The Boys fans were head over heels to see Amazon Prime Video renew this series for Season 5, but it turns out this will be its last chapter. Eric Kripke, the creator of the hit superhero satire, announced that the upcoming fifth season will bring the story to its “gory, epic, emotional climax.”

Kripke took to social media to celebrate the return of The Boys for Season 4 and shared an important announcement about its future. He revealed that he always imagined a five-season arc for Billy Butcher and Homelander, and Amazon eventually gave him the green light to wrap up their story.

Kripke told Variety it was important to get the news out there ahead of Season 4 because this announcement puts it into the right perspective.

“Everyone understands and they can go into Season 4 understanding the bigger shape of the huge five-season story… I just wanted people to understand where it fits into the larger piece so that they kind of get what this season is supposed to be,” he explained.

Season 4 of The Boys will return to Amazon Prime Video on June 13, and it will star Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie, and Claudia Doumit, plus newcomers Susan Heyward, Valorie Curry, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
