Jeffrey Dean Morgan, best known for his roles on The Walking Dead and Supernatural, recently joined the cast of the fourth season of Amazon’s The Boys.

Morgan is set to be a recurring guest star, but details of her characters remain under wraps.

Eric Kripke

Most TV fans now know Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan Smith on AMC’s The Walking Dead, but fans of the long-running Supernatural series still remember him as John Winchester.

Fans are thrilled that Morgan is reuniting with Eric Kripke, creator of Supernatural and showrunner of The Boys.

Morgan’s John Winchester played a pivotal role in Supernatural Season 1’s storyline before becoming a recurring character throughout the rest of the series.

Eric Kripke spoke about his attempts to bring Jeffrey Dean Morgan on board.

“Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a superfan of the show, so he and I are talking. We’re trying to figure out something for season four,” said Kripke.

“Nothing finalized yet, but he and I are chatting and emailing and seeing if we can make it work with his busy schedule. So, stay tuned on that.”

The Boys

The Boys is finishing production on its fourth season shortly after the third season was released earlier this year.

The recent season saw Antony Starr’s Homelander fall further after Aya Cash’s Stormfront death.

As a result, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the boys decided to find a weapon to take down the Homelander.

With the help of Queen Mave (Dominique McElligott), the Boys found Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) long dead.

However, things aren’t as simple as they seem and the boys have to deal with a Homelander and a Soldier Boy determined to take revenge on those who betrayed him.

A Supernatural reunion

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who joins the cast, makes him the fourth Supernatural alumni to join the series.

The first is none other than Jim Beaver, who plays Defense Secretary Robert Singer and continues the homage to executive producer Robert Singer.

Jim Beaver has been with the cast since season one, and was joined by Jensen Ackles later in season three.

Ackles wasn’t alone, as his partner Gunpowder was played by former Supernatural host Gattlin Griffith.

The name may not be known, but Griffith’s character arc, an anti-christ child or half-human and half-demon, left a loose end in Supernatural.

Kripke kept the number of Gattlin Griffith, who fortunately was available to reunite with Ackles, playing the younger version of Soldier Boys’ teammate and mate.
