The Boys Season 3

The craziest and rivalry superhero groups are back! The Boys Season 3 will be hitting your screens in no long time. Here’s everything relevant to know.

The Boys is an American superhero web series based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Eric Kripke is the developer of this show, created particularly for Amazon. It premiered on July 26, 2019. Since then, critics have been praising it well for its storyline, humour, writing, and remarkable acting, especially that of the two leads, Karl Urban and Antony Starr. Season 2 landed on Sept 24, 2020, and fans can’t wait any longer for The Boys season 3.

The show is set in a universe where superpowered individuals are considered heroes. Vought International, a powerful organization, owns these corrupt and arrogant heroes. This corporation markets and monetizes them. The plot focuses on two superhero groups. The first include The Seven, Vought’s premier superhero team led by Homelander. Others are the titular Boys, a group of vigilantes with Billy Butcher as their leader. They are set out to take down corrupt superheroes who abuse their superpowers.

The Boys Season 3 Release Date

It was July 23, 2020, when Amazon officially announced the show’s renewal for its third season. The filming commenced on February 24, 2021. Like many others, this series also faced delays and other issues due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The filming is going on smoothly now and we wish for no more delays to interrupt. It is scheduled to conclude in September 2021. Below is the tweet by Eric Kripke on the first day of filming.

Eric Kripke revealed on October 30, 2020, season 3 will adapt the miniseries comic book, ‘Herogasm’. He further stated that it is “the craziest dailies he has ever seen” and that “people are not ready to watch it“.  Having enough time left in that, there hasn’t been any official release date yet. So we are predicting, at what we are an expert, that we’ll get the season anytime by mid-2022.

Is there any Episodes or Trailer update yet?

It’s a lucky yes if you’re asking for an episode update. However, nothing much is revealed yet as it would be too soon. Season 3 will not comprise the usual eight episodes. Rather it is official that there will be nine episodes in all. The first episode is titled, “Payback“. Talking of the ‘Herogasm‘ adaptation, it’ll lead the season from episode six, which has the same title.

As for the trailer, we shouldn’t expect it right now. C’mon, it’s only been halfway through filming. It would be quite early if you ask for a trailer at the moment. Well, we’ll make a prediction for that too. If all goes smoothly, the trailer will be released in November/ December this year or at the starting of 2022.

What plot will the third season follow?

Spoilers ahead!

The Boys Season 2 was quite a spine-chiller for all the fans. Butcher faced the death of Rebecca and that too by her only son, Ryan. Karl Urban (Billy Butcher) expressed his feelings, “Butcher’s in a devastated place. He has definitely lost the love of his life. It was some of the most intense, heavy experiences that I’ve had on any set.” So we’ll be seeing him in a dark place, completely heartbroken.

Coming to the Soldier Boy, we believe that he would be the main focus of Season 2. As per the comics, he’s a very popular icon at the time of World War 2. Consider him as Marvel’s  Captain America of ‘The Boys’ and there are many factors in support of that. Especially that he has short hair and remains clean-shaven. While the central plot of Season 3 remains under wraps, below are some severe revelations by the two lead stars.

Apart from that, Eric Kripke has given a lot of insights for the third season. He revealed Stormfront is still alive and that Starlight will become a rising star of The Seven. More importantly, he also teased that Black Noir may take off his mask! Fans can’t be more excited for Season 3 after knowing this. Also, Antony Starr revealed about Homelander that “He’s a Homicidal Maniac… he’s totally betrayed, insecure and emasculated. He’s been opened up and emotionally burned.” It seems we’ll be seeing him as an explosive.
