Succession star Sarah Snook had no clue that the hit HBO drama would be coming to an end with season 4 until the final table read.
It was officially confirmed in February that Jesse Armstrong’s multi-award-winning show would be wrapped up with the upcoming instalment, which is set for release on March 26.
Ahead of the final series airing, Shiv Roy actress Snook shared that she was a little late to find out and expressed her disappointment at not being informed sooner.
‘I was very upset,’ Snook said upon learning that Succession would not be filming a fifth chapter.
‘I felt a huge sense of loss, disappointment, sadness. It would’ve been nice to know at the beginning of the season, but I also understand not being told until the end because there was still a potential that maybe this wasn’t going to be the end.’
Speaking to Los Angeles Times, Snook added: ‘Emotionally, all of us weren’t necessarily ready to be done with the show because we love each other so much.
‘But everything has to come to an end, and it’s smart not to let something become a parody of itself.’
Succession creator Armstrong admitted the conclusion of the HBO drama – which also stars Brian Cox, Matthew Macfadyen, and Kieran Culkin – has always been ‘present’ in his mind.
He also said that he had been actively considering when to finish the show since the second series.
‘You know, there’s a promise in the title of Succession,’ he said.
‘I’ve never thought this could go on forever The end has always been kind of present in my mind.
‘From season two, I’ve been trying to think: Is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?’
