Dark satire series Succession has returned for its fourth and final season.

The multi-award winning show follows members of the media magnate Roy family as they battle for control of the company with a dark satire that has been met with critical acclaim.

Just like previous seasons, the series will follow the turbulent power struggle between the spoiled adult children Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin), Siobhan (Sarah Snook) and Connor (Alan Ruck), as they prepare for a future without their father – Logan Roy (Brian Cox).

How can I watch Succession?

Succession airs exclusively with Sky Atlantic in the UK, premiering on Sunday 26 March.

The broadcaster retains all rights to stream the full series, meaning it will air on both Sky Atlantic and Now TV as it has done in previous years.

Both platforms require a paid subscription. The cheapest option – Now TV – costs £9.99 a month with a free seven-day trial. Alternatively, a Sky Stream Box will set you back £26 a month.

The series will air on a weekly basis, consisting of 10 episodes in total.

Will there be a series five of Succession?

Jesse Armstrong, the writer behind the hit HBO show, confirmed that season four of Succession would be the final one. “There’s a promise in the title of Succession. I’ve never thought this could go on forever,” he told The New Yorker.

“The end has always been kind of present in my mind. From season two, I’ve been trying to think: is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?” Mr Armstrong said.

“I got together with a few of my fellow writers before we started the writing of season four… and I sort of said, ‘Look, I think this maybe should be it’.”

“We played out various scenarios: We could do a couple of short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could go on for ages and turn the show into something rather different, and be a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show, where there would be good weeks and bad weeks.

“Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference,” he explained.

“The decision to end solidified through the writing and even when we started filming I said to the cast: ‘I’m not a 100 per cent sure, but I think this is it.’ Because I didn’t want to bullshit them.”
