The boys season 4 – more chaos, more power, more supes!
We’ve now seen three seasons of Amazon Prime Video’s superhero spoof comedy The Boys, each one crazier than the last. However, as the show unfolds, we get to know the characters more and better, including heroes like Hughie, Starlight, and Billy Butcher, as well as villains like Homelander and Soldier Boy.
Still, as the program approaches Season 4—which was formally announced on June 10—you begin to wonder if there is an end in sight. The show has done an excellent job of making us fall in love with its primary characters while consistently upping the stakes with each breathtaking moment. Eric Kripke, the showrunner, clearly has a plan, since each season of The Boys does an excellent job of hinting what’s to come in the next. We can only hope it arrives soon.
Following a season that included a superhero who exploded a penis from the inside and a massive superhero orgy, you begin to wonder just how far—and how much further—things can go. But this crew has yet to disappoint us, so our aspirations (and expectations) remain as high as a Homelander sail into the sky.
Will there be a fourth season of The Boys?
There will undoubtedly be! Season 4 of The Boys was first announced on June 10, 2022.
When will Season 4 of The Boys be released?
That is currently up in the air. In a recent interview with Collider, star Karl Urban (who plays Butcher) stated that filming for Season 4 would begin in August 2022.
That may mean we receive Season 4 as soon as the spring of 2023—but we’re not holding our breath. After all, Season 2 premiered in the fall of 2020, while Season 3 won’t arrive until the summer of 2022. However, sometime around 2023 appears to be a safe bet.
What will the fourth season of The Boys be about?
We know what we have to work with from the end of Season 3, and it’s quite a bunch. Butcher’s brain has effectively turned into Swiss cheese as a result of way too much Temp-V, and he has been given 12-18 months to live. Who knows how far down the timeline we’ll be when we return to Season 4?
Perhaps more importantly, at the end of Season 3, Homelander (in a clear take on Donald Trump’s famous “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters” quote from 2016) laser-cut the head of a protestor into a million pieces…and his adoring fans cheered him on. What precedent does this establish? That’s not a good one! Homelander was joined at this event by his son Ryan, who had followed his father after the confrontation with Soldier Boy and Butcher. All of this is bad.
In The Boys comics, SPOILER!, Black Noir is a supercharged clone of Homelander who goes insane even more than Homelander himself—and his darkest acts are eventually attributed on him. With Ryan’s sinister smirk at the end of the season, may he become as evil as his father? We already know that the Black Noir plot cannot follow that route, so perhaps a hybrid of the two occurs.
Isn’t that also bad? Victoria Neumann is running as Dakota Bob Singer’s Vice President, having gotten Stan Edgar out of the way and streamlined power for Homelander (The Deep assassinated the prior running mate on Homelander’s behalf, opening the way for this). That puts the head-popper just one head-pop away from the most powerful position in the free world. There’s a lot to discover here, people.
The Boys: Varsity, a spin-off of The Boys, will most likely be released before Season 4—and will tie in with the events of Season 3.
A new spin-off of The Boys, The Boys Presents: Varsity, or just Varsity, was ordered in 2020 and is now under production. Varsity has been described as a college-themed spinoff of The Boys, with the show set at “Godolkin University School of Crimefighting,” a school run by Vought, where the young adult Supes will be tested in Hunger Games-style challenges; the show also has “all the heart, satire, and raunch of The Boys.”
In an interview with Deadline, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke stated that the two shows will take place concurrently.
“There is definitely crossover, and we’re working hard to create a universe in which some of the challenges and storylines from Season 3 carry over to the first season of Varsity. There’s a presidential campaign going on in the background of that season, and certain things are going on at that school that are both in response to Season 3 of The Boys. There’s Soldier Boy, and so on, but there are also some fresh storylines unfolding in that season of the spinoff that we need to pick up and carry into Season 4 of the program.”
Who will be in The Boys Season 4?
Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Jessie T. Usher, Tomer Capone, Colby Minifie, Karen Fukuhara, and, most likely, Cameron Crovetti will all return.
