    In an interview with Variety, Eric Kripke revealed that ‘The Boys‘ Season 5 is currently being written. And, shooting for the series may conclude in mid-2025. Kripke also revealed when he knew about making season 5 the final season of the show. “I would say near the beginning of writing Season 3, so years — years and years. And it took a minute for Amazon to agree, it took another minute to get them to clear it in all the channels so that we could finally announce it,” Kripke said. 

    When asked about ‘Gen V’ and the Mexico spin-off show currently under works, Kripke said, “I think they can and should continue.” He added, “‘The Boys’ story is about Butcher and Homelander and these two planets crashing into each other and this particular story doesn’t work without both of them. And you can only keep that going for so long.”

    Kripke continued to say, “So what I would say is, this particular story is ending, the Butcher-Homelander is ending. But there can be other stories and other corners of the universe.” Kripke ended with saying, “And hopefully, it’s vibrant and perverted enough to allow for those stories. So hopefully, “Gen V” continues, hopefully, a couple other things we have in development continue.”
