‘The Boys’ (2019-) Returns For A Fourth Season
The immensely popular Superhero-drama The Boys on Amazon Prime Video will return for a fourth season for Amazon.
It’s official. You can breathe out. It has happened before and it’s confirmed that Amazon has renewed The Boys for another season. Fourth season this time. It’s not a surprise. The third season has just premiered and with nice reviews and viewerships surged.
“From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of ‘The Boys,’ we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder — an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season,” Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios said in a statement accompanying the renewal news. “’The Boys’ continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that. We are immensely proud of the cast and crew that has spawned a franchise for Prime Video, and we look forward to bringing more of ‘The Boys’ to our customers.”
On top of that, the studio has also announced their first multi-franchise series The Boys: Diabolical, from Amazon. This spin-off will focus on a school for young superheroes.
Kripke has spoken out on the success:
“Speaking for the cast and crew, we’re so grateful to Sony, Amazon, and most of all the fans for embracing the show and allowing us to make more. We’re thrilled to continue Butcher and the Boys’ fight against Homelander and the Seven, as well as comment on the insane world we’re living in. Also, this is the first time in history that exploding genitalia has led to further success.”
Plot for season 3: “It’s been a year of calm. Homelander’s (Antony Starr) subdued. Butcher (Karl Urban) works for the government, supervised by Hughie (Jack Quaid) of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious anti-supe weapon, it sends them crashing into the Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first superhero: Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles).”
