Premise

Succession follows the Roy family, owners of media conglomerate Waystar RoyCo. The family patriarch, Logan Roy (Cox), has experienced a decline in health. His four children – removed oldest son Connor (Ruck), power-hungry Kendall (Strong), irreverent Roman (Culkin), and politically savvy Siobhan (Snook) – all with varying degrees of connection to the company, begin to prepare for a future without their father,[9] and each begins vying for prominence within the company.

Cast and characters

  • Hiam Abbass as Marcia Roy (seasons 1–2; recurring season 3), the third wife of Logan Roy. Born and raised in Beirut, she is often at odds with Logan's children, whose trust she has yet to earn. She has a son, Amir, from her first marriage. She also has a daughter from a previous relationship.
  • Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch, the bumbling yet opportunistic great-nephew of Logan Roy and grandson of Ewan Roy. Greg is unfamiliar with the rough terrain he must navigate to win over Logan, and finds himself indentured to Tom Wambsgans in his quest for a place at Waystar and with the family.
  • Brian Cox as Logan Roy, the Dundee-born billionaire founder of media and entertainment conglomerate Waystar RoyCo. He is a brash leader whose primary focus is his company rather than his four children Connor, Kendall, Roman and Siobhan. He is married to Marcia, his third wife.
  • Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, the third and youngest son of Logan Roy from his second marriage. Roman is immature, does not take responsibilities seriously and often finds himself lacking the common sense his father requires of him. He is frequently at odds with his brother Kendall and sometimes his sister Shiv, with whom he is often vying for power and attention from their father.
  • Peter Friedman as Frank Vernon, COO and later vice-chairman of Waystar RoyCo and longtime confidant of Logan Roy. Frank is a member of Logan's old guard on whom Kendall frequently relies to help win back Logan's favor. He is Kendall's mentor and godfather, and is disliked by Roman.
  • Natalie Gold as Rava Roy (season 1; recurring season 3), Kendall's former wife with whom he has two children.
  • Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans, Shiv's fiancé and then husband, and a Waystar executive who is promoted from heading the amusement park and cruise division to running ATN, the company's global news outlet. He is a people-pleaser and enjoys his proximity to the Roy family's power but is frequently dismissed by the family's inner circle, and uses underlings like Greg to wield his power.
  • Alan Ruck as Connor Roy, the eldest son of Logan Roy from his first marriage. Prone to delusions of grandeur, Connor is mostly removed from corporate affairs, residing at a ranch in New Mexico with his young girlfriend Willa and deferring to his siblings on most firm-related matters. In season 2, he announces his bid for President of the United States, citing his interest in politics from a young age.
  • Parker Sawyers as Alessandro Daniels (season 1), an executive of Waystar RoyCo, who is present during the Vaulter acquisition meetings. Sawyers is credited with the main cast in the pilot episode only.
  • Sarah Snook as Siobhan "Shiv" Roy, the youngest child and only daughter of Logan Roy from his second marriage. She was a left-leaning political fixer, working for a time for presidential candidate Gil Eavis, whose political views clash with Waystar. She eventually leaves politics in order to focus on building a future at Waystar. She is engaged and then married to Tom Wambsgans, but their relationship becomes gradually turbulent.
  • Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, the second son of Logan Roy from his second marriage. The presumed successor to Logan, Kendall is struggling to prove his worth to his father amid bungling major deals and battling with substance abuse, as well as toiling to maintain a relationship with his former wife Rava, his siblings and his children.
  • Rob Yang as Lawrence Yee (seasons 1–2), the founder of media website Vaulter that is acquired by Waystar RoyCo. He holds great contempt for Waystar and Kendall in particular, with whom he is often at odds.
  • Dagmara Domińczyk as Karolina Novotney (seasons 2–3; recurring season 1), the head of PR for Waystar RoyCo and a member of the company's legal team.
  • Arian Moayed as Stewy Hosseini (season 2; recurring seasons 1, 3), Kendall's friend from The Buckley School and Harvard who is now a private-equity investor with a seat on Waystar's board. He is covertly in partnership with Logan's rival Sandy Furness.
  • J. Smith-Cameron as Gerri Kellman (seasons 2–3; recurring season 1), the general counsel to Waystar RoyCo, who is also godmother to Siobhan and a mentor to Roman.
  • Justine Lupe as Willa Ferreyra (season 3; recurring seasons 1–2), Connor Roy's young girlfriend who is a former call girl and an aspiring playwright.[10]
  • David Rasche as Karl Muller (season 3; recurring seasons 1–2), Waystar RoyCo's chief financial officer and member of the company's legal team.[10]
  • Fisher Stevens as Hugo Baker (season 3; recurring season 2), a senior communications executive for Parks and Cruises in charge of managing a scandal involving Brightstar cruise lines.[10]

The next morning, Kendall and Greg are flown back to New York for a press conference, where the former is set to accept responsibility for the company's handling of the crimes. However, Kendall suddenly deviates from his prepared remarks and instead blames Logan, announcing that his father was well aware of the misconduct and personally oversaw the ensuing legal settlements. Greg is present at the conference with the probative documents. Logan, who is watching a telecast of Kendall's statement, smiles enigmatically.

