Brian Cox says he's not keen on watching 'Succession' series finale

Brian Cox says he's not keen on watching 'Succession' series

While viewers are still reeling from the dangerous final episode of Succession, show star Brian Cox says he still hasn't seen it. Cox, who played media mogul Logan Roy, said Sunday during an appearance on the BBC's "Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg":

I haven't seen the end of the show.

When Cox was asked why he didn't tune in, the answer was simple. "I'm dead," he said with a laugh, adding that "dead people don't watch things like that." As the patriarch of the Roy family and head of the billion-dollar media company Waystar Royco, Logan died suddenly in a shocking twist at the start of the fourth and final season.

The rest of the season followed Logan's three grown children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) as they engaged in a family and corporate battle to take over his media empire. Cox admitted that he wasn't keen on watching the rest of the season after Logan's death in the third episode.

I don't cling to things. When I'm done, it's over and I move on. I have no interest in watching my death, it will come soon enough.

Despite not seeing the ending, Cox stressed on Sunday that he doesn't need to watch the finale to know how it ends because “I knew Logan had already decided it and so I knew that in the end, in the end, Logan won. even though he is in the grave". The "Succession" finale aired May 28 after first premiering on HBO in 2018. The show has won 13 Emmys, with Cox earning two lead actor nominations in 2020 and 2022.
