With the show’s current season ending, many fans are wondering about a Succession season 5 release date. Passionate viewers are unsurprisingly eager for another season, but should they get their hopes up? Here are the need-to-know details about a Succession season 5 release and any info about spin-offs.
Is there a Succession season 5 release date?
There will be no Succession season 5 release date. This is because the show has officially ended.
Speaking to the New Yorker, the show’s creator Jesse Armstrong confirmed that season 4 is the final season. Rather than stretch the show into more seasons, Armstrong says he and his team wanted to “go out sort of strong” with a more “muscular and complete” finale.
When Succession season 4 episode 10 airs, hopefully viewers are satisfied by its conclusion, as there are no more episodes planned. Idealy it will wrap up all of the loose ends and tie everything together nicely. Fingers crossed!
Will there be a Succession spin-off and other new episodes?
It’s very possible that there will be a Succession spin-off with new episodes.
In the same interview with the New Yorker, Armstrong mentioned how “there could be something else in an allied world, or allied characters, or some of the same characters.”
Clearly there is room for a Succession-based spin-off or aligning show in the future, whether that is soon or much further into the future. For Succession fans who want a deeper dive into the show’s universe, this is good news.
As for those who want Succession to be a standalone release and to be left perfect and untouched, Armstrong’s comments aren’t a guarantee that a spin-off will happen, so it’s possible that this will be the true end.
