The Boys season 4 is officially happening. Here’s everything we know about The Boys season 4’s release date, cast, and story details after season 3.
Warning: Contains SPOILERS for The Boys season 3!
Following another massive season, The Boys season 4 is already on the way, and here is what is known about it. The wait for The Boys season 3 was longer than fans of Prime Video’s superhero satire were used to due to COVID-19. But the show’s continued success meant that there was a strong belief that the third season would not be the end. Prime Video confirmed this by announcing The Boys season 4 officially shortly after season 3 debuted.
The main story of The Boys season 3 revolved around a few major subplots: Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) getting superpowers from Temp-V, Homelander (Antony Starr) becoming more unhinged as The Seven’s leader, the reawakening of Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), and Starlight (Erin Moriarty) becoming more frustrated with her role in the Supe world. In typical The Boys fashion, the season delivered plenty of surprises, gruesome deaths, and other adult content. This included the long-awaited adaptation of Herogasm.

With the early renewal for The Boys season 4, viewers were then able to experience the third season with full confidence that this was not the end of the story. The Boys season 3 ending directly sets up the landscape of the Supe world that the fourth season will take place in. It could also change even more depending on how heavily The Boys spinoffs factor into the overall franchise plan. But now that season 3 is finished, here is everything we know about The Boys season 4’s release date, cast, story, and more.
When Will The Boys Season 4 Release?
Prime Video has not officially announced when The Boys season 4 release date will be. The series has traditionally been a summer release for Prime Video, with the first season releasing in July and the third season releasing in June. The Boys season 4 release date could be targeted for summer 2023. Those involved with the show have stated that filming is expected to begin in the fall of 2022, which could mean that a fall 2023 release is more likely. Barring a major setback, though, The Boys season 4 release date should fall somewhere in the second half of 2023.
The Boys Season 4 Cast (As We Know It)
As for The Boys season 4 cast, viewers can expect most of the main characters to once again be involved. The show is built around the quartet of Butcher, Hughie, Starlight, and Homelander, so Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, and Antony Starr will surely be back. Jensen Ackles previously teased his potential return as Soldier Boy in The Boys season 4 too. It should also be expected that Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), The Deep (Chace Crawford), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie), and Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) will appear.
The Boys Spinoffs In Development
There are two The Boys spinoffs in development alongside season 4 too. One is an untitled live-action spinoff set at Vought’s Supe college that is loosely based on the comics’ X-Men parody known as the G-Men. The spinoff cast includes Jaz Sinclair, Maddie Phillips, and Patrick Schwarzenegger’s Golden Boy. The other The Boys spinoff is a second season of the animated show The Boys Presents: Diabolical. Season 2 will tell another new batch of anthology stories that are not necessarily canon to the main series.
