It’s been a long time since the loser and bore Hughie Campbell lost his girlfriend. Since then, he has fully avenged her death to superheroes, but since he killed loved ones for someone, he was also hunted down. Now Hughie is not just an unwanted face, but an enemy of the entire American people, united against who they saw on TV…
“The Boys ss 4”: release date, announcement
The commercially flawless TV series “The Boys” has already received its sequel, scheduled for June 2023. And who can resist a society in which the eminent Homelander, who looks so much like the usual Superman, instead of saving humanity, destroys them?
Hughie’s father always worried that his son would grow up to be the same slobber as himself. When one of the superheroes smashed the girl of Hughie on the sidewalk while running at super speed, his father asked him not to get involved and not make enemies. But even then Campbell Jr. realized for himself that he would not be calm until the killer of his beloved was dead.
Soon Hughie learned that the real life of those whom society called superheroes is disgusting. They also take drugs, drink, use their powers for personal gain, humiliate, oppress, and in general are capable of doing whatever they please. People adore them, because the whole corporation is engaged in the image of superhumans. A tasty place on the Olympus of glory is already occupied by Homelander.
Well, the rest of the heroes can become part of his team. Young Annie always wanted to enter the Seven, and as an adult, she did everything to achieve fame. She was helped in this by her own superpower, a stubborn mother who hid the true reason for Annie’s birth, as well as other talents that she had to use in the toilet of the building where the superheroes were located.
Having accidentally met Hughie and struck up a relationship with him, Annie had no idea that she was giving away the secrets of her colleagues. But it just so happened, although in reality Annie meant a lot to Hughie. Closer to Season 3, they managed to settle their differences, but then the ubiquitous Homelander stepped in. Almost killing a couple, he decided to mind his own business, because his enemies numbered in the hundreds.
And some of them have been on the Hughie team for a long time. For example, Billy Butcher, whose wife was raped by Homelander a few years ago. No less vengeful than Hughie, he set traps for Homelander and his henchmen everywhere. In season 2, it became known that the wife, who was considered dead, was alive and did not specifically tell her whereabouts to Butcher, because after the rape she gave birth to a child.
Butcher was ready to save his beloved, but could not accept the child she had to give birth. Meanwhile, Hughie was trying with might and main to establish relations with Annie and not die from enemy onslaught. Season 3 kicked off the ending of Butcher’s relationship with Homelander, while season 4 will show how strong the power of superheroes is when the whole world knows the truth about them…

- One of the directors of the TV show was Stefan Schwartz, who made more than 40 films during his 20-year career. The most successful of them were “The Abduction Club”, “Dexter”, “Hustle”, “Luther”, “Power“, but none of them received more success than the TV series “The Boys”.
- In 2021, the TV show was nominated for many film awards, including an Emmy in several categories. Note that each season of “The Boys” received awards in different categories.
- Little actor Cameron Crovetti, who played the son of the main villain Homelander in season 2, has a twin brother. The guys auditioned for this role together. Despite the fact that Cameron was approved, both brothers were in the frame: one replaced the other.
- If we compare the TV series and the comic book of the same name, which was taken as the basis for its creation, we will see some discrepancies. For example, the character Translucent was created specifically for the TV series; in the original source, such a hero is simply not among the Seven.
