It’s the beginning of the end for “Succession,” and while many fans are devastated, at least some of the show’s cast is ready to say goodbye. Brian Cox, who stars as Roy family patriarch Logan, explained at the season four premiere on March 20 that he’s “more than ready” for the series to come to a close.

“I think we’ve, you know, got to the point where the show has reached its natural closure,” he told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet. He praised series creator Jesse Armstrong for deciding to end it now. “Jesse won’t let anything go on further than it needs to,” he explained. “A lot of shows outstay their welcome, and I think our show is perfect, and neat, in the way it is.”

Cox added that he’s “absolutely delighted” his show is ending, saying, “In a good way, I’m happy it’s over,” though he also said he’d miss the cast and crew. “I’ll miss the people I work with,” he added. “They’re the key.”

Cox’s comments are quite different from those of his costar Sarah Snook, who plays Shiv Roy — and Pregnant-first-child-49121807″ class=”ga-track” data-ga-category=”internal click” data-ga-label=”″ data-ga-action=”body text link”>announced her Pregnancy at the series premiere Monday night. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, published on March 19, Snook said that she didn’t realize the show was ending until the final table read, adding that she was “very upset.” “I felt a huge sense of loss, disappointment, and sadness,” she explained. “It would have been nice to know at the beginning of the season, but I also understand not being told until the end because there was still a potential that maybe this wasn’t going to be the end.”

She continued, “Emotionally, all of us weren’t necessarily ready to be done with the show because we love each other so much. [But] it’s smart not to let something become a parody of itself.”

Armstrong first revealed that the series would be ending with its fourth season in a Feb. 23 interview with The New Yorker. “You know, there’s a promise in the title of ‘Succession.’ I’ve never thought this could go on forever,” he said. “The end has always been kind of present in my mind. From season two, I’ve been trying to think: Is it the next one, or the one after that, or is it the one after that?”

Armstrong confessed that he tried to put off the decision to end the series for good as long as he could. It was still up in the air when the season four writers met and discussed the different paths the show could take from here. They could do two more short seasons, or turn the series into “a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show” that would go on for a long time but be more uneven. “Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference,” Armstrong shared, adding that the decision to end ultimately came as they wrote and filmed season four.

“I said to the cast, ‘I’m not a hundred percent sure, but I think this is it.'” Armstrong added that the story will be “complete” at the end. The creator also revealed some more juice about the final season, including that it opens with another birthday party for Logan.

Ahead of the new season, HBO released multiple trailers teasing what to expect from the latest Roy family drama. In the footage, the Roy children are at war with their father Logan following the explosive season three finale. In season four, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv, and Roman (Kieran Culkin) are plotting against Logan’s son-in-law, Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen), also Shiv’s husband, who in turn consults Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun). “This is a chessboard, and every move counts,” Tom tells Greg in the footage.
