The Boys

Why ‘The Boys’ is wrapping up with season 5

You can stream The Boys season 4 from June 13 on Prime Video.

Buckle up, fans of The Boys! The wild ride of our favourite anti-superhero series is coming to a close. Eric Kripke, the mastermind behind the show, has officially announced that Season 5 will be the grand finale.

Just before the highly anticipated premiere of Season 4 on 13 June on Prime Video, Kripke took to social media, teasing fans with a final script page that cheekily read, “SEE YOU FOR OUR FINAL SEASON, MOTHERF***ERS!”

Why are The Boys calling it quits now?

Kripke has always had a clear vision for the series’ endpoint.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he shared, “From the very beginning, I wanted to wrap it out around season five. And then I would say plans really solidified that we were going to actually do it years ago.”

For Kripke, five seasons felt like the perfect length to tell the complex story of The Boys.

He added, “It might have been because I was trained as a TV writer and there were five acts. It gives you enough time to get to know the characters… It’s about the characters and then you kick off into a climax.”

The future of The Boys universe

Though The Boys is ending, its universe is far from over.

Kripke revealed that spinoff shows like Gen V and the animated anthology Diabolical will keep the spirit of The Boys alive. He expressed his hopes for the franchise, saying, “Look, I love this universe and this is the best job I’ve ever had; so, hopefully Gen V will continue.”

Even with media companies tightening their budgets, The Boys remains a flagship series for Amazon, which gives it a certain level of freedom.

Kripke noted, “We get a level of freedom that it’ll be hard to repeat anywhere. That said, we have budget battles. But, ultimately, we figure out a way.”

What’s next in Season 4?

As we gear up for Season 4, which premieres on 13 June on Prime Video, the stakes are higher than ever.

Victoria Neuman is inching closer to the Oval Office, with Homelander tightening his grip on power. Butcher, on borrowed time, must rally his fractured team to save the world.

The series continues to offer a fresh and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes abuse their powers. Intent on stopping the corrupt ‘supes’, The Boys expose the dark secrets of The Seven and the Vought conglomerate that manages them.

Season 4 is shaping up to be one hell of a ride, and we can’t wait to see how the saga unfolds. So, make sure to catch it on Prime Video and prepare for one last epic showdown in Season 5.
