🖕🏻Today we start work on season 4. This photo is from the first day The Boys were all on set as a team during season 1. I feel so lucky and grateful that I get to start this journey all over again with my @TheBoysTV family. Let’s do this!!!! #TheBoys #Season4— Jack Quaid (@JackQuaid92) August 22, 2022
At the end of season 3, Homelander seemed unstoppable as he introduced the world to his super-powered son Ryan and was cheered by the crowd for killing a protester who called him a facist.
Look at Ryan’s slow evil smile at the crowd reaction.
Much of season 4 is a battle for Ryan’s soul.
If Ryan turns into another little sociopathic Homelander, that’s apocalyptic. But on the other hand, if [Billy] Butcher’s able to pull him away from that, then you might have the only person who can actually fight Homelander. – showrunner Eric Kripke told TVLine.
What of season 3’s secret weapon — Jensen Ackles’s Soldier Boy? He was conflicted after learning that Homelander was his biological son but turned on him for being a wimp and purposefully struck his grandson Ryan in a climatic battle.
A danger to everyone, Soldier Boy was put back in a cryochamber, this time in CIA custody.
The Vigilantes survived to fight another season but with leader Billy Butcher maybe dying from all those doses of Compound V24 he took to gain temporary superpowers.
The Boys have their work cut out for them in season 4 but showrunner Eric Kripke vows he will not let Homelander win in the end
