The Boys have been renewed for Season 5, ahead of the series’ Season 4 premiere on Amazon Prime Video. Amazon revealed that the series would return in June this year, accompanied by new stills of Antony Starr’s Homelander celebrating.

Showrunner Eric Kripke expressed his excitement about the renewal, assuring fans that “’The Boys’ could be the best job I’ll ever have. What other show allows me to write about politics, capitalism, family, and exploding genitalia, though not in that order.” And the series has a surprisingly unique predicament, with Kripke going on to say “my only problem is that since this year promises to be free of any conflict or misinformation, we’re not sure what to write about.”

The series’ upcoming season promises higher stakes and plenty of Homelander appearances, and a trailer was previously released. The synopsis for the new season reads:

“In Season Four, the world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power. Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son and his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late.”

The Boys Season 4 will release on Amazon Prime Video on 13 June 2024.