211"Secession"Mark MylodJesse ArmstrongOctober 17, 2021 (2021-10-17)0.564[34]
Picking up immediately after Kendall's press conference, Logan decides to split his inner circle into two teams: he, Tom, Karl, Frank and Hugo station themselves in Sarajevo (which has no extradition treaty with the U.S.) while Roman, Gerri and Shiv are sent back to New York. Logan informs his team that he intends to temporarily step back as CEO; the family and company management debate who should take his place as a figurehead. Kendall, meanwhile, sets up a temporary base of operations at Rava's apartment, and hires two PR consultants to help steward his public image. He makes calls to most of Waystar's inner circle, hoping to sway more of the senior cadre to his side, but is only able to reach Frank. Shiv attempts to acquire legal representation for Waystar from Lisa Arthur, a high-profile New York attorney and personal friend, but realizes Kendall has already contacted her. In light of Shiv's perceived failure, Gerri is named interim CEO.
222"Mass in Time of War"Mark MylodJesse ArmstrongOctober 24, 2021 (2021-10-24)0.520[35]
Shiv, Roman and Connor covertly meet with Kendall to understand his motives against Logan, as well as potentially getting him to back down. Kendall refuses to compromise and attempts to persuade his siblings to join him. However, the discussion falls apart when Kendall declares that he will be CEO under their new arrangement. Seeing no personal benefit from siding with Kendall, the three siblings ultimately decide to remain aligned with Logan. Kendall additionally meets with Stewy and Sandi Furness (Sandy's daughter) to propose a partnership ahead of the company's shareholder meeting, but they remain skeptical. Greg, fearing legal reprisals for making copies of the cruises documents, consults with Ewan, who hires his personal attorney to represent Greg. Logan has Marcia flown in to Sarajevo after his legal team advises that the two publicly appear reconciled. Marcia, disgruntled over Logan's infidelity, demands several assurances from the company to ensure her cooperation. Logan returns to New York and names Shiv President of Domestic Operations at Waystar, assuring her she is under Gerri's protection.
233"The Disruption"Cathy YanTed Cohen & Georgia PritchettOctober 31, 2021 (2021-10-31)0.405[36]
Both Kendall and Logan take steps to boost their respective public profiles. Logan refuses to cooperate with the Department of Justice's impending investigation, and attempts to pressure White House aide Michelle-Anne Vanderhoven into granting him favors from the President. Tom offers to take the fall by allowing himself to be incarcerated, but privately contacts a lawyer. Against the advice of his legal counselors, Kendall forces himself into Waystar's offices and finds that most of his security privileges have been revoked. He then sabotages Shiv's speech at a company town hall intended to allay employee grievances by blasting Nirvana's "Rape Me" from a speaker; an irate Shiv retaliates by publishing an open letter personally attacking Kendall and calling his mental health into question. Kendall prepares to make an appearance on a late-night comedy show that has been disparaging him, but backs out at the last minute after Shiv's letter goes online, deeply shaken by its contents. The FBI raid Waystar's offices, forcing Logan to cooperate.
244"Lion in the Meadow"Robert Pulcini & Shari Springer BermanJon BrownNovember 7, 2021 (2021-11-07)0.484[37]
With the company under increased scrutiny after the FBI raid, Logan asks Shiv to get ATN to cover the White House more critically, in the hopes that it will pressure the President into granting Logan favors. Shiv manages to strongarm anchor Mark Ravenhead into pivoting on his editorial position. However, she finds that she is receiving little respect or support either from within the company or from Logan. Tom begins to unravel over his growing fear of going to prison, as well as the frustration he feels at having to report to his wife. Greg informs him he has signed an agreement with Waystar's legal defense team after meeting with Logan. Shareholder Josh Aaronson requests a meeting with Logan and Kendall, worried that their conflict will endanger his investment, and leads them on a walk around his private island to hear each side's arguments. However, Kendall and Logan fail to present a united front, and Logan suffers from exhaustion on the walk back to Josh's mansion, refusing help until he nearly collapses. Kendall is later informed that Josh has lost confidence in Waystar's current leadership, and witnesses him meeting with Stewy.
