The spin-off premiered on September 29, 2023, on Amazon Prime Video. The other credits of Kripke, who is best known as the creator of ‘Supernatural,’ include ‘The Boys Presents: Diabolical,’ ‘Timeless,’ ‘Revolution,’ ‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls,’ etc.

The cast of the fifth season may only get announced after the release of the fourth season.

Usher (Reggie Franklin/A-Train), Laz Alonso (Marvin T. “Mother’s” Milk/MM), Chace Crawford (Kevin Moskowitz/The Deep), Tomer Capone (Serge/Frenchie), and many more are confirmed to feature in season 4.
