HBO Max’s Succession hit its best viewership rating across all four seasons with 2.9million tuning in for the season four finale

More than one million more viewers switched on the season four finale than they did for the end of season three, according to the network – a viewership high for the drama series. 

It also broke its highest episode viewership. Prior to Sunday’s finale, Episode 6 of Season 4 – which aired at the end of April – held the most viewers at 2.75million. 

On average, the massively successful show pulled in 8.7million viewers per episode, including delayed viewing. 

Season four was the most watched of the series as a whole, bringing in 1.5million more viewers per episode than season three on average.

The series debuted in 2018 with low expectations, but eventually transformed into an award-winning hit, pulling out 13 Emmys, including twice for best drama and three times for best writing. Actors Jeremy Strong, who played Kendall Roy, and Matthew Macfadyen, who played Tom Wambsgans, also won awards for their work in the series. 

It is also a favorite contender for this year’s Emmy’s, as fans are hoping to see it win best drama again. 

However, the show is not HBO Max’s most popular show by any means. Euphoria and The White Lotus both pulled in millions of more viewers per episode – 19.5million and 15.5million, respectively, with delayed viewing included. And other popular shows, such as House of Dragon and The Last of Us received around 30million views per episode, with delayed viewing included, the network said. 

After the finale aired, the stars of the show have been partying up a storm and sharing behind-the-scenes moments on social media.

J. Smith Cameron, 65, and Kieran Culkin, 40, who famously had a rather bizarre sexual attraction in the show as Gerri and Roman Roy could be seen having a moment by the bar in one Instagram snap she posted.

Coming up close to his face with a pen in hand, as if applying make-up, J. Smith captioned the image with broken love heart emojis.

The comments section went wild, with fans referencing some of Roman’s kinky lines towards his older counterpart from the series, including: ‘I’m actually j***ing off.’

Moreover, another fan wrote; ‘Please tell me you met up with him at the bar and he ordered you a martini’ in reference to her favorite tipple.

Just hours after the explosive series finale aired, one of the show’s crew members shared that Jeremy Strong celebrated by getting his head shaved by his on-screen siblings.

Strong, 44, was seen in a video shared on social media, getting his head shaved by co-star Kieran.

Kieran tells Strong to turn around and look in the mirror, as he sees the top of his head cleanly shaved as he laughs.

He tells their co-star Sarah Snook, 35, who plays Shiv Roy, to, ‘get in there,’ and passes the clippers to her as she starts shaving the sides and the back of his head.

The clippers are then passed around to several other crew members, as one man named Joe asks: ‘Can I get in there?’

Strong replies, ‘Yeah get in there! Anybody can get a crack,’ as Joe passes the clipper to Strong, who passes it to a female crew member.

Strong then asks Culkin, ‘Can I shave your head?’ but he emphatically responds, ‘No!’ as the room breaks into laughter.

Snook is seen shaving the right side of Strong’s head when Culkin pulls out an egg and smashes it on Strong’s nearly-bald head, which Snook was not expecting.

Strong takes the clippers from a stunned Snook as Culkin wipes some of the egg on her face before they both hug, before someone smashes an egg on Culkin’s head.
