Eric Kripke’s Five Season Plan for THE BOYS Is (Probably) Changing

The Boys is coming back to Prime Video for a fourth round and, based on the trailers, there will be lots of fighting. The Seven (well, Six) against the Boys, the Boys against Victoria Neuman, Starlighters vs. Homelander supporters, and so much blood and gore. Fans are absolutely loving this series and, until now, were expecting it to come to a close in its fifth season. That’s what creator and showrunner Eric Kripke said years ago. Now, Kripke is whistling a different tune and saying that he is rethinking that five season plan for The Boys. When you have success, you gotta run with it like A-Train, right?

Now that The Boys has gotten a season five renewal, he is not quite ready to bring this series to an end. Here’s what he recently said in an Inverse interview: 

“I have learned since then to not try to call the seasons as the person who, and this is without hyperbole, is literally the most wrong in entertainment history of how many seasons their show should go. Someone pointed that out to me and I was like, ‘You’re right. That’s ridiculous. I need to keep my mouth shut.’ And so I will.”

Of course, he’s no longer making any statements nor promises about how long The Boys will run. Maybe it will go the far, far distance like Supernatural. Or, maybe Kripke will decide that season six or seven is enough. Either way, this universe is just now heating up with Gen V gaining steam and surely more spinoffs coming our way. We certainly aren’t complaining about more supe action in the future.
