Amazon Prime Video has had a bunch of hit series, but none of them are like The Boys. The series is Executive Produced by Erik Kripke (Supernatural, Revolution) and even though there have only been three seasons, it has already become a staple in pop culture. It appears that The Boys is so popular that moments from the series are being sampled in music. Hip-Hop producer Metro Boomin recently released his latest album Heroes & Villains, and on the first track that's titled "On Time" that features John Legend has a key Homelander speech from The Boys season 3.
"I am done apologizing! I am done being persecuted for my strength!" Homelander says in season 3 episode 2. "You people should be thanking Christ that I am who and what I am because you need me. You need me to save you."
Starr shared the song and supported Metro Boomin on Instagram. "Look there where a certain speech from a certain chap popped up… Cool to support a great artist. @metroboomin album "Heroes and Villains"(Track one, outro…) @johnlegend ;)" You can check out the post above.
The Boys was officially renewed for a fourth season weeks before the season finale aired. With the series ending on such a high note, fans are definitely excited to see what will happen next. Karl Urban, who plays Butcher in the series, recently revealed when filming for the fourth season of the series will begin, so we could wind up getting some new info sooner rather than later.
"From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season 3 of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder-an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season," Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, shared in a statement. "The Boys continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that. We are immensely proud of the cast and crew that has spawned a franchise for Prime Video, but and we look forward to bringing more of The Boys to our customers."
"Speaking for the cast and crew, we're so grateful to Sony, Amazon, and most of all the fans for embracing the show and allowing us to make more," The Boys showrunner, added. "We're thrilled to continue Butcher and the Boys' fight against Homelander and the Seven, as well as comment on the insane world we're living in. Also, this is the first time in history that exploding genitalia has led to further success."
Jeff Frost, President, Sony Pictures Television and Jason Clodfelter, co-President, Sony Pictures Television said in a statements, "The Boys producers and cast have proven year after year that there is no bar they can't jump over. We are incredibly proud of this brilliant and subversive genre-bending series. Our relationship with Prime Video is much more than a partnership, it's more like extended family. Everyone here at Sony Pictures Television is thankful to join Prime Video and Eric Kripke for another successful season."
All episodes of The Boys are streaming exclusively on Prime Video now. Stay tuned for more details on Season 4.
