Succession (Final Season Premiere)
The family we love (to hate) is back and better than ever. The critically acclaimed HBO series Succession about the major dysfunction of the media empire family led by Logan Roy (Brian Cox) returns for its (sigh) final season.
The ensemble drama, which was created by Jesse Armstrong, picks up with the Roy siblings Roman (Kieran Culkin), Shiv (Sarah Snook), Kendall (Jeremy Strong), and Connor (Alan Ruck) at their biggest loss yet: financially cut off from their father. Have you picked your jaw up off the floor yet from that betrayal? Not that one. The other one. Matthew Macfadyen’s Tom Wambsgans left us in shock when it was revealed that he tipped off Logan about his children’s pending coup. Looking for a show would keep you at the edge of your seat all weekend, Succession is that show.

The limited series follows orphan Pip (Fionn Whitehead), who grew up being groomed to be a blacksmith, only to receive a sudden fortune from an unknown source, catapulting him into high society.
