It’s rare for a popular TV show to end in its prime and let it go on its own terms. Yet, that’s exactly what HBO’s


did, bowing out after four seasons and two Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series (so far). But many, from the cast to series creator Jesse Armstrong, weren’t so sure Succession would end when it did.As Kieran Culkin – who played fashion icon Roman Roy on Succession

– put it, “Jesse Armstrong, our showrunner-writer, didn’t know. He told me that he thought this was the end of the season, but that he didn’t know. This year, I asked him questions and he explained the entire season. When he reached the end, I told him, “Well, that does seem like the end of the series, doesn’t? Although …’ And then he just started talking about all these different ideas off the top of his head.”Such a tease from Jesse Armstrong feels like just the sort of mind game that a Succession

character would play. Culkin said, “And he was just like, ‘This off the top my head.'” And then he pitched an amazing fifth and then another season… Then denied. He kept us guessing throughout the entire time. Some of us were sure there wouldn’t be another season,” even though he said Sarah Snook (Shiv), was confident that there would be a five-season, since Armstrong had very clear ideas about what it would be. He told us that after the table read of the final episode…He felt the story was completed, and creatively, that was all? He’s like, ‘I feel like it’s complete.’ I feel like he’s satisfied as a writer.”While some fans may not be entirely satisfied with how Succession

ended based on who they wanted to “win” in the end – and even one of its key stars disagrees with how his character was handled – certainly most would respect Jesse Armstrong’s decision to stop it where it was. As it stands, “With Open Eyes” has a 9.6 rating on IMDb, behind only that season’s “Connor’s Wedding” and the finales for season two and three.Do you think there should have been a fifth season of Succession
