“Before we started writing season four, around November, December 2021, I got together with a couple of my fellow writers, and I said, ‘Look, I think this might be the way it should be. But what do you think? We Various scenarios were tried: We could do a few short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could go on for a long time and turn the show into something completely different, a broader, more freewheeling, interesting show, There will be good weeks and bad weeks.

The message ends on whether succession Set to end in season four or five, Armstrong has been poking fun at it ever since the satirical drama exploded as an awards season darling.
“I’m deeply conflicted. I absolutely love the time we’ve edited — it’s been there for the entire season — but we haven’t put it out yet. I love the gap,” Armstrong said. “And I also really like that me and my close collaborators know that this might be a time like this, or this is it, and not have to face it in the world.

The Bloys also insisted that Succession is unlikely to get the spin-off treatment, which goes against the franchise strategy most conglomerates adopted in the Peak TV era. Still, Armstrong told The New Yorker that the door remains open to revisiting the Roy family’s power-hungry world: “I do think this succession story that we’re telling is done,” he said. “It’s muscle season that drains all of our reserves of interest, and I think there’s some pain in all of these very strong characters.
