Following two years of scheduling disappointments, when sign likely implies it would be impossible to happen, The Boys carried it out: Jeffrey Dean Morgan has now jumped into being part of season 4.
Morgan, a self-appointed fan of the superhero drama, will work with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke – the producer of The Boys – once again in an unrevealed role.
But Amazon has already confirmed the star would be appearing as a guest actor.
A possibility of another reunion is also at hand, as Morgan’s Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, who wrote something on an Instagram post by Karl Urban that hinted he might just be coming back as Soldier Boy in The Boys season 4.
“Pour me a double… I’m on my way,” he wrote on the post.
But it might not be a literal implication. Representatives for Ackles stated that they didn’t have any detail to disclose at the time. So, we will see.
Kripke uploaded a behind-the-scenes picture from The Boys season 4 set, which showed actors Urban, Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso, and Tomer Capone flipping the bird to the camera.
“Welcome to the fam, @JDMorgan. We’re all SO PSYCHED to have you!!” the producer said.
Morgan Has Been Recruited for The Boys For So Long
Since January 2020, Kripke has attempted to get his longtime friend to engage in The Boys. At the time, the actor wrote on Twitter after the finale of season 1: “I’ll go play with that gang anytime.”
To which Kripke responded,” I’ll make you a deal. Season 3. I’ll write it, and if you’re avail, come shoot it!” Morgan then replied, “In a heartbeat.”
The issue is with the scheduling.
Ackles, who’s been in touch with Morgan, said in an interview with EW before season 3 that it’s difficult because of the star’s busy schedule.
“I know that there were some preliminary conversations of how and what and when and why that just didn’t work out with Jeff’s schedule. He’s a busy man, and everybody wants him to come on their show,” Ackles told EW.
Furthermore, Ackles confessed that Morgan would badger him for information on the show during his time as Soldier Boy in season 3.
“He was like, ‘Give me spoilers.’ And I was like, ‘No, stop it.’ He’s very convincing,” Ackles revealed.
Kripke also told EW that Morgan was handed an offer to join season 4, but he wasn’t sure it would be possible.
Morgan was revealed to portray a character in The Walking Dead: Dead City (Isle of the Dead was the working title), a spin-off of The Walking Dead, alongside Lauren Cohan. The show was set to shoot in New York, while The Boys was planned to be filmed in Toronto.
“Schedule-wise, I don’t know,” Kripke stated. “We might still remain star-crossed, unfortunately, because I did ask. We had a role come up, and my first question was, ‘Well, is Jeffrey available?’”
In response to EW’s interview with Kripke, Morgan wrote on Twitter in May: “I’ll make it work.”
And you won’t have to guess. He did! The Boys season 4 is now filming.