There are probably those people who are more unsure. Soldier Boy was put back on the shelf, leaving Jensen Ackles for a rainy day when the show needs a wild card back in the mix. Queen Maeve appears to have found her way out of town, but this could backfire; Dominique McElligott may or may not return.
We all know that Black Noir is no longer alive. However, as Kripke stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, that costume may be worn by someone else. And Nathan Mitchell, the actor, will carry off where…well, Nathan Mitchell left off.
“It’s clear that Black Noir’s role as a hero is far from over. It’s only that the man who was inside [the Noir costume] in season 3 is no longer there “He stated. “However, Nathan will be playing a really unique and entertaining character who will be wearing the outfit next season.”

Season 4 of Prime Video’s The Boys has already begun production, and the group is already teasing spectators with all of the surprises in store. Specifically, actress Erin Moriarty, who teased something unusual on social media.
Moriarty remarked in an Instagram story, “Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Attached was a photo showing herself and co-stars Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Tomer Capone, and Laz Alonso gazing out of a vault-like area, similar to the one they were in during Season 3.

Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios’ head of global television, previously teased the escalation of The Boys, saying before Season 3’s release, “We knew from our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys that the show was going to get even bolder – an impressive feat given the show’s Emmy-nominated second season… The Boys keeps pushing narrative limits while simultaneously being compulsively entertaining and threading the line on social satire that seems all too true.”
Season 4 was announced before of Season 3’s broadcast, with actor Karl Urban announcing in March, “I’m filming The Boys until the end of the year.” This followed previous claims, dating back to 2021, that Prime Video had approved a fourth season.

In Season 3, Billy Butcher and Hughie used a temporary version of Compound V to take on the Vought and members of The Seven. Butcher and the Boys, desperate to bring Homelander down, searched for and awoke a dormant supe, Soldier Boy. While specifics about the new season’s narrative are scant, actor Jensen Ackles hinted that the Seven’s previous leader may not have met his end.
Season 4 of The Boys won’t be available on Prime Video for a while, but the Vought Universe has lots more in store. Prime Video is producing a spinoff series set on a supe college in addition to a second season of the anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical! The project, dubbed Gen-V, is the franchise’s first live-action spinoff. Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Chance Perdomo as Emma Shaw, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger as Golden Boy, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, and Marco Pigossi as Doctor Edison Cardosa are among the cast members.
The Boys’ first three seasons, as well as The Boys Presents: Diabolical!, are now accessible on Prime Video.
Jensen Ackles Landing The Role On The Boys Just As Supernatural Was Ending (And Beat Movie Stars To Do It)
Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new
Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new post resulted in a Supernatural reunion, since creator Eric Kripke also oversees the Amazon Prime program. The actor has spoken openly about how he landed Soldier Boy just as Supernatural was wrapping up. It even included defeating some Hollywood stars.
Eric Kripke described how Jensen Ackles got the part of Soldier Boy in 2021, but now it’s Ackles’ turn to tell his side of the tale. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, he discussed his experience on The Boys and how he got the part of Supe. Soldier Boy was originally intended for an older actor, but when Ackles contacted Kripke to ask his thoughts on a different project, the discussion took an unexpected turn: “I said, ‘So what’s going on over there at The Boys?” We were about to finish watching Supernatural when I realized, ‘You know, I’m going to be jobless.’ I just tossed it out there playfully. ‘Look, dude, if you want to come over to The Boys, I’ll bring you over here no problem,’ he offered right away. I’d be delighted to have you.’ ‘Sign me up!’ I said.
Given that Supernatural was nearing the end of its 15-season run, it’s no surprise that Ackles leaped at the chance to join The Boys! The actor said that Kripke gave him several audition tapes and that he instantly wanted in.
