Key Highlight

Brian Cox has hinted at a potential ‘Succession’ sequel where Logan Roy is not dead. In the hugely popular HBO series, the 76-year-old portrayed the role of a media tycoon and strict father Logan Roy whose children fought ferociously for the control of the business.

The third episode of the previous season cemented Logan's demise. Conor Roy was all prepared to marry his fiancée Willa Ferreyra. However, just before the ceremony started, the family got some terrible news. As Logan passed away in the bathroom of a private jet traveling to Sweden. In the final episode of the series, the siblings' rivalry temporarily faded as they worked together to scuttle the deal. Shiv's crucial vote, however, resulted in GoJo purchasing Waystar, making her husband Tom Wambsgans the new CEO and significantly shifting the power dynamics within the pair. 

Return of Logan Roy

Logan Roy's unexpected death in the first few episodes of the latest season threw doubt on the future of his media and entertainment empire, Waystar Royco. Additionally, this incident led to a change in the balance of power among his ambitious children. Brian went on to tell BBC that there could possibly be a follow-up series exploring what happened to the Roy siblings after their father's riches were lost.
