The Boys will be back for more. Season three of the Prime Video series kicked off last week. The streaming service has now ordered a fourth season which is expected to be released in 2023.
A dark superhero series, The Boys TV show stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Jensen Ackles. The story unfolds in a world in which superheroes are more idolized than celebrities, and some of them are abusing their superpowers. After Hughie Campbell’s (Quaid) love becomes collateral damage to one of the Supes of The Seven, he teams up with Billy Butcher (Urban) and his gang of vigilantes called The Boys. Now they’re out to expose the truth about superheroes, and about Vought — the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that both manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets.

About The Boys
The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought – the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It’s the seemingly powerless against the super-powerful.
