Big news, all you (potentially) poisoned donut eaters: Everyone’s favorite Manhattan media family drama, Succession, will return for Season 4. Though we’re only two episodes into Season 3, on October 26 HBO officially announced that the Roys will continue battling it out for control over Waystar Royco in a fourth season of the hit series.

Created by Jesse Armstrong and starring Brian Cox, Sarah Snook, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, and Nicholas Braun, the critical darling took home seven Emmy Awards last year, including best drama series. The long-awaited, Pandemic-delayed Season 3 premiere, which aired on HBO and was simultaneously available to stream on HBO Max on October 17, amassed over 1.4 million viewers—that’s a high for Succession, as well as the best premiere numbers of any HBO series since HBO Max launched.

Of course, this season’s drama is just heating up. Will Shiv and Roman side with Kendall to dethrone their father? Will Greg have to go back to Congress? Will Kendall ever leave Rava’s apartment? There’s still much left to unfold in Season 3 before we can try to speculate about what Season 4 will bring. Though we can resist imagining.

"With each season of Succession, Jesse Armstrong has continued to surpass our wildest expectations, pulling us deeper into the Roy family’s inner sanctum with indelible wit, humanity, and precision," HBO’s executive vice president of programming Francesca Orsi said in a statement about the show’s renewal for Season 4. "This season is undoubtedly no exception, and we couldn’t be more excited for all that’s in store in this next season ahead."
