Who stars in Succession?

The show's star is undoubtedly Brian Cox as the terrifying media mogul and manipulative patriarch Logan Roy, but as with previous seasons he'll be bolstered by a strong cast in the Roy family and WayStar Roy Co staff.

Jeremy Strong plays formerly favourite son Kendall, Kieran Culkin is loose cannon youngest son Roman, Sarah Snook plays ruthless daughter Shiv who led the coup against her father, and Alan Ruck is sidelined eldest son Connor.

Fan favourites Matthew Macfadyen, who plays Shiv's husband Tom, and his sidekick Cousin Greg, played by Nicholas Braun, are also back.

Other show stars include J. Smith-Cameron as trusted WayStar exec Gerri Kellman, Peter Friedman as her colleague Frank Vernon, and Justine Lupe as Connor's reluctant partner Willa.

Alexander Skarsgard returns to the cast as tech investor Lukas Matsson.

Fans of the show will remember horribly tense scenes at the end of season three when the Roy siblings finally joined forces and left their mother's wedding to try to stage a coup against their father, Logan.

However, Shiv's disgruntled husband Tom got in first to warn Logan, leaving the younger Roys seemingly cut out of the family company.

A new trailer for season four shows the siblings fighting back by trying to form alliances with some of WayStar's other shareholders, while Logan wields his authority over his employees and gives a rallying speech, ending in them chanting his name.

He also looks set to continue his divide-and-conquer approach to parenting, telling his children that they are "not serious people" while picking off youngest son Roman and telling him he needs him in tackling the threat from tech investor Lukas Matsson.

Other scenes show Roman threatening Lukas on a mountainside, and Connor's presidential campaign looking as disastrous as ever.

This has been confirmed as the final season of the acclaimed drama, so expect more fireworks than usual from the Roy family.

Succession returns on Monday, 27 March at 2am on Sky Atlantic.
