The Boys Season 4 Is ‘Even Crazier,’ Says Simon Pegg

While not too much is known about The Boys Season 4star Simon Pegg said the new season will be crazier than ever.

Speaking to Collider, Pegg was asked about the upcoming season, where he’ll once again reprise his role as Hughie’s (Jack Quaid) father. Pegg said he’s excited to be back with the crew, and previewed a “crazier” upcoming season.

“You know how crazy The Boys is? It’s gonna get crazier,” Pegg said. “I had so much fun on that show. It was so great to go back and play Hugh Sr. I love Jack [Quaid]. It was great to work with Rosemarie DeWitt, who plays Hughie’s mom, who comes back. It’s going to be great. You’re gonna love it.”

What do we know about The Boys Season 4?

The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes — who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods — abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show retains most of the comics’ boundary-pushing 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, along with Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Nathan Mitchell, Claudia Doumit, and Colby Minifie.

Season 3 featured the addition of Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles as the infamous Soldier Boy, Katia Winter as Little Nina, Miles Gaston Villanueva (Law & Order True Crime) as Supersonic, Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints) as Gunpowder, Nick Wechsler (Revenge) as Blue Hawk, and Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) as Crimson Countess.

The series, based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is created by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen — who are also responsible for AMC’s Preacher — and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke. Seasons 1 to 3 are available to stream on Prime Video.
