The Boys star Jack Quaid shows off his custom ugly Christmas sweater inspired by the series.
Shared on The Boys’ official Twitter, a photo shows the actor, who portrays Hughie Campbell, dressed for the holidays in a custom ugly sweater. “You’ve heard of Hughie on a Buoy, but what about Jack in a Jumper?” the caption reads. The series also confirmed that the sweater, which has The Boys emblazoned across the chest, was custom-made for Quaid and not currently available for purchase, “but we’ll check if we can make more and put ‘em up for sale next year.”

The Boys is based on the comic series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson and the first two seasons of the show, created by Eric Kripke, first aired on Prime Video. Season 3 of The Boys wrapped filming in September of 2021. The long-awaited third season began filming in late January 2021 in Toronto following production delays due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Amazon picked up The Boys for a fourth season in June just days after its Season 3 premiere. While little is known regarding the details of the upcoming season, it was recently confirmed that Cameron Crovetti, who plays Homelander’s (Antony Starr) super-powered son, Ryan, had been promoted to a series regular for Season 4. It was also confirmed that the series had added two original supes to the new season as well: Valorie Curry as Firecracker and Susan Heyward as Sister Sage. Production on Season 4 began in August.
Season 4 of The Boys also added several new cast members, including Rosemary DeWitt as Hughie’s mother, Mrs. Campbell, and Elliot Knight and Rob Benedict in currently undisclosed roles. The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has also been added to the cast of the fourth season, though details on his character remain tightly under wraps, so much so that even his co-stars don’t know the role he’s playing. Tomer Capone, who plays Frenchie, teased that Morgan’s addition to the series will be “a hell of a ride.”
The Boys Universe Expands With Gen V
Prime Video is set to further expand The Boys universe beyond the release of the animated anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical and the web series Seven on 7. A spin-off titled Gen V is currently in development, which will follow superpowered students at the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting as they train to become Vought’s next generation of superheroes. The first trailer for Gen V was released in December.
“I think people will be surprised as they come into the show, and the show evolves, the implications that Gen V has on The Boys,” Amazon’s Head of Television Vernon Sanders said. “The two shows have some really interesting connections. So I’m probably saying more than I should, but I’m really excited. We’re thrilled with the results.”
The first three seasons of The Boys are now available to stream.
