Fans of the drama series Succession had a pleasant Tuesday morning as Matthew Macfadyen won the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Emmy at the 74th Annual Television Academy Awards.

At the 2022 awards, Macfadyen defeated Oh Young-soo (Squid Game), Kieran Culkin (Succession), Park Hae-soo (Squid Game), Billy Crudup (The Morning Show), Nicholas Braun (Succession), John Turturro (Severance), and Park Hae-soo (Squid Game).

The British actor was previously nominated in the same category in 2020 for his role as Tom Wambsgans, the husband of Shiv Roy (Sarah Snook), in the popular HBO series Succession.

Succession received 25 nominations, including the best drama series, and received a total of 14 acting Emmy nominations. The series received five Emmy nominations in its debut season and a staggering 18 nominations in its follow-up. HBO submitted 38 proposals for the series this season. When Succession last competed for an Emmy, in 2020, it won the best drama prize, along with eight other honours.

The fourth season of Succession is currently in production. The fourth season of the well-known television series, Succession, is almost finished with scripting.

Creator Jesse Armstrong presented the update at the Virgin Media BAFTA TV Awards in London in May 2022.

According to Armstrong, with the American authors visiting London, they are nearly finished with season 4. They're a really excellent bunch of people to discuss the show's work and the world's and characters' intricacies.

In this critically acclaimed, thought-provoking, and humorous series about a really dysfunctional dynasty, power, politics, and money are all in the family. Logan Roy, the CEO of one of the biggest media and entertainment empires in the world, is thinking about retiring, but each of his four adult children has distinct goals that don't always line up with those of their parents or siblings.

The fourth season of the show will see the media conglomerate Waystar Royco being sold to IT pioneer Lukas Matsson. As the Roys envision what their life would be like after the sale is completed, the possibility of this seismic sale causes existential turmoil and familial discord. A power struggle emerges as the family considers a future in which their influence in culture and politics will be significantly reduced.
