The Boys Season 4 | Review by: Stefano Bove


After the intense finale from season 3, The Boys pick up the pieces and regroup with their new friends at the CIA. With Victoria Newman in the Vice-President seat and Homelander on trial for murder, The team has their hands full; the clock is ticking, and the stakes have never been higher. 

The V abuse has caught up to Butcher and his health is on a dramatic decline but that is not stopping him from trying to achieve his goals, even if he is being sidelined by The Boys. With the help of an old friend, Kessler (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) he is doing whatever he can to protect Ryan. Fans of Supernatural will be happy to see another alum in action as he brings his usual charm that viewers know and love to The Boys universe.

The deep, black Noir and A-Train have always had the least amount of screen time and character development each season but thankfully this season really pushes them all in new directions. 

Homelander is dealing with his trial but that is not stopping him from plotting for the future as he brings on two new members to the 7 to fill the gaps. Sister Sage (Susan Heyward)  and Firecracker (Valorie Curry) are both amazing additions to the season and each add a unique dynamic to the team. Most of the past 7 team members have been physical threats but Sister Sage being the worlds smartest person allows Homelander to finally get the upper hand on his enemies. 

One of the main aspects of The Boys that separates it from any other show on television, is it’s political satire. Firecracker may not be strong but she comes armed with enough deep state conspiracies that would make even Alex Jones laugh. 

What is now the penultimate season for the series, season four brings all of the action, raunchiness  and bloodshed that fans want to see. The show may be slightly formulaic at times but that does not mean you Cu**S won’t enjoy the season. Season four has some of the wildest kills, amazing cgi and of course, the funniest uses of the word Cu** probably to date.

The first 3 episodes of season 4 air on June 13th.
