Move over Jensen Ackles. Another Supernatural alum is about to join the cast of Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan who played John Winchester on the long running CW TV series is perhaps more universally hated and beloved as Negan from AMC’s The Walking Dead. Now the Supernatural alum is reuniting with Supernatural and The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke on season 4 of the gritty superhero Prime Video series.
Details of Morgan’s character are still under wraps. However the news of his casting broke today over multiple sources, including the show’s official Twitter, and Morgan’s own humorous take on new artwork for the upcoming fourth season which features his likeness photoshopped into an existing piece of key art.
Ackles joined the show in season 3, as Soldier Boy, one of the original compound V recipients, and Vought’s first superhero.
Production on season four has already commenced.
The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes—who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods—abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought—the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It’s the seemingly powerless against the super powerful.
Season Three of The Boys starred Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Jensen Ackles.
The series is based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who also serve as executive producers, and developed by executive producer and showrunner Eric Kripke.
