Eric Kripke, showrunner and creator of The Boys, has confirmed that the Amazon Prime Video series will conclude with its fifth season. Kripke announced the news on Tuesday via X, ahead of the Season 4 premiere on June 13, with a redacted screenshot of the script for the immediately upcoming season’s finale.

“Season 5 will be the Final Season!” Kripke said, “Always my plan, I just had to be cagey till I got the final OK from Vought.” Check out the tweet below and learn that Season 4 will end–spoiler–with something taking place at night.

As recently as the beginning of June, Kripke was still quoted in interviews saying that The Boys might not end after Season 5, but the bottom of the script page above spells out that isn’t the case. Speculation about the series ending increased when Amazon renewed The Boys for a fifth season just before the promotional tour for Season 4. Kripke did tell Empire that he has an ending in mind for The Boys, an inevitable resolution to the central conflict between Billy Butcher and Homelander. “You can’t build a show that’s about these two forces of Homelander and Butcher slowly closing in on each other without bringing that to a head,” Kripke said. “Whenever that last episode occurs, I know what happens.”
