Filming for the fourth season of The Boys continues in Toronto, where some photos with old and new characters were taken.
The scene in question shows a gathering with Homelander ( Antony Starr ), which also includes the new superheroines Firecracker ( Valorie Curry ) and Susan Heyward ( Sister Sage ).
The group also includes Black Noir , despite being killed by Homelander in the third season. Well, showrunner Eric Kripke revealed last July that there will be a new character behind the mask, albeit still played by Nathan Mitchell . It will therefore be a second Black Noir , which will inherit the costume from the first.
As we know, in the new episodes there will also be Jeffrey Dean Morgan , while Cameron Crovetti – aka Ryan , son of Homelander – has been promoted to regular. The release date on Amazon Prime Video is not yet available, but we will keep you updated. Meanwhile, you can see the photos below.

The synopsis of the series
Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games) suffers a devastating loss at the hands of the reckless A-Train. His suffering from him turns to anger when he discovers that there is no legal recourse for those who suffer harm caused by superheroes. While trying to recover, Hughie meets a mysterious agent, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), who recruits him to join him in the search for a justice that regulates the behavior of Superheroes, who are not what they seem.
THE BOYS is a series that shows what happens when superheroes – who are famous as celebrities, influential as politicians and revered as gods – abuse their powers. At the center of the episodes is the struggle between the lack and the excess of power: The Boys embark on a heroic quest to unmask the reality concerning the Seven and the Vought, the billionaire conglomerate that manages the Seven themselves and their dirty secrets.
The team consists of Billy Butcher ( Karl Urban ), the Frenchman ( Tomer Capon ), Mother’s Milk ( Laz Alonso ), the Female of the Species ( Karen Fukuhara ) and Little Hughie ( Jack Quaid ).
Supergroup Seven Justice League spoof includes Patriot ( Antony Starr ), Abyss ( Chace Crawford ), Queen Maeve ( Dominique McElligott ), A-Train ( Jessie T. Usher ), Black Noir ( Nathan Mitchell ), Translucent ( Alex Hassell ) and Starlight ( Erin Moriarty ).
Elisabeth Shue plays Madelyn Stillwell , while Simon Pegg is Little Hughie ‘s father: a sensible choice, given that Hughie ‘s face – in the comic – was modeled precisely on that of the English actor. Also starring Colby Minifie ( Ashley Barrett ), Goran Visnjic ( Alistair Adana ), Claudia Doumit ( Victoria Neuman ), Patton Oswalt , Aya Cash ( Stormfront ), Shawn Ashmore ( Lamplighter ), Jensen Ackles (Soldier Boy ), Katia Winter ( Little Nina ), Miles Gaston Villaneuva ( Supersonic ), Sean Patrick Flanery ( Gunpowder ), Nick Wechsler ( Blue Hawk ), Laurie Holden ( Contessa Crimisi ), Frances Turner ( Monique ), Kristin Booth and Jack Doolan ( Tess and Tommy , known as TNT Twins ).
