Some Spoilers of the Succession Final Season
An article on The Los Angeles Times states that in the third episode of the Succession final season, the Waystar Royco CEO collapsed in the bathroom of his luxury private jet. Efforts to resuscitate Roy were made but to no avail.
Apparently, Roy has suffered from a severe stroke right from the first season of the series. Cox stated that his character was supposed to die from there, but series creator Jesse Armstrong was hooked by the viewers’ reaction to Cox’s grumpy character that the plot changed course. Instead, Roy recovered which delayed the battle of succession.
