M-Net (DStv Channel 101) is revamping its weeknight 22h00 slot with the addition of HBO’s highly acclaimed and award-winning series Succession from Monday November 6, 2023.

All four seasons will be broadcast with a new episode releasing every weekday evening at 22h00.

Succession has taken the world by storm and has garnered an impressive 121 awards and 263 nominations including at the BAFTA’s, Primetime Emmy’s, Golden Globes and many more – solidifying its place as one of the most talked-about series in recent years.

The series follows the lives of the Roy family, a wealthy and powerful media dynasty, as they navigate the cutthroat world of business, family dynamics, and personal ambition. With its compelling plot twists and stellar ensemble cast, Succession has become a must-watch for television enthusiasts around the globe.

“There’s no question that Succession, at its root, is a family story,” notes director and executive producer Adam McKay. “There’s also a tragic side to it, where you see how massive wealth and power distorts and twists and wounds this family.” Executive producer Frank Rich adds, “I think it is the specificity of the way the Succession characters are drawn, with wry humour and heart, and the calibre of this ensemble cast, that make the Roy’s stand out in the crowded field of family drama.”

With the stripping of Succession Season 1 to 4 from Monday to Friday at 22h00, viewers will have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the addictive series. Whether you're a fan of intense family dramas or intricate power struggles, Succession is guaranteed to entertain.

“Our strategy to place award-winning evergreen series at  22h00 is driven by our commitment to provide viewers with the very best international content that stands the test of time. The 22h00 slot will become home to a curated selection of global hit shows, starting with Succession,” said Waldimar Pelser, Director for Premium Channels.

Tune in every weeknight at 22h00 on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) from Monday, November 6.

Succession will be available on DStv Premium on M-Net (Channel 101) from November 6, 2023, and will broadcast Mondays to Fridays at 22h00, as well as live-streamed on DStv Stream, and is also available on DStv Catch Up after broadcast.
