The cable network named HBO has confirmed the renewal status for the fourth instalment of the series named Succession. According to Deadline, the announcement has come out when the creator of the series named Jesse Armstrong was two episodes away to enter the third one.
The series named succession is executive produced by showrunner Armstrong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod, Tony Roche, Scott Ferguson, Jon Brown, Lucy Prebble, Will Tracy, and Will Ferrell.
The third instalment of the series was released on 17th October. The series crosses almost 1.4m viewers across all platforms after it got aired. It has been marked as the best launch night performance of an original series that took place since the streamer HBO Max went live.
The ongoing nine-episode series has shown Logan Roy (Brian Cox) in a dangerous position after he was ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall (Jeremy Strong) at the end of season two.
The tension arises as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war after the agreement that was meant to be secured with daughter Shiv (Sarah Snook) and younger son Roman (Kieran Culkin) got mixed up.
EVP of HBO Programming, Francesca Orsi, has said that the channel is excited to renew the series succession for its fourth instalment.
Orsi has 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”.
Earlier Georgia Pritchett the writer and executive producer of the series has said that the satirical family drama will come to an end after a maximum of five seasons.
Pritchett has told The Times in the month of June by teasing a “good end in sight” that, “I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four. We’re at the end of filming season 3, so at this point (Armstrong) is saying only one more”.
