Prime Video’s groundbreaking series The Boys will draw to a dramatic close after its fifth season, showrunner Eric Kripke announced today. The news comes just days before the much-anticipated premiere of Season 4, set to debut on June 13, 2024.

“#TheBoys Season 4 Premiere Week is a good time to announce: Season 5 will be the Final Season!” Kripke posted on X (formerly Twitter). “Always my plan, I just had to be cagey till I got the final OK from Vought. Thrilled to bring the story to a gory, epic, moist climax. Watch Season 4 in 2 DAYS, cause the end has begun!”

About ‘The Boys’

The Boys, adapted from the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, has captivated audiences with its dark and satirical take on the superhero genre. The series follows Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and his team of vigilantes as they combat the corrupt and powerful superhero group known as The Seven, led by the egotistical and dangerous Homelander (Antony Starr). The ensemble cast includes Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Karen Fukuhara, among others.

Season 4 Highlights

Eric Kripke provided a tantalizing glimpse into the upcoming season, sharing a redacted sneak peek of the script for the final episode of Season 4. The teaser concluded with a bold message: “SEE YOU FOR OUR FINAL SEASON, MOTHERF—ERS!”

Season 4 promises high-stakes drama and intense action as characters vie for the soul of young Ryan Butcher. Kripke hinted at the looming threat Ryan poses, saying, “I don’t think the game’s over yet. I think [Ryan] saw this one thing and I think we should all be afraid because if he becomes another Homelander, that’s obviously really bad for the planet. But he’s still Becca’s kid and there’s still a shot that Butcher can pull him into the light.”

The Future of ‘The Boys’ Franchise

The series has expanded its universe with the successful spinoff Gen V, which debuted last year. Additionally, there is speculation about another spinoff titled The Boys: Mexico, though Kripke has stated it is still “a while away” from being official.

Premiere Details

The Boys Season 4 will be available for streaming on Prime Video starting June 13, 2024. Fans are encouraged to watch the new season as the series builds towards its epic conclusion in the fifth and final season.
