Regarding the season 4 renewal, HBO said: “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. This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead.”
As well as Strong and Cox, Succession also stars Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Alan Ruck.
