The third season saw the series shifting a lot politically with Victoria Neuman and Homelander’s partnership. It also saw the dynamics between Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy and Anthony Starr’s character changing heavily after massive revelations had been made about the former being the latter’s biological father. The show saw a lot for the titular team as well. Their relationships, sacrifices, passion, and rage were challenged heavily by the Superheroes at Vought. The upcoming season will introduce new characters and with it, it will continue with the pending story for Billy Butcher and Homelander.

Could Homelander Die In The Upcoming Season Four Of The Boys

Homelander’s truth seemed to have been out in the open by the end of the third season of the show. The audience around him was cheering for him as he slaughtered a man right in front of everyone, showing the blind faith that people have in superheroes. This assassination could perhaps be of none other than Starr’s character or even Neuman. Seeing that the character went rogue by the end, there is an open area of possibilities for the series now.

It is to keep in mind that this has very little possibility of happening considering that Anthony Starr is a prominent reason for the fame that The Boys has received. His acting has been so impactful that his presence can be felt when the actor would appear on the screen. So to wonder about him being the character who could eventually be assassinated might not be the best. Characters like Victoria Neuman or even Soldier Boy have a chance of meeting their end eventually.

The Boys season four will air later in 2023 on Amazon Prime.
