After an intense season 2 finale, the superheroes and the Boys are returning for season 3.
This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of January 8, 2021.
The Boys Season 2 ended in an epic battle and dropped big revelations that left the viewers with so many questions.
Fans assumed that season 3 is happening to give the answers we needed. The good news is they guessed right.
The Boys are indeed coming back for season 3. Here's all you need to know about the upcoming season.
The superheroes are indeed coming back, as The Boys gets officially renewed for season 3.
"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," Executive Producer Seth Rogen said at Comic-Con: At Home back in July 2020, as reported by Digital Spy.
The third season is already in early development, but when it releases will depend on how soon filming starts.
When asked about season 3's possible release date, Rogen said during Comic-Con: At Home:
"It's anyone's guess...hopefully sometime this decade."
If 'a decade' brings a lot of uncertainty to an avid fan like you, don't worry because showrunner Eric Kripke and the rest of the team are already "hard at work in the (virtual) writers' room."
"We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that's up to a microscopic virus."
The good news is, Jack Quaid is already getting himself over to Toronto, Canada, where The Boys is filmed, anticipating a return to filming after isolation at the end of January!
Season one premiered in July 2019, with the second season releasing on September 4, 2020, so season 3 is most likely to drop by the end of 2021 or early 2022.
The main cast members are returning for season 3.
They are Karl Urban (Billy Butcher), Jack Quaid (Hughie), Erin Moriarty (Starlight), Antony Starr (Homelander), Laz Alonso (Mother's Milk), Chace Crawford (The Deep), Dominique McElligott (Queen Maeve), Jessie T Usher (A-Train), Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko), Aya Cash (Stormfront), and Giancarlo Esposito (Stan Edgar), among others.
As for new faces, Supernatural's Jensen Ackles confirmed that he'll be joining the superhero lineup in season 3 through an Instagram post.
He'll be playing Soldier Boy, "the original superhero" who fought in World War II. He became "the first super celebrity and a mainstay of American culture for decades."
The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan could also be part of the upcoming season.
Creator Eric Kripke revealed that he has already discussed the role with Morgan, adding:
"I don't think it's a done deal yet, but the will is there, and we're both talking about it,"
There's also a chance for Love Sausage to return after Kripke teased a huge return for the eccentric character.
Warning: Season 2 spoilers below.
The Boys season 2 finale wraps up the battle between Stormfront, The Seven, and The Boys in an unexpected denouement.
Towards the end of season 2, we saw Stormfront's deepest secret became public: she was a Nazi. The revelation could greatly affect Vought's public image considering her rising popularity and her ties to the founder of the corporation.
Vought's PR team will have to work overtime to clear their image in season 3, which could also give way for Soldier Boy's return.
As for Stormfront, her fate remains unknown after the brutal battle that left her in an extremely bad shape. Stormfront's arms and legs were cut off, and there were burns all over her body after Becca's son Ryan used his laser vision to stop the superhero from killing his mom.
But the young superhero's efforts were left in vain as he accidentally kills his mom in the process.
We were all convinced that Stormfront was dead, but showrunner Eric Kripke confirmed she'd survived the season 2 finale.
How did she make it? The explanation will come in season 3.
As for The Boys leader Billy Butcher, he's bound to have a different life now that he has to look after Becca's son.
Before taking her final breath, Becca asked Billy to make sure that Ryan wouldn't blame himself for her death.
Season 2 also dropped another big revelation: Neuman has superpowers!
She is behind the head popping incidents and is responsible for killing Susan Raynor, and is behind the Congressional attack in episode 7.
The big question is: Is Victoria Neuman working for Vought or against them?
We will find out all about this and more in season 3.
Production for season 3 is set to begin this year, so there is still no footage available.
We are expecting to see the season 3 trailer to drop around mid or late 2021, depending on how soon filming finishes and when season 3 releases.
