 3 finale – we don’t yet know the full extent of Tom’s role in the betrayal, or how much Greg played a role in alerting Logan to his children’s plans to sabotage the deal with Matsson. .
For example, Sarah Snook is excited to find out more. She said SiriusXM (opens in a new tab): “I have no idea [where the show is going with that incident]. I can’t wait to start shooting again because I want to know what’s going to happen.
Following the final shot of season 3 – which suggests Shiv knows what Tom has done – Snook added: “I feel like Shiv is really strong because he knows the information and can then decide whether to disclose it. She could choose not to tell her siblings, and she could also choose not to tell Tom that she knew … […] But it has to start a fire [within her]”.
However, now – and for the first time in the show’s history – it looks like Season 4 will start with Kendall, Shiva and Roman against everyone else.
Regarding Connor’s role in the upcoming Succession episodes, it looks like the wedding to Willa Justine Lupe is on the cards. In the image below you can see a large banner “Ferreyr and Connor Roy” scattered around the dock building that logically will host the introductory shot, the couple’s rehearsal dinner or the wedding proper.
Connor’s quest for the presidency could also create his own narrative that could pave the way for the return of Justin Kirk’s far-right Congressman Jeryd Mencken among other politically inclined figures.
But the crux of the fourth season of succession will of course revolve around Matsson’s proposed takeover of the Roy family business. Indeed, the official HBO season summary reads as follows: “In ten episodes of Season 4, the sale of the Waystar Royco media conglomerate to tech visionary Lukas Matsson is getting closer. The prospect of this seismic sale creates existential anxiety and family division among the Roys who predict what their lives will be like after the deal is completed. A power struggle ensues as the family ponders a future in which their cultural and political weight is severely reduced. ”
In any case, given that HBO director Francesca Orsi stated in her official renewal announcement that “Jesse Armstrong [continues] to exceed our wildest expectations ”with each new season of succession, we expect to be surprised by the inevitable twists and turns of Season 4.
Season 4 Succession Trailer
HBO released the first official trailer for the fourth season of Succession in October 2022. Check it out below.
Before releasing the first full-length trailer for the Succession season, HBO gave fans a glimpse of the show’s new episodes during the sizzling reel of HBO Max 2023.
Check out the teaser below, which includes some clips that are not in the main season trailer between 1:30 AM and 1:40 AM:
The future of the series
As for whether or not Season 4 will be the last of the series, we’re confident it won’t. While HBO made no mention of the seasons in a press release announcing the show’s renewal, interviews with the cast and crew members calmed (relatively) our minds.
The main character of the show, Brian Cox, for example, who plays the boss of the family Logan Roy, he said GQ (opens in a new tab) that he expects “maybe two more series, and then I think we’re done.”
The show’s executive producer Georgia Pritchett shared the sentiment by revealing The Times (opens in a new tab) Last year, he believes the succession is unlikely to extend beyond five seasons. “I think the maximum is five seasons, but probably more like four,” she said, “at this point [Jesse Armstrong] only says one more. “
Indeed, show creator Armstrong has admitted he wants the show to end. “There will be a very definite point in time for this story to end, and it can’t be too long,” he said New statesman (opens in a new tab).
Armstrong repeated the line at the BAFTA TV Awards in 2022. When asked how long he intended to continue the program, he told reporters: “I will not answer that question exactly. I don’t think it should be forever. But at the moment we are still having a good time. “
Not even HBO director Casey Bloys knows about the future of Succession. “For these conversations, we really leave it to the showrunners,” he said Deadline (opens in a new tab) in July. “Jesse is clearly wondering what season four is going to be like and will decide if he sees it going beyond that or not.” “.
So there’s definitely a chance we’ll be treated to Season 5 of Succession after Season 4 – giving Logan plenty of time to designate the successor to his massive media empire.
