The Boys Season 4: Counting Down Episodes and Anticipating the Epic Finale

The Boys season 4’s premiere has been released on Amazon Prime Video, leading many to wonder how many episodes make up the season in total. With two years having passed since The Boys season 3’s ending, the anticipation to see a continuation of the show is high. This anticipation has finally been answered with the release of The Boys season 4’s three-episode premiere, seeing the return of the satirical, darkly hilarious, gruesome world of Billy Butcher and Homelander that differs from The Boys comic books.

Interestingly, The Boys season 4’s story will tie into the events of Gen V season 1’s ending. Gen V was the college-based spin-off of the show which provided insights into what Billy and Victoria Neuman, for example, will be up to next. Some of these storylines reared their head in The Boys season 4’s premiere, such as the mention of a virus that kills Supes. As expected, however, The Boys season 4’s first three episodes leave the story lingering for an explosive season, begging the question of when future episodes will be released and when the show’s finale will drop on Prime Video.

The Boys Season 4 Has 5 Episodes Left Out Of 8 Total

After the three-episode premiere, The Boys season 4 has five episodes remaining. As has been the case with prior seasons of the show, The Boys season 4 consists of eight total episodes. This follows the precedent set by The Boys seasons 1, 2, and 3, as well as Gen V, all of which had eight separate installments. With five of the eight remaining after The Boys season 4’s premiere, the burning question now is when each of those will be released.

Given that The Boys season 4 has the same amount of episodes as prior seasons, it will follow the same release schedule as all others besides The Boys season 1. The latter released all eight episodes simultaneously on Prime Video, allowing a binge-watch for viewers. Since then, however, The Boys seasons 2, 3, and 4 – and Gen V season 1 – have followed a consistent release schedule. After the premiere’s three episodes, The Boys season 4’s remaining installments will be released weekly.
