The Boys Season 5 Will Bring The Violent Superhero Show To An End – SlashFilm


The end has truly begun for “The Boys.” Prime Video finally decided to give Eric Kripke the go-ahead to announce the end of the series on the same day that reviews for season 4 just dropped, including /Film’s own review by Danielle Ryan. Based on the comic series created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the adaptation starring Jack Quaid, Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Karen Fukuhara, and more has gone on to earn several Emmy nominations and one win over the years. The streaming platform certainly would’ve wanted to keep the good times rolling indefinitely, but it’s to Kripke’s credit that he was able to land the plane on his own terms.

In fact, Kripke most recently danced around the very same question about when “The Boys” would come to a close in a yet-to-be-published interview with /Film’s Jacob Hall. When asked if he had a “master plan” to finish up the conflict between the eponymous Supe-hunting team of the Boys and the evil Supes led by Homelander and the Vought corporation, he responded:

“…I know where I want a lot of the characters to end up, that’s what I would say. I actually don’t even necessarily know the climax of the show, as much as I know that 10 pages that happens at the end, when they say “six months later,” and you see where everyone is. I know where everyone is. Then my job, whenever we get to it, my job is to just make sure we can back into that.”

We’re willing to let Kripke’s intentionally obfuscating answers slide this time, as long as seasons 4 and 5 live up to the very high standards set by the earlier ones. “The Boys” season 4 premieres June 13, 2024 on Prime Video, and stay tuned for our full interview with Kripke later this week.
