After the war between Jeremy Strong's Kendall Roy and his father Logan Roy (Brian Cox) in Season 3, Succession Season 4 left fans with plenty of unanswered questions.
The Roys return in Succession Season 4
With Season 3's tense conclusion, fans will be relieved to learn that HBO has officially announced Succession Season 4. After all, the Roys had no intention of reclaiming Waystar Royco from Lukas Mattson (Alexander Skarsgård). Many people are curious to discover what they'll do if they're fully cut off from the family business.
Fortunately, there was never much anxiety about the series not being renewed. It appeared to be a foregone conclusion, as HBO confirmed another batch of episodes in October 2021, far before the third season ended.
While the show will undoubtedly return, HBO has not provided a release date for Succession Season 4. Fans don't even have a window to work with as of this writing.
However, one of the show's writers provided an update on the writing room's progress. Based on that, fans may be able to guesstimate a return date.
Georgia Pritchett provides an update on Succession Season 4
There's still no indication on a return date for HBO's Succession, months after its Season 3 finale. However, writer Georgia Pritchett has provided an update on the new episodes.
In response to one of J. Cameron Smith’s posts on Twitter, Pritchett disclosed the scripts for the fourth season are nearly complete. She wrote, "We're almost done writing Season 4,"
After they've finished writing, the cast and crew will have to go through production and post-production. So, viewers may not be able to see the finished output for some time. However, now that we know where things stand, we might be able to make an educated guess as to when Succession Season 4 will premiere on HBO.
Succession Season 4 release date predictions
This suggests that there may not be as a large gap between Season 3 and Season 4 as there was between Seasons 2 and 3. Due to COVID delays, there was nearly a 2-year hiatus between seasons, so learning that they're almost through scripting Succession Season 4 should be thrilling for viewers.
Optimistically, this means that the Roys will be back on our screens in early 2023.
Of course, fans will have to wait for more information to have a better picture of Succession Season 4's release date. Meanwhile, the first three seasons of the show are currently available on HBO Max.
