In terms of superhero series, The Boys is the most dominating television series. The series has been immensely loved by the fans as it is based on a unique concept where superheroes are like celebrities, but they are immensely powerful and can do whatever they want. A group of vigilantes called “The Boys” try to take down these so-called superheroes, who use their power for personal gains.
The series has been immensely loved by the audience and it has been appreciated for its sharp writing, strong plot, round characters, its depiction of modern society, dark humor, and gory action scenes. It was expected that the fourth season would be the finale of The Boys, but Eric Kripke, the creator of the show confirmed that the show will continue after the fourth season.

Cause you're asking! We've been shooting since late August. I'm here to prep & direct the Season 4 finale. No, not the series finale, there will be more! Most importantly, S4 premieres… at some point in the future in our discernible reality. @PrimeVideo @SPTV https://t.co/UgNBPZKlCT
