THE BOYS: SEASON 4 is premiering on Prime Video. As wild and crazy as ever. But also eerily familiar and bleak with lots of real-life references. Read our Season 4 review of The Boys here!

THE BOYS: SEASON 4 premieres on Prime Video with the first three (out of eight) episodes. If you’ve been a fan of the series so far, you should be very happy with this latest season.

Also, it’s a good idea to have watched the spin-off Gen V to follow everything that happens. Not necessary but highly recommended. As always, you can expect this latest season to be bloody, violent, way over-the-top, and full of surprises. Oh yeah, wilder than ever!

Well, that escalated quickly!

With season 4 of The Boys, we’re in a world that is on the brink of total chaos. Supes (people with superhero powers) are divided into those who want to co-exist with “regular” human beings and those who want to dominate.

Somewhere in the middle – but definitely wanting to be in power – we find Victoria Neuman. As the Vice President-elect, she is so close to getting to the Oval Office.

However, she is also being forced again and again by Homelander consolidating his power. As always with Homelander (continuously portrayed brilliantly by Antony Starr), things escalate extremely fast. He changes his mind and acts impulsively all the time!

It’s terrifying but also makes for a story that constantly surprises. And, yes, very often shocks. The “Do Not Reveal” spoilers listed for each episode [they come with the screeners we receive to write this review] are long. And you have a lot of shockers in store!

Those battling Homelander

On the other side of the battle, we see Butcher (Karl Urban), who has damaged himself quite a lot by taking V to get temporary superpowers in season 3. He now has a massive brain tumor and only months to live. Within that time, he wants to set things right.

His promise to protect Becca’s son, Ryan, has gone to hell as Ryan is now with Homelander (his biological father). Also, he is no longer the leader of “The Boys”. For the record, this group includes the girls Kimiko and Starlight as well. Two powerful Supes!

Mother’s Milk is now the leader, but he is also struggling with many personal issues. Including the stepdad of his daughter being the biggest Homelander fan. Yikes! Still, the entire team of The Boys must find a way to work together if they want to save the world.

Art imitating life

In The Boys Season 4, you’ll hear lines spoken that are direct quotes of real-life politicians. Not just once or twice, but several times and in ways that highlight just how crazy they sound.

Now, the whole “art imitating life”-element has always been a key element to The Boys. Still, it’s taken to a whole new level with season 4.

In fact, the season finale takes place on January 6. A date that lives in infamy now and with The Boys, you’ll see art imitating reality in the most terrifying ways. Obviously, this also makes for many bleak and brutal moments that hit very close to home.

This is not a feel-good show, but it reminds everyone to fight for what you believe in. Or, at the very least, not just go along with something you know in your heart or gut is wrong.

Start watching The Boys Season 4 on Prime Video!

The Boys is – at its core – about a group of vigilantes called “The Boys” who want to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought. The latter is, of course, the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages superheroes. And has a lot of dirty (often bloody) secrets.

It is the battle of David and Goliath. The seemingly powerless against the super-powerful, but after three seasons, you won’t be surprised to see in Season 4 that it isn’t that simple. Also, Vought and The Seven love to paint themselves as powerless and innocent.

All while talking about “Jewish Space Lasers” and claiming that those who oppose them are cannibals eating and killing innocent children. There’s a very strong “Pizzagate” reference in an episode as well.

The Boys is based on The New York Times’ best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who also serve as executive producers. The Amazon Prime Video series was developed by executive producer and showrunner Eric Kripke.

Season 4 of The Boys premieres with three episodes and this should be plenty to get you hooked all over again. Actually, one episode is plenty, but I’m happy we’re getting three to get back into this world. The eighth and final episode of the season comes July 18, 2024.

The Boys will end with Season 5

When season 4 ends, you will surely be longing for news about season 5. Well, fortunately, The Boys season 5 has already been greenlit ahead of the season 4 premiere.

However, we also know that season 5 of The Boys will be the final season. With all that happens in season 4 (including all the gorgeous cameos and real-life references), I am very happy we’re getting another season.

Also, as bleak and terrible as everything has always been in the world of Supes in The Boys, it seems like a fifth season is a good place to wrap it all up. Series creator and season 4 showrunner Erik Kripke has stated that season 5 will be the last season of The Boys.

The Boys season 4 premieres on Prime Video on June 13, 2024.

The world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power. Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son as well as his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
