After just one week since the explosive return of The Boys when Season 3 premiered on Prime Video, a fourth season of the Emmy-nominated superhero series has been given the go-ahead.
Commenting on the popularity of the show, Prime Video confirmed that in just three days from Season 3 debuting last Friday, worldwide viewership for the show grew by +17% from season two, and a whopping +234% from season one.
Suited and booted with all the pitch black, lewd humor and Grand Guignol gore we’ve come to expect – and enjoy – from the series, season three finds Homelander subdued. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn the past year’s peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious Anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into the Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy.
Season Three of “The Boys” 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.
Two spin-off shows, “G-Men” and “The Boys Presents: Diabolical” were also ordered in September 2020 and December 2021, respectively, the latter of which is now available to stream on Prime Video in all its gory glory. And now, according to Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, there is an absolute possibility that the Diabolical series will get its own second season:
“We were excited when we launched. We thought there was a two-fold opportunity with Diabolical. One was to get The Boys fans excited about and get it out early. But we also wanted to see if there was another bite of the apple once the mothership show returned, and we are seeing real engagement and growth of the show there.
We’ve definitely had conversations with the producers about what the next installment would look like.”
In the meantime, enjoy the brand new 4th episode that releases today and we’ll leave you with Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Chace Crawford, Karen Fukuhara, Claudia Doumit & Jensen Ackles who spilled the beans on what kind of cozy feelings supes will be giving us in the coming weeks on Prime Video … including something they call a herogasm.
