Succession: Jesse Armstrong on Which Characters Are "Ripe" For Spinoff

Succession series creator Jesse Armstrong discusses ending the series, which characters (if any?) would be ripe for a spinoff, and more.

In six days, it's the beginning of the end – in more ways than one. With the fourth & final season of HBO & Jesse Armstrong's award-winning Succession kicking off on March 26th, there's only one thing standing in the way of Logan Roy's (Brian Cox) sale of Waystar Royco to Alexander Skarsgård's tech mogul Lukas Matsson. Well, not so much "one thing" as four Roys who aren't ready to roll over and let their future be sold out from underneath them. With the series having its premiere on Monday night, Deadline Hollywood had a chance to speak with Armstrong on the red carpet. In the two clips that you're about to see, the series creator addresses the decision to end the award-winning series (another season "didn't feel right") and the biggest challenge in ending it (making sure every storyline/character gets their fair share). And what about revisiting the "Succession" universe after the main series ends? Armstrong has some thoughts on if any of the characters would be "ripe" for a spinoff (it might surprise you).

Here's a look at Armstrong's comments from Monday night:
