"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."

What is the rumoured release date for season 4?

There has been no confirmed release date as of yet, with season 3 just wrapping on 8 July.

Season 3 took 21-months to drop, due to delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, so it’s expected season 4 will have a quicker turnaround.

With Soldier Boy put on Ice, Homelander (Antony Starr) has no one left to rein him in and grows even more unhinged.

His growing popularity in the far right movement and the company of his son Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) has only emboldened him further.

We can expect The Boys however to be more united, with Starlight (Erin Moriarty) joining the group after leaving the Seven.

Along with Hughie (Jack Quaid), Butcher (Karl Urban), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Kapon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) they are more focused than ever.
