Which The Boys characters are returning in Season 4?

Karl Urban (Billy Butcher)

Billy Butcher, played by Karl Urban, has dedicated his life to fighting Vought and its corrupt Supes. He enters Season 4 more determined than ever to exact revenge against Homelander for what he did to Butcher’s wife, Becca. In Season 3, Butcher crossed a line he never imagined he would when he took Temp V, a variant of Compound V that bestows superpowers for 24 hours, so he could take the fight directly to Homelander and Vought. But doing so came with a devastating cost: Heading into Season 4, he now has less than a year to live. Will that be enough time to take care of business?

Jack Quaid (Hughie Campbell)

Jack Quaid plays Hughie Campbell, who’s been fighting the war on Supes with Butcher and The Boys since Season 1, after a loved one became collateral damage due to Supe malfeasance. In Season 3, feeling the war against Supe corruption was being lost, Hughie made the desperate decision to use Temp V with Butcher to level the playing field. But his choices quickly devolved into a flirtation with toxic masculinity as Hughie became intoxicated with the power Temp V gave him. It was the love of his life, Annie January (played by Erin Moriarty), who pulled him back from the brink and helped him understand that true strength isn’t about power; it’s about never giving up on doing the right thing.

Erin Moriarty (Annie January, aka Starlight)

Annie January, aka Starlight, played by Erin Moriarty, discovered just how corrupt Vought and its Supes are after she joined The Seven and painfully learned that the old adage is true: Never meet your heroes. In Season 3, she livestreamed over Instagram after the attack at Herogasm—the notorious superhero orgy inspired by the comic-book storyline—to expose Homelander and Vought’s lies, and announced to the world that she was quitting The Seven and becoming Annie January from then on. By the end of Season 3, Annie tossed her Starlight supersuit into the trash and officially joined The Boys. And, during the epic fight to stop Soldier Boy in the Season 3 finale, she discovered that she could fly.

Antony Starr (Homelander)

Homelander, played by Antony Starr, is the most powerful Supe on Earth and the leader of The Seven, the world’s premier superteam. His power set runs the gamut from super-strength and flight to the ability to blast lasers from his eyes. But behind the shiny veneer of an all-American icon lurks a terrifying psychosis. Homelander views himself as a god, superior to humans and all other Supes. At the end of Season 3, Homelander was reunited with his and Becca Butcher’s son, Ryan, who is also the world’s first natural-born Supe. But will Homelander’s terrifying influence turn Ryan into the next version of himself?

Jessie T. Usher (A-Train)

In Season 3, he saw firsthand how corrupt Vought and its Supes truly are when a racist Supe named Blue Hawk caused his brother, Nathan, to be severely injured, putting him in a wheelchair. A-Train demanded justice for his brother, but Vought refused to take action, so A-Train took justice into his own hands and killed Blue Hawk in revenge. But A-Train was devastated after his brother banished him from the family due to his own Supe malfeasance. A-Train enters Season 4 more disillusioned than ever by Vought and the evil of his fellow Supes.

In Season 3, he rejoined The Seven after pledging his unconditional loyalty and becoming a subservient lackey to Homelander. From then on, The Deep has done Homelander’s bidding, no matter how horrible the task, including assassinating the leading candidate for vice president at the end of Season 3, clearing the way for Victoria Neuman.
