The Boys Season 4 Receives Exciting Update Following Gen V Finale

Eric Kripke says The Boys Season 4 doesn't have a release date yet.

The Boys Season 4

The first season of Gen V has come to an end, bringing fans some really crazy superhero action. This live-action Prime Video series is closely related to The Boys, and fans have been excited to know how the two shows will connect in the future. In a recent interview with Variety, Eric Kripke, the showrunner for The Boys and Gen V, said that they've made many creative decisions for The Boys' upcoming fourth season, which also had an impact on the appearance of Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Homelander (Antony Starr) in Gen V. However, Kripke mentioned that there's no release date set for The Boys Season 4 at the moment.

"You will not know when "The Boys" Season 4 is airing by the time the "Gen V" finale airs. But most of the editing is done, we're now deep into the music and visual effects. Marketing is starting to taxi their planes on the runway. There's a lot happening behind the scenes of "The Boys" Season 4, I can say that," Kripke explained.

"For Butcher, by the time they were making the finale, we were pretty deep into breaking Season 4. We knew that we wanted that virus to be a pretty big part of Season 4, and we knew that we wanted Butcher to be aware of it. It seems crazy that he wouldn't be aware of it. It became kind of tricky, because how do we show that he knows about it without it just being dialogue? This idea came up that it probably shouldn't even happen in "The Boys," it should happen in "Gen V." The value of having the [two shows' writers] rooms be in coordination is, our room took it to Michele and her room and said, 'Can we put Butcher in the end, so we can show that he's really hot on the tail of the virus?' It was really cool, because it does a nice little preamble to what's coming next. And Karl and Ant both were willing to come in on their days off to go work on the other show. But the Homelander part was Michele's team," Kripke said of the cameos.

What Is Gen V About?

Gen V is a spinoff of The Boys, a popular series on Prime Video that's based on Dynamite Comics. This new show is set in Godolkin University, which was originally a funny take on Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters from Marvel's X-Men comics. It's like "Hunger Games" but in a college setting, where young superpowered individuals are doing their best to join Vought's super teams, including The Seven. The folks who used to run Marvel's Agent Carter, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, are in charge of this series. They're getting help from Eric Kripke, who's the showrunner for The Boys, and Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg.

The main actors in Gen V include Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, and Lizze Broadway. Plus, you'll see some familiar faces from The Boys, like Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, Colby Minifie as Vought's Ashley Barrett, and P.J. Byrne as director Adam Bourke.
