While 'The Boys' is wrapping up with its fifth season, creator Eric Kripke assures fans the story is far from over as he has exciting plans for expanding the universe into new and uncharted territories.

AceShowbiz - The satirical superhero drama series "The Boys" has captured the imaginations of fans with its gritty and uncompromising take on the supe-hero genre. However, the saga between the villainous Homelander (Antony Starr) and the morally-gray supe-hunter Butcher (Karl Urban) will come to an end with Season 5, a decision announced by creator and showrunner Eric Kripke ahead of the Season 4 debut.

In a detailed interview, Kripke reveals that he had envisioned the end around the time he started writing Season 3. "Amazon took a minute to agree, and another minute for them to clear it in all channels so that we could finally announce it," Kripke shared. Now that the official announcement is out, fans can anticipate the show's trajectory wrapping up in a manner that fits the creator's vision.

Season 5 is currently being written, with an eight-episode plan set to begin filming in November 2024 through mid-2025. This last season promises to resolve ongoing conflicts and provide a climactic end to the Butcher vs. Homelander duel. But that's not the end of the "The Boys" universe.

Kripke emphasized that while the main storyline will conclude, there's still immense potential for spinoffs to keep the universe alive. "The Boys story is about Butcher and Homelander and these two planets crashing into each other and this particular story doesn't work without both of them. But there can be other stories and other corners of the universe," Kripke explained.

The spinoff series "Gen V," which has already been greenlit for a second season, and the recently announced spinoff "The Boys: Mexico" are just the beginning.

Hints from Kripke suggest more projects in the pipeline, albeit details remain under wraps. This means fans can expect a more vibrant and perverted universe that will continue to explore new characters and situations within the world of "The Boys."

Ironically, Kripke, known for his five-season format, noted that the number feels complete to him due to its structure. "I understand the movement of the introduction, the conflict in the middle, the low point - and the big finish. I just get it," he states, reflecting on why five seasons was always his target.

The universe of "The Boys" will thus live on even as the main series wraps up, opening the door for numerous intriguing narratives and ensuring that fans have plenty to look forward to in the years to come.
