Eric Kripke, the creator of The Boys starring the 50-year-old Afro-Cuban American actor, has announced that the series will end with the upcoming fifth season.

Laz Alonso, The Boys“Season 5 will be the Final Season!,” Kripke wrote on X. “Always my plan, I just had to be cagey till I got the final OK from Vought. Thrilled to bring the story to a gory, epic, moist climax. Watch Season 4 in 2 DAYS, cause the end has begun!

The Boys received an early renewal for Season 5 last month ahead of this month’s Season 4 release.

In 2020, Kripke told fans that his “rough idea” for The Boys was “five seasons total,” acknowledging at the time, “But I also know better than to say how many seasons a show is gonna have.”

In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, Kripke wouldn’t speculate on how many seasons The Boys would go, but said he did have “an ending in mind.”

In addition to Alonso, The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit,and Cameron Crovetti.

The Boys 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 Kripke.

The Boys is produced by Sony Pictures TelevisionAmazon MGM Studios with Kripke Enterprises, Original Film and Point Grey Pictures.
