There are four episodes of The Boys Season 3 that have aired so far and the responses have remained positive. Just like any other TV show, a lot of viewers are wondering if the series will continue beyond the current season and now it looks like we finally have the official news regarding its future.
Prime Video has announced that The Boys has been renewed for a fourth season following the huge success of the first three episodes of the third season. They reported that the worldwide audience of the series has grown by 17% from the second season and 234% from the first season.
"From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder—an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season," Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, said in a statement.
He continued, "The Boys continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that."
With the success of the series, it has spawned two spinoffs: the animated anthology series Diabolical and the untitled college-set series that is currently in production. So far, the former hasn't received a second season renewal, but Sanders said in an interview with Deadline that there is a possibility that it will get another installment.
"There is absolutely the possibility," he said. "We were excited when we launched. We thought there was a two-fold opportunity with Diabolical. One was to get The Boys fans excited about and get it out early. But we also wanted to see if there was another bite of the apple once the mothership show returned, and we are seeing real engagement and growth of the show there.
We’ve definitely had conversations with the producers about what the next installment would look like."
Sanders also hinted that The Boys universe is not done expanding as they are exploring more ideas for potential spinoffs although they are focusing on the projects that they have at the moment.
"There’s ideas beyond the shows that we have. We want to pace ourselves," he said. "The launch of the show this season so far has really blown us away, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard about more but for the time being, we are focused on this next show and making sure that it lives up to everything it needs to be, and so far, we are on track."
It is exciting that The Boys is guaranteed to return for another season and it just shows that the series is getting a lot of support and viewership from fans. There is no doubt that the viewers are willing to watch the series for more seasons. It is curious to see what kind of craziness and raunchy adventure they have in store for the next season.
New episodes of The Boys premiere every Friday on Prime Video.
