After the future of Succession has been confirmed, fans are already anticipating more Roy family stories, but the end is in sight according to Georgia Pritchett.
Writer and co-executive producer Pritchett, who is also the showrunner of the upcoming Apple TV + series The narrowing next door, spoke to News week on the future of Succession and how it could end.
It was announced on October 26, 2021 that Succession has been officially renewed for season 4, although season 3 has only just started on HBO and HBO Max.
According to Pritchett, there could be even more to come for the show after Season 4. She said News week: “I couldn’t say of course, it’s up to Jesse Armstrong [the creator]. But yes, we still have plenty of ideas. “
Succession started in 2018 and has continued to grow in popularity, apparently getting bigger and bigger with the launch of each new season.
Although Season 4 has been announced, there is no confirmation as to when it will launch, or how many seasons there will be after that, however, Pritchett confirms that there are many more stories to tell for the Roy family at WayStar.
Looking forward to a potential season 5 of Succession and beyond that she said, “So yeah, we have a lot of ideas and we have a great end in sight. So I think we know where we’re going.”
Pritchett is credited with writing three episodes of Succession, including the last episode 3 of season 3, “The Disruption”.
The narrowing next door on Apple TV +
British writer and producer Pritchett has a strong catalog of dramatic comedies, including Succession, Veep, The thickness of it, and his latest show is a continuation of that clever comedy theme.
The narrowing next door is based on an original podcast series of the same name, which told the true story of a psychiatrist who, over the course of 27 years, implanted himself in the life of one of his patients for personal gain.
Paul Rudd plays psychiatrist Dr Isaac Herschkopf while Will Ferrell plays unwitting victim Martin Markowitz. Catherine Hahn (WandaVision) also stars as Martin’s sister Phyliss Markowitz with Casey Wilson (Happy endings) playing Isaac Bonnie Herschkopf’s wife.
When adapting the true story for television, Pritchett admits that some of the facts were actually too far-fetched. She said: âIf anything, we cut it down because there was so much ground to cover.
âI think that was another reason I wanted to have this mix of drama and comedy because I think if we hadn’t believed in these men and didn’t feel grounded in this relationship, I think “It would have been so easy to end up laughing at them or turning on them,” she said.
The first three episodes of The narrowing next door launch on Apple TV + on Friday, November 12, with each subsequent episode airing weekly.
Succession continues Sundays on HBO and HBO Max.
