What’s left of The Seven in The Boys?
As we now know from watching The Boys Season 3, all that is left of the Seven is Homelander, The Deep, A-Train, and Starlight.
Translucent dies in Season 1 at the hands of Hughie when Frenchie puts a C4 explosive in Translucent’s colon and Hughie sets it off.
In Season 2, Stormfront joins The Seven but gets roasted by Ryan when he first uses his heat vision, as Stormfront attempts to kill Becca which results in Ryan killing his mother. Season 3 sees Stormfront commit suicide.
Homelander kills Black Noir in Season 3 for not telling him Soldier Boy is his father.
Maeve has been depowered following her battle with Soldier Boy.
The last we see of Deep is when he kills the nominee for Vice President on behalf of Neuman.
A-Train suffers a heart attack while killing Blue Hawk but receives a heart transplant thanks to Blue Hawk.
Starlight officially joins The Boys at the end of Season 3 with it learned Butcher is terminal due to his use of V24.
Per the above header image, the last we see of Homelander is at a rally for Neuman where someone throws something at his son, so Homelander blasts the dude with his eye beams, which sees the crowd erupt with approval.
When will The Boys Season 4 premiere?
When The Boys Season 4 will premiere on Prime Video is unknown but Season 1 premiered on July 26, 2019; Season 2 on September 4, 2020, and Season 3 on June 3, 2022, so it could be possible that The Boys Season 4 premiers on Prime Video next June or July 2023.

The Boys Season 4 details
Per Kripke, The Boys Season 4 is said to explore how The Boys will take down Victoria Neuman once and for all, as well as save the soul of Ryan, and it’s also confirmed Season 4 will feature a new Black Noir, with Gen V also tieing into things.
The show also stars Tomer Capone as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, and Claudia Doumit plays Victoria Neuman with Giancarlo Esposito as Stan Edgar.
Prime Video describes the series as: 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.
The Boys is based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who also serve as executive producers, and 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.
