Eric Kripke Confirms Amazon Series ‘The Boys’ to Conclude with Fifth Season

Season 4 kicks off on June 14th while season five will be the show's final season.



Eric Kripke, the showrunner and creator of the hit Amazon Prime Video series “The Boys,” has officially announced that the show will conclude with its fifth season. Kripke shared the news on Tuesday via X (formerly Twitter), just ahead of the Season 4 premiere on June 13. In his post, he included a redacted screenshot of the script for the upcoming season’s finale, stating, “Season 5 will be the Final Season! Always my plan, I just had to be cagey till I got the final OK from Vought.”

Kripke’s announcement puts an end to speculation about the series’ future, which intensified after Amazon renewed “The Boys” for a fifth season shortly before the promotional tour for Season 4. Earlier in June, Kripke hinted in interviews that the series might extend beyond five seasons, but the recent script reveal confirms the plan for a definitive conclusion. And while the main show in the VCU is wrapping up, a handful of other spin-offs will carry on, including Gen V and an upcoming series tentatively titled ‘The Boys: Mexico‘ is in the works from BlueBeetle writer, Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer with Star Wars: Andor actor Diego Luna attached.

The Boys, which premiered in 2019, is set in a world dominated by the powerful superhero corporation Vought. The series follows the intense conflict between the superpowered “supes” and “The Boys,” a group of human civilians whose lives have been severely impacted by the supes. The star-studded cast includes Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Cameron Crovetti.

Season 4 of “The Boys” is set to premiere on June 13 with three initial episodes, followed by weekly releases. The official synopsis reveals that Victoria Neuman is getting closer to the Oval Office under Homelander’s influence, while Butcher and his team face higher stakes in their mission to save the world.
