Amazon Prime Video has just released the trailer for the fourth season of one of its most important series, The Boys, sparking rumors about what will happen in these new episodes. The trailer coincides with Jeffrey Dean Morgan joining the series and a sort of civil war within the fanbase between those supporting Patriot and those rooting for Starlight.

It’s clear that the groundwork is incredible for a future climax that could lead to the best we’ve ever seen in the Amazon Prime Video series. However, there’s another event that could greatly impact these developments: the ending of Gen V, the teen spin-off that premiered recently and was a huge critical and audience success.

A virus could shape the development of The Boys Season 4

Gen V was a series that gradually built up, and while the first episode hinted at some intense developments to come, the series finale was a spectacular climax that shattered everything that had been the main storyline until then.

After extensive investigation by the main characters, they managed to free the prisoners from The Forest, thus thwarting the plans of the school itself and the creation of their lethal virus only suitable for supes. Amidst the chaos caused by the prisoners, whose thirst for revenge led them to destroy the entire campus, Patriot appeared: the most anticipated cameo of the series.

Patriot attacks Marie, something many saw as the definitive death sentence for the protagonist. However, the heroine manages to survive… and the next thing we see, in some post-credits scenes, are the boots of Billy Butcher, who makes his own appearance. This pretty much suggests that Butcher has found the virus being developed by Vought, which could be his ultimate weapon against Patriot and company. So, yes, Gen V could be the key to the development of the upcoming season of The Boys.
