The Boys is rapidly becoming one of Prime Video’s most popular original series, and it looks like the gang will return after season 3. That’s right, Amazon has officially greenlit The Boys Season 4 for Prime Video. And cast members like Karl Urban and Jack Quaid celebrated the news by taking selfies, which were shared on the show’s Twitter.

‘The Boys’ Season 4 officially confirmed for Prime Video

The Boys reached the halfway point of its third season on June 10, and Amazon dropped some exciting news the same day. The company confirmed that The Boys has been renewed for season 4. That means Billy Butcher and his teammates will continue taking on the Supes in another batch of episodes.

In the press release announcing the big news, Amazon revealed that the show has seen a 17% uptick in viewership since season 2. Additionally, it’s witnessed a whopping 234% increase since its first outing.

Vernon Sanders, who serves as head of global television at Amazon Studios, expressed excitement at the prospect of expanding the franchise:

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.”

Sanders isn’t the only one celebrating a fourth outing, either. The cast seems equally as pumped to reprise their roles. Several of them even took selfies to mark the occasion.

After The Boys Season 4 received the official green light from Amazon, the show’s Twitter shared a post to celebrate. It shows the series’ main cast celebrating the announcement by holding up four fingers each. Among the actors featured are Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Jessie Usher, and Claudia Doumit.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to have them return to the small screen, especially with The Boys Season 3 ramping up the stakes. It’s hard to imagine how they’ll outdo themselves in a fourth chapter. But we know they’ll find a way. And they have plenty of places to draw inspiration from — including the comics and the real world.

Season 4 of the Prime Video series has plenty of material to work with

Those wondering where The Boys will take things in season 4 can rest knowing there’s plenty of material to work with. For one, there’s more of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic series left to cover. The comics alone offer a well of ideas for future storylines. However, it is worth noting that Karl Urban told NME the series will likely go in a “different” direction.

“I think that [showrunner] Eric Kripke has a very definitive story in his mind, and I don’t think that he has any intention of outstaying his welcome,” Urban said. “I just know that Kripke is not a fan of how the comics ended. So whatever we do will be different, for sure. We shall see.”

Of course, The Boys also takes inspiration from the real world — and there’s no shortage of news to satirize. Wherever the show goes in the future, fans will no doubt continue tuning in. In the meantime, they can enjoy season 3, which is streaming on Prime Video.
