Marriage on the rock, a business deal is tanking, and children against their father, its an all-out war in Season 4 of the brilliant HBO series Succession. HBO Max has just revealed a teaser trailer for the much-awaited Succession Season 4. The teaser shows us the Roy siblings together standing against their father and not giving in to his demands. The teaser also shows us Tom (Matthew MacFadyen) contemplating what would happen if his and Shiv’s (Sarah Snook) marriage were to end.
Succession Season 3 ended with a big bang and eyes full of tears, and now it seems that in Season 4, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) will have to face off against his three united and royally pissed children including Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Snook), and Roman (Kieran Culkin). The finale episode of the third season was titled “All the Bells Say“, and it managed to top the second season finale episode, which in my opinion was almost impossible to beat. Throughout this season we see clearly that Logan doesn’t think that any of his children could do the big job. In Season 3 Kendall goes after his father with everything he is got and eventually flames out because Logan always f**cking wins. We see Shiv trying to impress her father by trying to make decisions for the company, which almost always backfires on her, and finally, Roman who seems closest to Logan this season loses his chance because of the dick pic incident.
After all this Logan realizes that no child of his is capable of doing the job he is doing because they didn’t build anything themselves they were handed everything they wanted, and then comes GoJo creator Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård), whose company Logan is interested in acquiring but Matsson makes an offer to buy Waystar instead and for the first time, Logan thinks about selling his empire. He obviously knows that his children don’t want to sell the company, so he secretly leaves his ex-wife’s wedding to get the deal started. Shiv realizes that she and her brothers are about to lose the company and goes to talk to Roman and Kendall, where the “No. 1 Boy” confesses about killing the waiter at Shiv’s wedding, then Shiv and Roman comfort in a very Succession style, and then the siblings head out to stop Logan and kill the deal by not granting Logan supermajority.
New cast members joining the series in Season 4 are Annabeth Gish, Adam Godley, Eli Harboe, and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson. More returning cast members are J. Smith Cameron, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Arian Moayed, Harriet Walter, James Cromwell, Natalie Gold, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Ashley Zuckerman, Larry Pine, Mark-Linn Baker, and Pip Torrens.
