Well, Succession season 4 is finally over, folks, and the hierarchy of Waystar has changed for good.
But, with a relatively open ending and the Roy family still in turmoil, many fans of the hit show are wondering about a potential new season.
That is right, never say never when it comes to Succession because there is still hope that one of the best TV series of all time will return to our small screens for a new outing.
All but one of the Succession characters left the last episode feeling satisfied – meaning there is still plenty of space for more schemes, power plays, and betrayal.
Jesse Armstrong is the creator of the satirical dark comedy-drama television series Succession in America.
Fans are eagerly awaiting the debut of Succession Season 5 after four outstanding seasons. From June 3, 2018, until May 28, 2023, a total of four seasons and 39 episodes were shown on HBO.

So, once you’ve gone through all the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance – and are ready to bid farewell to the series for good, read on for everything you need to know about why there won’t be a fifth season of Succession.

Succession Season 4 Trailer
Succession Season 4 Plot
Succession follows the story of the owner of the billion-dollar business Waystar RoyCo. Logan Roy, the head of the family, after suffering from a serious illness decided to quit his position and decide on the new heir.
In the 1st season, it is shown that all the kids try hard to be the boss of the company. Kendall the power-hungry tried several attempts to be in the position. However, he failed due to his dark scandals.
In the 2nd season, we see Kendall being extremely opposite to his father. He acted as a whistleblower and did public stunts to defame his father.
During the 3rd season Kendall does lots of campaigns but miserably fails because he doesn’t follow the right steps given by his PR team.
The third season ended when Logan Roy decided to sell his company. And then for the first time, all the siblings get together to own the position they deserve in business. And stop the sale of Waystar RoyCo.
The sequel to the series, season 4, will continue from where the last season ended. It might be the last season in the series. However, it’s not confirmed. So, it might give us all the answers we desperately want.
“The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson moves ever closer.
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.”
It is speculated that in season 4 the couple Shiv and Tom will have a troublesome marriage. We don’t even know if they will remain in the marriage or not after Tom played a double game with Shiv and her brothers. After he joined hands with Logan.
Besides, after Logan and Tom team up, the war will be going to be far more exciting than before.
Last but not least, we see Connor and Willa’s engagement in the last season. So maybe there will be a wedding in the next season.
On one side relationships are being broken while on the other hand, new relationships are being made. We can say that the next season will be quite interesting.
The plot of Succession Season 5 is currently unknown, but there are a few potential directions the show could take.
One possibility is that it would focus on Kendall’s new business venture or delve into a prequel storyline.
With Kendall now sidelined, he may be determined to regain power and either buy back Waystar or seek cathartic revenge by destroying it.
Kendall’s story seems far from over, despite the conclusion of Season 4. Another option for Season 5 is to explore a spin-off route, similar to the popular HBO series House of the Dragon.
