A release date has been set for The Boys Season 3.
As revealed during an in-Universe What News Network broadcast, The Boys is back on Amazon starting June 3 — nearly two years after The Boys last aired.
The first three episodes drop after that, with the remaining five episodes dropping weekly every Friday thereafter. The potentially-controversial “Herogasm” episode will be the fifth episode of the season.
The first season made all eight episodes available to stream immediately on Prime Video, while the second season opted to go weekly after the release of the initial batch of three episodes.
The Boyz Season 3 will see several new supe join the fray. Gunpowder, Blue Hawk and Supersonic will appear in the 2022 run, while The Walking Dead’s Laurie Holden is set to debut as the Crimson Countess, essentially Watt’s answer to Marvel’s Scarlet Witch.
The Boys — and whoops, for that matter — have a lot to deal with this year in the wake of The Boys Season 2 ending. While Watt has gotten his leg back after a series of corporate scandals, there’s now a head-popping Big Bad in the shape of Victoria Newman to potentially tackle in a third season. Worse yet, she now has an unknown Hughie working with her.
Then there’s the body count: Not only was Stormfront burned to a crisp, but Billy the Butcher’s wife, Becca, was accidentally killed by her super-powered son, Ryan. Expect a lot of goop in the upcoming season — and other NSFW scenes. Showrunner Eric Kripke has already promised that the show will adapt the orgy-heavy “Herogame” arc from Garth Ennis’ comics.
It doesn’t take long to wait until The Boys are back on our screens. Meanwhile, watch the best shows on Amazon Prime and the best movies on Amazon Prime.
