HBO’s staggering family drama wrapped up its third instalment last December, and audiences clearly can’t get enough of Logan Roy (played by Brian Cox) and the constant bickering between the dysfunctional, entitled heirs to his multi-billion dollar media conglomerate. New episodes of Succession are currently in the works, but sadly it may be some time before the popular satire returns to screens.

Brian Cox is still waiting to get started on the new season of Succession.

At the end of last year’s outing, his tyrannical Logan Roy ousted his children from WayStar RoyCo by renegotiating his divorce settlement.

His decision could lose his children millions as they are now no longer entitled to inherit the company once he passes away.

Kendall (Jeremy Strong) had already declared war on his father, and now it seems both Siobhan (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) will be joining the fight.

However, their own civil war is far from over as it was Shiv’s husband Tom (Matthew Macfadyen) who tipped Logan off about their plans to revolt.

With several threads still dangling heading into the highly anticipated fifth season, fans will be wondering when they can expect the next run of Succession to begin on HBO and Sky.

Unfortunately, in a recent interview with Deadline, the show’s patriarch has admitted he’s still unsure when filming for the new episodes will begin.

When asked if production had started, acclaimed actor Brian revealed: “No, no, no.”

“We are still waiting on the writers. We’re like Blanche DuBois. We depend on the kindness of our writers.”

Headed up by Peep Show’s Jesse Armstrong, Succession also employs some of the most accomplished voices in TV to pen the drama’s sharp and devastating scripts.

Veep and The Thick of It mainstay Tony Roche co-wrote two of last year’s best episodes.

Additionally, Susan Soon He Stanton, Georgia Pritchett and Ted Cohen all returned for Succession season three.

Hopefully, they’re already deep into preparation for the next season, though full details on the next slate of writers and directors are currently scarce.

As the series progresses, Brian admits he is starting to see some similarities between himself and his terrifying on-screen persona.

“Of course, there are overlaps,” he confirmed. “There’s bound to be overlaps.

“I mean, the similarity between me and Logan Roy is that we do share the disappointment in the human experiment.”

Although Brian shares some of Logan’s cynicism, the actor himself hasn’t quite given up on the state of the world just yet.

He explained: “He really thinks that we’re doomed, whereas I feel the opposite.

“You know, as long as the conversation keeps going on, I’m an optimist.”

Although Succession’s latest release was delayed by the Covid pandemic, hopefully, fans can remain equally optimistic about the wait for season four being much shorter this time around.

Succession seasons 1-3 are available to stream on HBO Max in the US and NOW in the UK.
