’Succession’ Season 4 Teaser Sets up the Rebel Alliance at Waystar Royco
The first official teaser for the fourth season of Succession, which dropped during the House of the Dragon finale, is pure perfection.
Following the events of the final episode of season 3, Logan Roy (Brian Cox) is now cockier than ever. He is preparing to sell his company to Aleksander Skarsgård’s GoJo — “I’m a hundred feet tall. These people are pygmies,” says Roy in the trailer, presumably to Skarsgård. Connor Roy (Alan Ruck) then welcomes his three siblings, describing them as the Rebel Alliance. The three of them turned against their father during the dramatic events of the season 3 finale, and found that Logan was three steps ahead. Why? Because he’d been tipped off by none other than Tom (Matthew Macfadyen), who in the trailer seemingly tries to fix things with Shiv (Sarah Snook). “Do you want to talk about what happened?” We certainly do. But while we wait, let’s watch the trailer:
More shenanigans from the Roy family are expected this season, which is shaping up to be one for the memory. The entire cast is returning, as it couldn’t be any other way, and they will also be joined by a few supporting characters, including Alexander Skarsgård (Lukas Mattson), Dagmara Domińczyk (Karolina), Arian Moayed (Stewy), Juliana Canfield (Kendall’s assistant Jess), Annabelle Dexter-Jones (Naomi Pierce), Cherry Jones (Nan Pierce), Hope Davis (Sandi Furness), Justin Kirk (Congressman Jeryd Mencken), and Stephen Root (Ron Petkus, the organizer of the Future Freedom Summit).
Season 4 began production earlier this year, and will consist of 10 episodes. They are to be released during the spring of 2023, less than a year and a half after the shocking season three finale, whose final 20 minutes are among the best television content of the last five years. Succession, arguably the best show on television at the moment, has won 13 Emmys over the course of three seasons, including Best Drama Series on all three entries. The last season received 25 nominations, of which it won four — Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor (Matthew Macfadyen), Best Writing (Jesse Armstrong for All The Bells Say), and Best Casting (Avy Kaufman & Francine Maisler).
Miguel Fernández is a Spanish student that has movies as his second passion in life. His favorite movie of all time is The Lord of the Rings, but he is also a huge Star Wars fan. However, fantasy movies are not his only cup of tea, as authors like Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he started to understand the language of filmmaking. He is that guy who will watch a black and white movie, just because it is in black and white.
