The Boys are back in town.

At least they're on their way. If you've been waiting (not so) patiently for the next installment of The Boys, we've got great news for you.

The world's strangest superheroes will grace our screens again this year, and we couldn't be more excited. Here's everything we know.

The Boys Season 4 EWK

If you're as excited as we are for another season of blood, guts, and outrageous super-powered shenanigans, you've probably been anxiously waiting for an update from Prime Video.

We've got you covered.

What is The Boys Season 4 Release Date?

Prime Video has been tight-lipped about the exact date they'll be dropping the fourth season, but the wait is finally over!

You can expect blood and mayhem beginning on Thursday, June 13, when Prime Video will drop three episodes of the series to digest slowly before the rest.

The Season 4 finale will premiere on Thursday, July 18, meaning we get five glorious weeks of discussing nothing but The Boys!

Who from The Boys Cast is Returning for Season 4?

The Boys has given us some outstanding and dynamic characters, so it makes sense that everyone wants to know who is coming back for the new season.

Luckily for most fans, the returning cast is expansive.

You can expect to see these familiar faces return:

● Karl Urban as Billy Butcher: he's tough as nails, foul-mouthed, and ready to fight supes no matter the cost.

Supe Hunters For Hire - The Boys

● Antony Starr as Homelander, one of television's most unsettling villains. His final act on the The Boys Season 3 finale -- revealing his son to the world -- might be one of his worst moves yet.

● Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell, the goofy nerd who doesn't fit in with the team. But what he lacks in experience and skill, he makes up in heart.

● Erin Moriarty as Starlight, whose trauma runs deep. Her determination to prove herself and do the right thing by innocent civilians set her apart from other supes.

● Chace Crawford as The Deep, who we still haven't been able to look at the same since that scene. You know the one.

The Deep's Gills - The Boys

Others who will be reprising their roles include:

● Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko

● Laz Alonso as Mother's Milk

● Tomer Capone as Frenchie

● Colby Minifie as Ashley Barrett

Herogasm - The Boys

● Simon Pegg as Hugh Campbell

● Olivia Morandin as Zoe Neuman

● Jim Beaver as Robert Singer

Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy

Pulling Her Hair Out - The Boys Season 2 Episode 8

Notably, Dominique McElligott is not slated to return after her character, Queen Maeve, lost her powers and skipped off in search of a peaceful life.

Additions to the Boys Season 4 Cast

New to the crew for what promises to be an explosive season are a handful of talented actors, including some pretty big names.

So far, we know for sure that Susan Heyward is joining us as Sister Sage and Valorie Curry has signed on to play Firecracker.

Valorie Curry is Firecracker - The Boys

A few other actors have been announced, but we don't know for sure who they'll be playing just yet.

The rest of the new folks we know about so far are below.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Susan Heyward, and Valorie Curry will be joining the series in unknown roles, according to the Season 4 release date information.

Earlier, we had learned that Rob Benedict and Elliot Knight were joining in unknown roles, and Rosemarie DeWitt has been cast as Hugie's long-lost mom, but there was no mention of them in the release announcement.

We wouldn't be surprised if Benedict still appeared alongside his Supernatural cohort Jeffrey Dean Morgan, as Eric Kripke has been dipping into that well very successfully.

Has a Trailer for The Boys Season 4 Been Released?

For fans itching to lay eyes on the supes again, there's good news.

A teaser trailer has been released, and we've got the goods.

It fulfills a promise that more of what we love from The Boys is on the way.

The trailer gives us just enough to get us back on the hook and leave us wanting more.

Chaos erupts in the city, new characters are on the scene, and our old friends are back to their old tricks.

Proving that nobody is lying down on the job, Victoria Neuman has a campaign speech prepared that will roll over you like the slick propaganda that it is.

Take a look:

What's The Boys Season 4 Storyline?

Officially (because we are official when we can be official!) it is this:

In Season Four, the world is on the brink.

Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power.

Supe Hunters For Hire - The Boys

Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son and his job as The Boys’ leader.

The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late.

Will The Boys Season 4 be a Continuation of Gen V?

Following the success of The Boys, the wildly popular spinoff Gen V took its time setting up the plot for the upcoming season.

After the bloodbath that took place at Godolkin University on Gen V, there's virtually no chance that Homelander won't use that to further his agenda.

Dropping By Unannounced - Gen V Season 1 Episode 8

Not to mention the fact that Butcher and his team are reaching a point where they're going to need help.

And a group of college student supes who share his distaste for The Seven just might be his ticket to success.

Butcher won't want to work with supes, but there's a good chance that he'll find himself begrudgingly going along with it.

He knows their powers are valuable in a fight against other powerful people. But can he put aside his pride and disgust for the greater good?

How Many Episodes Will The Boys Season 4 Have?

So far, every season of The Boys has consisted of eight episodes.

The new season has been confirmed to have eight episodes, as well, with three dropping when the fourth season premieres on June 13 and runs through July 18.

We don't know too much about what each episode will entail yet, but we do know (thanks to a leak by Eric Kripke himself) that the finale will be titled "Assassination Run."

Kripke plans to direct the season finale.

Where Can I Watch The Boys Season 4?

As with the other seasons, you can steam it exclusively on Prime Video by anyone with an account.

New Season 4 Posters Promise Chaos

Today, the Official X account for The Boys released two kickass posters.

We're not going to lie. We're all in for Billy Butcher leading the charge and everyone else using every power available against the aggressors. Starlight, now in street clothes, is such a welcome addition to our favorite rebels.

Never to be outdone (in his mind) or left behind, a second poster shows Homelander with his own army of men, none of whom are important enough to show their faces.

Homelander flashes a grotesque grin that bears no good will behind the effort.

We couldn't be more ready for the battle ahead, and we expect it will unfold with all the special flourishes that only The Boys can deliver.

Stay tuned as we update this post with more details as they come in!
