HBO’s smash hit drama about a media mogul’s family vying for control of his empire, Succession, will end with its fourth season. Kieran Culkin, a star of the show, who plays Roman Roy, thinks the show could continue for longer.
Kieran Culkin disagrees with co-star Brian Cox, who has said the show will end after season 4, and he voiced his displeasure with the decision in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
Kieran Culkin Speaks his Mind
Kieran Culkin said he hadn’t had much time to think about the show’s conclusion because production wrapped only three weeks before the interview.
“I think so. It hasn’t hit me because we only finished like three weeks ago shooting and I just have not processed it. I’m pretty sure. Yeah. What’s the thing? Depression. That’ll hit.”

The interview took a humorous turn when Fallon pointed out Kieran Culkin’s awkward sitting positions during the show. Culkin said he hadn’t noticed them until after the second season when fans pointed them out to him.
The topic then shifted back to the show’s future, with Kieran Culkin expressing his disagreement with Cox’s claim that the show will end after season four.
“I mean, it could have gone more. And I feel like in the way that we end, it feels sort of like there still could be more. But I think it’s also a satisfying end. It’s nice. I don’t know if the options were go out on high when there could be more or stay at the party a little too long. I’d rather take the former.”
It’s unclear whether Culkin’s comments are based on insider information or simply expressing his hope that the show will continue.

Another Round of Succession?
It’s hard to imagine Succession lasting any longer than Season 4, but it’s not impossible. The show has been well-received by critics and audiences alike, earning a slew of accolades and a legion of devoted followers.
But showrunner Jesse Armstrong has said in the past that he has an ending in mind for the series, which may indicate that it was always meant to have a limited run. A new set of writers and a different direction for the show’s fifth season are both viable options for keeping it on the air.

It’s not completely out of the question that there will be more Succession episodes. As evidenced by the announcement of a Sex and the City revival titled And Just Like That…, HBO has a history of reviving beloved series. It remains to be seen if Succession will be as successful as its predecessors, but Culkin’s comments give fans reason for optimism.
Succession has significantly impacted television with its sharp writing, incredible performances, and scathing critique of wealth and power, regardless of whether the show continues. It’s understandable why Kieran Culkin and many others are reluctant to say goodbye to the Roys.
Succession Season 4 is streaming on HBO Max.
