Succession remains one of the best dramas on HBO and the third season just ended with a huge moment that shook up everything.

With Roy screwing over all his kids and leaving them high and dry in the season finale, the next season should be the most intense yet for the show.

With the drama, which also plays out as a dark comedy, finished up with this season, fans are anxiously awaiting news on the next season, wanting to watch this family continue to try to ruin each other’s lives.

Here is everything we know so far about Succession Season 4.

This article provides everything that is known about Succession Season 4 and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s dig down into what is known so far.

Is there going to be a Season 4 of Succession?

The good news is that HBO announced there would be a fourth season just days before Season 3 kicked off.

“With each season of Succession, 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,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president, HBO Programming.

“This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead.”

There is also no word on how many more seasons Succession will last on HBO, although creator Jesse Armstrong said there is an end in sight.

“All I know is there’s a promise in the ‘Succession’ title, and it can’t go on forever,” Armstrong said. “It’s important for me, I think, as a showrunner to have a pitch for my fellow collaborators, especially the writers,” he said. “But it’s not immutable. That’s up for discussion. But I do have a pitch for how I think it goes.”

Release date latest: When does Succession Season 4 come out?

There is no word on when Succession could return for a fourth season on HBO.

It is also hard to tell when it could arrive based on the schedule of the first three seasons. There was almost a two-year wait between the second and third season because of the coronavirus pandemic shutting down production.

Succession Season 1 premiered on June 3, 2018. Season 2 arrived just over a year after Season 1’s finale, hitting HBO on August 11, 2019.

Succession Season 3 then hit on October 17, 2021.

If the shooting schedule is similar to the one between the first and second seasons, Succession Season 4 should hit in late 2022, or possibly early 2023.

We will update this article when HBO delivers more information about Succession Season 4.

Succession Season 4 cast updates

Brian Cox stars as the media mogul and gruff octogenarian patriarch Logan Roy, with Jeremy Strong (Kendall), Sarah Snook (Siobhan), Kieran Culkin (Roman), and Alan Ruck (Connor) playing his four grown children.

With the family at war after the Season 3 finale, expect all the major players to return.

Alan Ruck is Connor Roy, the only child from Logan Roy’s first marriage. Mostly removed from corporate affairs, he defers to his half-siblings on most firm-related matters.

Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, half-brother to Connor, and the middle child from Logan Roy’s second marriage. Roman is immature and does not take responsibilities seriously.

Jeremy Strong is Kendall Roy, half-brother to Connor and the eldest child from Logan Roy’s second marriage. Kendall has struggled to prove his worth to his father despite battling substance abuse and bungling major deals.

Sarah Snook is Siobhan “Shiv” Roy, Logan Roy’s youngest child and only daughter. 

Harriet Walter should also return in a big role as Logan’s ex-wife, Caroline, who sold out her kids in the Season 3 finale.

Also retuning should be Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans, Nicholas Braun as Cousin Greg, J. Smith Cameron as Gerri, Peter Friedman as Frank, and David Rasche as Karl.

Justine Lupe stars as Willa, Connor’s fiancee.

Taking a bigger role in Succession Season 4 should be Alexander Skarsgard, who showed up as tech entrepreneur Matsson, the man who bought out the company and destroyed the Roy children’s dreams.

Succession Season 4 spoilers

Succession tells the story of the Roy family members and their thirst for power of the world’s fifth-largest media conglomerate, Waystar Royco.

After two seasons of the Roy children plotting to take over their dad’s company, patriarch Logan Roy pulled the rug out from under them by selling it all in a major buyout.

This should change everything in Season 4 since Logan no longer has the business that defined him. More than that, he hung his kids out to dry and made sure they knew he thought very little of them.

The personal relationships also bear watching as the show rages on.

Shiv’s husband finally fought back against her, Gerri turned her back on Roman, and it seemed that Kendall was one step away from death the entire third season.

If anything, Succession Season 4 looks to be very messy.

HBO has yet to announce when Succession Season 4 will premiere.
