Not that there was any doubt in our minds – but Succession has officially been renewed for a fourth season.

During the finale of Succession season two Kendall (Jeremy Strong) finally goes ahead with his plans to takedown his father Logan Roy (Brian Cox). In the final scenes of the season two Kendall is seen hosting a gripping press conference and he pins all of the Waystar Royco’s wrongdoings to his father. Season three has only just begun but has already has us gripped. In the first episode we watch the aftermath of Kendall’s controversial decision, from his attempt to overthrow his father in the family’s company, his siblings’ ongoing competition to become its CEO. Elsewhere Logan marches on with his journey to destroy his second eldest and secure his company.

With the news of season 4, we can all gear up for more Roy family shenanigans. Here’s everything we know about Succession Season 4.

Has Succession Season 4 been confirmed?

A week after the Succession Season 3 premiere, HBO confirmed the news to the delight of fans everywhere. We barely had time to digest the first episode before they tweeted the exciting news that a fourth season is on its way:

Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President at HBO Programming, said in a statement: ‘With each season of Succession, [creator] Jesse Armstrong has continued to surpass our wildest expectations, pulling us deeper into the Roy family’s inner sanctum with indelible wit, humanity, and precision. She continued, ‘This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead.’

Which characters will star in Succession Season 4?

Well, we can’t be absolutely sure. As long as there are no more family feuds that turn deadly (no promises)– it is likely season 4 will see the return of our recurring beloved leads. It is likely we will see: Strong, Cox, Sarah Snook (Shiv), Kieran Culkin (Roman), Alan Ruck (Connor), Matthew Macfadyen (Tom) and Nicholas Braun (Cousin Greg).

Others including Sanaa Lathan (Lisa Arthur), Linda Emond (Michelle-Anne Vanderhoven), Jihae (Berry Schneider) Adrian Brody (Josh Aaronson) and Alexander Skarsgård (Lukas Matsson) star in the third season, but it’s still up in the air as to whether their characters will return for season four.

Will there be a Succession Season 5 and beyond?

I don’t think anyone will ever be ready for Succession to come to an end, but luckily for us I don’t think we are anywhere near seeing the last of the Roy family.

In a Variety interview ahead of Season 3, Succession creator Jesse said that, even though he can't give a definite number of seasons, he does have an idea for the series finale. He revealed, 'I don't want to say,' he said when asked how many seasons are remaining. 'All I know is there's a promise in the 'Succession' title, and it can't go on forever.' He continued, 'It's important for me, I think, as a showrunner to have a [series finale] pitch for my fellow collaborators, especially the writers. But it's not immutable. That's up for discussion. But I do have a pitch for how I think it goes.'

However writer and executive producer Georgia Pritchett gave fans a bit more insight. She revealed to The Times that a fifth season might be on the cards given Armstrong has ‘a good end in sight’. She admitted, “I think the maximum would be five seasons, but possibly more like four.'

Is there a trailer for Succession Season 4?

I know we are all eager – but absolutely not. We have only just got a confirmed announcement and that will be enough to hold us over – for now.
