Another major actor is joining the upcoming highly anticipated fourth season of Amazon’s The boysas Jeffrey Dean Morgan has officially joined the cast in an undisclosed role.
The announcement came on The boys‘ official Twitter account, welcoming Morgan to the cast and teasing that they’re unsure if he’ll get to wear any pantyhose. Morgan is yet another high-profile star set to join the upcoming season of the show, following the announcement that Susan Heyward would also join the show earlier this month.
For Morgan, this will be another opportunity to work with writer, producer and showrunner Eric Kripke. The pair worked together when Morgan starred as John Winchester on the CW series Supernatural. Since then, Morgan has appeared in a number of roles, most notably as The Comedian in the 2009 film The guards and as the iconic villain Negan in The Walking Dead series.

The boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and revered as gods abuse their superpowers instead of using them for good. It’s the powerless against the super-powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to uncover the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven”. The show retains most of the comics’ borderline violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.
The Amazon Studios series stars Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara and Karl Urban alongside Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Nathan Mitchell, Claudia Doumit and Colby Minifie.
Season three featured the addition of Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles as the infamous Soldier Boy, Katia Winter as Little Nina, Miles Gaston Villaneuva (Law and Order True Crime) as Supersonic, Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints) as Gunpowder, Nick Wechsler (Revenge) as Blue Hawk and Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) as Crimson Countess.
Based on the comic series created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the series is created by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, who are also responsible for AMC’s Preacherand Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.
Seasons one through three are available for streaming on Prime Video.
