It's a good day to be a Succession fan – the HBO series has dropped a thrilling new trailer and confirmed the premiere date for season 4.


The new season will follow on from the shocking events of season 3's finale, which saw siblings Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Shiv (Sarah Snook) fail to overthrow their tyrannical father Logan (Brian Cox) after the media mogul was tipped off about his children's revolt by Shiv's husband Tom (Matthew Macfadyen).

In the new trailer, it appears Logan may be willing to reach out to his offspring – but they're all about finding a way to wrestle control of the empire away from him for good.

Meanwhile, Tom's newfound alliance with Logan appears to be fragile at best. Surely it won't be long before he pays the price for his betrayal?

The new footage also teases the marriage of Connor (Alan Ruck) and Willa (Justine Lupe).

The best news of all is that we've got just two months to wait till Succession is back on our screens, with season 4 launching on HBO in the US on 26th March, with each episode available at the same time via Sky and NOW in the UK, beginning at 2am on 27th March.

The official synopsis for season 4 reads: "The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) moves ever closer. 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 complete."
