‘The Boys’ Season 4 Trailer Has Homelander Unleashing His “Wrathful Gods” On The World

Fans of The Boys have reason to get very excited, as the trailer for the anticipated fourth season has arrived. And based on this footage, the violence is being ratcheted up to a whole new level as the war between Billy the Butcher (Karl Urban) and Homelander (Antony Starr) explodes.

Butcher only has so much time left to live after his overdosing of Temp-V, and so he comes back to his only friends, The Boys, in hopes of recruiting them for one last go at finishing all supes. Tying in with the recent Gen V series, Billy plans to unleash a virus that can kill all supes, an idea that Starlight (Erin Moriarty) isn’t a fan of, for obvious reasons.

Meanwhile, Homelander wants to see some wrath. He plans to unleash holy Hell on anti-Vought protestors, encouraging The Seven, including new members Firecracker (Valorie Curry) and Sister Sage (Susan Heyward), to be “wrathful gods.”

After that, we see The Seven’s brutal assault, dismembered body parts, the murderous use of a chicken, attacking beavers, and more.

We also get a look at Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Joe Kessler, who has some words of warning for Billy to heed: “The whole world is about to burn. We need someone like you, Billy, before the supes start rounding us up and start dumping us off in camps,” he says.

Here’s the synopsis for season 4: “In Season Four, the world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power. Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son and his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late.”

Prime Video debuts the first three episodes of The Boys season four on June 13th. The entire season consists of eight total episodes.
