Quiz: How much do you know about HBO’s Succession?

Succession’s final episode airs in the early hours of Monday morning.

HBO’S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED Succession is coming to an end.

The series follows the Roy family, a media dynasty not too dissimilar to the likes of the Murdochs or Maxwells.

The critically acclaimed Succession is created by Peep Show’s Jesse Armstrong, with Hollywood heavyweights like Adam McKay and Will Ferrell executive producing (Connor’s wife is named Willa Ferreyra, an apparent nod to Will Ferrell).

Ahead of the show’s finale in the early hours of Monday morning, we want to test your knowledge on the Roy clan.


Logan Roy, the patriarch of the family who is played by Brian Cox, celebrates his 80th birthday in the show’s first episode. Logan Roy was 80, but how old was Cox at the time this episode aired back in June of 2018?
