Succession Season 4 might be the show's final season, according to Jeremy Strong in a recent interview with GQ Magazine.

Succession chronicles the tale of the fictitious Roy family, owners, and executives of the media conglomerate Waystar RoyCo. Logan (Brian Cox), the family's head, has a heart attack that nearly kills him, and as his children start to plan for life without him, it leads to a struggle for authority and tangled allegiances.

Could Succession 4 Be The Last?

As Strong finished filming for the new season last month, GQ noted that it might have been the actor's final appearance as Kendall Roy because the series was coming to an end.

The actor said, "It will feel like a death, in a way," in response to a question about how he would feel if he had to stop playing the millionaire.

Strong, who has been portraying Kendall Roy since 2018, also mentioned several of his professional friends who have starred in other projects while he was on the show, saying he was jealous of their "that freedom to just shoot yourself out of some different cannons. Sometimes Kendall feels like the same cannon over and over again."

The program has been a huge hit for HBO ever since it debuted, garnering thirteen Primetime Emmy Awards out of a total of forty-eight nominations. For its second and third seasons, the show won awards for Best Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Strong.

What to Look Forward to in Succession Season 4

Succession Season 4 will return to the controversy surrounding the sale of media giant Waystar Royco to tech genius Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard) as it draws nearer to its Mar. 26 premiere on HBO and HBO Plus.

The Roys experience existential turmoil and family strife as they imagine what their life will be like when this seismic sale is accomplished. As this immensely affluent and divided family tries to look out for themselves, it is always difficult to predict what will happen, guaranteeing betrayals, clashing egos, and the occasional humorous moments.

Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, and Matthew Macfadyen, who previously starred in Strong, return in the new episodes.
