Posting recently to his official Twitter feed @antonystarr, the actor behind Homelander, revealed a tidbit about the show’s next season that will catch fans’ attention. “Season one. So long ago,” Starr writes, then adds, “Season four, now we begin [winking emoticon].” And accompanying the lyrics is a shot of Starr standing in full costume amid a lineup of half a dozen of his Supe co-stars.
So why, now that Season 4 has seemingly started filming, does Metzger actor Karl Urban think the show’s first three seasons have managed to strike such a chord with viewers, despite their super strong bad behavior and well-deserved reputation for shock value ? As the actor told Fandom Wire, “I think every season, every single script, you get to this point where you’re in a state of shock and disbelief that we’re actually not only asked to do it, we’re allowed to do it to do that.” Urban then commented specifically on Season 3, noting that the show’s consistent crossing of the line of ‘what is acceptable on TV’ is ‘…balanced by the fact that the show has a big heart and the audience really enjoys spending time with these characters.” In any case, if Starr’s tweet is the real deal, Supe fans can rest easy knowing that production of The Boys season 4 is now underway.
