Morgan’s role in the series has not yet been revealed, but his casting marks his reunion with The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke, who he previously worked with while starring in Supernatural. Morgan is the latest Supernatural actor to be recruited for The Boys, following Jensen Ackles, who joined the series in the role of Soldier Boy in season three.
For Morgan, this casting has been in the works for quite some time — the actor took to Twitter in 2020 to share his excitement about the series, to which Kripke responded with a friendly offer to join the show for season three.
Thanks @JDMorgan for spreading #TheBoys gospel! I’ll make you a deal. Season 3. I’ll write it, and if you’re avail, come shoot it! Thanks for all the love, brother. #SPNReunion#TheBoystv @TheBoysTV @PrimeVideo #SPNFamily https://t.co/tI6A8UFPyV
