This time around, The Boys season 4 promises to be even more chaotic than its predecessors. Yes, the Supes are returning. Even better, the next season will start shooting soon.

Our The Boys season 3 finale explanation guide will help you understand its happenings if you’ve already seen the last episode. There will be more Supe-powered fighting to come.


We’d want to say more right now, but doing so would force us to ruin a lot of the surprise. There is no way that we can even consider sneezing in the vicinity of The Boys season 3 episode 1’s most devastating moments.

Let’s take a look at what’s in store for the Prime Video series that has reinforced its status as one of Amazon’s greatest offerings. This, of course, is a spoiler notice for the third season of The Boys:

The Boys season 4 is confirmed

For The Boys season 4, we didn’t have to wait long. Season 4 of Prime Video’s smash Emmy-nominated series The Boys, co-produced with Sony Pictures Television, will launch on June 10, 2022, a week after the series’ explosive third season debuted, according to a press release(opens in new tab) released on that day.


The show’s viewership has grown by 17% since season two as a result of the statement. Growth is growth, even if it isn’t as dramatic as the surge from season one to season two (+238%).

The Boys season 4 release date speculation

Hopefully, the fourth season of The Boys will not be hampered by a major production problem. It was one of the rare seasons to escape a Covid-19-related delay in the preceding year.

Considering that filming for season 3 lasted about 6.5 months (from February 24 to September 10, 2021(opens in new tab)), and Karl Urban told Collider(opens in new tab) that he expects to begin filming on August 22, 2022, we can estimate that they should be finished filming by February or March 2023, provided this new season requires the same amount of effort. Season 3 finished with everyone in the same place, caught in the fight between The Boys and Homelander, which makes sense given how Season 2 ended.


As a result, the third season of The Boys took 266 days to make its way to Prime Video. In order to receive the season, we may have to wait until the summer or perhaps autumn. So, to summarize: The Boys season 4 will air somewhere in the latter half of 2023.

The Boys season 4 cast: Who’s coming back?

Working at The Boys can only be a positive experience. All of the show’s key characters will return this season, thus regular cast members enjoyed a lot of employment security this year. First and foremost are The Boys themselves, who have made it out alive, including Hughie, Butcher, Annie January (who has dropped the Starlight identity and costume), Mother’s Milk, Frenchie, and Kimiko.

Homelander, A-Train, The Deep, Ashley Barrett, Victoria Neuman, and Stan Edgar, on the other hand, are all still living.


Here’s the The Boys season 4 cast we expect to return.

  • Karl Urban as Billy Butcher
  • Jack Quaid as Hughie
  • Erin Moriarty as Annie January fka Starlight
  • Antony Starr as Homelander
  • Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk
  • Tomer Capone as Frenchie
  • Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko
  • Chace Crawford as The Deep
  • Jessie T. Usher as A-Train
  • Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett
  • Claudia Doumit as Victoria Neuman
  • Giancarlo Esposito as Stan Edgar
  • Cameron Crovetti as Ryan
  • Laila Robins as Grace Mallory
  • Jim Beaver as Robert Singer aka Dakota Bob

MM’s family, including Monique (Frances Turner) and Janine (Liyou Abere), will very certainly return, as will Todd (Matthew Gorman), Monique’s ex-boyfriend, who made an appearance in the finale. However, if he was killed by a falling statue, it would be great news.

Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve and Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy are characters that are now off the table but are still expected to return. Even if Soldier Boy or any other ancient Supes return, Paul Reiser can easily play The Legend.


The Boys season 4: Who’s dead?

There will be no further appearances from Black Noir or Lamar Bishop (Graham Gauthier), who were killed off in the season 3 finale by Homelander and The Deep, respectively.

On the way to the season finale, the TNT Twins Tommy (Jake Doolan) and Tessa (Kristin Booth) were all killed by their former comrades, including Crimson Countess, Gunpowder, Swatto, Mindstorm, and the TNT Twins — Tommy (Jack Doolan) and Tessa (Kristin Booth).

The Boys season 4 plot: What happens now?

Season 4 of The Boys looks a lot like season 3 of The Boys. Vought’s crowd cheered when Homelander shot and killed a civilian in broad sight, but it doesn’t mean he’s out of the running. A fresh round of recruitment drives by The Seven and an all-out assault by The Boys against Homelander will be the order of the day.


Since a result, Billy Butcher’s life is now on a timer, as doctors say he has just 18 months to live because of his Temp-V use. This means he’ll be even more motivated to assassinate Homelander than usual.

Butcher hasn’t given up on his pledge to Becca to keep Ryan from his father’s grasp.

Victoria Neuman, the current VP candidate, is likewise rising to power in the background. Homelander will have greater protection and authority as a result of this. Since Homelander has given Stan Edgar the boot, it’s reasonable to assume that he might assist The Boys.
