HBO has announced that it is renewing Succession for a fourth season. The show started its third season on October 17 and continues to stay strong as the season premiere drew in over 1.4 million viewers across HBO and HBO Max.
“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,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming in a statement. “This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead.”

The third season of Succession has Logan Roy, played by Brian Cox, trying to secure various familial, political, and finances after his son Kendell, chose to expose his role in a company scandal. The corporate frenzy risks becoming personal as the Roy family decides who will fill in for Logan after his downfall.
In an interview earlier this year Succession executive producer Georgia Pritchett said that Succession is being developed with an end in sight and that the show might end after five seasons. “I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four,” Pritchett said to The Times. “We’ve got a good end in sight.”
In IGN’s Succession Season 3 review, Hanna Flint says, ” Succession Season 3 returns with just as much petty hilarity, punishing woes, and blazing performances as previous seasons with a civil war storyline to keep you hooked on the exploits of these awful rich people.”
New episodes of Succession air on Sunday nights at 9 PM ET/PT on HBO and are available for streaming on HBO Max.
