Jeffrey Dean Morgan has reportedly joined the cast of Amazon Prime Video's hit series The Boys' fourth season. The actor is best known for his role as the antihero Comedian in the 2009 superhero satire The Watchmen. Morgan will be joining his Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, who recently joined The Boys in season 3.
The actor has been outspoken about his love for the show, which has led to fans expecting him to join the cast whenever a new season of The Boys is announced. The show's creator, Eric Kripke, had a Twitter conversation with Morgan in 2020 and asked him to be a part of season 3, to which Morgan replied, "in a heartbeat."
After being unable to appear in the third season, the actor recently confirmed that he will appear in the fourth season.
It's unclear whether Jeffrey Dean Morgan is playing a superhero or a member of The Boys at this point. The cast and crew have recently arrived in Canada to begin filming for the upcoming season. Kripke posted a picture of the script for Season 4's first episode. The new season is scheduled to debut in the first half of 2023.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan is perhaps best known for his role as the villainous Negan on The Walking Dead, a role he continues to play in the upcoming Walking Dead spin-off series Dead City, which has been filming in New York City.
Morgan will reunite with Eric Kripke, who created Supernatural and served as showrunner for the first five seasons, for Season 4 of The Boys. Morgan isn't the first Supernatural star to re-team with Kripke; Jensen Ackles, who previously played Morgan's son Dean Winchester, joined the cast of The Boys as Soldier Boy in Season 3.
He has played a wide range of characters in his thirty years in the industry, from tragic romantic partners in Grey's Anatomy to downright terrifying villains like Negan.
