While we’re all still recovering from the wild third season of Prime Video’s The Boys, which premiered in June, casting news for the impending fourth season has been announced.
Following his continued role in season 3, Cameron Crovetti — who portrays Homelander and Becca’s Supe-powered son Ryan — has been promoted to a series regular. Meanwhile, Susan Heyward (Orange Is the New Black) has been cast as Sister Sage, and Valorie Curry (The Tick) joins as Firecracker.
Based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, Eric Kripke’s 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 Boys also 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, and Claudia Doumit.
The show was recently renewed for a fourth season. In addition to the live-action series, an animated anthology series — The Boys Presents: Diabolical — was released earlier this year. Gen V, a spin-off series set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes, is currently in production.
