When we thought we’d seen it all and things couldn’t get any worse, Season 3 kicked off the Roys upside down and showed that they are more treacherous, calculating, and dangerous than they first appeared on the show. Since then, Succession has become one of the best dramas on television. It has been able to keep things interesting.
The third season of Succession kicked off with a bang when Kendall Roy accused her father of being behind the corporate problem (to show him he was a bully), and it left everyone in turmoil, and divided.
Everyone took off their gloves as the war was officially declared, and new alliances were established. Each Shiv, Kendall, Roman, Logan, and Conor had their own objectives and goals, but things never turn out the way everyone wants them to, and there is always one person who winds up being more affected than the rest of the group. This time, Kendall came perilously close to losing her life, and the three brothers (since Connor has his own issues) were “victims” of one of the most egregious betrayals committed throughout the series (by Tom, no less, and Greg).
The conclusion of the season was left on a cliffhanger, but fortunately, there is already a fourth season confirmed (which may or may not be the last) and that is where, apparently, the fate of the company will be decided, and because of this, the future of the children hangs by a very fragile thread.
What will happen in Succession Season 4?
Within the confines of this show, everything is possible, and the plot twists and turns significantly from episode to episode. Although nothing has been decided for sure just yet, there are a few hypotheses regarding what might happen in the future.
The official plot summary for the season was provided by Variety, and it reads as follows: “In the ten episodes of the fourth season, the sale of the media conglomerate Waystar Royco to the tech genius Lukas Matsson grows ever closer.” When the Roy family considers what their life will be like once the transaction is finalized, they experience existential turmoil and a division within their family as a result of the prospect of this seismic sale. A struggle for dominance breaks out inside the family as they consider a future in which their influence in both culture and politics will be significantly diminished.
Will the Brothers try to Regain Control?
The series’ overarching goal is to introduce viewers to the character who will take over for Logan Roy (Brian Cox), and season 4 is intended to deliver on that promise. Since the show’s producer has stated that it will end in four or five seasons at the most, Roy, the patriarch of the family, does not have much time left to choose someone to succeed him as head of the family.
If the brothers find out that Luka Matsson (the character played by Alexander Skarsgard) is going to take the position, they might be able to do something to change it, but in order to do so, they will need to cooperate in a way that they haven’t really done in the past. Some theories suggest that none of the brothers is going to take the throne, and everything points to the fact that it could be Luka Matsson.
Will Logan Roy Die?
Logan has previously made it abundantly clear to his children that he is not going to permit them to be fired from his own firm until he makes the choice himself, and at this point, he is in the process of carrying out that decision. Because Logan is treated almost like a king in the world of the series, and his own children are aware of this fact, there are some people who believe that the only way to get rid of him is for him to pass away. This would also give them the opportunity to prevent a possible purchase of the company. Logan’s children are aware of this fact.
Who Come Back?
Alexander Skarsgard, Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, and J. Smith-Cameron have all been confirmed for the season, but according to Variety, a number of new cast members are being added this time around.
