The Boys Season 4: When will it release on Amazon Prime?
Amazon Prime has not yet confirmed the precise release date of The Boys Season 4. On the bright side, it appears that the show’s early renewal will result in the timely scheduling and production of the forthcoming season. Additionally, Karl Urban, who plays Butcher, suggested production on the show will get underway earlier this summer.
According to Collider, he stated, “We’re starting I think August 22, we’re going to be starting season four. So I’m getting back, getting my Butcher back on, and I can’t wait. It’s a fun gang to play with, we work hard and play hard, and I can’t wait to see where they take the characters from where we leave them at the end of this season.”
However, based on the pattern of the prior seasons we may anticipate that the premiere date for the fourth season will be in the next year. We’d estimate that the release date would be sometime in the fall of 2023 – probably sometime in or around the month of June or September. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that at this point, everything is just conjecture. Fans should thus be patient because the network will confirm these facts in the upcoming months, so they should keep a watch on it.
Over the first three days since Season 3’s June 3 debut, the worldwide viewership for The Boys has grown by +17% from season two, and +234% from season one, Prime Video said. According to Deadline, “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,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios. “This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that.”
“There’s ideas beyond the shows that we have. We want to pace ourselves,” Sanders said. “The launch of the show this season so far has really blown us away, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard about more but for the time being, we are focused on this next show and making sure that it lives up to everything it needs to be, and so far, we are on track.”
The Boys Season 4 Plot
Speaking to Variety, Kripke teased that they’ll be going after Neuman while Butcher only has months left to live. “They’re up against the DeSantis ticket,” the creator said. “That’s part of the fun of getting into Season 4, which we’re just figuring out for this, but he’s got a crazy ticking clock. He’s got so much to do that he hasn’t done.” The showrunner added about Butcher’s trajectory: “What we find fascinating about the question we’re asking about Butcher is, is he self-aware enough to realize that he’s causing his own misfortune? Is he self-aware enough to actually see if he can change? Those are some of the interesting conversations we’re starting to have for Season 4.”
On the other hand, asking about the storyline to IGN, Kripke teased where it could go next. “If allowed to raise Ryan, he will raise Ryan to be a second Homelander, which will have apocalyptic stakes. If he stays in that environment, he’s on his way to becoming another Homelander,” Kripke said. “And so I think it’s a hint at what one of the major conflicts in season four will be, which is Butcher and Homelander having this battle over Ryan.”
