Jared Padalecki confirms return to Eric Kripke's The Boys for season 5

Actor Jared Padalecki has accepted Eric Kripke‘s invitation to join The Boys for its fifth and final season, marking a reunion between the actor and the creator of Supernatural.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Padalecki expressed his eagerness to collaborate once again with Kripke on a project he deeply cares about.

Responding to the question about joining The Boys, Padalecki promptly affirmed, "The answer is yes."

"We have talked [about a role]. As a matter of fact, we talked today," Padalecki disclosed. "I think at this point in my acting life, I only want to work on projects that I really care about or with people that I really care about, and obviously Eric and I are indelibly connected forever."

Padalecki, who bids farewell to his role in the CW series Walker next week following its abrupt cancellation in May, emphasized his admiration for Kripke's creative vision and their longstanding professional relationship nurtured during their time on Supernatural.

"I mean, he created 'Supernatural.' He created Sam Winchester. He created Ruby [Genevieve Padalecki], who I ended up marrying and starting a family with," Padalecki reflected in the interview with Deadline.

"I adore him. I adore his humour. I adore him as a person, his storytelling. So I can't wait," he added.

While The Boys season 5 isn't scheduled to film until next year, Padalecki assured that he is ready and eager to jump back into Kripke's world whenever the call comes.

Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic books, The Boys shows the consequences of people with superheroic powers going rogue and beginning to misuse the capabilities. In Season 4, the Boys are in pursuit of exposing the truth regarding the organisation named the Seven and Vought, which manages them and conceals their dirty secrets.

The series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Aya Cash, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, Jensen Ackles, and Elisabeth Shue. Three episodes from the fourth season released on Prime Video on June 13. The new episodes will be released every weekend thereafter.
