The Boys' Antony Starr recently took to social media to confirm that filming has begun for the series' Season 4. The 46-year old New Zealand actor, who plays Homelander on the satirical superhero show, shared a throwback photo of the original members of the Seven with the caption "Season one. So long ago. Season four, now we begin ;)."
When the series began, the Seven included Queen Maeve, Starlight, A-Train, Black Noir, Translucent, The Deep, and Homelander. These characters were portrayed by Dominique McElligott, Erin Moriarty, Jesse T. Usher, Nathan Mitchell, Alex Hassell, and Antony Starr. By the end of Season 3, Homelander, The Deep, and A-Train are the only members of the group still standing as the rest have either left or died.

At the moment, very little is known about Season 4's plot. However, we know the title of the first episode, which showrunner, Eric Kripke, graciously posted on his Twitter handle. The tweet, which read "Day One" had a picture of the season's first episode script, which revealed the title to be "Department of Dirty Tricks."
It also revealed the names of the screenwriter and director to be David Reed and Phil Sgriccia respectively. Finally, Cameron Corvetti, who plays Ryan, Homelander's son with Butcher's wife, is now a season regular.
Given that, apparently, Butcher has only a few months to live, which has significantly upped the stakes, fans can expect a thrilling and exciting Season 4. What's more? There is a possibility we haven't seen the last of Queen Maeve and Soldier Boy as both characters were still alive when Season 3 ended.
Karl Urban and Jack Quaid will reprise their roles as Butcher and Hughie Campbell respectively. Laz Alonso, Tomer Capone, and Karen Fukuhara will also reprise their roles as Mother's Milk, Frenchie, and Kimiko. Earlier, we reported that Urban revealed that work on Season 4 will start this month.
There is no information on when filming will finish or when the new season will be released. However, the first three seasons of the show are available on Amazon.
