Amazon Studios has announced the addition of Susan Heyward (Orange is the New Black) and Valorie Curry (The Tick) to the cast of the upcoming fourth season of The Boys. Heyward and Curry are set to portray the respective roles of Sister Sage and Firecracker, who are new superheroes that are joining the cast in the next season. Showrunner Eric Kripke took to Twitter to welcome them by teasing their characters as “some of the best & craziest ever written” for the series.
In addition, it has also been announced that Cameron Crovetti (Big Little Lies) has been promoted to a series regular for The Boys season four, which teases a potentially bigger role for his character Ryan. The character was last seen by fans during the third season finale, where he decided to stay with his father Homelander.

The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show retains most of the comics’ boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.
The Amazon Studios series stars Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, and Karl Urban, along with Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Nathan Mitchell, Claudia Doumit, and Colby Minifie.
Season three featured the addition of Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles as the infamous Soldier Boy, Katia Winter as Little Nina, Miles Gaston Villaneuva (Law & Order True Crime) as Supersonic, Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints) as Gunpowder, Nick Wechsler (Revenge) as Blue Hawk, and Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) as Crimson Countess.
