‘The Boys’ Season 4: Release Date Confirmed

While we’ve had a taste of the wild and violent world with the Gen V spin-off, we’re still itching for a new season of The Boys and the future is looking bright. Prime Video has confirmed that The Boys season four release date is June 13th, and what’s more, the streamer has dropped an all-new trailer to keep us on the hook.

The explosive two-minute clip takes us deeper into The Boys season four than we’ve been before, shining a light on the intense violence, wrath and vengeance that is set to shake up the beloved series. Opening with a heartfelt monologue from Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher to his rag-tag team of vigilantes, the new trailer confirms a reunion is in the works.

“I look back at my life and all I see are the messes I made. And I ain’t got time to fix it,” Butcher says “I can do one thing right with the time I’ve got left. but I can’t do it alone. I can’t do it without you.”

From there, we see Homelander and his merry band of corrupt supes beating, bludgeoning and brutalising their way through the city, hellbent on destroying everything in their path, but Butcher has a plan. Taking the team to a secret underground bunker, he reveals he has found the solution – a virus that kills supes. The trailer culminates in a series of intense action sequences depicting what new supe Firecracker describes as a ‘biblical war’.

According to Prime Video, the first three episodes of the Emmy-nominated global hit series will debut on that day, with the rest of the season to air weekly. The recently completed WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes had initially delayed production on The Boys season four, but with new agreements in the works, Prime Video has confirmed that our favourite morally complicated superheroes are finally ready to head back to screens.

As anticipation continues to mount for the new season, we’re here to spill the beans on what’s coming your way.

The Boys Season 4 Release Date

In November, Prime Video confirmed that The Boys season four will premiere in 2024 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. In late February, the streaming service confirmed that the much-anticipated new season would premiere on June 13, kicking off with an initial three episodes, before dropping the rest of the season in weekly instalments.

The announcement came just a few short months after the WGA and AMPTP officially reached a tentative deal on a new contract, putting an end to some of the industry uncertainty. Filming for The Boys season four wrapped in 2023, with the series creators confirming that all shots had been completed by mid-April. The season was originally slated for a late 2023 or early 2024 release, however, due to the industry complications, additional months for post-production were added to the schedule.

The Boys Season 4 Cast Expectations

Steering away from the season three rollercoaster, we can expect the core cast to return in The Boys season four to unleash a fresh wave of mayhem. The familiar faces returning once again include Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Capone as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, Erin Moriarty as Starlight, and Karl Urban as Billy Butcher.

We witnessed some heavy casualties within The Seven last season, including Dominique McElligott’s Queen Maeve, who sacrificed herself to save everyone by forcibly ejecting Soldier Boy out of a window. Meanwhile, Nathan Mitchell’s Black Noir had his own unexpected twist, with Homelander seemingly killing him at the end of the season.

Homelander remains very much alive and as relentless as ever, which means we can expect Antony Starr to reprise his role in The Boys season four. Joining him will be Chase Crawford as The Deep, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, and Colby Minifie as Vought’s CEO Ashley. Homelander also brought his son, Ryan (Cameron Crovetti), into the forefront towards the conclusion of season three, so it’s highly likely we’ll witness more of his story. 

As for Giancarlo Esposito, who played Stan Edgar, the former Vought leader, it’s unclear if he’ll return. Stan Edgar’s exit was a big deal, thanks to Neuman and Homelander, and he’s been out of the picture since. Speaking of Neuman, Claudia Doumit’s headpopper will not only be returning for season four but also could potentially be a major catalyst in the upcoming season’s narrative.

New Characters

The Boys season four will also be introducing some fresh talents to the ensemble, with Curry and Heyward taking on the roles of Firecracker and Sister Sage. Sister Sage is characterized as someone who’s “a thousand steps ahead of you,” while Firecracker is known to have a “short fuse.”

The upcoming season will also see a major addition to the cast, as Jeffrey Dean joins the show in a yet-to-be-revealed role. Dean took to X to share a sneak peek of his character, standing alongside Karl Urban’s Butcher, and expressed his excitement, saying, “Can’t tell you how excited I am! Big thanks to @therealKripke and @AMCPlus & @TheBoysTV for finding a way with both schedules. No easy task. SO DAMN STOKED!”

Speaking about the arrival of the new cast members, creator Eric Kripke commented, “These new Supes are some of the best & craziest ever written for The Boys. You are going to love them. And by love, I mean be absolutely horrified & a tiny bit nauseous. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY YOU GUYS.”

