HBO’s successful family power battle drama Succession will not run for more than four or five seasons, one of its writers has said. Likewise, the writing team has arranged what the series finale will resemble – so they’re not simply imagining everything as they come.
Speaking to The Times (via Collider), executive producer and veteran screenwriter Georgia Pritchett said something regarding the show’s future. Pritchett clarified that the show is wrapping up shooting on its third season, and that maker Jesse Armstrong is presently dedicated to four seasons.
“I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four,” Pritchett says. “We’re at the end of filming season three, so at this point [creator Jesse Armstrong] is saying only one more.”
Simultaneously, the writer prods that the team behind Succession has a “good end in sight”, proposing the story is going towards a fantastic end point.
It’s unclear when Succession season 3 will air, however HBO’s Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys has recently said that in a “normal world”, he trusted the show would return in the final three months of this current year.
Succession is an acclaimed drama about the billionaire Roy family, lead by Logan Roy (Brian Cox), the founder of media organization Waystar RoyCo. The show is basically about this patriarch deciding which of his differently spoiled children will take over the organization – which means a nasty and prolonged game of favorites follows. It’s incredibly compelling, and the show last broadcasted back in October 2019 with a huge cliffhanger.
You can watch the first two seasons on HBO Max in the US in the event that you haven’t seen it yet. The show airs on Sky in the UK, and is accessible on Foxtel in Australia.
