What is the release date for 'Succession' Season 4?

On Oct. 26, 2021, HBO announced that they renewed Succession for a fourth season.

Unfortunately, the network has yet to reveal an official release date for Season 4, but based on the timing of each season, it's likely the network will premiere the fourth season in early to mid-2023.

With the COVID-19 pandemic still looming, Season 4 could face a few production delays and postponements. However, in October 2021, Brian Cox spoke with GQ UK and revealed that filming for Season 4 would start in June 2022.

In late February 2022, Alan Ruck, who portrays Connor Roy, attended the premiere of Hulu's miniseries, The Dropout, and supported Brian's claims, telling Variety that Season 4 starts filming at the end of June 2022.

As it turns out, both stars were correct. On June 27, HBO and the show's official Instagram account shared a photo of a clapperboard with the caption, "Production on Succession Season 4 has begun." Wow, we are so excited!

Check out the official synopsis, courtesy of HBO: "In the 10-episode season four, the sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson 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."

OK, they had us at 10 episodes.

All three seasons of Succession are streaming exclusively on HBO Max.
