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

Morgan will be a recurring guest star, but his character details will remain a secret.

Eric Kripke

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

Fans are thrilled to see Morgan reunite with Supernatural creator and The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke.

Morgan’s John Winchester played a pivotal role in the plot of the first season of Supernatural before becoming a recurring character in the rest of the series.

Eric Kripke spoke about his efforts to involve Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

“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 will complete the fourth season production shortly after the third season release earlier this year.

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

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) who many believed was 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.

His name may not be easily recognizable, but Griffith’s character arc, an anti-christ child or half-man and half-demon, left an unanswered question in Supernatural.

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