“Succession” has succeeded.
The HBO hit cult series about the Roy family has been renewed for a fourth season.
This past Sunday’s episode scored 1.3 million viewers over all HBO platforms, so it makes sense to keep the Roys around.
HBO doesn’t say it, but it’s going to take at least five seasons to tell the whole story of this miserable, wealthy infighting gang of vipers. They make the Lannisters from “Game of Thrones” look like Mary Poppins.
The great thing about Season 3 is you can start watching it without knowing too much backstory. Son Kendall Roy is on a campaign to destroy his father, Logan. The rest of it is laid out very clearly. Jump in at any time!
