Amazon Prime Video’s explosive superhero drama ‘The Boys’ has been renewed for a fourth season.
The Boys has been renewed for a fourth season. Prime Video has announced an early renewal following the premiere of its third season. Season 3 debuted on Prime Video on June 3.
This early renewal came as no surprise as the show has witnessed tremendous growth in its worldwide viewership. Season 3 premiere (3 episodes) drew a significant worldwide audience over the first three days of streaming. The viewership is up by 17% from Season 2 and by 234% from Season 1.
“We’re thrilled to continue Butcher and the Boys’ fight against Homelander and the Seven, as well as comment on the insane world we’re living in. Also, this is the first time in history that exploding genitalia has led to further success,” says showrunner Eric Kripke in a press release.
Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, said, “From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about season three of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder—an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season.“
“The Boys continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real,” Sanders continues. “This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that. We are immensely proud of the cast and crew that has spawned a franchise for Prime Video, and we look forward to bringing more of The Boys to our customers.”
What ‘The Boys’ is about?
The dark action series follows the titular characters (The Boys) looking to bring down The Seven, an elite team of superhumans controlled by the corporation Vought International. The Boys are led by Billy Butcher, who hates all superpowered people, and the Seven are led by the egocentric and violent Homelander.
The Boys Season 3 is now streaming on Prime Video. The new season premiered on June 2 with three episodes dropped at once. Now, the show will follow a weekly schedule with new episodes available each Friday, leading up to the season finale on July 8.
