“The Boys” has been picked up for a fifth season at Amazon Prime Video.

Season 4 of the raunchy superhero show will debut June 13. “The Boys” Season 4 will launch with its first three of eight total episodes, rolling out the remaining installments on a weekly basis. The finale will stream July 18.

The series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit and Cameron Crovetti.

“The Boys” is executive produced by showrunner Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Phil Sgriccia, Michaela Starr, Paul Grellong, David Reed, Meredith Glynn, Judalina Neira, Ken F. Levin and Jason Netter, along with “The Boys” comic creators Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

The Emmy-winning drama, which first premiered in 2019, hails from Sony Pictures Television, Amazon MGM Studios with Kripke Enterprises, Original Film and Point Grey Pictures.

Currently, “The Boys” universe at Amazon consists of spinoff “Gen V,” animated anthology “The Boys Presents: Diabolical” and a Mexico-set offshoot that is still in the development stage.

News of “The Boys” Season 5 renewal came out of Amazon Prime Video’s first-ever upfronts presentation to advertisers Tuesday.

“’The Boys’ is an unabashed and bold series that continues captivating our customers all over the world by piercing the cultural fabric season after season,” Amazon MGM Studios head of television Vernon Sanders said. “We are proud of this series that has grown into a global franchise, and we are thrilled that Eric Kripke and the creative team have more engaging stories to tell for all the loyal fans.”

Kripke added: “’The Boys’ could be the best job I’ll ever have. What other show allows me to write about politics, capitalism, family, and exploding genitalia, though not in that order. The cast and crew are deeply grateful to Sony Pictures Television and Amazon MGM Studios for the opportunity to tell this story for another season. My only problem is that since this year promises to be free of any conflict or misinformation, we’re not sure what to write about.”

“Since its premiere, devoted fans across the globe have been down with ‘The Boys’ for this unapologetically wild ride,” said Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios. “And we couldn’t be more proud of our producers, writers, cast, and crew who bring this genius insanity to life. Now, with a fifth chapter to their story, we can’t wait to see where Eric Kripke and ‘The Boys’ go next.”
