The Boys returns for its fourth season with a 3-episode premiere tomorrow, and critics have been sharing their reviews online since the embargo lifted yesterday afternoon.

The first wave of reviews were mixed-positive, but with 43 verdicts in total now added to Rotten Tomatoes, season 4 of the Prime Video series has been officially "certified fresh" with a score of 84%.

"Boxing in the political arena with a bloodied smile, The Boys' fourth season is grim and even a little glum while holding up a cracked mirror towards modern society," reads the Critics Consensus.

A very respectable score, but it's still a series-low for the acclaimed comic book adaptation. Season 1 sits at 85%, 2 at 97% and 3 at 98%.

Have a read through some of the reviews and reactions at the links below.

"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.

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.

What's the point in comparing seasons 1-3 overall score with season 4's score that's only based on the first couple of episode?

If you have gotten an 84% out of 43 reviews so far and that is your lowest “score” then maybe you might have made a good show…

Some other showrunners or creatives would kill for that lol.

Anyway , looking forward to the season and how it sets up the final chapter in the story of The Boys…

Been a big fan thus far so hope they end it well!!.

@dagenspear - Dumpy broads make better TV. It's been scientifically proven.

84% is a good score, far from being objectively a "bad one".

I didn’t think season 3 was as good as others, though still good, but I thought 2 was pretty good while I saw others around here didn’t

Season 3 had a horrible finale. Its almost made the rest of the season feel like a waste.

Normally the stuff in the 80-85 feels better reviewed but Rogan's other CB show Preacher got worse as it went on.

I’ve loved all the seasons and I’m sure this will be no different. As long as they mostly land it - I’ll be happy.
