The Boys Season 4 Episode 5 Release Date & Time

Summary

  • The Boys season 4 offers a unique look at superheroes in a morally flawed society, with a dark and violent twist.
  • Episode 5 reveals the aftermath of Starlight’s brutal actions and introduces a new threat with dosed-up sheep.
  • Season 4 is set to conclude on July 18, paving the way for a potential spin-off series while wrapping up the main story.



The Boys season 4 is shaping up to be one of the biggest and most explosive yet, but there are still a few episodes still to come out ahead of the season finale. The Boys is a superhero series with a difference. Unlike the typical Marvel and DC projects from large Hollywood studios, The Boys tries to offer a more grounded look at the ups and downs of having superpeople in a morally imperfect society. With greed, lust, anger and every one of the seven deadly sins, supes don’t always come out looking or feeling all that heroic.

The series was created by Eric Kripke, creator of the popular CW series, Supernatural, for Amazon Prime. Since it debuted on Prime Video in 2019, it has become one of the most watched titles on the platform (via Variety). Inspired by a series of comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys’brand of ultra-violent, no-holds-barred show delights and occasionally disgusts its audience as it pushes the envelope with each new episode.
