HBO has released the official trailer for the fourth and final season of Succession. The official description for the season reveals: ‘The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson moves ever closer.’
The show’s creator, Jesse Armstrong, told The New Yorker in an interview published Thursday that he has made the “tortured” decision to end the TV saga of the highly dysfunctional, super-powerful Roy family with Season 4, which returns March 26.
“There’s a promise in the title of ‘Succession.’ I’ve never thought this could go on forever,” Armstrong said. “The end has always been kind of present in my mind. From Season 2, I’ve been trying to think: Is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?”
Armstrong said he met with his writing team in late 2021 and discussed various end scenarios.

“We could do a couple of short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could go on for ages and turn the show into something rather different, and be a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show, where there would be good weeks and bad weeks,” said Armstrong. “Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference.” “Succession” has won 13 Emmy awards, including best drama series twice (2020, 2022).
Armstrong shut down the rumour of a “Succession” sequel in the future saying, “I think this succession story that we were telling is complete.”
