Who Will Return for Season 4 of Succession?
As you might expect, the core group will return for Season 4 with even more rebelliousness. Cox, Strong, Culkin, Snook, Ruck, Macfadyen, and Braun will all return as members of the Roy family conglomerate.
In addition to them, the following installment will feature Alexander Skarsgrd, Cherry Jones, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Arian Moayed, Juliana Canfield, Stephen Root, Hope Davis, and Justin Kirk.
J. Smith Cameron, Peter Friedman, David Rasche, Hiam Abbass, Fisher Stevens, Justine Lupe, Scott Nicholson, Zo Winters, and Jeannie Berlin have also been named as Season 4 cast members.