Here’s the expected lineup for The Boys season four cast:

  • Karl Urban as William “Billy” Butcher
  • Jack Quaid as Hugh “Hughie” Campbell Jr.
  • Antony Starr as John/Homelander
  • Erin Moriarty as Annie January/Starlight

The Boys Season Four Plot Rumours

As for The Boys season four plot, not much has been revealed, which is understandable, especially considering how the events of the Gen V spin-off could tie in with the main series. The first teaser trailer for The Boys season four offered a glimpse at the political power struggle, however, the chaos surrounding Homelander’s sadistic tendencies and his growing public support remain largely a mystery.

The Boys Season Four Official Synopsis

Season four will pick up right after the events of the recent college-focused spin-off Gen V and as per the official synopsis, “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 as well as his job as The Boys’ leader,” the official logline reads. “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.”

Taking care not to give away too many spoilers, Eric Kripke dropped hints about The Boys season four plot. According to the showrunner, the upcoming season will primarily focus on the tumultuous struggle between Homelander and Billy Butcher, as they vie for young Ryan’s future.

The series is set to continue from where it left off, delving into how Hughie copes with the fallout from Victoria Neuman’s shocking actions, which included taking out Congress members and increasing Homelander’s influence. Speaking of Homelander, he has gone completely off the rails and now, with his son Ryan in tow, he’s gaining a significant following among the alt-right in the United States.

Season three concluded with Homelander going as far as killing a protester in front of a crowd, and shockingly, they began applauding. In a conversation with IGN, Kripke provided some intriguing clues about where this storyline is headed.

“If allowed to raise Ryan, he will raise Ryan to be a second Homelander, which will have apocalyptic stakes;” he said. “If he stays in that environment, he’s on his way to becoming another Homelander. And so I think it’s a hint at what one of the major conflicts in season four will be, which is Butcher and Homelander having this battle over Ryan.”

What We Think The Boys Season Four Will Be About

Judging by what we’ve seen so far, The Boys season four promises political drama and signature supes chaos as Claudia Doumit‘s Victoria Neuman inches closer to the Oval Office. But with Homelander’s popularity soaring despite his heinous crimes, and Doumit under his control, the real power lies with him.

Meanwhile, Karl Urban’s Butcher faces a different battle. His repeated Temp V use has left him with months to live, and he’s lost his leadership of The Boys due to the team’s distrust. Homelander’s son, Ryan (Cameron Crovetti), further complicates things, who’s now living with Homelander which could potentially spark another major conflict between Butcher and Homelander.

In a recent interview with Collider, Jessie T. Usher, who plays A-Train, spilled the beans, saying that the level of chaos in the next season was “a surprise to everyone”, including showrunner Eric Kripke. In fact, Kripke himself tweeted about an outrageously over-the-top sequence in season 4, labelling it as “easily a top five moment” for him.

Producer Stephan Fleet doubled down on the craziness, hinting that season four might feature “the most disgusting thing I have seen working in this business thus far.” And as if that wasn’t enough, Antony Starr, the actor behind Homelander, teased that season four will bring “the most bizarre thing he’s ever done” into the mix. The season three finale of The Boys has brought about a significant shift in dynamics for our favourite anti-Supe squad, who’s now regrouped and are more determined than ever to take down Homelander and the rest of the Supes.

However, the finale also threw a curveball by revealing Claudia Doumit’s Victoria Neuman was the Head Popper all along, a hidden Supe adopted by Vought CEO Stan Edgar. With her alliance with Homelander and her new role as Vice President, she could play a significant part in The Boys season four’s plot.

Towards the end, we even discovered that Temp V had made irreversible changes to Butcher, leading to the development of dangerous brain tumours. The long-term repercussions are unclear, but Butcher’s transformed condition and his survival will surely be another major focus in The Boys season four.

Furthermore, Butcher’s health is in a precarious state due to his use of temporary Compound V, leading to a terminal illness. While in the comics, Butcher met his end after taking down Homelander, the TV series leaves his fate uncertain. Will history repeat itself, or could there be an unforeseen twist?

Claudia Doumit, who portrays the head-popping congresswoman, suggests that Gen-V will introduce some key elements for The Boys season four. Doumit shared with Entertainment Weekly. “Gen V lays a lot of the groundwork and a lot of the foundations that season four will be built on for The Boys. So, watch it because it gives you a lot of information.”
