Production Begins on HBO’s Succession Season 4

By Jessica Lerner 

Everyone’s favorite feuding family is back… well, almost.

Production has started on the fourth season of the Emmy-winning HBO original drama series Succession.

Created by Jesse Armstrong, the series explores themes of power and family dynamics through the eyes of patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his four grown children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Connor (Alan Ruck).


The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson advances throughout the fourth season’s 10 episodes. As the Roys envision what their life would be like after the sale is completed, the possibility of this seismic sale causes existential turmoil and familial discord. As the family considers a future in which their influence in culture and politics will be significantly reduced, a power struggle emerges.

Other cast members include Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, J. Smith-Cameron, Peter Friedman, David Rasche, Fisher Stevens, Hiam Abbass, Justine Lupe, Scott Nicholson, Zoë Winters and Jeannie Berlin.
