The Boys season 4 has been in production since August, and we already know that Karl Urban and the rest of the cast will be joined by newcomers Valorie Curry and Susan Heyward. Also, Jeffrey Dean Morgan from The Walking Dead has signed on for a role that hasn’t been revealed yet.
Given that the end of season 3 was a big fight between Billy Butcher (Urban), Homelander (Antony Starr), and Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), there’s a lot to look forward to in the next chapter. Want to know more about what’s coming? Below, we go over everything we know about The Boys season 4 so far, from hints about the plot to which actors will be back to a possible release date. We also talk about what happened in season 3, so watch out for spoilers, and what we know about the upcoming spin-off. So scroll or we’ll call you a swear word or something…
When Will the Boys Season 4 be Released?
The Boys season 4 has not yet been given a release date. The show wasn’t picked up again until June 2022, and the last episode of the third season aired on July 8, 2022. There’s a good chance we’ll have to wait a while for new episodes.
Even though we don’t have any solid information, we’ve spent a lot of time looking at past seasons to try to figure out when the show will be back. Between the first and second seasons of the show, there was a gap of one year and one month.
Between the second and third seasons, there was a long gap of one year and eight months, which was made longer by the Coronavirus pandemic. According to Collider, Boys season 4 is expected to release in the fall of 2023.
Who Will Be Back for Season 4 of the Boys?
In the season three finale of The Boys, many characters were on the edge of dying, but only one of them actually died. We’re sad to say that Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell), whose guts were ripped out by Homelander, won’t be back for a second season (Antony Starr).
Even though Dominique McElligott’s Queen Maeve didn’t die too soon, it’s not clear if McElligott will play the role again. Her character arc seems to be over (more on that below), but we really hope to see her on the call sheet.
The following cast members are likely to be in season four of The Boys:
- Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell JrChace Crawford as The Deep
- Jessie T Usher as A-Train
- Cameron Crovetti as Ryan
- Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk (MM)
- Tomer Capone as Frenchie
- Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko Miyashiro
- Erin Moriarty as Starlight/Annie January
- Antony Starr as Homelander
- Giancarlo Esposito as Stan Edgar
- Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett
- Claudia Doumit as Victoria Neuman
We also think Soldier Boy will come back, which means more Jensen Ackles, which can’t be bad.
The Boys Season 4: Expected Plot
The plot of The Boys season 4 hasn’t been set in stone yet, but the end of season 3 gives us a pretty good idea of what will happen next.
The Boys are back together, and their plan to take down the Supes is more important than ever. But it looks like Victoria Neuman has become their main enemy. After making a deal with Homelander, her opponent was drowned by The Deep in the season finale, which gave her the Vice Presidential nomination. This makes her a candidate to be the most powerful Supe ever, at least in terms of politics.
But thanks to Starlight, they will have a little help this time. After trying to make changes from the inside, she is now a full-fledged member of team Butcher. After Temp V, he may need all the help he can get. Because of how the drug affects his body, he’s been told he’s living on borrowed time, so Billy will be in serious danger in the new season.
Kripke told Variety (opens in new tab) that they will go after Neuman while Butcher only has a few months left to live. The person who made the video said, “They’re up against the DeSantis ticket.” “That’s part of the fun of starting Season 4, which we’re still trying to figure out, but his clock is crazy. He has so much to do that he hasn’t even started yet.”
About Butcher’s path, the showrunner added: “What’s interesting about the question we’re asking about Butcher is whether or not he’s self-aware enough to know that he’s making his own bad luck. Does he know himself well enough to see if he can change? Some of the interesting things we’re talking about for Season 4 are listed above.”
There’s also Homelander. He is still as crazy as ever, and it seems like nothing can stop him. Even though the Super shot a bystander with a laser and shared his controversial and toxic views in a national TV address, the Storm Chasers are still on his side. He is now joined by his son Ryan, whose powers he made known to the world.
Kripke gave IGN a hint about where this story could go next when he talked about it. “If he’s allowed to raise Ryan, he’ll teach Ryan to be a second Homelander, which could lead to the end of the world. If he stays in that place, he’s going to end up like Homelander “Kripke said. “So I think it’s a hint that Butcher and Homelander will fight over Ryan, which will be one of the biggest problems in season four.”
We don’t know yet if Season 4 will have a new “big bad.” Soldier Boy has been stopped, but he is not dead. So when the next season comes around, he might be taken off the ice again. But we think Kripke will have a new trick up his sleeve for season 4 when we might finally meet someone who can beat Homelander for good.
