Jesse Armstrong also answered questions about the planned length of the series.
One show no one wants to wait for is “Succession,” which ended its hit third season with a jaw-dropping finale. The series has already been renewed for a fourth season, and fans might see it sooner than they think. Speaking to the press at the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday, “Succession” creator Jesse Armstrong gave fans the clearest update yet.
“We’ve almost finished writing Season 4 here in London with the American writers coming in,” Armstrong said (via Variety). “It’s a really great group of people to talk about the nuances of character and the world and what we do on the show.”
“Succession” continues to be a huge hit for HBO with ratings getting better every year, and it remains a favorite in the Emmy race this fall. It won nine Primetime Emmy Awards in 2020, including the night’s top prize, Outstanding Drama Series. Jeremy Strong won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and Cherry Jones won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. The show also won Emmys in the writing, directing, casting, and editing categories.
Despite the series’ success, Armstrong said there was an eventual end in sight. When asked about his plans to end the series, Armstrong was coy, though he was careful to note that all is going well right now.
“I won’t answer that one specifically,” he said. “I don’t think it should last forever. But we’re still having fun right now.
