The Boys returns tomorrow for its fourth season, and viewers now know the series’ end is in sight. The creator of the Prime Video superhero series, Eric Kripke, has announced on social media that season five will end The Boys.

He wrotw:

“#TheBoys Season 4 Premiere Week is a good time to announce: Season 5 will be the Final Season! Always my plan, I just had to be cagey till I got the final OK from Vought. Thrilled to bring the story to a gory, epic, moist climax. Watch Season 4 in 2 DAYS, cause the end has begun!”

After his announcement, Kripke spoke with Variety about ending the series and how the franchise may continue after The Boys ends. He revealed that season five will have eight episodes and start filming in mid-November. The series ending will wrap up the story of Butcher vs Homelander.

As far as spin-offs are concerned, there are already several in the works. Kripke teased that Gen V could continue after The Boys ends. He is already working on a spin-off set in Mexico, as well as other possible spin-offs. He teased the following:

“There can be other stories and other corners of the universe. And hopefully, it’s vibrant and perverted enough to allow for those stories. So hopefully, “Gen V” continues, hopefully, a couple other things we have in development continue.”

Viewers could also see some special guest stars pop up in the final season of The Boys. Kripke would like Jared Padalecki (Supernatural) and others to appear, but he says it depends on “who makes sense” for the story.

The official premiere date for season five of The Boys will be announced later, but if it follows previous season releases, it will land on Prime Video in June 2025.

What do you think? Are you surprised that The Boys will end with its fifth season? Are you hoping the franchise will continue?
