My Body Is Ready For ‘Succession’ Season 4
My Kieran Culkin prayer circle worked.
Everyone shut the hell up, because Succession Season 4 is officially returning to Binge on March 27, and there’s even a trailer to prove it.
Yep, salvation is here, and thank God for that; because Season 3 left things in a right biblical state. Judas, I mean, Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen) betrayed his wife Shiv (Sarah Snook) and the Roy boys by revealing their plans to usurp their father’s reign by taddling to Logan Roy (Brian Cox) himself. The failed coup left all the Roy siblings hung out to dry. But at least they have each other, right?
The new trailer kicks off with the three siblings putting on a united front as they walk onto a private jet, dodging a request to call their father. Roman’s (Kieran Culkin) roguish tone once again has me asking how this man is not the youngest Roy sibling. I fear that I will never move on from this.
Anyway, after confirming that the siblings are still all in this together, another big question came up: what hell is going to happen with Tom and Shiv? Tom asks Logan whether whether the two of them would still be good if Tom and Shiv were to “bust up”, to which Logan replies, “If we’re good, we’re good.” Classic Logan. Just random words.
The rest of the trailer offers a satisfying sneak peek into the various players of the Waystar empire gearing up for next stage of the battle; casting furtive glances, walking with purpose, and delivering dramatic one-liners. Shiv declares that it’s “not about getting back at Dad, but if it hurts him, it doesn’t bother me.” Kendall (Jeremy Strong) speaks of a “tightrope walk on a straight razor.” Gerri (J. Smith Cameron) is also there.
Waystar’s potential merger with streaming platform Gojo also hangs in the balance as CEO Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard) queries in his incredible accent, “are you tanking the deal?”. Oh, and the whole thing wraps up with Tom comparing the whole thing to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but “harder and much more important”. We missed you, Tom.
Summer has come and passed. Wake up me when March ends.
