For all The Boys fans, you might have to wait a bit more for The Boys Season 4 due to the WGA (Writers Guild of America) strike going on. The unfortunate strike has affected a few other series as well, like Mayor of Kingstown Season 3 and Yellowstone Season 5. We can just hope for the matters to settle down soon so we can have all our favorite series aired soon.
Eric Kripke took to Twitter to make things clear for the fans and explained why The Boys Season 4 release date cannot be expected any time soon.
Exactly. There's a good amount of dialogue we write in post that the actors come back to record (called ADR), to help bridge story gaps or clarify a plot point. We'll also edit dialogue together in different ways to 'rewrite' it. Writing at every stage of the process. #WGAStrong https://t.co/K3MbGqAajy— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) June 29, 2023
The Boys fans do not have to feel disheartened as the makers did come up with a spin-off titled Gen V, which is based on the comic book story of The Boys. You can enjoy the spin-off on Amazon Prime Video till an official release date for season 4 of The Boys is announced. Apart from some new additions to The Boys cast, we have some other information on the series, so let’s dive deep and unravel the suspense surrounding the series.
The Boys Season 4 Release Date: When Season 4 is Coming Out?
Since the production process is still on hold, no official release date for The Boys Season 4 has been announced yet. With a lot of speculations surrounding the series, Kripke made it clear that season 4 is sure to happen, and the release depends on how long the strike will last, as there is a lot of post-production involved.
#TheBoys update! 1) When #Season4 drops depends on how long the #WGA Strike goes. No answer yet. Tell the studios to make a fair deal!— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) June 28, 2023
2) To take that sting off, here's fun art from S4. We spend hours making ourselves laugh with this stuff & its never even on screen. #TheBoysTV pic.twitter.com/t9nSGmou8Z
The Boys Season 4 Plot: What Can We Expect?
Since Kripke confirmed that a lot of post-production is still left for The Boys S4, the makers have been tight-lipped about the plot, and fairly so. But the last season indicated what we can expect from the upcoming season. With a lot of unexpected revelations in Season 3 of The Boys we are sure the streak is going to follow.
Get ready to sympathize with the villains as their origin story might be revealed. During the promotion of another movie, Erin Moriarty revealed, “The characters that you thought would be villains, you start to learn a little bit more about them that perhaps makes you feel, not that they’re good guys, but that there are always gonna be details that you can never anticipate, that prevent you from putting that character in a box.”
We can expect to see more character development for Queen Maeve and more moments of Starlight with The Boys as the alliance is no longer a secret. The Boys are more determined than ever to take down the Supes but the challenge is not easy as the Supes now have the support from Victoria Neuman. It will be worth watching how Starlight can help The Boys in the mission.

Is the Boys Season 4 Finale Season?
There have been speculations if The Boys season 4 is going to be the end of the series but looks like The Boys gang is here to stay for quite a long. Fans can rejoice as Kripker confirmed that there is more to The Boys series beyond season 4. He took to Twitter to share the news and confirmed that Boys Season 4 won’t be the finale season.
Cause you're asking! We've been shooting since late August. I'm here to prep & direct the Season 4 finale. No, not the series finale, there will be more! Most importantly, S4 premieres… at some point in the future in our discernible reality. @PrimeVideo @SPTV https://t.co/UgNBPZKlCT— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) February 12, 2023
How Many Episodes Are There in The Boys Season 4?
