Will There Be Succession Season 5 Well, folks, Season 4 of Succession is finally over, and Waystar's structure has changed for good. But the show ended in a way that left a lot of questions unanswered, and the Roy family is still in trouble, so many fans are asking if there will be a new season.
That's right, you should never say “never” about Succession, because there is still hope that one of the best TV shows of all time will come back for a new season.
All but one of the Succession characters were happy with how things ended in the last episode, which means there is still a lot of room for more plots, power plays, and betrayals.
So, keeping that in mind, Crossover99 is here to tell you everything you need to know about the possible return of Succession. Here is everything we know about Waystar's future, from when Succession season 5 will come out to who will be in it.
Succession Season 5: Will There be Succession Season 5?
Succession Season 5 hasn't been given a release date yet, but if the show is revived, we think it will come out sometime in 2025.
Succession season 4 is supposed to be the last season of the show, but strange things have happened on great shows before, and with a fairly open ending, it would be silly not to get ready for a possible season 5.
Jesse Armstrong has also left the door open for more Succession. In an interview with The New Yorker, he said that there is more to go back to if people want it.
“When I've talked to some of my coworkers about the end of the show, I've said things like, “Maybe there's another part of this world we could go back to if there was interest?” He said. “Maybe there's something else we could do that would take advantage of what's good about how we've been working on this.
So that's another feeling that's real.”
Who Will Be in the Cast of Succession Season 5?
If Succession gets a fifth season, we should see all the key characters back in action. So, Jeremy Strong will play Kendall Roy, Kieran Culkin will play Roman, and Sarah Snook will play Shiv.
Along with the main brothers, major returning cast members include Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch, Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans, and Alexander Skarsgard as GoJo CEO Lukas Matsson.
Here is what we know about the cast of Succession season 5:
- Jeremy Strong plays Kendall Roy.
- Sarah Snook as Siobhan “Shiv” Roy
- Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy
- Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch
- Tom Wambsgans, played by Matthew Macfadyen
- Alan Ruck played Connor. Roy
- Alexander Skarsgård as Lukas Matsson.
What Will the Fifth Season of Succession Be About?
We don't know what will happen in Succession season 5, but if we had to guess, it would either be a flashback or follow Kendall's new business.
Succession season 4 episode 10 ended with Lukas Matsson buying out Waystar after the GoJo deal went through. Tom was put in charge of Waystar as the new CEO. So, since Kendall is no longer working for him, he will need to find something else to do.
Kendall's whole world was Waystar, so when it was taken away from him, we think he will be determined to get enough money to buy it back or destroy it as a way to get even. Even though the credits have rolled on Succession season 4, Kendall's story feels like it's not over.
The other option for Succession Season 5 is that it could be a spin-off, like the other hugely popular Max show, House of the Dragon. In the same way that House of the Dragon showed us the world before Game of Thrones, Succession season 5 could show us the rise of Logan Roy's media kingdom and how he started Waystar.

How Many Episodes Are There in Season 5 of Succession?
Even though we don't know how many episodes there will be in Succession Season 5, we think there will be ten, just like there were in Season 4.
Succession's fourth season was just the right length, and we don't think Armstrong will change his usual way of telling stories, which works well.
Where Can I Watch the Fifth Season of Succession?
Season 5 of Succession will be available to view on Max in the US and on Now TV in the UK.
We'll have to wait until we know for sure that the show is happening before we know where we can watch it.
If it does get renewed, though, we're ready to bet that it will be available on these platforms, just like in previous seasons.
