Spoiler Alert: Amazon Renews ‘The Boys’ for Season 4


 

A week after the Season 3 premiere of The Boys, Prime Video ordered a fourth season of Emmy-nominated superhero series, Deadline reports.

 

Eric Kripke’s adaptation of the bestselling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson was a breakout hit when it launched in 2019. However, like most of its counterparts, Prime Video does not release ratings information for its shows. While that is still the case, Amazon has shared data on the growth in viewers for the first three episodes of each season over their first three days of release. (The entire first season of The Boys was available at launch, Seasons 2 and 3 premiered with three episodes each, followed by a weekly release of the rest.)

 

Over the first three days since Season 3’s June 3 debut, the worldwide viewership for The Boys has grown by +17% from season two, and +234% from season one, Prime Video said.

 

Based on The Boys‘ early success, Prime Video also has ordered two spinoff series to date, eight-episode anthology animated series The Boys Presents: Diabolical, which premiered earlier this year, and the upcoming college spinoff, which is now in production.

 

The untitled Boys spinoff, set at America’s only college exclusively for young-adult superheroes, went through a number of behind-the-scenes and in front of the camera changes en route to production, including bringing in new showrunners and recastings.
