The Boys are back in town!

To celebrate the birthday of the show's villain in hero's clothing, Homelander (Antony Starr), Prime Video announced that season 4 of the satirical superhero series will premiere on June 13. Three episodes will be available that day, with the rest of the season airing weekly.

The Boys season 4 finale will stream on July 18.

Alongside the announcement, Prime Video released a show poster for the series, which pictures Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) shaking hands with Homelander on what appears to be a political stage. Confetti falls around the pair.

As season 4 opens, the heroes will be heading for the end of the world — that is, if they can't save it before its ultimate demise. Victoria is working her way to the presidency, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) has months to live and no leadership to his name, and the rest of The Boys, in general, are sick of the dishonest dynamic that's been fostered within their organization.

While directing the season 4 finale in Toronto, showrunner Eric Kripke assured fans that he has no intentions of ending the show anytime soon.

"Cause you're asking! We've been shooting since late August," he tweeted in February. "I'm here to prep & direct the Season 4 finale. No, not the series finale, there will be more!"

Kripke added: "Most importantly, S4 premieres... at some point in the future in our discernible reality."
