Season three finished with a shocking finale - but how long do we need to wait for the next instalment?

The third series of Succession concluded on 13 December in typically dramatic fashion, and it’s unlikely anything will be the same for the Roy family again.

How long though until viewers will get to find out what happens next? Here’s everything you need to know about Succession season 4.

Will there be a season 4 of Succession?

Yes, there will be! That’s been guaranteed for a while, with HBO renewing the show for a fourth season before the third series had even started airing.

What will happen in season 4 of Succession?

It’s a little early to say, though no doubt it’ll deal heavily with the fallout of Logan’s actions in the season 3 finale.

However, we do know that season 4 will begin shooting in June next year – meaning we can probably expect to see the Roy family return in late 2022, or perhaps early 2023.

How many seasons of Succession will there be?

Don’t count on Succession continuing forever – there’s even a chance Season 4 might be its last.

Earlier this year, Brian Cox said in an interview with GQ that he expected there would be “possibly two more series and then I think we’re done”.

He went on to say, though, that “it depends what the writers feel. I know they’ve got an endgame. They haven’t told us what the ending is, but there is an endgame. So it’s just how they get up to that endgame, whether it takes one series or two series.”

Creator Jesse Armstrong (Peep Show) has made similar comments.  Another writer on the series, Georgia Pritchett, recently revealed that as they finished work on the third season of Succession Armstrong suggested the fourth season would also be the final season.

But she did also point out that he has said that at the end of every previous season, too, so perhaps the show will continue at least a little longer.

Who is in the cast of Succession?

Among the cast of Succession are Jeremy Strong (The Big Short, The Trial of the Chicago 7) as Kendall, Kieran Culkin (Home Alone) as Roman, Sarah Snook (Black Mirror) as Shiv, and Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Spin City) as Connor. Their father Logan is played by Brian Cox, who previously played Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter (and isn’t to be confused with physicist Bryan Cox!).

The show also stars Matthew Macfadyen (Pride and Prejudice, Quiz) as Shiv’s husband Tom Wambsgams, Nicholas Braun (Zola) as Cousin Greg, and J. Smith-Cameron (Rectify) as Gerri Kellman.

This year, guest stars have included Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Pip Torrens (The Crown, Patrick Melrose), Harriet Walter (Downton Abbey, Ted Lasso), and Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies).
