Succession fans impatiently waiting for season four have been given an idea of when it’s going to arrive. 

A new teaser trailer, which was first aired during the season one finale of House of the Dragon in the US, confirmed that the new season of Succession will be released in the spring 2023. Whilst we still don’t have an exact date, at least we now have a much better idea of when we can rejoin the Roy family’s civil war. 

The trailer references the explosive ending of season three, when (spoiler alert if you’re not up to date), Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) gave a heads-up to Logan Roy (Brian Cox) about the siblings’ plot against him. Safe to say Tom’s tip-off allowed the family patriarch to have the upper hand in his bid to sanction the sale of Waystar Royco to Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård), while leaving the siblings (which included his wife Shiv) in a perilous position.

In the trailer, which has since been shared online, Tom says to his Shiv (Sarah Snook) “You want to talk about what happened?”

Elsewhere in the trailer, Logan says: “Everything I try to do, people turn against me." 

The synopsis for season four of the Jesse Armstrong series says: "The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is completed.”

It continues: "A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed."

The official Succession Twitter account, and Sky’s YouTube page, posted the new trailer with the caption: “The rebel alliance. New season. Spring 2023.”

As you can see from the teaser, Greg Braun’s character seems to still be in cahoots with Tom in jumping on to Logan’s side of the fence, and happy about it. And the Roy kids are continuing to scheme. 

We can’t wait to see what happens next!
