Fans of Succession witnessed a dramatic finale of twists and turns this week.
Succession is one of the most critically acclaimed television shows of all time, with high praise gained for its writing, acting and directing. It has received numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and BAFTA awards throughout its run, which started in 2018.
The HBO series tells the story of media mogul Logan Roy and his children, who are all vying for company control if and when he decides to retire.
Following the final episode, star Brian Cox sent a message of thanks to his co-stars and the crew who worked on the show.
"We have now come to the end. And what has been, in my career, certainly the greatest work experience ever," he wrote on Instagram.
"The harmony between crew and cast was truly amazing. It was on its way to become a great series but the Love and commitment from crew to cast and writers, made it memorable.
"I would like to thank all of us in the making and creating of this show from the very bottom of my heart."
In what was the biggest shock of the entire series, Logan actually passed away in the third episode, leaving his children to pick up the pieces in their attempts to take over the business.
Cox happy Succession has ended
Cox previously stated his delight that the show was ending with season four as he didn't want it to outstay its welcome.
"There's an old adage. When the party's at its best, leave. And, that's what we've done," the screen legend said on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
"Jesse Armstrong, our great creator. He won't let something go by its sell-by date. Television isn't infinite. For him, its finite.
"Each season tops the last season, and there's only so much you can do, topping each season. He kind of hinted, to me, that the show was going to stop, come to an end, but he didn't decide until quite late on."
