‘Succession’ Season 4 Trailer Sees Logan Roy Go Full Dictator

HBO has dropped the official trailer for Succession Season 4, teasing the ongoing chaos surrounding the Roy family. After witnessing one of the biggest TV betrayals at the end of season 3, the next chapter promises more twists and turns as the children attempt to overthrow their tyrannical father.

In the trailer, the “rebel alliance”, a.k.a the “new gen Roys”, team up as Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) attempt to take down their father, who has effectively screwed them out of Waystar Royco. The trailer also highlights the fallout of Tom’s betrayal at the end of season 3, asking Shiv, “Do you want to talk about what happened?”

Alternatively, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) seems unphased by his decision, relishing the thought of the upcoming battle. “I’m a hundred feet tall. These people are pygmies,” he says in the teaser, which premiered Sunday night ahead of the House of the Dragon Season 1 finale.

The official synopsis for season 4 reads: “The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) moves ever closer. The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is completed. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”

We are happy to report that the entire cast will be returning this season, including Cox, Snook, Strong, Alan Ruck, Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun and J.Smith-Cameron, with Skarsgård reprising his role as Mattsson. The highly anticipated 10-episode season will also feature Peter Friedman, David Rasche, Fisher Stevens, Hiam Abbass, Justine Lupe, Scott Nicholson, Zoë Winters and Jeannie Berlin.

Known for shooting in some of the most majestic locations in the world, Variety reported earlier this month that the Roys will take a trip to Matsson’s hometown in Norway, with producer Scott Ferguson confirming production took place across several sites in western Norway, including the Ramsdalen Gondola, the Atlantic Ocean Road and the Juvet Landscape Hotel.

“Norway is a glorious, natural setting. It immediately seemed like a perfect place for a family gathering in the series,” Ferguson told the publication on location in Norway. “We studied different countries, but we realized Norway just has this exceptional landscape — like nowhere else in the world.”

The fourth season of Succession is executive produced by series creator and showrunner Jesse Armstrong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod, Tony Roche, Scott Ferguson, Jon Brown, Lucy Prebble, Will Tracy and Will Ferrell.

Succession season 4 is scheduled for release in the first half of 2023. Watch the full trailer above.
