Eric Kripke has confirmed that The Boys will not end after four seasons, meaning we can expect more bloodshed, profanities, and superhero satire for the foreseeable future, and almost certainly, a fifth season. The confirmation puts fan fears to rest that Season 4 would be the last of the dark superhero drama, following some recent confusion in a social media post shared on Kripke’s Twitter.
In a recent tweet shared by Kripke, the showrunner appeared to allude to the idea that the fourth season would be the last, after adding a hashtag for Season 4 Finale into the post. This led to questions on social media that the series would end, perhaps sooner than expected, after airing on Amazon Prime in 2019.
Kripke, who has a healthy track record of keeping shows on the air, including the likes of Supernatural, Revolution, and Timeless, confirmed that they had been shooting the fourth season since August, and he would be involved in directing the season’s finale.
Cause you're asking! We've been shooting since late August. I'm here to prep & direct the Season 4 finale. No, not the series finale, there will be more! Most importantly, S4 premieres… at some point in the future in our discernible reality. @PrimeVideo @SPTV https://t.co/UgNBPZKlCT

“No, not the series finale, there will be more! Most importantly, S4 premieres… at some point in the future in our discernible reality,” the post reads. The fourth season has yet to receive a release date, but sometime in late 2023 would be our best bet.
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, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Giancarlo Esposito. All three seasons are available to watch now on Amazon Prime.
The Boys universe is set to expand with the upcoming spin-off Gen V.
