“Succession” Season 4 is here, kicking off the final episodes of the Emmy-winning HBO series. The Roy family is at an inflection point as the final season begins: Logan (Brian Cox) has cut his children out once and for good, preparing to sell Waystar to a tech giant (headed up by Alexander Skarsgard’s Matsson) and severing ties with Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin).
After watching three seasons of jaw-dropping backstabbing and plot twists, all eyes are on how this thing ends, and if we’ll finally get an answer to the question posed in the show’s first episode: Who will succeed Logan Roy?
With that in mind, you may be wondering when new episodes of “Succession” air, and what time you can watch them (especially if you’re on the west coast). Here’s a complete “Succession” Season 4 episode release schedule.

Is This Really the Final Season of “Succession?”
Yes. Showrunner and creator Jesse Armstrong made the decision with his writers late last year that Season 4 would be the last season of the HBO series, despite HBO wanting more.
“We played out various scenarios: We could do a couple of short seasons, or two more seasons. Or we could go on for ages and turn the show into something rather different, and be a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show, where there would be good weeks and bad weeks,” Armstrong told the New Yorker. “Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference.”
“It’s been a difficult decision, because the collaborations — with the cast, with my fellow-writers, with Nick Britell and Mark Mylod and the other directors — they’ve just been so good,” he continued. “And I feel like I’ve done the best work I can do, working with them. And HBO has been generous and would probably have done more seasons, and they have been nice about saying, it’s your decision. That’s nice, but it’s also a responsibility in the end. It feels quite perverse to stop doing it.”
