Welcome To The Party Pal meticulously dissects the first five episode of HBO’s smash hit comedy-drama Succession. Created by Jesse Armstrong, the series centers on the Roy family, the dysfunctional owners of Waystar RoyCo, a global media and entertainment conglomerate who are fighting for control of the company amid uncertainty about the health of the family’s patriarch, Logan Roy (Brian Cox). The series stars Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy, Kieran Culkin as Roman Roy, Sarah Snook as Siobhan Roy, Alan Ruck as Connor Roy, Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans, Siobhan’s husband and Waystar executive, and Nicholas Braun as Greg Hirsch, Logan’s grandnephew also employed by the company.
