‘The Boys’ Season 3 release date
Developed by showrunner Eric Kripke ‘The Boys’ is one of the gripping shows to be aired online that keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. The show is far from your typical superhero show. ‘The Boys’ is based on the New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson about how superheroes are just terrible. The superheroes do ethically questionable things while pretending to save the world.
Currently, there has been no official announcement declaring the release date of ‘The Boys’. As reported by “Entertainment Weekly”, season 3 can only premiere once the cast and crew are done with filming. Currently, the stars of the satirical superhero series are quarantining in Toronto for two weeks. They will begin the filming once their quarantine duration comes to an end on the set with the utmost safety measures, to help avoid the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Many shows have gone back to shooting during the pandemic and have found success in it.
Who to expect on ‘The Boys’ Season 3?
We can expect ‘The Boys’, Karl Urban (Billy Butcher), Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko), Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk), Jack Quaid (Hughie Campbell), Tomer Capon (Frenchie), Antony Starr (Homelander), Jessie T. Usher (A-Train), Chace Crawford (The Deep), Dominique McElligott (Queen Maeve), and Nathan Mitchell (Black Noir) to return on the season 3 of ‘The Boys’. Claudia Doumit, who played the role of Congresswoman Victoria Neuman in season 2, will have a bigger role to play in season 3. Claudia Doumit and Colby Minifie who appeared as Victoria Newman and Ashley Barrett respectively have been promoted to series regulars for the upcoming season.
We will also get to see some new faces like Jensen Ackles who is famously known for his role as Dean Winchester on the horror series, ‘Supernatural‘. He will be playing the role of Soldier Boy, an original superhero who fought in World War II. He then became the first super celebrity and a mainstay of American culture for decades.
Eric Kripke explains season 2 and what the future is for season 3 of ‘The Boys’
In an interview with “The Wrap”, showrunner, Eric Kripke was asked what the future holds for Butcher after he made the promise to take care of Ryan.
Kripke mentioned that the Butcher that we see at the end of this season would continue but with a vengeance. He is at war with himself. There is a part of him that is represented by Becca, Hughie, and Ryan. Another small part of them has humanity. And the other part of him is his father, and violence and rage and unprocessed anger. And those two sides of him are really at war in season 3 because he is furious. He further explained that he can not really be furious at the kid. So he is furious at Homelander and a mess. And those two sides really struggle in season 3.
He was also asked if Stormfront will be back in the season 3 of ‘The Boys’ to which he replied that she is not dead. She is ‘Stumpfront’ now. He refused to comment about whether she comes back but shared that she is forever going to be this kind of mutilated, stubby little Nazi. They thought it was the right punishment for somebody who so believed in Aryan purity. He further mentioned that Stormfront ages very slowly, so she has got a long time to be living in this messed up state.
On Twitter, the showrunner also shared that upcoming seasons would adopt the controversial Herogasm storyline. In case you are not aware, the miniseries had The Seven and most of the other superheroes meet up on a secluded island resort for a weekend of sex and illegal drug use.
