The film will land on Netflix on June 28, two months after the Succession finale airs. Sarah played Shiv Roy on the HBO show for four seasons and she admitted that she was surprised to learn that the final installment would be the show’s last.
Speaking to the LA Times, she explained: “I was very upset. I felt a great sense of loss, disappointment and sadness. It would have been nice to know at the beginning of the season, but I also understand that they didn’t tell me until the end because there was still a chance that maybe this wasn’t the end.”
She added, “Emotionally, all of us weren’t necessarily ready to end the show because we love each other so much. But everything has to come to an end, and it’s smart not to let something become a parody of itself.”

His co-star and on-screen dad, Brian Cox, had a very different perspective and opened up about the show’s ending on This Morning, telling Allison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary: “Some TV shows live way beyond their Date of Expiry. but this will not happen to our television program. And that’s because of the integrity of [showrunner] Jesse Armstrong. I think it was difficult for him to bring it to an end.
“A lot of people… I mean Sarah Snook, she didn’t even know she was finishing until the last full read. I mean, she’s being so stupid not realizing that she was actually going to break up.”
He continued to joke, “Apparently everyone has been crying. All that nonsense, you know… I really don’t get it, you know? […] I mean, I’ll hug, but I won’t cry about it, I have a lot of work on what I’m doing. I’m very busy.”
