Succession star Sarah Snook has teased that fans can expect another season of the hit series.
As season three kicked off on Sky Atlantic, the Australian actress, 33, who appears in Succession as Siobhan Roy – the only daughter of Logan Roy (played by Brian Cox), threw her support behind the series continuing as she touched on its success.
Asked if she was surprised how well received Succession was by fans when it first hit TV screens in 2018, Sarah revealed: ‘It was totally baffling.’
She appeared on Sky News with her co-star Matthew MacFadyen, who plays her character’s onscreen husband Tom Wambsgans, and was asked by host Kay Burley if fans can expect another season of Succession when the third series’ nine-episode run wraps up.
Not giving anything away, Sarah assured Kay she was up for filming continuing, as she replied: ‘That would be lovely. I can’t wait to see what would happen with the rest of the characters.’
Suggesting there is room for more seasons of Succession, she added: ‘I don’t know if the story ever gets wrapped up.’
Pushed by Kay for a definitive answer, Sarah remained coy as she replied: ‘How does the story end? It can only really end when someone gets to the top and does anyone really get to the top in the Roy family?’

She was also asked about the success of the critically-acclaimed show, which has gone on to win a slew of awards including a Golden Globe and Emmy Award.
Asked if she was surprised by how well the series has done, Sarah said: ‘[It was] totally baffling. It’s such a surprise.’
Her co-star Matthew, meanwhile, added: ‘When we were shooting the pilot, shooting the first season, you have an idea as an actor, you know, that it feels good and that it feels interesting and fun and exciting, and you realise the writing is brilliant.
‘You never really know how it’s going to land in the culture, so it’s really wonderful, and gratifying and exciting.’
Succession follows the Logan family, who are known for controlling the biggest media and entertainment company in the world – Waystar RoyCo. Everything changes, however, when their father Logan steps down and leaves his four children fighting for control of the company.

Logan is dad to three sons; his eldest son Connor (played by Alan Ruck), Kendall (Jeremy Strong) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) as well as daughter Siobhan.
The third season of Succession premiered over in the US on Sunday night and is set to air in the UK on Monday on Sky Atlantic.
The season’s nine-episode run picks up from Kendall’s bombshell in the season two finale, exposing dad Logan as complicit in sexual abuse and other allegations.
Season three is set to see Kendall and Logan go head-to-head as the Roy family wages civil war on each other.
Teasing what’s to come in her latest TV interview, Sarah teased fans can expect things to ‘ramp up’.
She revealed the Roy family are in ‘full beast mode’ this time around, adding: ‘There’s] more conniving, more manipulations, more deciding where they stand.’
