Succession fans are dreading the series coming to an end, and it seems star Nicholas Braun is too.

The actor has admitted he was "sad as hell" on his last day of filming.  

He told Entertainment Tonight about finding out the show is coming to an end: "That was kind of a big one".

"We were expecting it while we were making the show, but you don’t believe it till Jesse says it," he added, talking about show creator Jesse Armstrong. 

"We’re all pretty bummed. I was sad as hell my last day," he confessed.

Armstrong confirmed last month that the upcoming 10 episodes will be the last, and they will begin airing on March 26th.

Braun continued: "I finished a couple weeks ago, and it was really a tough day, you know, saying goodbye to everybody.

"It’s been the greatest working experience of my life. So saying goodbye to those people was really tough."

The cast didn't know how their story would end, until the final table read.

"We had an idea. None of us read the script before it came to us — a table read draft came to us — so we didn’t exactly know how it was gonna end. Anyway, the ending is fire."

Of his character Cousin Greg, he teased: "He gets battered around again this season. Some fun stuff."

Armstrong told The New Yorker: "I’ve never thought this could go on forever. The end has always been kind of present in my mind."

The series started in 2018 and was a smash hit.

Fans have been sharing their theories online of how they think it will all end for the family.