However, Ackles was skeptical that he would even receive the role. While he didn’t say who since he’d be blacklisted, he did say that after hearing who was on the shortlist, he was certain he wasn’t going to get Soldier Boy: I do know that there were certain names that I believe the network was considering. A brief list of names was provided. And when [Kripke] recited a handful of those names to me, I said to myself, ‘Oh, well, there’s no way.’ I don’t stand a chance. Those people are Hollywood stars.’
Fortunately, Jensen Ackles was cast as Soldier Boy, and the rest is history. It makes me wonder who else was up for the position and who made Ackles so concerned that he wouldn’t win it. Maybe one of those actors will appear as a different hero in The Boys Season 4, when it airs?
Meanwhile, Ackles was not the only Supernatural performer to go right into a new project once the show wrapped. Jared Padalecki agreed to play the title character in the Walker revival before the last season of Supernatural had even wrapped (and prior to the COVID shutdowns). Walker launched in SPN’s timeslot the following year, and the third season is already in the works, with prequel series Walker: Independence set to debut this autumn. In addition, Ackles’ Supernatural prequel The Winchesters will air in a few months.
There isn’t much information regarding The Boys Season 4 or if Soldier Boy will return. It’s unclear if he’ll return to cause more havoc now that he’s been taken back under and frozen in the season finale. Jensen Ackles, on the other hand, has been cast as a series regular on ABC’s Big Sky.
Season 3 of The Boys is now accessible with an Amazon Prime membership, while all 15 seasons of Supernatural are available with a Netflix subscription.
In One Important Way, The Boys’ Soldier Boy Outperforms Captain America
While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essen
While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essential way—at least in terms of the live-action version.
Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) is a Super Soldier in the Amazon Prime Video original series The Boys who was produced via the usage of Compound V—a serum that can convert individuals into superhumans. Soldier Boy was originally only extraordinarily strong and invulnerable. However, after extensive testing in a Russian laboratory, Soldier Boy obtained the ability to take away the abilities of other superheroes with a catastrophic explosion that he can generate from inside his own body. While that powerful skill is amazing (and one that Captain America lacks), it isn’t the reason The Boys’ Soldier Boy is more impressive than Captain America. The true explanation is significantly more subtle, but immensely more helpful in combat settings.

The Avengers receive a distress call from a region of the planet that has been taken over by communist tyranny in Avengers #18 by Stan Lee and Don Heck, which was a huge matter given that this issue was published not long after the ‘Red Scare’ in the United States. Following a distress signal from a place in eastern Asia, the Avengers are met by communist officials from that region who pose as people in danger in order to deceive the Avengers into falling into their trap, all as part of their strategy to show that communism was better to capitalism. When the Avengers realize their error in taking this call, they are promptly attacked with a knockout gas that renders all of them unconscious, including Captain America.
M.M. tosses a smoke grenade at Soldier Boy in The Boys season 3 episode 6 titled ‘Herogasm,’ but Soldier Boy picks up the grenade and inhales the deadly smoke merely for the head rush, indicating that it has absolutely no effect on him at all. Captain America’s physique isn’t as powerful as Soldier Boy’s, as seen by Cap being put unconscious by the same chemical that took out Hawkeye, who is practically just an ordinary human, in Avengers #18. Being resistant to sleeper gas during a combat is very valuable since it is generally one of the first things an adversary would attempt to employ to target a group of heroes they intend to capture. Soldier Boy can only be knocked unconscious by a fatal nerve poison, therefore if he had been in Captain America’s place in this Avengers issue, the enemies would have had no idea what struck them.
Of course, this comparison is only valid between the comic book Captain America and the live-action Soldier Boy, since Soldier Boy in the comics cannot compete with any version of Captain America. Butcher immediately kills the Soldier Boy from The Boys comics after he is repeatedly insulted and molested by Homelander. Soldier Boy in the comics is the polar opposite of Captain America in terms of strength and ferocious courage. While The Boys’ live-action Soldier Boy is similarly a dark twist on a Captain America-like figure, he is more strong than the original since his body can withstand much more torture than Marvel’s top Super Soldier.
Following that, Captain America’s Avengers training is much too grueling for the MCU.
