The Boys Season 4 Features Supernatural’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan As A Recurring Guest Star
Season 4 of The Boys cast Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a recurring guest star. Details regarding his role are under wraps and he will reunite with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, who currently serves as showrunner on The Boys. Kripke confirmed earlier this week on Twitter that filming for Season 4 has begun, with the first episode titled “Department of Dirty Tricks.” The episode is written by David Reed, while Phil Sgriccia (Supernatural) takes over directing the Amazon Prime Video series.
Morgan, best known for playing bat-wielding villain Negan on The Walking Dead, will appear in The Boys season 4 – currently filming in Toronto, Ontario. In an interview, Kripke had spoken about his attempts to secure Morgan’s spot in the upcoming season saying, “Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a super fan of the show, so he and I are talking. We’re trying to come up with something for season four. Nothing finalized yet, but him and I are chatting and emailing and seeing if we can make it work with his busy schedule. So stay tuned on that.
Kripke and Morgan last collaborated on the CW series Supernatural, where the former played family man John Winchester/Azazel, in a recurring role. Morgan isn’t the first Supernatural star to reunite with Kripke, as The Boys season 3 saw Jensen Ackles join the cast as Soldier Boy. He previously played the son, Dean Winchester, in the dark fantasy drama.
Morgan is also set to return in the upcoming The Walking Dead spinoff series Dead City, alongside Lauren Cohan. The offshoot of the long-running zombie-killing drama focuses on the unlikely pair of Maggie and Negan – the latter having murdered her husband in the main show. The two also played parents Thomas and Martha Wayne in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Earlier this month, Prime Video also added Valorie Curry (The Tick) and Susan Heyward (Orange is the New Black) to the cast of The Boys. Meanwhile, Cameron Crovetti’s Ryan, son of Homelander, has moved up to series regular for Season 4.
Seasons 1-3 of The Boys are currently streaming, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. Currently, there is no release window for The Boys season 4.
