The Roy family feud will continue for another season. HBO officially renewed its Emmy-winning series Succession yesterday, less than two weeks after its Season 3 premiere.
“With each season of Succession, Jesse Armstrong has continued to surpass our wildest expectations, pulling us deeper into the Roy family’s inner sanctum with indelible wit, humanity and precision. This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead,” Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO drama programming, said in a statement.
The drama returned this month after a two-year delay, continuing moments after failed heir Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) denounced his father, rotten media mogul Logan (Brian Cox), and claimed Waystar Royco for himself in a press conference ambush. Season 3 follows Kendall as he scrambles to secure alliances among his siblings Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin), who want the CEO position for themselves.
The premiere drew in more than 1.4 million viewers, marking the best premiere night of any HBO original series since HBO Max’s launch, per Deadline.
Now that Season 4 is confirmed, the big question is how long the show will continue. In a Variety interview ahead of Season 3, creator Armstrong said that, while he can’t give a number of seasons, he does have an idea for the series finale.
“I don’t want to say,” he said when asked how many seasons are remaining. “All I know is there’s a promise in the ‘Succession’ title, and it can’t go on forever.”
He continued, “It’s important for me, I think, as a showrunner to have a [series finale] pitch for my fellow collaborators, especially the writers. But it’s not immutable. That’s up for discussion. But I do have a pitch for how I think it goes.”
