Shiv’s husband, Tom Wambsgans.
With Tom as a surprising underdog and the Roy kids licking their wounds (again) where could Succession go in season 4? Here’s what we know.

What will Succession season 4 is about?
HBO shared an official synopsis for the next 10 episodes, which will follow the Roy family towards “existential anxiety and family division” as the GoJo deal approaches. (Nice. What else are we here for?)
