“Succession” ends with its upcoming 4th season on HBO
Series creator Jesse Armstrong announced the news in an interview with The New Yorker on Thursday.
The Roy family drama is coming to an end. “Succession” creator Jesse Armstrong revealed in an interview with The New Yorker on Thursday that the series’ upcoming fourth season will be its last on HBO.
Season 4 of “Succession” will debut on HBO next month on March 26, and the series first aired in 2018. Armstrong previously teased that the series could end with either season four or season five.
“There is a promise in the title of ‘succession.’ I never thought it could last forever,” he told The New Yorker on Thursday. “The end was always in my mind. From season 2 onwards, I was thinking: Is this the next one, or the one after that, or the one after that?
Armstrong said that he began to consider ending the show as early as 2021 when writing the fourth season, but he toyed with many options for how the show might or might not continue, but he never wanted to let his writing staff lead more than the audience.
“We could do a couple of short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could continue the series and turn the show into something completely different and be a more airy, freewheeling entertainment show with good weeks and bad weeks. Or we could do something more muscular and full and go out something strong. And that was definitely my favorite,” he said. “The decision about the ending was solidified during the writing and even when we started shooting: I told the cast, ‘I’m not 100 percent in it, but I think this is it.’ Because I didn’t want to bully them – neither did they.
“Succession” won 19 Emmys on HBO, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2020 and 2022. Armstrong even landed an overall deal with HBO on the back of the series’ acclaim, which was HBO’s tentpole on HBO. also the conclusions of “Game of Thrones” and “Veep.” The show stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Nicholas Braun, Kieran Culkin, Matthew Macfadyen and Sarah Snook, many of whom became household names in the process and have seen their stars rise over the years.
The third season of “Succession” came to a close with the Roy kids teaming up against their father, which Armstrong discusses in new detail, as well as what to expect or if we’ll see more of in the new season. these characters after “succession”.
“I think this succession story that we have told is complete. It’s the muscle season to exhaust our reserves of interest, and I think there’s some pain in these characters that are very strong,” Armstrong said. “But the feeling that there could be something else in an allied world, or allied characters, or some of the same characters — that’s strong for me, too. I forewarned the end of the show when I talked to some of my co-workers, like, Is there another part of this world we could go back to if we had an appetite? Maybe there’s something else that could be done that leverages what was good about how we worked on it. So that’s another true feeling.”
