The boys spoilers follow.
The boys Season 4 begins production, which means the reveals, confirmations, and teases should be coming fast and well.
One thing we already have is confirmation that Supernatural Star Jensen Ackles returns for the upcoming season.
The actor commented on an Instagram post that Karl Urban made that he and Jack Quaid can’t wait to get going. “Pour me a double…” Ackles wrote. “I am on my way.”

Ackles was introduced in Season 3 as Soldier Boy, a dark version of Captain America who rapped about Blondie and murdered people in live webcam sex sessions, among other things. It was quite memorable, and it’s good to hear that we’ll have more of it.
We actually got a little more Soldier Boy last week, after Ackles revealed that they had shot MUCH more footage than the fake promo that was previously on stage. Due to fan request, a longer scene showed us the story 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 only has months to live and his brain has been turned into mashed potatoes (or Swiss cheese, as he puts it) thanks to his use of Compound V. .
Since Billy is the show’s main character, even though Homelander stars, one wonders if the show could or even should continue without him. Sure, they might find a way to keep him from dying, but right now we just don’t know where things will go.
While we speculate on what might happen, who do you think will be the one to ultimately kill Homelander?
The boys seasons 1-3 are streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
