The Roy family goes to the top.
Succession, the HBO drama about the media dynasty of the fictional Roy family, concludes after its upcoming fourth season.
As a successor creator Jess Armstrong explains that the decision was not easy.
“I went into the writing room for season four and I kind of said, ‘I think that’s what we’re doing, but let’s also keep it open,'” Armstrong said in an interview with The New Yorker published Feb. 23 . “I like serving the writing room by coming in with some sort of suggestion and then being really open to alternative avenues.”
However, over the course of filming season four, Armstrong said the verdict had become clear.
“The decision on the ending was cemented through the writing, and even as we started filming I said to the cast, ‘I’m not 100 percent sure, but I think that’s it.’ Because I didn’t want to upset her either.”
