Get ready for more violence, insane shenanigans and plenty of NSFW content as The Boys is coming back for another season.
Following its blockbuster third season premiere, Prime Video has renewed the Emmy-nominated series for a fourth season.
The first three episodes of Season 3 launched on Friday, June 3, and the worldwide audience for The Boys increased by 17% from Season 2 and 234% from Season 1 in the first three days. New episodes drop Fridays through July 8.
“From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder—an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, in a statement. “The Boys continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that.”
The Boys franchise now includes an eight-episode anthology cartoon series, The Boys Presents: Diabolical, and the untitled Boys spinoff, presently in production and set at America’s only college solely for young-adult superheroes.
“Speaking for the cast and crew, we’re so grateful to Sony, Amazon, and most of all the fans for embracing the show and allowing us to make more,” said Kripke, The Boys showrunner. “We’re thrilled to continue Butcher and the Boys’ fight against Homelander and the Seven, as well as comment on the insane world we’re living in. Also, this is the first time in history that exploding genitalia has led to further success.”
