The Boys season 4 is fast approaching and showrunner Eric Kripke has just shared a big update ahead of its June 13 premiere. 

Taking to X, he said, "As of today, [The Boys season 4] is completely, totally, absolutely DONE. I'm really grateful & so proud of this cast [and] crew. Could be our best yet. Can't wait to unleash it onto the world. Coming June 13 on Prime Video."

That's a wrap on the Prime Video series then and, with any luck, we'll start seeing a lot more from this one in due course. The Boys is expected to really up the ante with its fourth season, especially now the unhinged Homelander is making his political aspirations known. 

Here's Kripke's post about concluding work on The Boys season 4:

Supernatural star Jensen Ackles played Soldier Boy in season 3 and Jeffrey Dean Morgan is set to show up as an old friend of Billy Butcher's in this next batch of episodes. Could Jared Padelecki eventually join them for a reunion with the former Supernatural showrunner?

"[My] response to [Erik] 90% of the time is, 'Dude, I'm 41 now with three kids. I'm not 25 and working out three hours a day. I know you're going to [frick]ing make me get naked, so give me a heads-up,'" he told Collider"I'm in, but let me get a nutritionist and a trainer and get in the hyperbaric chamber for eight months before you make me show up.'"

"But yeah, it would obviously be a lot of fun to see Kripke again and to work on that show, which is a great show that I'm a fan of."

In The Boys season 4, 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.

Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca's son and 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.

The series stars 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. Season Four will welcome Susan Heyward, Valorie Curry, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The Boys returns with a three-episode premiere on Prime Video on June 13.

You'd think they'd be The Men by now...

@IAmAHoot - yeah but it's cooler when you say, "I'm hangin' with my boys" than "I'm hanging with my men." :D

Just a matter of time before it becomes a full Supernatural reunion. Can you imagine all of them on screen at the same time in the same room involved in all "The Boys" chaos?

Glad to hear that S4 is officially in the can , looking forward to seeing it!!.

I would love to see Jared on the show whether it be a cameo or a main role since I liked him on Supernatural…

They would likely have to work around his schedule too since he’s the lead of his own network show “Walker” aswell but it could be done.

Hope it happens!!.

I just can't wait to see Homelander have his arrogant, narcissistic, sadistic, sociopathic, evil butt kicked eventually. I hope it's by Butcher, but a combined effort would be cool.
To see that SOB be humbled and humiliated would be so satisfying.

@HashTagSwagg - nah, it was a pretty even fight even with a 3 against one scenario. plus, homelander got away and then was glorified the last few minutes of last season.

@lazlodaytona - I doubt know about him being humbled but he was definitely humiliated.

Hoping they take the story in an interesting direction this season. I liked season 3 more than 2, but it is starting to get a bit stale as they aren’t moving the narrative as much as I’d like to see.

@mountainman - I have unfortunately need some leaks for the new season, it seems like the narrative does move forward!

Really looking forward to it if they are true but still annoyed I came across them

@Evansly - Oh man getting spoiled sucks. If I see something from The Boys or Invincible comics it’s one thing. The shows don’t follow exactly. But getting spoiled on stuff from a show is never fun.

Glad to hear that it moved forward. I liked season 3 more than season 2, but at the end of it i was disappointed with how little the status quo had shifted.

@mountainman - Definitely looking forward to it still. It'd be different if it was something from the comics but they have deviated, for the better in my opinion.

Still one of the more entertaining shows out, pretty bummed about Chance's passing as Gen V was better than I expected too
