‘The Boys’ Season 4 Release Schedule: When Do New Episodes Air?

The penultimate season of Eric Kripke’s The Boys has arrived, forecasting a summer of power-hungry superheroes fighting for power and toeing the line between good and evil. The bleak tone of Season 4 can be seen in the trailer as Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) seeks a way to keep the supes at bay.

Showrunner Kripke spoke to Deadline about the political implications of this season ahead of the 2024 election, and one episode of the new season will premiere on the 4th of July. Ahead of Season 4’s launch, the show was renewed for a fifth and final season, which was Kripke’s rough plan.
