Giancarlo Esposito plays Stan Edgar in the show.

Esposito plays Vought International CEO, Stan Edgar, in the show. After the events of season 3, many fans were not certain whether the character will feature in the next season. Esposito has dispelled all doubts and confirmed he will return in the next season which is currently filming with a post on Twitter.

Esposito’s character has been a mainstay of the show over the three seasons produced so far. The grizzled Edgar, who he plays, is responsible for ensuring Vought International runs smoothly.

Naturally, this includes superheroes as they are also one of the company’s products. Even if some fans don't have much love for the character, given his role in Vought International, a lot will agree the actor depicts the role perfectly. As a result, many fans were sad to see him go when it seemed his time with the show was over.

The show features Antony Starr as the villainous superhero Homelander.

It is not immediately clear what part Edgar will play in The Boys season 4 since the villainous Homelander has taken his place as the head of the company. However, given the fact that Homelander colluded with Edgar’s adoptive daughter to dethrone him, we suspect he will work alongside The Boys to get revenge on her and Homelander.

At the moment, this is all speculation, as Amazon Prime and The Boys showrunners haven't provided clues into the show’s plot. As filming progresses, we are certain set photos, among other things, will provide an insight into what fans should expect.

Fans will be eagerly awaiting Season 4 to see whether the showrunners can deliver on the promise they set up in Season 3.

Amazon Prime officially renewed the show for a fourth season a few weeks before it aired the season three finale.

Following this decision, Vernon Sanders, who heads global television at Amazon Studios, had this to say:

From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season 3 of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder-an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season. The Boys continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that. We are immensely proud of the cast and crew that has spawned a franchise for Prime Video, but we look forward to bringing more of The Boys to our customers.

The show's ensemble cast includes Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Antony Starr as Homelander, Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Erin Moriarty as Annie January, Tomer Capone as Frenchie, and Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko Miyashiro, among many others.

While The Boys’ season 3 ended on a high note, it also left fans with questions that they'll have to wait for a long time to get an answer.
