The Boys Showrunner Working Hard to Add Jeffrey Dean Morgan to Season 4

Supernatural writer Eric Kripke is still trying his hardest to bring star Jeffrey Dean Morgan to the world of The Boys. Speaking with E! News, Kripke (who is the showrunner behind The Boys) revealed that he and Morgan are in constant contact, and are currently trying to work out a way for Morgan to join The Boys in the now confirmed fourth season.

“Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a superfan of the show, so he and I are talking. We’re trying to figure out something for season four. Nothing finalized yet, but he and I are chatting and e-mailing and seeing it we can make it work with his busy schedule. So, stay tuned on that.”

Jeffrey Dean Morgan starred as John Winchester in Supernatural, the father of Sam and Dean Winchester played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles respectively. Now that Ackles has joined The Boys as the old-world superhero Soldier Boy, Kripke would love the chance to reunite all three of the Supernatural stars in the Amazon series. Adding that he would for Jared Padalecki to join the fray as well.


“I would put Jared on the show in a heartbeat. I mean, he’s really busy with his empire over there in Austin, but if it was willing to play, I would put him on the show in a second.”

This is far from the first time that Kripke has revealed his intentions of adding Jeffrey Dean Morgan to The Boys, with the writer explaining that it is simply scheduling, and Morgan’s commitment to The Walking Dead franchise, that is keeping him from joining Amazon’s comic book series. “The question has been asked,” Kripke said previously. “Sad for me, happy for him: He’s currently the lead, along with Lauren Cohan, on The Walking Dead spin-off. So, schedule-wise, I don’t know. We might still remain star-crossed, unfortunately, because I did ask. We had a role come up, and my first question was, ‘Well, is Jeffrey available?'”

Prime Video

Based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys Season 3 finds Billy Butcher in a surprising position – calm and on the straight and narrow. In fact, it’s been a year of calm. Homelander has been subdued. And Butcher is now working for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So, when The Boys learn of a mysterious anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into The Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first superhero: Soldier Boy.

The series, which has never shied away from the envelope-pushing events depicted in the comic, recently brought one of the more controversial arcs to live-action in the latest episode, Herogasm, which finds our heroes entering an annual Supe orgy.

Starring Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Chace Crawford, Jessie T. Usher, and Nathan Mitchell, The Boys Season 3 is currently streaming on Prime Video.
