‘Succession’ to have its fourth and final season
Los Angeles –
The creators of the hit HBO series Succession have said the forthcoming fourth season will be their last.
Jesse Armstrong told The New Yorker in an article posted online Thursday that he wanted many fans of the show to know the end was near.
“I really like the idea creatively because the audience doesn’t have to try to figure things out or perceive things in a certain way once they know it’s the final season, and just enjoy everything as it is. Because we can,” said Armstrong.
“Succession” follows a wealthy family who owns a major media conglomerate and struggles to stay in power. Brian Cox stars as the patriarch of the Roy family, Jeremy Strong as one of his children, plotting to succeed his father as leader of the company.
HBO has confirmed that the fourth season, due to premiere next month, will be the last.
The show has won 13 Emmy Awards to date, including the 2020 and 2022 Armstrong Best Original Screenplay and Drama Series Awards.
“I never thought this would last forever. The end has always been in my mind,” Armstrong told The New Yorker. Is it the one, or the next, or the next?”
