In a nutshell:
Which actors are starring in Complete series season 4?
HBO has confirmed that all of Succession’s major characters will return for season four. These include Brian Cox as Logan Roy, Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy and Sarah Snook as Shiv. They will be joined by Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Meyer and Nicholas Braun as Greg both of whom are close friends to Logan and Roman. J Smith-Cameron will reprise her role as Gerri who remains interim CEO of the family company.
We’ll see more of Peter Friedman’s longtime advisor Frank; David Rasche’s slippery Karl; Fisher Stevens’s deadpan Hugo; Scott Nicholson’s ominous fixer Colin; Hiam Abbass’ mysterious Marcia; and Zoë Winters as his assistant Kerry, who he seemed to be having an affair with. Justine Lupe will be back, too, as Connor’s fiancée Willa, along with Jeannie Berlin’s Cyd, the cut-throat head of TV network ATN.
HBO has revealed that additional cast members will be revealed at a later date. It’s likely that Alexander Skarsgård’s eccentric tech entrepreneur Lukas Matsson, who joined the series in a recurring role last season, will be among them, and he may not be the only familiar face – after all, countless Hollywood A-listers have spoken about their desire to guest star on Succession.
What have we found out so far about the fourth season of Succession?
The third season of Waystar ended with a betrayal. After discovering that GoJo was on the verge of buying out Waystar, Kendall, Roman and Shiv joined forces to take Logan down and torpedo the deal. Shiv then shared their plan with Tom—a move that soon proved fatal. When Kendall and Shiv arrived at Logan’s war room, they learned that he’d already outmanoeuvred them, and later, Shiv caught a glimpse of Logan appearing to thank Tom.
The fourth season of Succession will pick up where the last left off. The official synopsis for the upcoming series reads: “In the 10-episode season four, 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.”
Will there be a release date for Season 4 of Succession?
HBO has announced that filming on season four of “Covid” has already begun, six months after the last season ended. As long as there are no delays, it’s possible that we’ll get to see the fallout over the GoJo deal as early as the first half of 2023.
Until the next Succession season airs, what else is there to entertain myself?
If you need a new show to watch, try watching Succession. It’s a TV show about the media industry, and it’s very interesting. HBO’s official Succession podcast is also very good; it features discussions with everyone from Matthew Macfadyen and Sarah Snook to Adrien Brody, who guest starred last season as beanie-wearing billionaire Josh Aaronson. If you’re still in need of another razor-sharp drama about corporate intrigue, try Industry, the second season of which arrives later this year.
