HBO’s Succession’s premiere of the final season is officially here! After the shocking season three finale, fans have been eagerly waiting for this return. The Emmy winning show loosely based on the Murdoch dynasty, returns with the children of the Roy family continuing to turn against their father. The show picks up on a new upbeat tone with the show’s director stating that the adult children of the family have a new “sense of a second childhood.” The Roy siblings, Kendall, Shiv, and Roman are preparing a “revolutionary new media brand” to rival against their father’s media conglomerate, Waystar Royco, that is aging and dying out. In the past seasons, the children battled each other to take over CEO at Waystar Royco when their father, Logan Roy, is unfit for the job. Fans are eager to see how this highly anticipated final season will play out, which is promised to be “surprising” and the cast says that the “gloves are coming off.” Nicholas Braun, aka Cousin Greg, stated that “this season is just ratcheted up. It’s kind of just madness. And the intensity of it all is another level than we’ve had in the last three seasons.” Keep posted with HBO to tune in and see how this crazy show will unfold!
