Succession Season 4

Succession is currently the best series on television right now and there is no doubt about that while there are no dragons or mystical elements in the series, the politics and backstabbing nature of the characters in the series definitely don’t need any kind of help to make Succession a must watch. The HBO series follows the rich and spoiled Roy family which includes Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong), Shiv Roy (Sarah Snook), Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin), the head of the family, and the vast media company Logan Roy (Brian Cox). The series follows the same kind of story of succession as we have seen many times before but the characters in the series are what make this backstabbing and ruthless family fun and a must-watch for anyone who likes shows such as Game of Thrones, and House of the Dragon. Succession concluded its Season 3 in 2021 with a banger of a finale and is returning with its fourth season in Spring 2023.
