Oswestry screenwriter’s hit show Succession begins production on series four


Production has officially begun on the fourth series of the popular HBO Max series Succession, it has been announced.

The new series would consist of 10 episodes and would see the return of stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin as rival family Roy.

Jesse Armstrong, the Oswestry screenwriter who created the series, is back to helm the multi-award-winning program.

Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, and J Smith-Cameron are also set to return in season four.

Plot details are limited, but the series will feature further power struggles and ego-driven angst within the family as the sale of their media conglomerate Waystar Royco draws ever closer.

The show’s third season topped the television categories at several major awards shows this year, including the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors Guild (SAG).

Succession is also set to pick up multiple Emmy nominations next month.

Armstrong has also won personal awards for the program — and for previous hit shows, including the political comedy The Thick Of It — including an Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2019.
