Succession: Roman and Mencken

Despite only having a few scenes together in one episode, fans of the hit HBO series Succession noticed the captivating dynamic between Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) and presidential candidate Jeryd Mencken (Justin Kirk). With the fourth and final season premiering soon we thought of how this could play out as many fans have speculated. To celebrate the release, we decided to create a poster for the season featuring Roman and Mencken.

The ten-episode season debuts SUNDAY, MARCH 26 (9:00-10:00 P.M. ET/PT) on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max. The series, created by Jesse Armstrong, explores themes of power and family dynamics through the eyes of patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his four grown children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin), and Connor (Alan Ruck).

The sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) moves ever closer. The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is complete. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed. On top of this, Mencken seems to be a key player in this season as the ATN backed presidential candidate. Given how prominent Mencken featured in the trailer, it is intriguing where this plot goes.

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.
