Will There Be A Season 5 Of Succession? Everything You Need To Know!

Succession concluded its fourth and final season on Sunday night, delivering an exceptional episode filled with unexpected turns, surprises, and a particularly amusing exchange between Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) and Greg (Nicholas Braun). In essence, it encompassed the characteristic elements of a typical Succession episode.

Nevertheless, this episode marked the end of the Succession series, with no future seasons currently in the works. Despite this, given the show’s immense triumph and widespread popularity, many fans are left speculating whether the decision will be reversed and a fifth season of Succession will be produced. Is there a possibility of a Season 5 for Succession?

Will there be a Season 5 of Succession?

During an episode of Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast, Kieran Culkin, known for his role as Roman Roy, shared that Jesse Armstrong, the creator of the series, hinted at the potential for a fifth season while they were in the midst of filming Season 4.

“Jesse told us at the season’s start that he thought this was the last one,” he said. “And then he explained the entire season to me. When he finished, I said, ‘Well, that kind of sounds like the end,’ and he goes, ‘Well, it could be, but…’ and then he just spat out three ideas that he said were just off the top of his head, and that were all brilliant ideas for a fifth season.”

During an interview with the New Yorker, Armstrong provided substantial confirmation that the Roy family’s appearances would conclude with this occasion.

“It’s pretty definitively the end, so then it just might be uncomfortable having to sort of dissemble like a politician for ages about it,” he said. “Hopefully, the show is against bullshit, and I wouldn’t like to be bullshitting anyone when I was talking about it.”

“You know, there’s a promise in the title of Succession,” he continued. “I’ve never thought this could go on forever. The end has always been kind of present in my mind. From Season 2, I’ve been trying to think: Is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?”

Will there be a Succession Spinoff?

In terms of potential Succession spin-offs, several options emerge. Firstly, Connor Roy (played by Alan Ruck) could delve into the realm of politics and explore his life in that arena. Additionally, Jess Jordan (portrayed by Juliana Canfield) could embark on her own path, following her departure from Kendall Roy, and discover where life takes her. Lastly, there’s Stewy, who would undoubtedly continue being his enigmatic self.

However, it is important to note that, at present, HBO does not have any intentions or arrangements in place for such spin-offs.

“I’ll never say never, but my instinct and based on a number of conversations about the evolution of Succession and these characters, at this stage, there is no intention of spinning any one character off,” HBO head of drama Francesca Orcitold Deadline in a new interview. “Jesse, should he do a series again, I think it will be entirely original. Whether it’s based on IP or not, I’m not sure, but it will be a new show, a new idea entirely.”

What Happened In The Succession Season 4 Finale?

The episode begins with Kendall (Jeremy Strong) rushing to secure board votes in order to prevent the GoJo deal. Kendall is confident that he has the necessary support, while Shiv (Sarah Snook) believes she has enough votes to favor Matsson and proceed with the deal, with her being appointed as the American CEO.

Kendall and Shiv travel to Caroline’s estate to persuade Roman (Kieran Culkin) to align with them. After a conversation with Greg, Kendall discovers that Matsson (Alexander SkarsgĂĄrd) has no intention of appointing Shiv as the CEO, which compels her to join forces with her brothers. Eventually, Roman and Shiv agree to support Kendall’s cause.

In preparation for the board meeting, the three siblings visit Logan’s previous residence to retrieve some of his belongings. Tom informs Shiv that Matsson will appoint him as the CEO if the agreement is successful, prompting the siblings to rush to the office to secure the final votes needed to oppose the deal.

During the board meeting, the vote is evenly split at six to six, and Shiv holds the deciding vote. Kendall pleads with his sister to support him, but Shiv goes against her promise and casts her vote in favor of the deal, resulting in Tom becoming the new CEO. The episode concludes with Roman drinking alone at a bar, Shiv coldly backing Tom in the car, and a defeated Kendall gazing into the sunset. Ultimately, it was Tom, rather than any of the Roy children, who emerged victorious and claimed the throne.
