Succession Season 4 Release Date: Who Will Appear in This Season?
Yes, Waystar Royco shareholders, Succession Season 4 is on the way. And, after the events of Succession Season 3, we can’t wait to watch how the Roy siblings fight their way out of this dilemma. Of course, there will be spoilers for the Succession season 3 finale below!
The announcement of Succession season 4 originally surfaced during the third season’s airing. On October 26, between episodes 2 and 3, HBO announced that it had ordered a fourth season of the Roy family drama.
According to a press release(opens in new tab), “the season three premiere of [Succession garnered over 1.4 million viewers across all platforms, setting a series high and the highest premiere night of any HBO original series since the introduction of HBO Max.”
Season 4 of Succession has recently begun production and is currently being filmed. HBO has revealed a few story details and confirmed some returning cast members.
Because we can’t get enough board meetings, heated phone calls, and sarcastic insults—and because we have a lot to contemplate after the Season 3 finale—we’re breaking down everything we know about Succession Season 4.
Who Will Appear in Succession Season 4?
Along with announcing the start of filming, HBO revealed who would be returning for Season 4. Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kier Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, and J. Smith-Cameron will all reprise their roles in the high-stakes family drama.
Supporting cast members include Peter Friedman, David Rasche, Fisher Stevens, Hiam Abbass, Justine Lupe, Scott Nicholson, Zo Winters, and Jeannie Berlin, with more cast members to be confirmed shortly.
Season 3 guest actor Alexander Skarsgard, who plays Lukas Matsson, a computer mogul threatening Waystar Royco’s future, is not mentioned in the press release. However, one detail in Season 4’s official logline implies that Skarsgard’s Lukas will play a more significant role in the following episodes.
The Plotline of Succession Season 4
HBO has announced a short description for Succession’s upcoming season: “The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to digital genius Lukas Matsson comes increasingly closer.
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. A power struggle emerges as the family considers a future in which their influence in culture and politics will be drastically reduced.
As we saw in the finale, the main plot is that the siblings were removed from the decision-making process due to Logan and their mother, Caroline Collingwood, working behind their backs.
Additionally, it appears that Tom, who is always cunning, was the informant who let the parents know about the intentions. Yes, Gerri is presently serving as Waystar Royco’s interim CEO, but we are unsure how long that will continue.
The plot of Succession season 4 will probably resemble that of season 3, except that Shiv, Roman, and Ken are now battling to stop Logan rather than just Kendall, who is now on the outs.
Naturally, the merger/acquisition of GoJo is also coming, so it will be interesting to see how much influence Lukas Mattson has.
Release Date of Succession Season 4
Now that Succession season 4 has begun production, we may speculate on when it will air on HBO and HBO Max.
We don’t feel season 3’s prolonged production cycle — which began in fall 2020 and premiered on October 17, 2021, and was plagued with Covid-19-related delays — should be used as a model, so let’s take a look at season 2.
On June 11, 2018, the second season was confirmed(opens in new tab), and the first rumors of filming began surfaced in March 2019. (opens in new tab). It will then be released on August 11, 2019.

Given that production began in June, a December 2022/January 2023 release date for Succession season 4 seems highly likely. Of course, it will be available on HBO and HBO Max (one of our picks for the best streaming services).
