Succession is returning. Season 4 is coming soon and we’ll finally find out what’s next for the Roy children. Last we saw, they were hoodwinked out of their Waystar RoyCo stock after attempting a coup.
But when will it air, is there a trailer, and what else can we expect from the final season of one of the hottest shows around?
Here’s what we know so far about Succession season 4.

Succession is an HBO original and is on HBO Max in the US. A subscription to HBO Max costs $14.99 a month without ads (or $9.99 a month with ads).
As HBO Max isn’t available in territories outside the US, deals have been struck with local broadcasters. For example, Succession is on Sky in the UK – as with other HBO exclusive content.
You’ll need a subscription to Sky Q, Sky Glass, Sky Stream, BT TV or Virgin Media that covers access to Sky Atlantic to watch the show. Alternatively, you can also pay for Now Entertainment membership and stream the show across multiple devices.
What is the best streaming device for your TV? Our top recommendation is the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. Also excellent are the Google Chromecast with Google TVthe Roku Express 4Kthe Apple TV 4K and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
How many episodes are in Succession season 4?
It has been confirmed that there will be 10 episodes in Succession season 4 – just as with seasons 1 and 2.
Season 3 is the only one to differ, having been truncated to nine episodes due to filming under pandemic guidelines.
What is expected to happen in Succession season 4?
HBO has released an official, brief synopsis of Succession season 4: “The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson ever moves closer,” it reveals.
“The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is completed. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”
Is there a trailer for Succession season 4?
A new trailer was released on January 26 2023, you can watch that below:
Previously, we were given a brief teaser trailer which was released online in October 2022. Check that out below:
How and where to catch up on previous seasons of Succession?
There are a number of ways to catch up with the first three seasons of Succession.
Seasons 1, 2 and 3 are available on demand to HBO Max subscribers in the US, Sky and Now subscribers in the UK.
Alternatively, all three seasons can be purchased online through numerous digital video services, including Prime Videos, Apple TV, and Google Play TV & Movies. You can buy individual episodes or entire seasons.
Also, if you’d prefer to own a physical disc, Succession season 1 is available on Blu-ray. However, Seasons 2 and 3 never made it to BD disc release, although you can get all three bundled in a single DVD pack.
Will there be a season 5 of Succession?
In late February 2023, it was finally confirmed that Succession is wrapping up at the end of season 4 – there will be no season 5 of the show.
Creator Jesse Armstrong made the announcement in an interview with The New Yorkerand it means that every plot thread will be wrapped up by the end of the fourth season.
That means we should know who’s actually, really going to succeed Logan Roy, if anyone, and what will happen with the various fractious relationships the show has so far laid out.
