    The Boys has taken us on quite a journey since its premiere five years ago, but Butcher and Homelander will soon reach the end of the road. Eric Kripke, who created this series for Amazon Prime Video, said that the upcoming Season 5 will be its final chapter.

    Based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys chronicled the endless push-and-pull between the team of corrupt superheroes known as The Seven and the rivaling group of vigilantes The Boys, trying to expose them for who they truly are.

    This series will come back for its fourth season on June 13, and its creator Eric Kripke celebrated its return by taking to social media to announce that Season 5 will serve as its “gory, epic, emotional climax.”

    The Boys could’ve easily gone on for many more years since it’s one of Prime Video’s biggest hits, but the streaming giant eventually gave Kripke the green light to wrap it up after five seasons.

    “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… I give them all the credit in the world and I’m so grateful for them to let me end this story on my terms. That’s obviously really rare,” he told Variety.
