You can watch Succession season 4's premiere online right now (we are). And for those who aren't ready? Logan Roy's got a two-word salute for you. But no matter if you watch on HBO or HBO Max, you'll be able to stream it at the exact same time.

Succession season 4 premiere date, time

U.S. date and time: Succession season 4 episode 1 began today (Sunday, March 26th) at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on HBO, and it's live on HBO Max right now.
U.K. release date: Monday (March 27th) at 2 a.m. GMT on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
AU release date: Monday (March 27th) at 1 p.m. AEDT on Binge and Foxtel Now.

Its arrival, though, is bittersweet: this is the first of the last 10 episodes of the best HBO Max show currently on the air. 

As the below trailer has already revealed, the sibling alliance of Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) will find three eager allies against Logan (Brian Cox). Those are Sandi Furness (Hope Davis), Stewy Hosseini (Arian Moayed) and Nan Pierce (Cherry Jones), all finally ready to end the patriarch's reign.

That said, Logan already has a plan to destroy this dangerous alliance. Seemingly done with Tom, Logan's asked Roman to aide him in the deal with Lukas Mattson (Alexander Skarsgård). As for the other familial topics, Connor's still ambitious about public office, but nobody knows why, while Tom and Shiv are in dire straits.

As for the premiere episode itself, our Succession season 4 premiere recap is live, so you can read all about its events after you watch. HBO didn't give us a whole lot of detail about the show, but it's announced that Succession season 4 episode 1 is titled "The Munsters." The official episode description reads as follows:

As Kendall, Shiv, and Roman hone their pitch for potential investors in LA, a call from Tom shifts the siblings’ focus towards one of their dad’s long-coveted companies. Back in NY, Greg’s uninvited plus-one raises questions at Logan’s birthday party, Connor considers throwing a gargantuan sum at his campaign, and Tom seeks assurances from Logan.

Here's the trailer for the new season:
