An HBO drama from creator Jesse Armstrong, Succession stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Natalie Gold, Peter Friedman, and Rob Yang. Unfolding in New York, Succession follows the Roy family, which controls the Waystar Royco media conglomerate. Since patriarch Logan (Cox) is turning 80, the rest of the family is preparing for him to step aside. Logan, however, doesn’t intend to step down. Instead, he unveils his new plan to choose his successor, which throws the whole clan for a loop.
