One of the writers of HBO’s acclaimed drama Succession has revealed the series is expected to end after four or five seasons.


Succession focuses on the personal and professional feuds of the Roy’s, a family of egocentric media moguls, and their battle for power and wealth as they navigate control of their family’s billion dollar empire.

Speaking to The Times, writer Georgia Pritchett said:

“I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four.

“We’re at the end of filming season three, so at this point [creator Jesse Armstrong] is saying only one more. But that happens every time. We’ve got a good end in sight.”

Filming for the hotly-anticipated third season of Succession is officially underway in Italy.

Season two ended with Kendall (Jeremy Strong) decided to save himself from the sinking Waystar Royco ship. He revealed to the press that his father, Logan (Brian Cox), was involved in several misdeeds, including the covering-up of sexual misconduct.

This move is expected to reverberate throughout season three, although further details are still being kept under wraps.

Starring alongside Cox and Strong is Kieran Culkin (Roman), Sarah Snook (Siobhan), Nicholas Braun (Greg) and Alan Ruck (Connor). They’re all expected to reprise their respective roles.

The third season of Succession is due to arrive on HBO (and Sky Atlantic in the UK) later this year, with filming having been delayed by a year due to the pandemic.


Seasons one and two are available on HBO Max now.
