Well, this didn’t take too long at all. After just two episodes in season 3, HBO confirmed today that there will be a Succession season 4!
For several out there, this renewal probably feels like a foregone conclusion. We are talking here about one of the network’s most-popular shows, in addition to one that also has an enormous awards-show cache. Easily, it has a chance of being around for however long the cast and crew want it to be. We can’t imagine HBO ever wanting to end it themselves.
In a statement confirming the renewal, here is what Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming had to say:
“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.”
We have heard Brian Cox (Logan) say in the past that he could easily see Succession making it on the air for at least another couple of seasons, and while he’s not the person who makes the final decision on that, he may at least be plugged-in to some of the long-term creatives. The goal with this show should be to keep it around for however long it feels fresh. We do think there needs to be a proper successor named before too long, though, mostly because otherwise, you run the risk of having every season being largely about the same exact thing.
What do you think about Succession being renewed for a season 4?
