Amazon Prime renewed The Boys for a fourth season right in the middle of season three.

The third season of The Boys premiered on June 3, 2022. As a new episode is released each week, the executives over at Amazon have already confirmed that a new season is on the way. With only the confirmation on hand, we have limited information about the upcoming season. Here is everything we know so far about The Boys season four.

Since the fourth season for The Boys was already confirmed before the entire third season aired, there is still no news on when it will come out. If the next season of the series follows the trend of the earlier iterations of the show, it may be projected to come out by Summer 2023.

In one of his interviews for his most recent animated film, The Sea Beast, Karl Urban shared when they would start filming for The Boys season 4.

Yeah, we're starting I think August the 22nd, we're going to be starting season four. So I'm getting back, getting my Butcher back on, and I can't wait. It's a fun gang to play with, we work hard and play hard, and I can't wait to see where they take the characters from where we leave them at the end of this season.

The Boys Season 4 Filming

The Boys showrunner Erik Kripke subtly confirmed that filming for season 4 started on either August 21 or 22 when he posted a photo of the script on his Twitter.

Anthony Starr may still appear as Homelander along with Erin Moriarty as Starlight, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, and Dominique McElligot as Queen Maeve. Cameron Crovetti may still act as Ryan Butcher, and Giancarlo Esposito may return as Stan Edgar.

Nathan Mitchel may still play Black Noir, Colby Minifie may still return as Ashley Barret, and Claudia Doumit may still come back as Vic Neuman.

Season 3 newbies may also be part of season 4. This includes Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, Miles Gaton Villanueva as Supersonic, and Laurie Holden as the Crimson Countess. Sean Patrick Flanery may still be Gunpowder, and Nick Wechsler may still be Blue Hawk.

The character of Nina may still be Katia Winter, Monique may still be Frances Turner, and the TNT twins may still be played by Kristen Booth and Jack Doolan.

The latest addition to the cast of the series are Susan Heyward as Sister Sage, Valorie Curry as Firecracker, and Cameron Crovetti as Homelander's son, Ryan Butcher.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the latest addition to The Boys cast, most known for his portrayal of Negan on The Walking Dead. We still don't know who Morgan will be playing, and we know he will be going beyond expectations whatever he has to play.

Morgan will be reuniting with co-Supernatural alumni Erik Kripke and Jensen Ackles.

The Boys season 3 is not yet completed, so we don’t have any idea what the plot of the next season will be.

The third season promises a deeper dive into the psyche of The Seven and the relationships they have with each other. It is expected to show us how Billy plans to face Homelander and The Seven – Billy may have to use Compound V to match up with his nemesis.

Season 3 is also expected to introduce more characters into the mix like Soldier Boy, Nina, and the TNT Twins, Tessa and Tommy.

We can pull predictions about the plot of the next season when the third season is concluded.

Vernon Sanders, head of global television in Amazon Studios, released the following statement to accompany the news:

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. 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. We are immensely proud of the cast and crew that has spawned a franchise for Prime Video, and we look forward to bringing more of ‘The Boys’ to our customers.

The Boys Season 4 Trailer: Is There a Trailer for The Boys Season 4?

Season four of The Boys was only recently confirmed, which means their team may still be working on completing the show. The trailer for the first season came out on July 23, 2019, while the trailer for the second season was released around August 4, 2022. By the third season, the trailer was released early on May 17, 2022. If the fourth season of The Boys follows this same trend, it may only take a few short months for us to see an actual season four trailer, with the earliest probable date being around May to June 2023.

The Boys season 4 will be available for viewing on Amazon Prime now that the streaming service has confirmed the production of the next season. You can also watch the earlier seasons of the show on Amazon while waiting for the fourth season to release.

The entire The Boys franchise has become a certified hit ever since the release of its first season. Its fourth season has already been confirmed even before the third season ended, which is enough testimony to the faith the company has in the show and to the growing fan base. The Boys season four is in the works, so we only have a few short months to wait before the season finally comes out.
