The Walking Dead veteran Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be joining the cast of the Amazon Original Series The Boys in season four as a recurring guest star. Details on his character are being kept under wraps for Morgan’s reunion with showrunner Eric Kripke. Morgan played patriarch John Winchester on Kripke’s Supernatural and marks as the latest to join after Jensen Ackles having boarded season three as Soldier Boy.
Morgan’s charisma, undeniable charm and versatility have landed him a variety of prestigious films and television series working alongside award-winning actors and filmmakers. Having worked nonstop the past few years, Morgan continues to capture the attention of Hollywood and has emerged as one of the industry’s most sought-after leading men.
Morgan can currently be seen in the hit AMC series, The Walking Dead, where he made his debut in the final episode of season six as the infamous antagonist, ‘Negan.’ This performance earned him a 2016 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series. He also won Best Villain at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards for his work in season seven. The 11th and final season of The Walking Dead is currently airing on AMC.
Following the conclusion of The Walking Dead, Morgan will reprise his role of Negan in the upcoming spin-off series Isle of the Dead. Along with Lauren Cohan reprising her role as Maggie, Isle of the Dead will follow the pair through post-apocalyptic Manhattan. Morgan and Cohan will also serve as executive producers on the series that is set to premiere in 2023 on AMC.
The Boys is a fun and 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. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought—the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It’s the seemingly powerless against the super-powerful.
Season Three of The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Jensen Ackles.
The Boys is based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who also serves as executive producers, and is developed by executive producer and showrunner Eric Kripke. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Phil Sgriccia, Craig Rosenberg, Ken F. Levin, Jason Netter, Paul Grellong, David Reed, Meredith Glynn, and Michaela Starr also serve as executive producers. The Boys is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios, with Kripke Enterprises, Original Film, and Point Grey Pictures.
