The Boys is extremely cursed, but I mean it in a good way, I believe. It’s difficult to watch an episode without wondering, “What did I just witness?” for at least ten minutes later.
What. A. Show.
Eric Kripke created the American superhero TV show The Boys for Amazon Prime Video. It is based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and it follows the titular vigilante team as they fight against people who misuse their superpowers.
Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, and Nathan Mitchell are among the cast members of the show.
The comic book series adaptation, which was once planned to be a full-length movie, started its development in 2008 with Adam McKay as its director.
The project was abandoned while still in progress as a result of creative disagreements between the team and the studios that acquired the movie.
In 2016, Cinemax stated that it would be adapted into a television series, reviving the development for the project. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were chosen to serve as the series’ executive producers, and Kripke was chosen to serve as its showrunner.
The series’ rights were acquired by Amazon Prime Video in November 2017, and Toronto-based filming got underway in May 2018.
Check out its trailer here:
On July 26, 2019, The Boys’ first season of eight episodes made its debut. On September 4, 2020, the second season debuted, and on June 3, 2022, the third season did the same. The show was given a fourth season in June 2022.
I need to see more
There will be “the most horrific thing” you’ve ever seen in season four of The Boys. I’m afraid. Remember that we’ve already seen a superhero orgie, which featured an octopus, and that there was the whole sneezing penis explosion incident?
I fear to imagine what else the program has in store. The Boys is currently the highest-rated superhero series out there, despite its curse.
According to Nielsen statistics, The Boys was the eleventh most streamed show overall in 2022, according to UNILAD.
The Prime Video series scored better than Loki, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk but fell short of Stranger Things, Wednesday, and The Crown. In 2022, a total of 10.6 billion minutes of the series were seen.
It’s actually quite shocking that not a single Marvel TV show made the top 15, as it were. The Boys is undoubtedly a more well-known film.
All of the Marvel programs have just made their season debuts, whereas the fourth season of the show is now in production. It’s still a remarkable accomplishment. Who is anticipating season four?
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who starred in The Walking Dead, will be joining the cast, in case you missed it, and we’ve already gotten our first glimpse of Butcher and Homelander back in action. The Boys’ fourth season has not yet been given a release date.
Even the possibility that it will air this year is uncertain because of the ongoing filming. Well, let’s hope it does.
