Prime Video debuted the first trailer for The Boys season 4 over the weekend, giving fans a glimpse of some typically bonkers-looking footage from the next batch of episodes.

The Dynamite Comics adaptation has always pushed the envelope when it comes to the outrageous things it's been able to depict on-screen - from exploding heads to octopus-f*cking, you name it, it's probably happened in this show - and it sounds like season 4 might feature the series' most extreme moment yet.

Showrunner Eric Kripke shared the following Tweet in response to the trailer's release.

In addition, Prime Video's recap reveals/confirms some intriguing details about several main characters.

While speaking at LA Comic-Con, Erin Moriarty (Starlight) said the following about the teaser.

"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 next year.

Homelander is Eric Cartman if he was a superhero.
Origame - 12/5/2023, 8:54 AM
@CoHost - I can see him having a nightmare about Kathleen Kennedy replacing him with a black lesbian 🤣
Forthas - 12/5/2023, 8:43 AM
When is the film coming out? We know that is coming next.
Blergh - 12/5/2023, 10:12 AM
@Forthas - what would be interesting is a comic accurate animated series.
The show is great but it'd be really awesome to see another adaption of the comic books (which are not that good in the first place but would be fun to see nevertheless)

They always say this shit.
GhostDog - 12/5/2023, 8:44 AM
He says this every season, this ain’t news anymore
MosquitoFarmer - 12/5/2023, 8:53 AM
Yeah yeah sure. I remember all the baiting over the Herogasm episode, and in the end it wasn't that bad. Not biting.
Urubrodi - 12/5/2023, 8:54 AM
He says this every season.
JobinJ - 12/5/2023, 8:58 AM
I love this show, but at some point the gore is a turnoff. Gen V was just gross and overboard with the gore.
lazlodaytona - 12/5/2023, 12:18 PM
@JobinJ - I liked Gen V but I agree with you on the gore. Overkill.
Izaizaiza - 12/5/2023, 9:02 AM
I enjoyed the first two seasons, but for some reason when season 3 rolled around I was just like "Nah. I'm good" 🤷🏻‍♂️🤔
mountainman - 12/5/2023, 9:12 AM
Worse than the little guy and the cocaine scene? Gosh I wish I could mind wipe myself and forgot I ever saw that.
MotherGooseUPus - 12/5/2023, 9:19 AM
@mountainman - hahahahaha same here. i want to get my fiancé to watch the show with me but i described that scene and she said "are you f*cking kidding me" to which i said it was the craziest worst thing ive ever seen, but if you can deal with that, youll like the show.... lets just say im on my own lol
mountainman - 12/5/2023, 9:32 AM
@MotherGooseUPus - My wife quite literally stopped watching the show after S3E1. She finished the episode at least, but at the end she said “I’m out”.

Funny enough, I just started Gen V and the first scene of that show might have disturbed me more.
MotherGooseUPus - 12/5/2023, 9:37 AM
@mountainman - lol. im on Ep4 of GenV. I like it, but im not hooked like i was right away with The Boys.

Personally i didnt think it was as bad as the cocaine scene... that stuff is nightmare fuel
MG0019 - 12/5/2023, 9:17 AM
Marketing marketing marketing. What worked last season must work again, so says the algorithm! I can’t help but feel they’re trying to replicate the “cultural moment” of last season’s Herogasm hype.

I do like the show, looking forward to new episodes.

Knowing them its probably something involving a penis because thats what they are heavyly in showing.
bkmeijer1 - 12/5/2023, 9:48 AM
Well, we'll have ti wait and see though if he gets away with it. The season hasn't premiered yet after all
Blergh - 12/5/2023, 10:13 AM
I still don't get what was so bad about Herogasm, the worst thing in season 3 (to me) were the implications of what Deep did with his octopus.

You can show all the violence, blood and sex you want. Our heads are always going to come up with the most disturbing sh*t
lazlodaytona - 12/5/2023, 12:20 PM
@Blergh - I don't even care about the "group gasm scene." We got to see a Superpowered Butcher kick some Homelander but.
DocSpock - 12/5/2023, 10:27 AM

Yeah, big deal.

Who among us hasn't had an octopus blow job by now?

lazlodaytona - 12/5/2023, 12:21 PM
@DocSpock -
thedrudo - 12/5/2023, 11:11 AM
We hear this every season. With that said - I can’t wait for season four.
lazlodaytona - 12/5/2023, 12:26 PM
Homelander is the perfect example of a Superhero the government and people should fear. Unfortunately, Snyder had a similar mentality about Superman in MoS and BvS. He completely screwed up the "idea" of Kal-El/Clark Kent. Zach obviously didn't go to the extreme as the character Homelander, but it was a similar take.

So disappointing. Gunn, please give us a character of hope and caring.

Tv series have blood guts gore nudity there surprised they got away with one crazy scene how crazy can it be?
SonOfAGif - 12/5/2023, 12:56 PM
Anyone else find it weird how a streaming service can get away with obscene amounts of blood and gore and extreme graphic violence but a movie must instantly be rated NC-17 because of a scene that was deemed "too much"? For example the Saw franchise. Mostly all traps had to be heavily edited to secure an R-Rating, yet Terrifier 2 has an excessive gorey bedroom scene that was so over the top it was allowed to be shown in theaters. But the Boys can show a micro character crawl into the hole of a man's private and grow and cause his lower abdomen to explode and secure a TV-MA rating. It's so strange to me.
Nightmare - 12/5/2023, 4:00 PM
Always says this to sell the show. I mean Herogasm was so mild and they hyped it up like it was an underground film.

They say this every season,nothing new.
