What do we know about the final episode?
Succession’s finale is titled With Open Eyes (via GQ) which, like every other season finale of the series, is taken from the poem Dream Song 29 by John Berryman, published in 1964.
According to Entertainment Weekly, it will be a feature-length episode at “around 90 minutes”.
Speaking to the outlet, Strong, who plays Kendall Roy, compared shooting the finale to skiing down a double black diamond slope.
“Certainly, there’s an awareness on the periphery that this is it, but in a way there’s no room for that,” Strong said. “You can’t both be saying goodbye to a television show and be doing what you need to do at the same time — or I can’t.
“I will say that the final episode, the culmination of everything, where Jesse really brings everything to its crisis, was like a double black diamond to go down. That’s what you want as an actor, and so that was incredibly fulfilling.”
