Has the satirical black comedy-drama television series reached its end? Continue reading to find out more about Succession Season 4. 

It’s great to know that the new season is finally here after more than a year of waiting, which has woken up the fandom to speculate about potential storylines by catching up on prior seasons to grasp on details they may have missed previously. There is no doubt this has cheered up the viewers, but sadly, there is another side to the coin that has a bit of a bitter scenario. The possibility of Succession’s fourth season being the final season has been discussed in a new interview with Jeremy Strong by GQ Magazine.  

According to the report, Strong returned to the set in January to film the final two episodes of the new season, which could be the final two episodes of the series altogether. His portrayal of Kendall Roy made him a significant phenomenon as well as infamous for his extreme approach to acting. Over the seasons, Strong has considered what it will mean to say goodbye to Kendall Roy, the deeply troubled billionaire scion he’s been inhabiting for the past five years.

After depicting such an iconic character, there are some doubts that any actor has concerning whether this will be the pinnacle of his career. “It will feel like a death, in a way,” he says. Strong thinks about his coworkers, who have finished five, six, or seven projects while he was working on Succession. He envies “that freedom to just shoot yourself out of some different cannons. Sometimes Kendall feels like the same cannon over and over again.” 

This interview kind of suggests that the show might be racing towards its end; it’s just a matter of time until HBO officially confirms it to the fans. On the other hand, writer Georgia Pritchett told The Sunday Times that the writers already are plotting the next season. “I think the maximum would be five seasons but possibly more like four,” she told the newspaper. Further adding, “At this point [Armstrong] is saying only one more [season]. But that happens every time. We’ve got a good end in sight.”
