Amazon Prime hit show, The Boys is returning for season three.
Back in 2020 executive producer Seth Rogen said: “Because this show has fans and it is watched by people like you, they have decided to renew it. So, if you like The Boys, you’ve got more of it. Thank God.”
Thank god indeed. Bring on The Boys Season 3!
The Boys Season 3 Release Date?
Friday, 3rd of June 2022 on Prime Video.
They’re going to drop 3 episodes on that day and then release a weekly drip-feed of new episodes after.
The Boys follows the story of a group of superheroes who are trying to take down The Seven, a corrupt and powerful corporation. The first two seasons ended with the team essentially disbanding, so it will be interesting to see where season three picks up.
There’s no news on an exact release date yet but we can expect it sometime in 2022.
In the meantime, here’s everything we know about The Boys season 3 so far:
– The cast is returning for the third season with the exception of Karen Fukuhara who played The Female. It has not yet been announced if a new character will be taking her place.
– The showrunner for The Boys is Eric Kripke who also created Supernatural.
– The new season will be set two years after the events of the last one and it has been described as a “contemporary, culturally resonant superhero drama”.
– The plot for The Boys season three is still under wraps but we can expect it to be just as action-packed and dark as the first two.
– The Boys is one of Amazon Prime’s most successful shows so far so we can expect plenty of episodes in the new season – ten, to be exact.
As production on The Boys season three wrapped, the cast and crew took to social media to bid farewell to the series – with a warning for fans of what’s to come.
“Season finale.. Season premiere.. Same thing,” joked star Karl Urban in an Instagram post. The actor, who plays Billy Butcher in the show, also shared a photo of himself on set with his co-stars.
“That’s a wrap on The Boys season three,” wrote actor Chace Crawford, who plays The Seven member The Deep. “What an amazing experience it’s been to play in this world and with these people.”
Alongside the photos, both Urban and Crawford shared a teaser trailer for the upcoming season. The brief clip doesn’t give much away, but it does show that the battle between The Seven and The Boys is far from over.
The third season of The Boys will see a number of new additions to the cast, including Supernatural star Jensen Ackles. The actor will play Soldier Boy, a member of the original superhero team active during World War II.
Other new cast members include The Walking Dead veteran Laurie Holden, who will play Crimson Countess – a member of Payback, the supe team headed by Soldier Boy; and Miles Gaston Villanueva, who will play Supersonic.
Sean Patrick Flanery, known for his roles in The Boondock Saints and Dexter, will also join the cast as Gunpowder – another member of Payback.
The third season of The Boys is airing on June 3rd 2022
