Name a more dysfunctional family than the Roys from HBO’s Succession. It’s difficult to compare Waystar RoyCO’s mogul Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his offspring to other families on TV right now. After all, as long as it gets them closer to the top, they are always eager to do the dirty work. Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook), and Roman (Kieran Culkin) will return to the small screen soon to compete for the highest ranking position at their father’s media firm, following the climactic ending of Season 3. That is, unless Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Greg (Nicholas Braun) take the initiative first. Here’s a handy guide with all the information available about the next chapter of Jesse Armstrong’s award-winning show for those who are curious about what’s next for the series.

Succession Season 4: Everything you need to know
As new alliances are formed and people’s noses are bent, Succession Season 4’s plot will undoubtedly take the Roy family on a number of unexpected turns. However, Logan’s decision to make a deal with Mattson — and persuade his ex-wife to change their divorce agreement — that excludes his children, including both Roman and Shiv, from WayStar’s future will continue to be the main focus of Succession season 4’s story. Logan, Tom, Greg, and Gerri formed one line of defense, while the four Roy siblings formed the other. You can also check out the official plotline below:
“The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson moves ever closer. The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is completed. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”
The focus of succession has always been on who will succeed Logan. While this may still be the case in the future to some extent, it will now be necessary to consider which of them may still be able to do so and how. In terms of individual plotlines, Logan will need to discover his place in the world without the company that had previously been his life. After Shiv repeatedly beat him down, Tom left. Roman was abandoned by Gerri, and Kendall is struggling to stay alive as he loses control of his life. It’s time to find out where the family goes.
As for the cast, you can expect Cox, Strong, Culkin, Snook, Ruck, Macfadyen, and Braun to return to their roles as part of the Roy family conglomerate. In addition to them, Alexander Skarsgård, Cherry Jones, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Arian Moayed, Juliana Canfield, Stephen Root, Hope Davis, and Justin Kirk will also return.
