Every Sunday for the last 10 weeks, viewers tuned in to watch the Roy family, a wealthy family of media tycoons, duke it out on HBO’s Emmy Award-winning series Succession.
The show, which stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, and Alan Ruck, drew almost 2.3 million viewers for its season four premiere, according to Variety, proving that people can’t get enough of the ultra-dysfunctional Roy family.
After four expletive-laden seasons of twists and turns, the roller coaster ride finally came to a juddering stop on May 28, and the finale had fans reeling.
Viewers turned to Twitter to express their thoughts on the show’s ending — you know, as one does to process these complicated emotions.

the succession finale destroyed me, which is the highest compliment of which i am capable, and a testament to the sheer force of the story. the sun is setting on television as event, experienced communally at one time, and i can’t think of a better show to guide us home

The music is an ode to the king, who could sit on the throne only for a few hours—an excellent way to say goodbye to the king’s subjects.#SuccessionHBO #Succession #SuccessionFinalepic.twitter.com/kn6jQwMOZ9
