Media outlets are reporting that Amazon have renewed superhero drama series The Boys for a fourth season.
The official synopsis for the third season is as follows:
It’s been a year of calm. Homelander’s subdued. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious Anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into the Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy.
While Amazon does not release ratings information for its Prime Video shows, they have shared data on the growth in viewers for the first three episodes of each season over their first three days of release. Over the first three days since Season 3’s debut (3rd June), the worldwide viewership for The Boys has grown by +17% from season two, and by +234% from season one.
Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, released a statement saying:
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. This stylised world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that.
The third season stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Nathan Mitchell, Claudia Doumit, Colby Minifie, Jensen Ackles, Katia Winter, Laurie Holden, Sean Patrick Flanery, Miles Gaston Villanueva, Nick Wechsler, Frances Turner, Kristin Booth and Jack Doolan.
