the boys spoilers follow.
the boys Season 4 is starting production, meaning reveals, confirmations, and teasing should come thick and fast.
One thing we already have is confirmation that supernatural star Jensen Ackles returns for the upcoming season.
The actor responded to an Instagram post Karl Urban posted, in which he and Jack Quaid are eager to go. “Give me a double…” Ackles wrote. “I’m on my way.”

Ackles was introduced in Season 3 as Soldier Boy, a dark twist on Captain America who, among other things, rapped on Blondie and killed people during live webcam sex sessions. He was quite memorable and it’s good to hear we’ll be getting more of that.
Indeed, we’ve gotten a bit more from Soldier Boy this past week, after Ackles revealed that they shot WAY more footage than the fake promo that was scene earlier. At the request of fans, a longer scene showed us the history of Soldier Boy.
One thing we don’t know about season 4 is if it will be the last season. We dropped things when we learned that Billy Butcher has only months to live and that his brain has turned into mashed potatoes (or Swiss cheese, as he puts it) thanks to his use of Compound V.
Since Billy is the main character of the show, even if Homelander is the poster boy, we wonder if the show can or should go on without him. Sure, they can find a way to keep him from dying, but right now we just don’t know where it’s going.
While we speculate on what might happen, who do you think will be the one who will eventually kill Homelander?
the boys seasons 1-3 are streaming Amazon Prime video.
