Succession is coming to an end with its just-premiered fourth season, and Alan Ruck says now is the right time for it to conclude. The fourth season premiered on Sunday night, and ahead of that Ruck spoke with Empire Magazine where he said that adding another season would have been too much.

“The truth is, we’ve all known on the show since June,” Ruck told the outlet. “And I think it’s the right time to end it in terms of the struggle to see who’s going to take command of this empire. A fifth season would have been drawn out, and if it just faded away, that would have been a disgrace.”

The series has been a critical and awards hit for HBO with two Emmys for Best Drama and several other nominations and wins. It stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Ruck, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Nicholas Braun, Hiam Abbass, Peter Friedman, Matthew Macfadyen, Rob Yang, Dagmara Dominczyk, Arian Moayed, J. Smith-Cameron, Justine Lupe, David Rasche, and Fisher Stevens.
