It’s hard to believe we’ll never have another new episode of Succession. The critically-acclaimed HBO series came to an end with an epic and devastating series finale on May 28. The incredible ensemble cast scored a home fun in the show’s final episode.

Now that Succession is over, fans are wondering: what is the cast doing next? From movies to TV shows to Broadway, the Succession cast isn’t going anywhere. In fact, they’re just getting started.

Jeremy Strong

Jeremy Strong is taking a bit of a break from the silver screen. The actor, who played our beloved #1 boy Kendall Roy, is returning to the stage. Ahead of Succession’s final episode, it was announced that the Emmy winner will be starring in 2024’s Broadway revival of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People. He’ll play the main character, Dr. Thomas Stockmann.

He previously appeared in the 2008 revival of A Man for All Seasons. His return to Broadway will be quite the New York City event.

Kieran Culkin

Kieran Culkin’s performance as the sarcastic but lovable Roman Roy in the final season was nothing short of brilliant. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too long to see Kieran’s next project. The actor is currently working on the Scott Pilgrim anime series for Netflix. He’ll reprise the role of Wallace Wells in the series. Kieran is also expected to star in the Jesse Eisenberg-directed feature A Real Pain.

Sarah Snook

Sarah Snook was a force to be reckoned with as Shiv Roy in Succession season 4, and we’re all waiting to see what this talented actress does next. She recently welcomed her first child, and she’ll be starring in the upcoming film The Beanie Bubble about those iconic Beanie Babies. Sarah stars alongside Zach Galifianakis and Elizabeth Banks in the Apple TV+ film out July 28.

Brian Cox

Brian Cox’s Logan Roy may have been killed off early in season 4, but his presence was felt all throughout the final season. Despite being 76 years old, Brian is busier than ever. He’s completed a number of projects, including films like The Electric State, Skelly, and The Parenting. The Electric State, also starring Chris Pratt and Millie Bobby Brown, is expected to be released by Netflix on April 26, 2024.

Brian is in production on Riff Raff with Jennifer Coolidge and Little Wing with Yellowstone’s Kelly Reilly. He’s also providing the voice of Helm Hammerhand in the upcoming animated film The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim which will be on April 12, 2024.

Matthew Macfadyen

Tom Wambsgans won the game of Succession in the end, and Matthew Macfadyen is going to continue his streak of good moves. He’s set to star alongside Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 3, and his role is currently unknown. The Pride & Prejudice alum has already wrapped the upcoming Nicole Kidman thriller Holland, Michigan.

Alan Ruck

Alan Ruck was such a delight as Logan Roy’s eldest son Connor Roy during Succession’s 4-season run. The Ferris Bueller alum has a number of movies in the works, including The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Crust. He’s currently in production on Wind River: Rising, the sequel to the 2017 film.

There is a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off sequel happening, but it doesn’t appear as if Alan will be involved. The sequel, Sam and Victor’s Day Off, will follow the valets who took Cameron’s dad’s Ferrari for a joyride that day.

Nicholas Braun

Nicholas Braun, a.k.a. Greg Hirsch, doesn’t have any current projects in the works. However, back in 2022, Variety reported that Nicholas was working on developing a music series at HBO with Chris Buongiorno. At the time, the half-hour series was titled One for the Road, but there haven’t been any updates since then.

J. Smith Cameron

There will never be another Gerri Kellman. J. Smith Cameron expertly portrayed Logan Roy’s whipsmart general counsel who helped forged a fan-favorite bond between Gerri and Kieran’s Roman Roy. J. Smith will next be seen in Max’s film adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel Turtles All The Way Down. She’s also providing the voice of Barb in the animated series In The Know.

Alexander Skarsgård

Alexander Skarsgård‘s reign at HBO continues. The True Blood and Big Little Lies alum shook things up in a big way as Lukas Matsson in Succession’s final season. The actor will be next seen in the upcoming film Eric Larue, which will be premiering on June 10, 2023. He’s also starring in an upcoming Elizabeth “Lee” Miller biopic with Kate Winslet, as well as The Pack and The Tiger.
