The Boys Plot and Cast
No plot details have been confirmed yet for The Boys Season 4, but the Season 3 finale does give us a pretty good idea about what will happen next.
The Boys are now back together and more focused than ever on their plan to take down the Supes. However, it seems like their major enemy has shifted to Victoria Neuman. After making a deal with Homelander, she landed the Vice President ticket in the season finale thanks to The Deep drowning her opposition. This puts her in the running to become the most powerful Super ever, at least in the political sphere.
But they’ll have a bit of help this time around thanks to Starlight. After trying to change things from the inside, she’s now firmly on team Butcher as a fully-fledged member of the team. And he might need all the help he can get after he was left struggling to deal with the aftermath of Temp V. He’s been told he’s on borrowed time due to the impact of the drug on his body so Billy will be in danger in the new season.
We can expect to see Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Capone as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, Erin Moriarty as Starlight, and Karl Urban as Billy Butcher.
The Boys Season 4 Release Date
There’s no official release date for The Boys Season 4 yet. The show was only recommissioned in June 2022, with the Season 3 finale airing on July 8, 2022. We could likely be waiting a little while for new episodes.
One thing that seems likely is that ahead of Season 4, we’ll get to see The Boys spin-off show Varsity first. This was announced back in 2020 and will premiere on Prime Video in 2023.