255"Retired Janitors of Idaho"Kevin BrayTony Roche & Susan Soon He StantonNovember 14, 2021 (2021-11-14)0.584[38]
At the Waystar RoyCo annual shareholder meeting, both Kendall and Logan's factions attempt to broker a settlement with Stewy and Sandi (largely negotiating on behalf of her ailing father), realizing that going to a vote would almost certainly deprive the Roys of their majority stake in the company. Logan, who is suffering from a urinary tract infection, initially refuses Sandy's terms, but he becomes increasingly incoherent, forcing the other children and senior management to negotiate on his behalf. The vote is stalled while Shiv and Sandi manage to reach a deal offering either side an additional board seat; the two sides agree on the terms without waiting for an incapacitated Logan to approve. Karl announces the decision to the shareholders, but Kendall interrupts his speech to make an impromptu statement in support of the cruises' victims. The President calls the Roys to announce that he will not be seeking a second term amid the blowback from ATN's attacks, jeopardizing Waystar's political survival. Ewan decides to donate his entire estate to Greenpeace, leaving Greg with no inheritance. Logan cuts off contact with Kendall.
266"What It Takes"Andrij ParekhWill TracyNovember 21, 2021 (2021-11-21)0.525[39]
Kendall prepares to submit the documents he has retrieved on the cruises scandal to the Department of Justice. However, his testimony goes poorly, and Lisa warns that the documents are insufficient legal ammunition to win his case against Waystar. An unsatisfied Kendall dispenses with Lisa's services and hires new attorneys. Meanwhile, the rest of the Roys travel to Richmond, Virginia to attend the Future Freedom Summit, a conservative political fundraiser for potential presidential candidates in the upcoming election. While there, Roman learns that Caroline is getting married in Tuscany to Peter Munion. Kendall arrives in Virginia and privately meets with Tom in an attempt to sway him to his side, but Tom is not confident in Kendall's ability to succeed against his father. Among the presidential candidates, Shiv supports Congressman Rick Salgado, a traditional conservative who suggests to Shiv that he can make her Waystar's CEO, while Roman takes a liking to Jeryd Mencken, a controversial figure with fascist leanings. Logan decides to back Mencken despite Shiv's protests.
277"Too Much Birthday"Lorene ScafariaGeorgia Pritchett & Tony RocheNovember 28, 2021 (2021-11-28)0.645[40]
The company receives word that the DOJ investigation is weakening and will likely end in a settlement. Tom is deeply relieved to be avoiding prison time. Logan, who has been working to acquire streaming giant GoJo, discovers that its CEO, Lukas Matsson, declined to meet him personally. Shiv and Roman attend Kendall's lavish 40th birthday party to negotiate with Matsson, who is in attendance. Roman delivers his and Logan's gift to Kendall: an offer to buy out his shares in Waystar for $2 billion. Shiv is angered when she learns she has been excluded as a beneficiary. Roman meets with Matsson alone and proposes that Waystar buy GoJo without Matsson ever having to report directly to Logan, an offer Matsson expresses interest in. Kendall, feeling hurt by the buyout offer and upset at the hollowness of the party, has an emotional breakdown while searching for his children's gift and has Naomi take him home.
288"Chiantishire"Mark MylodJesse ArmstrongDecember 5, 2021 (2021-12-05)TBD
The Roys travel to Tuscany for Caroline's wedding. Kendall demands a sit-down with Logan over dinner, where he requests taking the $2 billion buyout to permanently uncouple himself from his "evil" father, but Logan refuses. Caroline admits to Shiv she never wanted children and encourages Shiv not to bear one of her own; out of spite, Shiv asks to have a child with Tom, but tells him during sex that she does not love him, later passing it off as foreplay. GoJo's stock price soars after Matsson sends a tweet suggesting he has received major financing; Roman goes to meet him and discovers that Matsson is interested in a merger of equals with Waystar rather than an acquisition. Logan accepts the renewed terms, but Waystar's meeting with GoJo's bankers is derailed when Roman mistakenly sends a photo of his penis to Logan instead of Gerri. Kendall is seen drunkenly floating facedown in his pool, slowly letting his head sink into the water.

