The Boys Promotes Homelander’s Son to Series Regular, Adds New Supes

0

The boys promoted 14-year-old actor Cameron Crovetti, who plays Homelander’s superpowered son Ryan, to a series regular for the upcoming fourth season.

The Prime Video success also launched two new Supes, Valorie Curry as Firecracker and Susan Heyward as Sister Sage. Both characters are original to the series rather than based on the comic book source material; therefore, no additional information is available.

Crovetti’s Ryan was introduced in Season 1 as a relatively minor character, but rose to prominence in later seasons. In the recently concluded Season 3, Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher revived the long-presumed first and greatest Supe, Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), to use as a weapon against Homelander (Antony Starr). In the season finale, Ryan finally made his choice between Butcher and Homelander, choosing to side with his father. In the final moments, Homelander introduced Ryan to the audience, only to murder a viewer. Rather than being horrified by his father’s brutal act, Ryan seemed thrilled by the cheers of approval from Homelander supporters.

Crovetti previously appeared with his twin brother Nicholas in the HBO drama big little lies. His credits also include dirty jeans and, more recently, Netflix The gray manin which he embodies the young version of the character of Ryan Gosling.

Curry’s filmography includes Veronique Mars, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2and Showtime house of lies. Heyward is perhaps best known for her roles on Sony PlayStation Powers and on Netflix Orange is the new black.

Prime Video renewed The boys for a fourth season in early June, just days after the premiere of season 3, which saw a 17% increase in global viewership from season 2 and a staggering 234% increase from season 1. The franchise has also grown, with the addition of the animated anthology The Boys Presents: Devilishand the upcoming college-themed spin-off, Generation V.

This live-action series is set in Vought International’s college for young adult superheroes – the only one of its kind. According to Prime Video, Generation V is “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonally competitive Supes as they test their physical, sexual and moral limits, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part of it is a college broadcast, in part hunger games – with all the heart, satire and raunch of The boys.”

No release date has been announced for The boys Season 4.
