Succession boss confirms fate of show beyond season 3 as new episodes bag rave reviews

SUCCESSION has been renewed for a fourth series after the latest episodes bagged stellar reviews.

After a two-year hiatus, America’s favourite chaotic family returned for the third season – and they certainly didn’t disappoint. 

The Emmy-winning show tells the story of media tycoon Logan Roy – played by Brian Cox – and his back-stabbing family.

The Roy family and their conniving antics have only been back for a few episodes of the third series, but such is the success and confidence in the show that HBO have decided that they already want to see more.

"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,” HBO executive vice president Francesca Orsi announced on Tuesday.

"This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn't be more excited for all that's in store in this next season ahead."

Created by Jesse Armstrong, who was also the co-creator of British comedy staple Peep Show, the show's runaway success has seen it garner positive reviews from both critics and viewers alike.

However, there is some speculation that the fourth season could actually be the last one.

"There's going to be a very definite moment when that story is over, and it can't go on too long," Jesse told The New Statesman. 

"I think there'll be an end for me in this incarnation of the show in a bit."

Succession will return to screens for its third episode of the third season on Monday, 1 November on Sky and NOW.
