Amazon’s “The Boys” Will End After Season 5, Confirms Showrunner!

Showrunner Eric Kripke has officially announced that “The Boys” will wrap up with its fifth season. As fans gear up for the premiere of Season 4, Kripke revealed on X (formerly Twitter) that the gritty, R-rated superhero series on Amazon Prime Video will reach its grand finale in the next season.

“#TheBoys Season 4 Premiere Week is a good time to announce: Season 5 will be the Final Season!” Kripke shared, along with a redacted screenshot of the Season 4 finale script. He added, “Always my plan, I just had to be cagey till I got the final OK from Vought. Thrilled to bring the story to a gory, epic, moist climax. Watch Season 4 in 2 DAYS, cause the end has begun!”

“The Boys” debuted in 2019 and quickly made a mark with its dark, satirical take on the superhero genre. Set in a world dominated by the superhero corporation Vought, the series follows the clash between the corrupt supes and a group of vigilantes known as “The Boys,” who seek to bring them down.

The show features an ensemble cast including 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 will also introduce Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the second “Supernatural” alum to join the series following Jensen Ackles’ role as Soldier Boy in Season 3.

The Emmy-winning drama is a collaboration between Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios, with production companies Kripke Enterprises, Original Film, and Point Grey Pictures.

Executive producers include Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Phil Sgriccia, Michaela Starr, Paul Grellong, David Reed, Meredith Glynn, Judalina Neira, Ken F. Levin, Jason Netter, and the creators of “The Boys” comic, Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

There had been speculation that Season 5 might be the last, especially after Amazon renewed the series just before the Season 4 press tour kicked off. While Kripke had mentioned wanting at least five seasons to fully tell the story, the renewal announcement in May did not clarify whether it would be the final season, fueling rumors and anticipation among fans.

“The Boys” has also expanded its universe with several spinoffs. These include the animated anthology “The Boys Presents: Diabolical” and the live-action series “Gen V,” which focuses on a superhero college and is already in production for its second season. Additionally, there are two more projects in the works: one set in Mexico and another recently announced by Kripke.

As the countdown begins for Season 4, premiering with three episodes this Thursday, fans are eagerly anticipating how “The Boys” will bring its story to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion in the fifth and final season.
