The Boys, a satirical and quite violent TV show that’s breaking almost all the stereotypes we have ever known about the superhero genre is closing in with its third season on Amazon Prime Video.
The show debuted in the summer of 2019, and it received critical acclaim for its writing, humor, and performances of the cast, particularly Karl Urban as Billy Butcher and Antony Starr as the vicious villain Homelander.
The second season debuted in September 2020, and the third season is definitely on the way, with the release date still TBA. While we still wait for the official premiere date, showrunner Eric Kripke now opened up about what Season 3 is going to be about:
“Mediation on toxic masculinity. This season is about what is happening in our world, as usual. We found a way to delve even deeper into the characters, and we really pushed them all to their limits.”Eric Kripke for TV Guide Magazine’s Sci-Fi & Fantasy Special Collector’s Issue (via TV Insider)
The fans are expecting quite the wild ride in Season 3. Many new characters will join, mainly Supes. Jensen Ackles will join as Soldier Boy, a parody of Marvel’s Captain America, while Laurie Holden will join as Crimson Countess, a parody of Marvel’s Scarlet Witch. Nick Wechsler as Blue Hawk, Miles Gaston Villanueva as Supersonic, Sean Patrick Flannery as Gunpowder, and Kristin Booth and Jack Doolan as siblings Tessa and Tommy aka TNT Twins will also join the show in the upcoming season.
The Boys is starring Urban, Starr, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, and Karen Fukuhara.
