The boys received an early renewal for Season 5 last month ahead of this month’s Season 4 release.

In 2020, Kripke told fans that his “rough idea” for The boys was “five seasons in total”, acknowledging at the time, “But I also know better than to say how many seasons a series will have.” Kripke’s Last Show Supernatural lasted 15 seasons.

In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, Kripke did not speculate on the number of seasons The boys would go, but said he had “an end in mind.”

The boys Season 4 premieres June 13 on Prime Video.
