The cast and crew behind the Emmy-nominated TV series, adapted from the comic book of the same name, took to social media to post cryptic photos and captions.
Jack Quaid, who plays Hughie, posted a photo to Instagram alongside The Butcher actor Karl Urban with the caption ‘it begins’.
The 30-year-old actor also posted a picture of himself on an airplane, writing: ‘Ah s**t, here we go again. #season4.’
Homelander actor Antony Starr and The Deep actor Chace Crawford also posed for a selfie together while travelling, with Starr posting the pictures to his Instagram page with the caption: ‘Travel time…Wonder what that means…’
Starr has since posted a photo with Crawford as well as bodybuilder Jeremy Potvin while in Toronto, where the previous three series of the show have been filmed.

He said: ‘Yeah, we’re starting, I think August 22, we’re going to be starting season four.
‘So I’m getting back, getting my Butcher back on, and I can’t wait.
‘It’s a fun gang to play with, we work hard and play hard, and I can’t wait to see where they take the characters from where we leave them at the end of this season.’
