‘The Boys’ season 4 trailer confirms ‘Gen V’ stars


All hell is about to break loose on The Boys season 4, and Antony Starr’s Homelander needs a few Gen V stars to do it.

Maddie Phillips and Asa Germann, who starred as the mind-controlling Cate Dunlap and the immensely strong Sam Riordan on the college-set spinoff, are confirmed to cross over with the mothership show. They made an appearance in the new season 4 trailer that arrived Friday as part of panel for The Boys, out of the inaugural CCXP México convention.

In the Gen V season 1 finale, Homelander embraced Phillips’ Cate and Germann’s Sam as heroes after turning on their friends and unleashing a murder spree at their college, Godolkin University. Now, the so-dubbed new Guardians of Godolkin, clearly have some part to play in Homelander’s master plan.

‘Gen V’ stars Asa Germann and Maddie Phillips return for ‘The Boys’ season 4.

“This country is corrupt beyond repair, so we gotta save it,” he says in the footage. “It’s not gonna be easy; we’ll have to do some terrible things for the greater good. You’ll no longer be beloved celebrities. You will be wrathful gods. Show me a little wrath.”

The footage continues to channel Donald Trump’s MAGA imagery when depicting Homelander’s supporters, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character warns that these extremist supes could start “rounding us up and dumping us off in camps.” But Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher has a potential solve, which marks another connection to Gen V.

Butcher has discovered a virus that can kill supes, which was a big part of Gen V‘s first season and further teased when Butcher made a cameo in the finale episode. “Insanely desperate’s where we are. Don’t you think, love?” he tells Erin Moriarty’s Starlight.

The other big reveal is the return of Black Noir, who was murdered by Homelander last season. However, showrunner Eric Kripke confirmed to Entertainment Weekly at the time that a new character will join the Seven as the next Black Noir — and because the OG never spoke or took off his mask, he’ll be played by the same actor, Nathan Mitchell. “It’s definitely not the last we’ve seen of Black Noir as a hero. It’s just that the guy who was inside [the Noir suit] in season 3, he’s gone. But we have Nathan playing a really interesting and hilarious character who wears the suit next season,” Kripke said.

Amazon will premiere the first three episodes of The Boys season 4 on June 13 on Prime Video before shifting to a weekly release. Watch the trailer above.
