‘The Boys’ Renewed for Season 5 at Prime Video

The Boys will keep bringing the fight to superheroes for another season.

The series based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book has scored a fifth season pickup at Prime Video, Amazon’s flagship streaming service. The renewal announcement is part of Amazon’s first-ever upfront and comes a few weeks before the June 13 premiere of season four of The Boys.

The Boys is an unabashed and bold series that continues captivating our customers all over the world by piercing the cultural fabric season after season,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television for Amazon MGM Studios. “We are proud of this series that has grown into a global franchise, and we are thrilled that [showrunner] Eric Kripke and the creative team have more engaging stories to tell for all the loyal fans.”

Said Kripke, “The Boys could be the best job I’ll ever have. What other show allows me to write about politics, capitalism, family, and exploding genitalia, though not in that order. The cast and crew are deeply grateful to Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios for the opportunity to tell this story for another season. My only problem is that since this year promises to be free of any conflict or misinformation, we’re not sure what to write about.”

The Boys is one of Prime Video’s more popular series, regularly making Nielsen’s top 10 streaming rankings when new episodes are available. Sony Pictures Television produces the series with Amazon MGM Studios, Kripke Enterprises, Neal H. Moritz’s Original Film and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures.

In season four, Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) is closer to than ever to the Oval Office, though still under the thumb of Homelander (Antony Starr). Butcher (Karl Urban), who only has months to live, has lost Becca’s son and his post as leader of the Boys after the rest of the group became fed up with his lies. They still have to find a way to work together and save the world.

“Since its premiere, devoted fans across the globe have been down with The Boys for this unapologetically wild ride,” said Sony Pictures TV president Katherine Pope. “We couldn’t be more proud of our producers, writers, cast, and crew who bring this genius insanity to life. Now, with a fifth chapter to their story, we can’t wait to see where Eric Kripke and The Boys go next.”

Returning cast members for season four also include Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie and Cameron Crovetti, while Susan Heyward, Valorie Curry and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are joining the cast.

Kripke executive produces The Boys with Rogen, Goldberg, James Weaver, Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Phil Sgriccia, Michaela Starr, Paul Grellong, David Reed, Meredith Glynn, Judalina Neira, Ken F. Levin and Jason Netter.
