The Boys Season 4 Release Date: When will it premiere on Prime Video?
After being renewed for a fourth season, which was approved more than a year ago on June 10, 2022! Sadly, the network has not officially confirmed the exact release date of the next season, despite the filming for the fourth season being wrapped earlier this year, on April 12, 2023. But if you recall, back on June 28, 2023, Eric Kripke tweeted that they were holding the release of the new season until the ongoing WGA strike was resolved.
Due to this, we are not certain when the new season will premiere, but many reports have also hinted that the fourth season of The Boys is rumored to premiere this month on September 29, 2023, concurrently with the upcoming superhero series, which is developed by Craig Rosenberg, Evan Goldberg, and Eric Kripke, serving as a spin-off of The Boys by Kripke and based on The Boys comic book story arc “We Gotta Go Now” by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, simply titled “Gen V.”
As a result, we are hopeful that the release date might be accurate and that the series will eventually be released this year. But sadly, for the time being, there has been no official confirmation; hence, we’ll just have to wait and see what new updates about the official premiere date will be provided in the coming days. On the bright side, one thing is certain: the spin-off series, “Gen V,” will take place between Season 3 and 4 of The Boys.

The Boys Season 4 Plot: What to expect from the new season?
If you have streamed the show, then you’ll know that The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven”, and their formidable Vought backing.
As a result, the upcoming fourth season of the superhero television series The Boys is the first series in the franchise and is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It was developed for television by American writer and television producer Eric Kripke. However, this gives a bit of a hint about the next season’s theme and character arcs. Unfortunately, nothing much has been confirmed about the potential plotlines for the fourth season. In order to avoid major spoilers this early on, previously Vernon Sanders stated:
“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 a positive note, the fourth season is expected to begin by figuring out a way to save Ryan’s soul, which is a key priority for Butcher in season 4, with Kripke saying it’s like Kramer v. Kramer combined with Avengers: Endgame. Furthermore, the other priorities of the Boys are to take down Victoria Neuman, who advanced her political career after being picked by US President Candidate Robert Singer, and find some way to kill Homelander once and for all. As stated above, Eric Kripke also said that Gen V would tie into the events of Season 3 and that things would feed into Season 4.
The next season is also expected to pick up right from the third season’s finale episode, “The Instant White-Hot Wild,” which is directed by Sarah Boyd and written by Logan Ritchey & David Reed. In the episode, the viewers got to see that, “Calling all patriots! Let’s show Homelander we’ve got his back and we’re not going to let Starlight and her Starlight House of Horrors get away with trafficking children and drinking their adrenaline! It’s time for real Americans to fight back! Join the Hometeamers and Stormchasers tomorrow at Vought Square! Stand back and stand by!”
The Boys Season 4 Cast: Who will reprise their roles?

“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,” said Eric Kripke, The Boys showrunner. “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.”
“The Boys producers and cast have proven year after year that there is no bar they can’t jump over,” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures Television, and Jason Clodfelter, co-president of Sony Pictures Television. “We are incredibly proud of this brilliant and subversive genre-bending series. Our relationship with Prime Video is much more than a partnership, it’s more like an extended family. Everyone here at Sony Pictures Television is thankful to join Prime Video and Eric Kripke for another successful season.”
