The Boys Season 4: Billy Butcher DIES, Will The Show Return?

The Boys Season 4

It’s been a long wait for Prime Video’s The Boys fans. Since the superhero drama debuted, it has been a massive hit on the streaming platform, breaking all the records. And the third season just raised the stakes high. With such an incredible performance, fans now wait to see their favorite characters back in The Boys Season 4. And guess what? The streaming platform has finally dropped the release date of season 4 of The Boys. That means the wait is about to be over! So, without further ado, let’s head to see when the show will hit our screens.

   

For a brief, The Boys is based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic series of the same title, focusing on the rivalry between two groups, ‘The Seven’ and ‘The Boys.’ The series began with a group of vigilantes named The Boys, who wanted to expose the real face of the so-called Supes, who were actually self-serving and corrupt. But as the series unfolded, it threw more challenges to The Boys’ face as it became challenging to expose The Seven, primarily when the world worships them. While the obstacles made things more complicated for them, the finale hinted at The Boys’ miserable ending. Are they still willing to take their revenge? Let’s see!

The Boys Season 4 Is Back!

There’s no doubt that Prime Video‘s The Boys has no match. As soon as the series hit the giant streaming platform, it broke all the records with its gritty and dark narration. And this is the reason why the streaming giant renewed The Boys Season 4 within a week after the third season debut. Amazon Studios’ head of global TV, Vernon Sanders, said that since they began discussing the third season with the creative team, they knew the show would get even bolder.

Sanders also said in the same interview that The Boys continued to push its boundaries by crafting an even more impressive and wild storyline. Plus, the social satirical concept was quite entertaining, as it had drawn a larger audience, garnering an incredible global reach. Further, the series viewership is on another level. It has gained 8.7 solid stars on IMDb, while on Rotten Tomatoes, it gained 93 percent. Thus, there’s no brainer why Sanders looks forward to The Boys Season 4.

Is The Boys Season 4 The Final Season?

As soon as The Boys Season 3 hit the streaming platform, many speculated that the show was nearing its end. That was because the vigilante group The Boys got separated, and Billy Butcher was counting his last days. So, it immediately made everyone believe that The Sevens had won the game and it would serve as the finale of the series. However, the series creator, Eric Kripke, refused to comment on this speculation.

But he did tell RadioTimes that the speculation was baseless. That was because, as the showrunner, how long the series would run was quite unexpected. Further, he stated that he had no longer given the series any endpoints. And since the series is a massive hit, it doesn’t seem like it will end just like this. Kripke added that people once believed Supernatural would conclude after five successful seasons. But in reality, it ran for almost 15 seasons. So, it could also be possible in The Boys’ case.

The Boys Season 4: Trailer Hints At A Massive Political Drama Ahead

The series recently dropped its mindblowing The Boys Season 4 trailer, hinting at a sudden change in Homelander’s arc. It begins with Homelander turning his back to the camera, where a political consultant advises him to follow the divide-and-rule method. The person tells Homelander that the best way to use his powers is by diving people and letting them fight. So, it will give them more reasons to become a hero in their eyes by rescuing others.

As the trailer progresses, it focuses on the presidential campaign of Victoria Neuman and Robert Singer. This particular appearance hints at the potential crossover between Gen V and The Boys. While the political drama will play a significant role in The Boys Season 4, the trailer also hints at a new arrival. Homelander’s son Ryan has become part of the main cast and will create complications for Billy Butcher.

This is because he has been seen smiling at the scene where Homelander kills a protestor. Will Ryan’s closeness to Homelander bridge the gap between him and Butcher, as he’s Becca’s son? Further, Butcher has already lost his group and is on the verge of dying. So, it remains unclear whether he will return to avenge The Sevens.

A Super Bowl Parody Ad

The Super Bowl is making waves on the internet, and The Boys decides to take advantage of it. Recently, the series dropped a clip that appeared to be a parody of a Super Bowl commercial. The clip plays on the sentiments and emotions of people. Ultimately, it focuses on Homelander’s campaign, his son running in the field, and other Supes saving the day. While the commercial appears no different, it later reveals that they were just selling Vought’s Turbo Rush energy drink in the ad. That might play a role in the V-drug arc.

The Boys Season 4: Cast Details

Of course, The Boys won’t be without Karl Urban and Jack Quaid as Billy Hutcher and Hughie Campbell. So, indeed, they will return. Besides them, Erin Moriarty as Starlight, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, and Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk will return. Tomer Capone as Frenchie, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Antony Starr as Homelander, and Simon Pegg as Hugh Campbell Snr will also return.

The other remaining cast includes Cameron Crovetti as Ryan, Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, Jim Beaver as Bob, and Olivia Morandin as Zoe Neuman. While the main and recurring cast will return for The Boys Season 4, fans will also be delighted by some new f aces. Valorie Curry as Firecracker and Susan Heyward as Sister Sage will join. Along with them, Nathan Mitchell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Rob Benedict, Elliot Knight, and Rosemarie DeWitt will also join season 4 of The Boys.

What To Expect In The Boys Season 4?

The official synopsis is already out! So, fans don’t have to wait that long. As per the synopsis, Victoria Neuman will work on the political campaign. They are all set to make Homelander the new face of their party. With his great power and fame, it will indeed bring some reinforcement to Neuman’s political campaign. On the other hand, Butcher will face some tough times. This is because he has lost both Becca’s son and his group. So, now he needs to find a way to avenge The Sevens in The Boys Season 4.

While his life takes a downward spiral, the trailer suggests Morgan’s character will bring some change in Butcher’s arc. Will it be in his favor? Meanwhile, Starlight will return to action. In the third season, she hung the cape. But it looks like something will force her to return to her Supes’ avatar. As for Homelander, he will do more nasty things than before in the next season.
