This article will focus on the release date of The Boys Season 3. Amazon’s superhero series The Boys is adapted from a novel series of the same name. Ever since the second season concluded on 9th October 2020, fans have been on tenterhooks to get updated on the upcoming season. Well, it seems like your wait will be over soon, and your favorite superheroes will be back on screen. In this article, I have gathered and put down all the information about the release date of The Boys season 3. Moreover, the subsequent sections will also talk about the cast as well as character updates.
The first season premiered in 2019 and gained popularity in no time. The surprisingly amazing plot gives the unorthodox concept for Superheros. Unlike the other shows where the only motive of the superheroes is to save the world, The Boys is a totally different genre. The only thing that makes the show stand out is the concept of making The Seven into a dark and gruesome group of heroes that abuse their superpowers. “Never meet your heroes because once you do, you’ll see them for what they really are”. The previous line emphasizes the main theme of Amazon’s superhero show. So before we start, let us take a quick recap of the first and second season’s narratives.
The Boys: Premise
The Television series is set in a universe that consists of superpowered individuals. The superheroes of the Vought superhero team are mostly corrupt outside their heroic personas. Billy Butcher leads The Boys while the other rival group, The Seven is lead by Homelander. Season 1 followed the initial conflict between the two groups as The Boys intend on bringing down Vought and its corrupt superheroes. The conflict does not reach a conclusion, and the story continues in season 2. Alongside the ongoing conflict, we encounter a new problem as Butcher learns that Becca is being held captive by the Voughts. Followed by Butcher’s attempts to save his wife, Homelander seeks complete control.
In the finale, we see that Becca shows up on the doorstep of Billy Butcher and begs for help. The Boys decide to back up their lead, and Black Noir is left in a bad state after his combat with Queen Maeve. The last scenes reveal that the crippling of his girlfriend Stormfront has led to Homelander’s broken psychological state. Moreover, the concession of Ryan to Billy followed by a betrayal from Maeve has affected him to the core. This series of events will give the writers the freedom to explore some new characters in the renewal. Also, most probably, Black Noir will return as he used to do in the novels, which can result in a final showdown between him and Homelander.
The Boys Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of The Boys is most likely to be released by the end of 2021 or could be extended till early 2022. Soon after season 2 concluded, Amazon announced the renewal, but the release dates have not yet been officially announced. Don’t lose hope as the filming has already begun, and season 3 is going to be a bang on. The way season 2 concluded, there is a chance that Homelander will return stronger this time. According to fan theories, the storyline of the upcoming season will follow the twist revolving around Homelander and Black Noir. Most probably, it will also follow the same playbook as its preceding seasons and will consist of 8 episodes.
Cast and Character Updates
Kripke’s Twitter post already hinted that how is season 3 of The Boys going to open. Last year in October, the title of the very first episode was revealed to be “Payback”. Some prominent pieces of evidence from the comic books suggest that Payback is a reference to a group focusing on the newest addition, Soldier Boy. Some more new additions that can be anticipated are Blue Hawk which will be played by Nick Wechsler. Gunpowder, a member of the team Payback, will be portrayed by Sean Patrick. Katia Winter will be seen as Little Nina, Miles Gaston as Supersonic, and Laurie Holden as Crimson Countless. Let us wait for some official confirmation on the exact details. Till then, stay tuned.
