An update for The Boys Season 4 comes in the form of new set photos that Hughie Campbell actor Jack Quaid shared on his personal Instagram. Ever since season 1, the series has been subjecting Quaid’s Hughie to highly traumatic moments. Of course, it wouldn’t be The Boys if Hughie wasn’t in that situation. He joined them because of the first encounter, which left him still holding the hands of his then-fiancée.
We even posted back in February that the character’s first look was just revealed by Quaid as well. Interestingly, the wrap-up photo shows him to seem to be filming the same scene. Shooting that specific scene and continuity must have been bloody difficult for the production.
The upcoming season is expectedly the most brutal of all. Many things were left unresolved in Season 3.
First was whether Butcher would survive. Second was whether Homelander’s son would really follow in his footsteps. Third is the V24 itself. And many more, including who might die or live through the series.
The Boys Season 4 Isn’t Disappointing Jack Quaid’s Fans
In the actor’s official Instagram account, he has proven once more that Hughie always gets to be the one covered in what used to be insides of some person in every season. He wrote:
That’s a picture wrap on Season 4 y’all! WE FUCKIN DID IT! Thank you to our incredible cast & dedicated, hardworking crew who make every season so special. This one is no exception. In fact I think it’s our best one yet, but I’m the MOST biased person on the planet. Can’t wait for you guys to see what we got cooking! #Season4 #TheBoys
If it’s any indication, I hope it is safe to say that Hughie survives yet again this upcoming season. Will there ever be a future with him and Annie still together?
The Boys is actually among the best ongoing series, especially for adult superheroes in the real world. It successfully captured the reality of having people with special abilities struggling with those who don’t and specific guidelines everyone has to abide by to coexist.
The series seems to have so much story to tell even after everything that has happened. Homelander actor Antony Starr told ComicBook.com:
Hopefully we won’t outstay our welcome and we’ll go out when the time is right, when we’re in a good place. I think everyone’s astute enough, the powers that be are astute enough to make that call. That said, I think we’ve got a good few seasons in us yet.
I think we’ve got a great cast of characters and really interesting premise, and I think, like you said, we can really go anywhere with this. I think it’s a pretty healthy show and I think there’s a good life for it coming up.
