The Best Characters On HBO's 'Succession'

List Rules
Vote up all the characters you love to hate.

The best characters on HBO’s Succession are both ruthless and resourceful; they’re full of big dreams and aren’t afraid to break a few eggs in order to achieve them.

Succession follows the powerful Roy family as they plot to overthrow one another and take control of their father’s company. Logan Roy, played by Brian Cox, is cold and calculating, and his sons, Connor, Roman, Kendall (who has gone rogue as of late), are all vying to take his place as the head of the family. From Frank Vernon, COO of Waystar and Logan’s longtime friend to Tom Wamsgans, Shiv’s husband and slimeball extraordinaire, these are the best (and worst) characters on Succession.
