‘Succession’ Season 4 Trailer: Brian Cox Says Goodbye to Logan Roy
Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Nicholas Braun and their ensemble cast take their final bows in the Emmy-winning viral HBO series.
“Succession” is nearing its Shakespearean end. The only question besides to be or not to be: Will the Emmy-winning series inevitably be a tragedy or a comedy?
The battle between Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his children, played by Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin and Alan Ruck, finally comes to an end with the fourth and final season. The season 4 logo reads: The sale of the Waystar Royco media conglomerate to Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) is getting closer. The prospect of this seismic sale causes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal goes through. A power struggle ensues as the family considers a future where their cultural and political weight has been greatly diminished.
Meanwhile, Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) and Tom (Matthew McFayden) share their enthusiasm for Logan’s plan and revel in their new Season 3 alliance.
Breakout star Strong recently admitted that the final season will feel like “death” as he replaces his iconic character, man-child Kendall Roy.
The ‘Armageddon Time’ actor added: ‘When I was younger, I saw the future in the crosshairs. I don’t feel that anymore. There is a sense of “now what?” to which I have no answer.”
“Succession” is also created and executive produced by Jesse Armstrong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Jane Tranter, director Mark Mylod, Tony Roche, Scott Ferguson, Jon Brown, Lucy Prebble, Will Tracy and Will Ferrell. EPs.
“Succession” writer and executive producer Georgia Pritchett said back in 2021 that the series would most likely end after four seasons. Creator Armstrong recently announced that season 4 is officially the end of the Waystar Royco saga.
“There is a promise in the title of ‘succession.’ I never thought it could last forever,” Armstrong told The New Yorker. “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?
Showrunner Armstrong continued, “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 it was definitely my favorite. The decision about the ending was solidified during the writing and even when we started shooting: I said to 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.
The first three seasons of “The Succession” garnered 48 Emmy nominations and 13 wins, including Outstanding Drama Series in seasons two and three. Season 3, which premiered in October 2021, won a SAG Award for Drama Ensemble and was a sweep at the WGA, DGA and PGA.
