Bad News, ‘Succession’ Is Ending with Season 4
Who would have guessed that a show set in boardrooms and European villas would become the next Game of Thrones? Not me, but here we are! Succession was renewed for season 4, and that season is right around the corner. But unfortunately, this season of the show will be its last. Showrunner Jesse Armstrong confirmed in a recent interview that the show will be fucking right off, as the characters would say.
It’s time to start thinking about the endgame—and I don’t mean “endgame” like whether or not Gerri and Roman or Greg and Tom will finally kiss. I’m talking about who is actually going to end up on top once this is all over.
What do we know about season 4?
I'll reiterate while trying to dry my eyes from the tears, but this will be the last season. Here's the trailer, and it looks like the characters are IN for it.
I'm cackling at Logan telling his kids they're not serious people. He's right!! It seems like the writers and cast knew this would be the last season, they just didn't announce that until recently. So you just know that the ending is going to be some epic Shakespearean sh*t. Might as well crank the Nicholas Britell so you’ll have something to vibe out to in the meantime.
It's interesting that the show is ending considering how successful it's been. At the season 3 premiere, according to Deadline, HBO’s head of content Casey Bloys likened the show to a child—an iconic choice of metaphor given Succession’s rampant daddy issues. “If you have kids, this is kind of like a very bright, very gifted, very attractive child who goes to an Ivy League school and does cancer research and falls in love with someone from a very wealthy family and wants to spend every weekend with you and maybe name their kid after you. So no favorites, but a very, very nice child to have.” Who does he think he is, Logan??
When will season four premiere?
March 26! And in addition to that big trailer above, HBO had previously released this teaser trailer to give us a glimpse on how things are going in the Roy family after that shocking reveal.
