The most hateful family on the small screen has said goodbye in a final season 4. Fortunately, 2 cult series available on Prime Video should fill the void left by Succession and the Roy siblings: This is Us et Six Feet Under.
Who could have predicted that millions of serial fans would fall under the spell of ruthless and capricious billionaires? Clearly, 5 years ago, the prospect of bonding with members of the Roy family seemed impossible. But here we are, however, orphaned by the setbacks of Logan, Connor, Kendall, Shiv and Roman, after 4 high-flying seasons.
So to find the rivalries, complicities and other betrayals that made all the salt of Successionyou can still take advantage of your Prime Video subscription to embark on new family sagas.
On this Saturday, June 3, 2023, you have the choice between two other completely dysfunctional siblings, which will greatly activate your lachrymal capacities and turn your heart with This is Us et Six Feet Under.
This is Us on Prime Video, the family we dream of having
We grant you: the Pearsons are totally the opposite of the contemptuous character of the Roys in Succession. But the 6 seasons of This is Us yet constitute an excellent remedy for the end of your favorite family saga. A way to drown your sorrows in a cute, benevolent setting, full of unexpected twists, and above all tearful. Get ready to take out your tissues to follow the daily life of Jack and Rebecca, a couple about to have children, Kate, a fat young woman struggling to build her life, Kevin, a famous actor who everything overnight and Randall, who just met his biological father.
So many characters with whom you will fall in love instantly, so much their moods and their quests for identity are written with a rare sensitivity. But This is Us does not content itself with presenting us with an ideal family, that we would dream of rubbing shoulders with in real life. Apart from a realistic and touching depiction of blood ties, its major asset lies above all in the details. The series thus deals with many essential subjects such as racism, fatphobia, abortion, mental health or social classes, with a subtlety that touches the heart. This is Us, it’s a bit of the healing you needed without knowing it, the dose of joy and tears that your life was missing, the adoptive family you dreamed of finding. And we’re not even exaggerating.

Six Feet Under on Prime Video, the deadliest family on the small screen
But long before This is Us, another family had already conquered our bruised little hearts: the Fishers. With Six Feet Underyou should regain the inclination of Succession for black humor and Shakespearean tragedies. For 5 seasons, this series has masterfully dealt with the themes of mourning, religion, homosexuality or adolescence through the Fisher family, therefore, who runs a funeral parlor. On paper, you are granted that Six Feet Under can be scary. But you’d be really wrong to miss out on one of HBO’s most unforgettable series, created by talented screenwriter Alan Ball (True Blood, American Beauty).
It’s very simple: this family drama is remarkable in all respects, from its realization to its reversals of situations, through the psychology of its characters. Even its final scene, an element so difficult to achieve for a series, shines with perfection. We can only recommend that you meet (or find) these undertakers, notably embodied by the young and already amazing Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Lauren Ambrose (Servant, Yellowjackets). It is not for nothing that fiction regularly ranks in the Pantheon of the best series ever made. And one thing is certain: you will never see life the same way again after seeing death in Six Feet Under.
