Succession writer says show will end after season 4 or 5
"We've got a good end in sight" said Georgia Prichett.
HBO’s black comedy-drama Succession will most likely end after either its fourth or fifth season, one of its writers and executive producers Georgia Prichett has said.
“I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four,” she said during a recent interview with The Times about the release of her new memoir.
While series creator and showrunner Jesse Armstrong is apparently leaning more toward four, Prichett explained that a fifth season could easily still happen because this type of decision is reversed all the time.
Filming on the eagerly-anticipated third season of Succession is nearing its end and is expected to premiere sometime later this year.
Two major new additions to the cast are Alexander Skarsgård and Adrian Brody who will play a successful tech founder Lukas Matsson and a billionaire activist investor respectively.
They’ll also be joined by Your Honor actress Hope Davis, K-pop singer Jihae, Sanaa Lathan and Linda Emond.
It’s expected that this third season will pick up where the second left off and explore the fallout from Kendall’s (Jeremy Strong) decision to expose Waystar Royco’s attempts to cover up its huge cruise line scandal.
“Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall (Strong) at the end of season two, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) begins season three in a perilous position,” reads the official plot synopsis.
“Scrambling to secure familial, political and financial alliances, tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war.”
Both seasons of Succession are available to stream with the NOW Entertainment membership.
