Following the completion of its run on HBO, Succession: The Complete Series is now available for fans to bring home on DVD.
My view on the series has evolved in the years since it first premiered in 2018. I did a rewatch in 2021 and let’s just say that my thoughts have really changed. At the time, I felt it was the dramatic version of Arrested Development. I no longer feel this way. It’s such a smart satire and even if both series have dysfunctional families to some extent, there’s no reason why they cannot co-exist and not be compared to one another. At some point, I’ll rewrite the review but I don’t know when that date will be.
All episodes from HBO’s award-winning original series are brought together for the first time in one set with the release of Succession: The Complete Series. Get ready to binge on all 39 episodes from the series’ four critically acclaimed seasons, along with all the previously released special features. The brilliant high-stakes drama following the Roy Family and their quest for power will be available to own on DVD on September 12, 2023. It is not available on Blu-ray at this time.
If you already own the previous three seasons on DVD, Succession: The Complete Fourth & Final Season will also be available to purchase on DVD on September 12. Season 4 episodes have averaged 9.4 million viewers across the various platforms.
Succession: The Fourth and Final Season and Succession: The Complete Series have been available to purchase through digital retailers for a few months.
Succession stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, J. Smith-Cameron, Peter Friedman, David Rasche, and Fisher Stevens.
The series was created by Jesse Armstrong; executive produced by Jesse Armstrong, Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod, Tony Roche, Scott Ferguson, Jon Brown, Lucy Prebble, Will Tracy, and Will Ferrell. Jesse Armstrong serves as showrunner.
The first three seasons of Succession have garnered 48 Emmy nominations and 13 wins, including Outstanding Drama Series, for the second and third seasons. Season three, which premiered October 2021, earned the SAG Award for drama ensemble, and swept at WGA, DGA, and PGA. The fourth season, which premiered earlier this year, picked up 27 nominations, including a record-breaking three nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series:
- Outstanding Drama Series
- 3 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Jeremy Strong)
- Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Sarah Snook)
- 3 for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Mark Mylod, Andrij Parekh, Lorene Scafaria)
- Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series (Jesse Armstrong)
- 4 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Alan Ruck, Alexander Skarsgård)
- Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (J. Smith-Cameron)
- 2 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series (James Cromwell, Arian Moayed)
- 3 for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (Hiam Abbass, Cherry Jones, Harriet Walter).
We won’t know the results until January as the Television Academy opted to delay the awards show because of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
Both titles are currently available on DVD. Succession: The Fourth and Final Season will be available to purchase at online retailers and Succession: The Complete Series will be available to purchase online and in-store at major retailers. Barring any discounts, it’ll cost $89.99 to bring home Succession: The Complete Series on DVD.
