The Boys season 5 is set to bring more insanity, as hinted by series creator and showrunner Eric Kripke. Fans impatiently await the release of season 4 this June; however, news about its renewal for season 5 has already created a buzz. During Amazon’s first-ever upfront event earlier this month, it was assured that the show will continue, even though its new release date is yet to be announced.

Kripke provided more information about the early stage development of The Boys season 5. However, he admitted that The Boys season 5 is in the writers’ room and is only one month old but also revealed that some exciting details had been discussed. Fans of the show are thrilled by this update await the extraordinary and surprising storylines in the future.

Despite Kripke's original plan being a five season run for the show, its tremendous popularity and devoted following have sparked speculation about what might happen beyond the fifth season. As Gen V and other future spin-offs like The Boys: Mexico expand on its universe, The Boys shows every indication to remain a major player within superhero satire.

What is the new update on The Boys season 5?

As revealed by showrunner Eric Kripke, work on The Boys season 5 is currently underway with writers hard at work. Though still in the very initial stages of development, this confirmation alone has fans talking. Kripke’s comment regarding "crazy" things being talked about serves as an indicator of how wild and unbounded creativity could become a definitive trait for this series.

Amazon officially renewed The Boys for a fifth installment during their Upfront event but hasn’t shared when it will hit screens. Based on production schedules from prior seasons we can expect that The Boys season 5 may premiere in either 2025 or 2026. Further details and hints are bound to arise as a new writing staff crafts out next season's episodes.

While speaking to Screenrant about The Boys season 5 Eric Kripke said,

"Even I don't. I mean, we're about a month into the writers room right now, so we have some pretty cool notions. It's a very raw lava-esque deal right now. It hasn't hardened into anything, but I'm excited. I think there's some crazy sh-t's been talked about, that's for sure."

Exploring details of The Boys season 4 trailer

The Boys season 4 is coming out next month and the first trailer which was just released has already created a buzz with the news that Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be joining the cast. The trailer is packed with intense scenes even as it cleverly withholds the full plot of the upcoming season. One such revelation is that William Butcher is dying from an incurable illness and would like Homelander dead as his final wish.

This time around, he seems to have found a way out of the Supe-killing contagion introduced by Gen V. Moreover, the aftermath of Gen V including Cate Dunlap and Sam is also teased in the trailer. Other important aspects highlighted in it include more dangerousness caused by Supes, scenes featuring Compound V-injected farm animals running amok, while Morgan’s character might be an agent trying to get Butcher’s support from Feds. This new season promises to be an even more exciting one than ever before.

When is The Boys season 4 coming out?

The Boys season 4 is slated to start on Prime Video with its first three episodes on Thursday, June 13, 2024. This follows a two-year gap since the release of season 3 in June 2022. The rest of the episodes will be aired weekly until the end of the season on July 18, 2024.

The season 4 teaser trailer, which dropped online after premiering at CCXP’s edition last year has already created excitement. Released on May 3, 2024, the full trailer shows that this tension that has been building up all along will lead to some intense confrontations. Furthermore, Homelander is seen spinning further out of control ahead of an election in what appears to be a politically driven storyline.
