The Boys Star Shares Throwback Seven Photo To Celebrate Season 4 Filming

Antony Starr confirms that production on The Boys season 4 has begun with a throwback image of the Seven. Concluding season 3 last month, Prime Video announced the show’s renewal within a week of its premiere. Based on a comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the series centers on the vigilantism of a titular group of misfits determined to expose the dark underbelly of superheroes.

Developed by Eric Kripke, The Boys season 3 saw the introduction of Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, the world’s first superhuman and the only adversary of comparable power to Homelander (Starr). Ending with a fittingly shocking finale, it was announced earlier this month that Cameron Crovetti, the teenage star behind Homelander’s son Ryan, would become a series regular in season 4, with new heroes depicted by Valorie Curry and Susan Heyward also set to be introduced. After hinting at a battle for Ryan’s soul between Homelander and Billy Butcher, the casting announcement seemed to confirm Kripke’s story plans for season 4.

Now, Starr appears to have confirmed that production on The Boys season 4 has officially begun, sharing a throwback photo from season 1. “Season one. So long ago,” he writes alongside an image of himself in full Homelander costume with the original cast of the Seven, featuring Erin Moriarty as Starlight, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir, Chance Crawford as The Deep, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, and Alex Hassell as Translucent. Marking the commencement of season 4, Starr playfully adds: “Season four, now we begin ;)” Check out the post below:

Re-tweeted on the official Twitter page of The Boys, Starr’s update seems to align with a statement from his on-screen nemesis, Karl Urban, who previously indicated that production was scheduled to begin on August 22. The filming of season 4 has been repeatedly teased this month, as castmembers including Starr, Crawford, Jack Quaid, and Karen Fukuhara posted pictures en route to the show’s filming grounds in Toronto, Canada. In addition to the core cast, Ackles also appeared to hint at the possible return of Soldier Boy next season, commenting that he was “on [his] way” in a recent post by Urban.

With Kripke and the season 3 finale hinting at some of the show’s most exciting plot lines to date, fans will be thrilled to hear that production on season 4 is officially underway. Though it could be the start of a protracted wait, with new episodes of The Boys not expected to arrive until late 2023, fans can at least expect some ample updates and entertainment from the show’s highly interactive social media accounts. Additionally, it could be that the upcoming Gen V spinoff series will be able to cater to fan appetites as the wait for season 4 begins.
