The Boys Season 4 has added two new cast members. One face, in particular, will be familiar to those who’ve played Detroit: Become Human as Valorie Curry, who provided voice and motion capture for Kara. Curry will play Firecracker, a supe with no origins from the comic book source material.
The same can be said for the second new supe on the scene – Susan Heyward, who’ll be portraying Sister Sage. Showrunner Eric Kripke had described the two characters as “some of the best & craziest ever written” for the show. Kripke promised in a tweet that fans would “love them. And by love, I mean be absolutely horrified & a tiny bit nauseous.”
Plus, Cameron Crovetti, who plays Ryan, has been promoted to a series regular. The promotion suggests more drama as Homelander takes Ryan under his wing. Plot details and power-related proclivities connected Firecracker and Sister Sage remain unknown – but the name Sage could suggest a link to the Sage Grove Center from Season 2. The Sage Grove Center was a psychiatric hospital and subsidiary of Vought International.

The facility ran tests on patients by injecting them with Compound V in a bid to create supes. A riot leads to the patients running amok in the facility. It is later established a supe with telekinetic powers, Cindy, escaped – so it’s plausible that others had too.
As previously reported by FlickLuster, Eric Kripke teased that the upcoming fourth season could see the return of Queen Maeve and Soldier Boy – promising they “wouldn’t “reach the end of the series without seeing Maeve again. I’m hoping we see Soldier Boy again.”
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Kapon, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jensen Ackles, Karen Fukuhara, Dominique McElligott, Simon Pegg, Chace Crawford, Jesse Usher, Colby Minifie, and Giancarlo Esposito. All three seasons are available to watch now on Amazon Prime.
