The long-awaited third season of the popular, satirical, and quite unhinged superhero series The Boys finally has a release date. Amazon Prime Video revealed in the first look video that Season 3 is set to premiere on June 3, 2022.
We live in a time when a lot of superhero movies and tv shows are coming out. Several of them every year. Well, during that time, one man, named Eric Kripke, best known as the creator of the Supernatural TV series decided to adapt the violent, R-rated comic book The Boys, which is something we rarely see in the superhero genre.
The Boys follows the titular group of people which is planning to expose the Seven, the superhero group, parody of Justice League, that known in the public as a superhero team, but they’re actually a group of violent supervillains, particularly their leader, Homelander (villain parody of Superman), who raped the wife of Billy Butcher, leader of the Boys.
The first season was released in July 2019 on Prime Video, and it received critical acclaim from the critics and audience, particularly because of Karl Urban’s performance as Billy Butcher and Antony Star’s performance as Homelander. The season followed the beginning of the titular group, and the story of Hugh Campbell and Annie January, a member of the Seven who’s known as Starlight.
The second season premiered in September 2020, and it focused on the storyline which revealed that Billy Butcher’s wife, who was presumed dead, actually gave birth to Homelander’s child. The season also introduced us to Stormfront, another supervillain who was maybe even worse than ruthless Homelander.
The third season is set to introduce Soldier Boy, played by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles, and Crimson Countess, played by Laurie Holden. Check the first look and official synopsis of the third season down below:
“The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven”, and their formidable Vought backing.”
