We already know that the likes of Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, and Chase Crawford will be returning for the fourth season. One of the actors that we didn’t know would be coming back or not is Esposito.
When TVLine asked Esposito about Stan Edgar’s possible return to The Boys in an upcoming season, the actor gave an interesting response. The actor kept his answer vague about how or when, but still left viewers hoping that Stan Edgar would live to see another day.
Moreover, this is not the first time Esposito has teased Stan’s possible return. Check out Esposito’s comments on a potential return to The Boys below:
I find The Boys to be a very creepy, interesting, edgy, and sick show — in the best way possible. It’s genius. And… I won’t string it out anymore: I think there is a great chance.

So, how could Edgar return in Season 4? Well, the character was last seen on the show after he was ousted as the CEO of Vought International. Homelander then became the new leader of the company, and he found out how hard it actually is to run a company like Vought International.
Vought and his allies, including Victoria Neuman, a daughter-like figure in his life, have cut ties. However, while Stan acted as an antagonist who ultimately got his comeuppance, he is still alive in The Boys Universe, meaning the door is wide open for his potential return.
It seems as though The Boys Season 4 will focus on Neuman as a lead villain. This is how Esposito’s Edgar could return in the fourth season. It’ll be interesting to see how it’ll all unfold given that Neuman betrayed Edgar.
Edgar could end up teaming up with Hughie and Butcher in order to get back at Neuman and stop her evil plan. That would be a major twist, but one that would provide a unique storyline for Edgar and the series going forward.

Another way in which Stan could return in The Boys Season 4 is through Victoria. Even though she ousted him from Vought and took everything he had built away from him, she might end up asking for his help in the next season.
Stan might also learn from what Victoria did since it was the sort of behaviour she was exposed to and taught to idolize by him. This means that her actions could force Stan to see the error of his ways. Stan could suffer a crisis of conscience, and he might attempt to put Victoria on a better path. He could even work toward giving her a similar epiphany as the one he may have had.
We still know very little about what will happen in the fourth season of The Boys. I really do hope that Esposito would return for the upcoming season.
