The Boys Gets Fourth Season Greenlight

"The Boys", the hit Amazon series, has been renewed for a fourth season. The third season just premiered last week.

Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, "From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder-an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that."

"The Boys" has spaned two spin-off series, as well. Earlier this year, "The Boys Presents: Diabolical", premiered on Prime. Some have even asked if there will be another season to the eight-episode "Diabolical".

"There is absolutely the possibility. We were excited when we launched. We thought there was a two-fold opportunity with Diabolical. One was to get The Boys fans excited about and get it out early. But we also wanted to see if there was another bite of the apple once the mothership show returned, and we are seeing real engagement and growth of the show there. We've definitely had conversations with the producers about what the next installment would look like," said Sanders.

The other is a college spin-off that is currently in the works and will debut next year. It will focus on the college made for America's superheroes. 

"We are thrilled, the dailies look great, we are excited about the cast that we have," Sanders said. "It absolutely has The Boys, it's part of the show, but I think the other thing we are excited about, it's different in its own way. It's definitely been a long road. I have to admit, when Eric Kripke came to talk to us about the spinoff, we were so excited about the potential of it, we told him we wanted it two years earlier than he said he could get it done. Eric has been great and brought great showrunners as well."

On top of all this, "The Boys" universe itself may also be growing.

"There's ideas beyond the shows that we have. We want to pace ourselves," Sanders said. "The launch  of the show this season so far has really blown us away, and I wouldn't be surprised if you heard about more but for the time being, we are focused on this next show and making sure that it lives up to everything it needs to be, and so far, we are on track."

"The Boys" stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Jensen Ackles.
