Amazon Studios announced that their acclaimed action series ‘The Boys’ is getting a fourth season when they announced in a PR statement that the show had been renewed with an additional eight episodes.
“Prime Video today announced it has officially ordered a fourth season of its hit Emmy-nominated series The Boys, co-produced with Sony Pictures Television, following the explosive premiere of its third season. The Boys released the first three episodes of Season Three on Friday, June 3 with new episodes available each Friday, leading up to the epic season finale on July 8,” they said.
“The Boys franchise also now includes an eight-episode anthology animated series, The Boys Presents: Diabolical, now streaming on Prime Video, as well as the Untitled Boys Spinoff, set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes, which is currently in production,” Amazon added.
As reported by D-Rezzed, the third season’s cast includes stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Jensen Ackles.
‘The Boys’ franchise is continuing to expand as more projects are being announced. Amazon recently discussed ‘The Boys Presents: Varsity,’ a spin-off about a group of young superheroes who are in training.
Amazon Studios describes the synopsis as follows,
“The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes—who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods—abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought—the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It’s the seemingly powerless against the super-powerful.”
The television show is based on a comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It is developed by executive producer and showrunner Eric Kripke for Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios.
