Since season 3 of Succession bowed in December, we have been desperate to learn in regards to the way forward for the critically adored HBO drama. And the way could we not, after a bombshell ending like that? In the event you need a (spoiler-filled) refresher, siblings Kendall, Roman, and Shiv Roy finally banded together to stop their father Logan from selling Waystar-Royco to the streaming service GoJo, but their plan failed—partly due to a gutting betrayal by Shiv’s husband, Tom Wambsgans.
With Tom as a surprising underdog and the Roy kids licking their wounds (once more), where could Succession go in season 4? Here’s what we all know.
Will there be a season 4?
HBO renewed Succession for a fourth season about per week after season 3 premiered. On the time, network execs voiced their confidence within the hit drama.
“With each season of Succession, [creator] Jesse Armstrong has continued to surpass our wildest expectations, pulling us deeper into the Roy family’s inner sanctum with indelible wit, humanity, and precision,” Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming, said in a press release. “This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store on this next season ahead.”
What is going to Succession season 4 be about?
HBO shared an official synopsis for the upcoming 10 episodes, which is able to follow the Roy family facing “existential angst and familial division” because the GoJo deal approaches. (Lovely. What else are we here for?)
“Within the ten-episode season 4, 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 many Roys as they anticipate what their lives will appear to be once the deal is accomplished. An influence struggle ensues because the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”
Who’s within the solid this season?
Here’s who’s confirmed to return, per HBO: Brian Cox (Logan Roy), Jeremy Strong (Kendall Roy), Sarah Snook (Shiv Roy), Kieran Culkin (Roman Roy), Alan Ruck (Connor Roy), Matthew Macfadyen (Tom Wambsgans), Nicholas Braun (Cousin Greg), J. Smith-Cameron (Gerri), Peter Friedman (Frank), David Rasche (Karl), Fisher Stevens (Hugo), Hiam Abbass (Marcia Roy), Justine Lupe (Willa), Scott Nicholson (Colin, the safety guard), Zoë Winters (Kerry, Logan’s assistant), and Jeannie Berlin (Cyd).
There are still more casting announcements to come back.
When does filming begin?
Filming is already underway in Latest York City, HBO announced on June 27. The network shared a behind-the-scenes photo of a clapperboard for season 4, episode 1, which is directed by Mark Mylod, who has previously worked on the series.
Succession season 4 is officially filming.
Production appears to be right on schedule. Brian Cox previously told GQ UK that it was “roughly the plan” to start out shooting in June 2022, after the writers were slated to reconvene in January.
Armstrong had also told Variety on May 8 that the writing stage was almost complete. “We’re almost done with the writing for season 4, here in London, with the American writers coming over,” he told the outlet. “They’re a extremely great group of individuals to speak in regards to the nuances of character and the world and what we’re doing on the show.”
Will there be more seasons after that?
In the event you’re already concerned about where the Roys find yourself in 2022 and beyond, there’s some excellent news. It seems like there is a likelihood we could get much more chapters of the HBO hit. Author and executive producer Georgia Pritchett was interviewed by U.K. newspaper The Times, where she said there may very well be as many as five seasons because showrunner Jesse Armstrong has “a very good end in sight.”
“I believe the utmost could be five seasons, but possibly more like 4,” said Pritchett.
Armstrong previously told The Latest Statesman, though, that the show won’t go on for “too long.” “There’s going to be a really definite moment when that story is over,” he said. “And it might’t go on too long. I believe there’ll be an end for me on this incarnation of the show in…” He added after a pause, “In a bit.”
And in his temporary Variety interview, the showrunner hinted at the longer term of the series: “I won’t answer that one precisely. I don’t think it should go on without end. But we’re still having fun in the intervening time,” he said.
