Superhero properties may not be doing so hot right now, with Shazam! 2 doing dismal numbers and Quantumania receiving middling reviews. However, one comic book property is still managing to keep things fresh with Amazon’s The Boys.
Just in, Karl Urban (Billy Butcher) has announced a wrap on the fourth season, and he shares a photo of himself with new cast member Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead, Watchmen). Check this out:

We don’t have any details on who Morgan is playing in the series yet, but with him wearing a suit and tie, I can assume he could either be someone working for Vought, or a government agent who directly handles Butcher and his boys.
With Morgan’s status in pop-culture as the Comedian and Negan, I’m sure The Boys will have something wild for him to do, since the series is also pretty meta in nature.
It’s unclear what plot thread Season 4 will want to pull, but we know that Butcher is now terminally ill, thanks to his use of the Temporary V. It’s also been teased that Homelander’s son (also Butcher’s adapted son), is now embracing his superhero persona, and he could very much be a new Homelander in the making. Hopefully Butcher and his team will manage to find a stop to that.
No release date has been set for the fourth season of The Boys, but hopefully we’ll get the premiere sometime later this year. In the meantime, you can check out the first three seasons on Amazon Prime Video.
