Succession premieres


The series follows the Roy family who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. The show tracks their lives as they contemplate what the future will hold for them once their aging father begins to step back from the company.

Succession explores themes of power, politics, money, and family. Logan Roy, the tough, powerful, aging patriarch, is head of Waystar Royco, a family-controlled international media conglomerate. He is married to his third wife, Marcia, a loving, formidable partner.

The Roys control the world’s fifth-largest media conglomerate, whose cable-news network leans conservative. The patriarch is a crusty octogenarian with roots in traditional journalism and the British Commonwealth.
