Succession has been releasing episodes of its fourth and final season for the past couple of months, marking the end of the Roy family’s story. Since the premiere of the first episode of this new season, the HBO series has been gaining more and more followers, becoming one of the standout releases of the year.


Currently, Succession has already aired eight episodes of this season, and it is heading towards its grand finale. What can we expect from this epic conclusion to the series? With the patriarch of the family deceased, there are only a few remaining mysteries to unravel about the most dysfunctional family on television.

Succession has only 2 episodes left (out of a total of 10)

Succession, the series that airs weekly on HBO Max, is about to reach its conclusion. It only has two episodes left to reach its climax, making a total of 10 episodes in the season, with the eighth episode already aired. In just two weeks, we will witness the culmination of the Roy family’s story and finally see how it all ends.

Since 2018, Succession has followed the footsteps of Logan Roy, the founder of a fictional media conglomerate called Waystar-Royco. Portrayed by Brian Cox, he has become one of the greatest television characters of all time… until his death in this very season.

Now, in these final episodes of the fourth season, his children Kendall, Roman, and Shiv must compete for the company’s inheritance… while also contending with Connor, the unrecognized son who won’t make it easy. Undoubtedly, the eighth episode will be crucial in setting the stage for the grand finale… although it seems that everything will be decided in the last episode.

A movie to conclude Succession

The final episode of Succession will be like a movie. It will last for 90 minutes (an hour and a half) and will be complemented by the eighth episode, which is one hour long. This means there are still two and a half hours left to see what will happen in the conclusion of Succession. Considering its ability to quickly twist the plot, anything could happen before the finale.

The final episode, in movie format, will premiere on Sunday, May 28, 2023. Before that, on May 21, the eighth episode will air. Both will be available on HBO Max at the same time as every week. Additionally, it’s the perfect time to catch up on the series: with two weeks remaining, there’s just enough time to watch the previous three seasons and experience the final along with the rest of the audience.

Why will Succession only have 4 seasons?

Despite the success of Succession, which has become one of the best and most popular series on HBO Max, the show will end after its fourth season. Creator Jesse Armstrong has confirmed that it will be the final season, driven by the responsibility to end the show on a high note.

HBO has expressed willingness to allow Succession to continue for one or even two more seasons, but Armstrong’s decision has been decisive. Therefore, the streaming service can only allow the show to conclude in the best possible way, as determined by its creator.

Undoubtedly, and despite the various theories, the ending of Succession will be impactful. In fact, all the previous season finales have been. The final episodes of the first, second, and third seasons left fans wanting more and surprised them with their boldness. Considering they now have an hour and a half to explain how everything wraps up, it’s clear that the ending will be a pleasant surprise.
