Prime Video’s American black comedy-satirical superhero television series The Boys developed by Eric Kripke stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Chace Crawford, Erin Moriarty, etc. Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book of the same name is what the show is based on. The story of the show follows a team of vigilantes as they get together to fight super-powered individuals who often misuse their power.
Eric Kripke got on board as the showrunner in 2016 along with serving as the executive producer of the show with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and others. The Boys upon its premiere was received well by the critics as well as the audience who couldn’t stop praising the storyline, humor, performances, and writing of the show. Recently the first look of the upcoming season was released which saw a familiar face and comparisons from the actor’s previous character were drawn. Let’s find out more.
Fans thrilled to see Jeffrey Dean Morgan in The Boys Season 4
Eric Kripke’s The Boys’ first look for season four was recently released which hints the show moving into a darker, gorier, and bloodier season. A familiar face of The Supernatural alum, Jeffrey Dean Morgan was also shown which has increased the level of excitement amongst fans that were eagerly waiting for the show. The show stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Chace Crawford, Erin Moriarty, etc.
There is very little known about the actor’s character in the first look except that he is somehow tied to Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher as they were seen having a light-hearted conversation over drinks about The Boys. The show is going to pick up a month after the events of its spin-off series Gen V’s finale and is expected to be the most intense season of all three.
The show’s official social media handle has been poking fun at the speculations of what character Jeffrey Dean Morgan is going to play on the show. Some drew comparisons to his The Walking Dead character; Negan on the show. The official X account wrote,
Oh and he carries a bat right? pic.twitter.com/GrKcrM0rHm

“No, we ain’t telling ya anything besides he wears a suit and swears like a sailor.” A user commented with a picture of Negan, “Oh and he carries a bat right?” Someone wrote, “Man is ready to do his Negan things in The Boys.” A user mentioned, “Jeffrey Dean Morgan was awesome as Negan, he’ll be an awesome addition in The Boys.”
Another user noted, “Perhaps leather clothes are more suitable for him.” A Supernatural show fan tweeted, “All we need is Sam and Crowly and that would be the official crossover of The Boys X Supernatural.”
Hey he swears like a sailor in a different role too. Are you saying he could be similar?
All I’m saying is Negan in The Boys is money

Since the show’s first look was revealed people have been curious about what role might the actor play who has been open about his love for the show.
Eric Kripke reveals his goal for The Boys’ endgame
Back in October, the creator of the show had noted that he would like to have a season lifespan for the show but after the success of Gen V and the response to the show he had been thinking about whether a season lifespan should be it.
During an interview with Inverse, Eric Kripke shared,
“I have since realized that literally no one in history is worse at predicting the amount of seasons of a show, like literally. I have learned my lesson and I’ve stopped predicting how many seasons these shows go. You will find out in hindsight.”
The creator had similar plans for his other successful and popular show The Supernatural which ran for a solid fifteen seasons.
