AMC has released a "mind-blowing" new featurette for the fourth season of The Boys in the form of a campaign video from vice presidential candidate Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit), who might just be the most dangerous and manipulative Supe of them all.

For a better shot at securing victory, Neuman will be joining forces with Homelander (Antony Starr), who gained a lot of support from a certain contingent of voters when he murdered a protestor is very brutal - and public - fashion in the season 3 finale.

The increasingly unstable leader of The Seven also gets the spotlight on a new promo poster, as he vows to "make America Super again." Homelander may not be the "wanker in chief" just yet, but watch this space!

The first three episodes of The Boys season 4 will be available to stream from June 13th, with new instalments dropping weekly through to the season finale on July 18.

Check out the new poster and featurette below.

Though the trailer (see below) did give us some idea of what to expect, specific season 4 plot details are still under wraps. We do know that the premiere will pick up almost immediately after the events of the Gen V finale.

Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) doesn't have long to live after overdosing on Temp V in the season 3 finale. Thankfully, he knows about a certain Supe virus that was created in Gen V's "Woods."

"For Butcher, by the time they were making the finale, we were pretty deep into breaking Season 4," said showrunner Eric Kripke in a recent interview with Variety. "We knew that we wanted that virus to be a pretty big part of Season 4, and we knew that we wanted Butcher to be aware of it. It seems crazy that he wouldn’t be aware of it. It became kind of tricky, because how do we show that he knows about it without it just being dialogue? This idea came up that it probably shouldn’t even happen in The Boys, it should happen in Gen V.”

"The value of having the [two shows’ writers] rooms be in coordination is, our room took it to Michele and her room and said, ‘Can we put Butcher in the end, so we can show that he’s really hot on the tail of the virus?’ It was really cool, because it does a nice little preamble to what’s coming next. And Karl and Ant both were willing to come in on their days off to go work on the other show. But the Homelander part was Michele’s team."

"The world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power," reads the official season 4 synopsis. "Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son as well as his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late."

Returning cast members include Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Cameron Crovetti, along with new recruits Susan Heyward, Valorie Curry, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

No exact premiere date has been announced, but The Boys will return at some point this year.

Aside from homie, deep, a train and dean winchester I really don't give a sh1t about the rest of this show's cast. Butcher's character was completely butchered in S2.

@harryba11zack - I do like Hughie and Annie being in the middle of a tug-of-war between these larger than life characters

@harryba11zack - I already liked Neumann, but after Gen V I'm really looking forward to where story is gonna go. More interested in Neumann vs Homie than in Butcher vs Homie right now

@Vigor - I'm guessing they're just gonna ride the whole presidential elections wave, and I suppose Super Tuesday is gonna be a good moment as any

@bkmeijer1 - Someone told me recently, after I posted I'm not a fan of politics shoved into entertainment (one reason being that it's always slanted one way because it's hollywood and most of it rips against the other; basically, a major bias) that this show equally makes fun of both parties. I'm an independent, not that it matters, but I'm pretty ok with that. Most of what I've seen in promotions for this show since day 1 is people doing the very same thing I said I hate and it's all one-sided.

SO, to the user on here who to;d me that, I gotta disagree.

@lazlodaytona - I feel this show mostly makes fun of the the more extremities in politics and society, and that is often one-sided indeed.

I really couldn't give two shits about politics or how entertainment tackles it. If it entertains me, I'm happy.

That tagline…

If people thought they weren’t being subtle before then this season seems to taking that to another level lol.

Also Neuman can pop me anytime , she is FINNNEE!!.



Anyway , excited to check this out (need to see Gen V first still).

@TheVisionary25 - Gen V did push Neumann's story forward, so I do suggest watching it first (also because it's just a fun show)

Everytime I think they're done telling a certain element of the fan base "WE'RE MAKING FUN OF YOU" they come out with Homelander full on using "MASA" as a tagline.

Chef kiss. I love it. Stop the co-opting before it gets out of hand, save your art before it's taken by these people

bkmeijer1 - 3/5/2024, 5:52 PM
@SATW42 - same. Also liked how Gen V found a whole new group and social conventions to mock as well, just when I thought it was just a spin-off (the kind of thing The Boys mocks ironically)

Everything about this show is eerything hope for in a live action comic book adaptation.

And as I mention before this show actually SURPASSES the comic book on every level. Not that that a really hard feet since the comic is garbage.

@Nomis929 - I never read the comic and based on popular opinion, I’ve heard the show is a vast improvement from the source material. I absolutely love the show. Unadulterated, abhorrent, unapologetic and intensely gratifying. Comic book entertainment at its finest. For me, I prefer dark material, adult content, violence, dramatic storytelling so this is right up my alley. Season three was my favourite season thus far can’t wait for season four and all the surprises that lay in store!

@TheMetaMan - If you love the show, please stay away from the comic.

the premise is there... but the execution is such an insult to the reader.

@Nomis929 - Yeah, I a few issues... it looked really, really juvenile. It felt extremely indulgent in the things it was parodying.

The first season was great but this show took a nose-dive quickly. The universe, story and characters just aren't that interesting anymore. It's like they just keep dragging their feet with the plot and turned this into a melodramatic teen soap-opera where nothing really exciting or fresh happens anymore. The 1st season had interesting stuff going on with trying to stop Homelander and the rest but now it's pretty boring and that weak spin-off show made me lose interest in the world moving forward.