Production

Development

Showrunner Jesse Armstrong initially conceived the series as a feature film about the Murdoch family, but the script never went into production. Armstrong eventually expanded the scope of the story to include the larger landscape of Wall Street, which he felt better suited for a television format. Armstrong wrote a new script centered on original characters loosely inspired by various powerful media families such as the Murdochs, the Redstones and the Sulzbergers.[42] On June 6, 2016, it was announced that HBO had given the production a pilot order. The episode was written by Armstrong and directed by Adam McKay. Executive producers for the pilot include Armstrong, McKay, Will Ferrell, Frank Rich, and Kevin Messick.[43][44][45] On May 16, 2017, it was announced that HBO had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The previously announced creative team continued their involvement as the series entered into production.[46][47][48][49][50][51]

On November 17, 2017, it was reported that Nicholas Britell would serve as the series' composer.[52] On April 26, 2018, it was announced that the series would premiere on June 3, 2018.[53] On June 11, 2018, HBO renewed the series for a second season.[54] On May 23, 2019, it was announced that the second season would premiere on August 11, 2019.[55]

On August 20, 2019, HBO renewed the series for a third season.[6] On March 28, 2020, HBO announced the third season's production was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[56] The third season premiered on October 17, 2021.[7] In June 2021, executive producer Georgia Pritchett commented that the series would not go beyond five seasons, and possibly would end after season four.[57] On October 26, 2021, HBO renewed the series for a fourth season.[58]

Casting

On October 6, 2016, it was announced that Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Nicholas Braun, and Matthew Macfadyen had been cast in lead roles in the series' pilot.[59] On November 4, 2016, it was announced that Hiam Abbass, Alan Ruck, Rob Yang, Parker Sawyers, and Peter Friedman had also joined the main cast of the pilot.[60] On January 24, 2018, it was reported that Ashley Zukerman had joined the series in a recurring role.[61] On March 7, 2018, it was reported that Jake Choi had been cast in a recurring role.[62] On May 21, 2019, Holly Hunter joined the cast in a recurring role in the second season.[63]

Filming

The series is primarily filmed in New York City, and shot on 35 mm film using Arriflex 35 cameras.[70] Director Adam McKay filmed the pilot in late 2016,[71] while principal photography for the rest of the first season of the series began in October 2017.[72] Locations used throughout the series include the American Irish Historical Society on Fifth Avenue as the location for Logan's apartment, 714 Broadway as the location of Siobhan "Shiv" Roy's apartment, and the Downtown Manhattan Heliport on the East River for scenes of the Roys departing on their helicopters. For scenes depicting the interiors of the Waystar RoyCo offices, the crew uses towers 4 and 7 of the World Trade Center, while 28 Liberty Street is used for exterior shots. Silvercup Studios in Queens houses many of the sets used for the series.[73]

Other filming locations for the first season included Bellevue Hospital (where the second episode took place), the Cunard Building on 25 Broadway (which houses Cipriani S.A., the venue for a gala in the fourth episode), the East New York Freight Tunnel (the entrance of a bachelor party in the eighth episode),[74] and the Financial District of Manhattan.[75] From mid-January 2018 to the end of the month, the production moved from New York to New Mexico for the episode "Austerlitz", which was primarily filmed in Santa Fe.[76][77][78][79][72] On February 22, 2018, filming took place in New Jersey which required the closing of the Atlantic City-Brigantine tunnel.[80][81][82] On February 25, 2018, filming took place at Eastnor Castle near Ledbury in Herefordshire, England, which served as the setting for the last two episodes of the season.[83]

The second season saw a significant increase in location shifts. The opening scenes of the season premiere were shot on location in Iceland,[84] while Henry Ford II's 1960 estate in the Hamptons was used as the Roys' summer home.[85] Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York stood in for the Roys' hunting lodge in Hungary, as depicted in the episode "Hunting".[86] Filming also occurred in Long Island, with a mansion once belonging to Junius Spencer Morgan featuring prominently in the episode "Tern Haven".[87] The estate is one of several in the area used as filming locations for the second season.[88] From April through May 2019, the production recruited extras for filming in Lake Placid, and Lake George, New York, where the episode "Argestes" was shot.[89] Production moved to Dundee, Scotland for the eighth episode, with additional filming taking place in Glasgow and Ayr.[90] Starting from July 17, 2019, the crew filmed in Korčula, Croatia, for the second-season finale, including extensive scenes on a yacht.[91][92]

Filming for season 3, which was slated to begin in April 2020, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[93] In early November 2020, star Alan Ruck announced that filming would begin in mid-November in New York City.[94] The season had begun filming in New York as of December 2020.[10][95] Filming locations in the city included the Woolworth Building in Tribeca, The Shed in Hudson Yards, and a number of hotels including the Marriott Marquis in Times Square and the Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue. Production also returned to the Hamptons, at locations including Montauk and Wainscott.[73] In May, additional filming for season 3 occurred in Richmond, Virginia, primarily at the Jefferson Hotel.[96][97] In June, production on the third season moved to Italy for the final two episodes,[98][99] with filming primarily taking place in the Val d'Orcia region of Tuscany - where a wedding reception was filmed at the villas La Foce and Villa Cetinale. Additional filming took place in other nearby communes in the province of Siena - including Pienza and Montalcino - as well as in Cortona, Lake Como, Milan, and Florence (the lattermost of which was used for establishing shots in the opening episodes).[100][99][96][101]
