Though an exact premiere date has yet to be set, Prime Video has announced that The Boys will return for its fourth season next year, and we also have a first look via a pair of promo posters spotlighting the show's ever-opposing forces for bad and... slightly less bad!

It's already been confirmed that season 4 will pick up almost immediately after the events of the Gen V finale, and it looks like Homelander (Antony Starr) backed the right horse in vice presidential candidate Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) and her running-mate, presidential candidate Robert Singer (Jim Beaver).

In stark contrast, we also see a dejected-looking Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), who has clearly suffered a major setback. 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."

Check out the promo art at the link below.

Specific season 4 plot details are still under wraps, but we do know that new recruits will include Susan Heyward as Sister Sage, and Valorie Curry as Firecracker. Cameron Crovertti (Ryan) has also been upped to series regular, which is hardly surprising after the sinister final shot of season 3.

Kripke recently confirmed that The Boys will not finish up after four seasons.

Sweet , looking forward to seeing it when it comes out!!.



Before that , I gotta watch Gen V since I hear it’s essential to the main show…

I’m behind on my movie & tv watching so gotta get back on that.

@TheVisionary25 - Wasn't big on the first episode, and went in with lower expectations so that may have skewed my view, but once Gen V got going I ended up really liking it. Solid show, keeps you hooked in. And only 6 episodes was just enough to leave you satisfied with the story but still wanting more.

@TheVisionary25 - Gen V was decent. Binged it last week. The character Emma was my favourite. Started off kind of annoying but had a pretty good arc.

Also...i don't remember much of Boys Season 4, but did we already know Butcher knew about the virus?
Usernametaken - 11/8/2023, 12:44 PM
Good, I need season 4 to wash away the bad after taste of Gen V.
TheLobster - 11/8/2023, 2:50 PM
@Usernametaken - what are you talking about? Gen V wasn’t superior to The Boys, sure, but it still fit nicely into the universe and was pretty good for the most part. It also looks like the virus storyline will be a part of Season 4 too so it’s integral to the overall story.
Usernametaken - 11/8/2023, 3:19 PM
@TheLobster - I didn't care for the characters or the story.

I thought the idea of having a supe college was a good idea, but past the first episode it doesn't matter that we are in a college, you don't see what the classes are, you don't see teachers. I mean this could have been The Boys version of Hogwarts. That would have been a blast to see.

The entire series is all about that damn basement, but most of the series is about "the mistery evil stuff happening there". It's also hard to care about the supes being sequestred there as we never get to actually know them.

What else... Well the heroes were interesting at first but they quickly became boring as everything they were doing was either sleeping with each others or try to stop the evil basement.

Overall it's a 6/10 for me, The Boys is a 9.

What make The Boys great are the characters and especially Butcher, Frenchie, Homelander, Soldier Boy, I didn't see anyone close to that in gen V. I'll skip season 2.

YESSSSS Best live action superhero show going and its not close. With all that said... guess i need to watch GenV now so i'm not lost in S4. Wish i knew that sooner.

TheLobster - 11/8/2023, 2:50 PM
@MotherGooseUPus - completely agree. Every season has been phenomenal with Season 3 being the best. I can’t wait for S4!

@TheOtherOn - Oh, the irony.
ModHaterSLADE - 11/8/2023, 12:48 PM
Gen V was a nice appetizer before the main course that is The Boys. Can't wait.
BeNice123 - 11/8/2023, 12:54 PM
Love this show.
Origame - 11/8/2023, 1:01 PM
Homelander for president! About time we have a great American hero in office to make America great again.
OleBobbyTiger - 11/8/2023, 1:32 PM
@Origame - Didn't peg you for a MAGA supporter, being you went to Harvard and all.

Gen V's finale was wild. Pretty excited how it ties into Season 4 now.
AnthonyVonGeek - 11/8/2023, 1:15 PM
Off topic. This looks enjoyable.

@AnthonyVonGeek - loved the last film so fingers crossed this is just as good!
Scarilian - 11/8/2023, 4:46 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek -
The frozen visuals help. Interesting direction to go with a more supernatural villain, though it's clear it's still humanoid as per the scene of it slotting tubes onto its head.

Might be worth a watch, perhaps they are taking inspiration from the 'Hell freezes over'

Well [frick] I wanted a date.lol

hallelujah

How many seasons they plan make for this series ? For books five to eight tpb for series going be a lot of seasons if they plan do whole series
Blergh - 11/8/2023, 3:16 PM
Man, I can't believe we'll go into another election soon and this becomes even more poignant.
CharlesLeeRay - 11/8/2023, 3:23 PM
Season 3 was great until they nerfed Homelander.

-Maivie can put an equal fight against him;
-You can hurt him by sticking pointy objects on his body orifices;
-it just take 3 guys with super human strenght to hold him down.

Season 3 was great, but it vanished the umbeatable god like menace they established since season 1.
TheLobster - 11/8/2023, 3:37 PM
@CharlesLeeRay - don’t think they nerfed him at all. The dude is visibly shook after the events of Season 2 which is distracting him and making him more vulnerable.

He was never going to remain an unbeatable god because how else would the show continue past a first season man? Lol
CharlesLeeRay - 11/8/2023, 4:12 PM
@TheLobster - He is still the best character, in my opiniln. I just think they messed up a bit with that issue.
BlackSpider - 11/8/2023, 6:02 PM
@CharlesLeeRay - He isnt actually that strong in the comics. The army takes him out.
Forthas - 11/8/2023, 6:20 PM
Homelander deserves an Emmy! He is the scariest mofo on TV!
NinnesMBC - 11/9/2023, 12:41 AM
Good thing I weekly watched Gen-V and I don't have to be updated on anything.

The official account of the show shared some details last night.

-Timeline wise, it takes place about a month after the events of the Gen-V finale.

-Butcher knows about the virus. Do with that lil piece of intel what ya will.

-Homelander will stand trial for lasering a Starlighter’s head off. Vought even made a hashtag for the occasion. #HomeFree

-The events of Season 4 will lead into Gen V Season 2.

-Do you need to watch both shows to understand one or the other? No. Should you? Abso-[frick]in-lutely.

I am mostly curious how Butcher's health since he abused of Compound V and if his team knows.
