Jeffrey Dean Morgan On The Boys? Eric Kripke Says Maybe

While he’s quite busy these days with his role as Negan on The Walking Dead, there’s a chance that Jeffrey Dean Morgan might join The Boys. And this is a solid chance, not just a rumor. (We would never traffic in rumors, like Jeffrey Dean Morgan being in talks to return as the Thomas Wayne Batman in the DCEU Flash movie.)

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, The Boys: What’s The Scoop?

For those of you who don’t know, once upon a time, Jeffrey Dean Morgan was on a little show called Supernatural. Eric Kripke created Supernatural, so he and Morgan already have a working relationship. Morgan’s character, John Winchester, completed his arc in the second season. Kripke also left Supernatural after the storyline he created concluded, and would then go on to create shows like Timeless. He also adapted the comic series The Boys into its current incarnation as a Prime Video show.

Morgan enjoyed the series, writing on Twitter that he “literally inhaled” it. He also expressed an interest in appearing on the show.

Kripke responded, “Season 3. I’ll write it, and if you’re avail, come shoot it!” He has now confirmed in an interview with Collider that he was serious. He told them, “There’s one role we’re already talking about. He has to, uh, we have to like coordinate. Because you know, he’s on The Walking Dead, so he has another home. But we already talked about one role, and there might be a potential other that we’re talking about. But we are, just this past week we were literally texting back and forth about trying to figure out how to get him on the show. I don’t think it’s a done deal yet, but the will is there, and we’re both talking about it.”

So there’s nothing official yet, but Kripke has a couple characters in mind that Morgan could play. Feel free to speculate on whom exactly they could be; I have not read the comic series.

But I have seen the show.

Looking Forward To The Boys, Season 2

Kripke’s specification of season 3 is for a very simple reason. They already made season 2. And as we’ve already told you about The Boys season 2, the release date will be September 4 on Prime Video. Follow that link and you can not only see the first three minutes of episode one–skip to 47:33 in the livestream–but you can also see a clip of Aya Cash’s maybe debut. The You’re the Worst alum will be joining the supes as Stormfront. Hmm. That’s…a name.

3 episodes will be available on September 4; the 5 additional episodes will then each air weekly after that.

What’s your dream scenario for The Boys, seasons 2 or 3? Who do you think Jeffrey Dean Morgan should play on the show? Let us know in the comments or yell about it on social media.
