Another new season of HBO's award-winning mega-hit, Succession isn't too far off as the show just dropped this past Sunday. While we couldn't have asked for much more than what has already been delivered by the cast and crew, we think that something needs to change in order to keep the momentum rolling. In the first three seasons, we saw a series of attempts to stage coups and remove the surly and irascible patriarch, Logan Roy (Brian Cox), from the top spot at Waystar Royco.
