‘The Boys’ Returns June 13: Everything to Know About Season 4

‘The Boys’ Returns June 13: Everything to Know About Season 4

After two years of waiting, fans will return to the irreverent, violent and action-packed world of corrupt superheroes. The Boys Season 4 premieres on Thursday, June 13 at 3 a.m. ET on Prime Video. 

The Emmy-winning show is based on the New York Times best-selling comic series by Garth Ennis and Darick Roberston with the same name. The Amazon original plays out in a world where superheroes, known as supes, are widespread and living among regular people. Instead of using their powers for good, the supes use their power for dark, self-serving purposes. The series centers around a team of vigilantes called The Boys who are looking to take down the group of most famous and most corrupt supes called The Seven.

Caution: Spoilers ahead. 

Things are looking bleak as we return to The Boys universe for Season 4. Victoria Neuman is gaining political power as she campaigns to be vice president. Homelander is also looking to solidify his power and has been reunited with his son, Ryan, the first natural-born supe. Butcher only has months to live after he took Temp V, which allowed him to gain superpowers for 24 hours, so he could fight Homelander and Vought directly. Butcher has now lost the trust of his team and his job as The Boys’ leader. The Boys must find a way to work together again to save the world.  

Check out the trailer below. 


Season 4 of The Boys returns on June 13, 2024, with a three-episode premiere. New episodes will be released weekly on Thursdays until the season finale on July 18. Catch up or rewatch the first three seasons of The Boys now on Prime Video with DIRECTV.
