The eagerly awaited fourth season of The Boys starts streaming this Thursday, and ahead of its launch, we were able to catch up with stars Colby Minifie (“Ashley Barrett”), Susan Heyword (“Sister Sage”), and Valorie Curry (“Firecracker”) to talk about a little of what to expect from the revamped Seven.

Colby tells us more about Ashley's role at Vought following the events of last season and her dynamic with Homelander (Antony Starr) now that he's added some new firepower to The Seven. Meanwhile, Susan and Valorie tease what to expect from Sister Sage and Firecracker and what they hope to establish opposite Homelander and how that could ultimately mess up everything Ashley has worked toward.

ROHAN: Colby, self-preservation seems to be at the top priority for Ashley, and that leads her to make some bold decisions all season. What drives her to stay at Vought? 

COLBY: I think there are many reasons to stay at Vought, but one of them is that if she were to leave, she knows too much, she'd probably die. Homelander would probably find her immediately and kill her in a horrible way. I also think the reason why she stayed for so long is because it's shiny to her, she's in a position of power. She's really good at her job. She's a CEO of a huge corporation. While it's stressful, there's not really another job like it. So, I think, initially, she was really excited about that and, of course, as the spiral of what she's been exposed to has gotten deeper and darker, so has the pressure to stay, because the more likely it is she'll get killed.

ROHAN: Susan & Valorie, as the new members of the Seven, both Sister Sage and Firecracker, what would you say is driving them both through the season? What drives their alliances with Homelander?

SUSAN: It might look different, but I think there's something interesting for both of them in being that close to power. When we find them, neither of them are close, it's not even a dream that they would have that much power, that many resources, that much support for whatever kind of world that they can build. So, it might be two different ends, but I think it's the attraction to power.

VALERIE: Yeah, yeah, I would agree with that, and I think that Firecracker, certainly, among other things, represents, you know, women who access power through proximity, especially in patriarchal systems, rather than from their own empowerment, but for her, I think her motivation is, despite appearances, you know, she really cares about her base. She really cares about people who feel marginalized for certain reasons and wants to be a voice for those people. So, there is actually something in her mind that was like altruistic as a motivation. How that comes out is another story.

ROHAN: Colby, it's no secret that Ashley doesn't exactly see eye to eye with Sage and Firecracker all season long - how do you think she feels about these two super-powered women coming into her territory at Vought?

COLBY: I think she's pissed off. Sage comes in and she starts talking to Homelander in a way that Ashley has never been able to talk to Homelander, and she's not getting lasered in the face. And it's like, well hang on a second, like, what is this? How does this woman have all of this power all of a sudden, and also, Firecracker, without any spoilers, is able to give and communicate with Homelander in a way that Ashley has never been able to and so, she's incredibly threatened in that way, and, all of a sudden, her job is is at risk. So, navigating that is tricky for her because all of a sudden, the reason why she stayed at Vought, which is to stay in power and to be in power is ripped from underneath her, so she's pissed.

The Boys will premiere its fourth season on June 13, 2024, with three episodes, followed by a new episode each week, ending with the epic season finale on Thursday, July 18. The eight-episode season will stream exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

In Season Four, 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 Boys 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.

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Phil Sgriccia, Michaela Starr, Paul Grellong, David Reed, Meredith Glynn, Judalina Neira, Ken F. Levin, and Jason Netter also serve as executive producers. The Boys is produced by Sony Pictures Television, Amazon MGM Studios with Kripke Enterprises, Original Film, and Point Grey Pictures.

That last bit about Sage, wasn't that pretty the same thing with the nazi chick and that was before they started phucking.

Okay more chicks.

I just hope this season is better than the last one. Things have been sliding downhill quality-wise episode by episode.

Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett has been an unsung hero of this show , she’s so good at being just the worst lol.

There are moments where I feel bad for her in recent seasons but she quickly dispels that sentiment by going back to her terrible self.

I could see her turning on him when he’s at his lowest but likely going to jail for her crimes aswell.

Making Ashley pull her hair out and going bald was hilarious. She’s a female Lex Luthor 🤣🤣🤣
