Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, SUCCESSION is a one-hour drama series that follows the Roy family -- Logan Roy and his four adult children, Kendall, Roman, Shiv and Connor -- who control one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. Members of the Roy family grapple with what the future holds for them as their aging father begins to take a step back from the company. Mckay also directed the pilot. Set in New York, SUCCESSION explores themes of power, politics, money and family. Logan, the tough and 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. Kendall, Logan's eldest son from his second marriage, is currently a division president at the firm and the heir apparent. Roman, Kendall's younger brother, is Logan's outspoken, fun-loving son and no longer works at Waystar. Siobhan 'Shiv' Roy, Logan's only daughter and youngest child, has been pursuing a career in politics. Connor, Logan's eldest son, and only child from his first marriage, has pursued an independent life in New Mexico. In the series premiere, the Roy siblings are reunited with their younger cousin, Greg, who has moved from Canada to New York, seeking a foothold in the management of the firm's theme parks. On the periphery of the Roy family are Tom, Shiv's ambitious boyfriend and a senior executive at the firm, and Rava Roy, Kendall's wife, with whom he shares two children and an emotional bond, despite their marital separation. Frank (Peter Friedman) is the firm's COO, an old family friend, and a mentor to Kendall. In an effort to solidify his takeover of Waystar, Kendall is on the brink of buying out a digital media outfit from Lawrence, its CEO and founder.
On Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, HBO premiered the Season 1 finale of SUCCESSION. In the 70-minute season ender, "Nobody Is Ever Missing," news of a hostile takeover breaks; Kendall eyes an escape outlet. Two months earlier -- on Monday, June 11 -- HBO renewed SUCCESSION for a second season.
