The Succession season 4 release date brought back the Roy family for more drama in Jesse Armstrong's hit drama series, and here's all you need to know.

Succession season 4 release date: Sarah Snook as Shiv Roy

When was the Succession season 4 release date and who is in the cast? Four seasons of Succession have taken us on a jaw-clenching, stress-inducing, tumultuous ride from start to finish with the Roy family. In season 3, once again, we were thrown amid sibling rivalry, deciding which Roy sibling has a sniff of a redeemable quality, and thoroughly enjoying every single Tom and Cousin Greg interaction.

Viewers have been treated to many great moments in the drama series, from masterful screenwriter Jesse Armstrong and the Succession cast. Season 4 has taken things up a notch, and delivered even more shocks, surprises, and stress. We can’t quite believe Succession is over now, but the ultimate season finale left us more than satisfied.

So if you’re just catching up, you may be wondering when was the Succession season 4 release date? We’ve got as much intel as we can gather without our own inside hook-up from WayStar RoyCo. So, read on, but beware of any spoilers for the fourth and final season.

What happens in Succession 4?

Succession season 4 deals with the stuttering GoJo deal as the leadership structure at Waystar Royco begins to crumble in the wake of Logan Roy’s death.

Yep, that’s right: years of stress and health concerns finally took their toll on old Logan, as the patriarch died while completing a deal on international travel in Succession season 4 episode 3. It was inevitable, and the show is called Succession, after all. At some point, there needed to be some succeeding.

The finale sees the fate of the GoJo deal finally decided, and a new Waystar CEO installed. We’ll let you watch the episode before we openly discuss who that is, though.

During the interview, Armstrong admitted he was nervous about the decision but felt it was the right creative choice, citing that the title “succession” was a promise that put a time limit on the show’s run. So, the best TV series of the modern era has now come to an end, sadly.
