Homelander is standing beside his son Ryan in The Boys season 4

What Does ‘The Boys’ Have in Store for Season 4?

It's the beginning of the end!

The Boys season 4 is off to a lukewarm start. But hey, the way Homelander’s having a mid-life crisis and Butcher’s afraid of dying, things could get diabolical really fast here.

This season sees a bunch of new supes and humans in the mix. We’ve got Jeffrey Dean Morgan, another Supernatural import, joining The Boys’ crusade against the supes as Joe Kessler, an old friend of Butcher’s. There’s also Colin, a blast from Frenchie’s past that impacts his relationship with Kimiko.

Meanwhile, The Seven are finally filling in the blanks left by Starlight and Queen Maeve’s exit. Homelander brings in Sister Sage, whose superpower is being the smartest person on the planet. And Sage, in turn, recruits Firecracker. Her power on paper is rather sparky, but her true power is that she’s a right-winger mouthpiece with a vendetta against Starlight, and can instigate and turn people against the former member of the Seven.

Prime Video has renewed The Boys for a fifth and final season, and two days before season 4 premiered, show creator Erik Kripke described season 4 as the beginning of the end. Well, we’re seated!
