Along with the announcement that Succession season 4 is underway, HBO released an outline that details how the new season will follow the events of December's shocking finale.

The season four logline reads: "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 Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is completed. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed."
