Bloody Diabolical! Amazon Prime’s The Boys is back with Season 3! With some of the original casts returning as well as some new faces joining Homelander and “The Seven”, things are about to get even more exciting.

This Amazon Prime original is based on the comic book of the same name that was written by Garth Ennis and co-created by Darick Robertson. It stirred a lot of interest from the general public with its political satire approach rather than the typical superhero flic (ahem, Marvel, ahem, DC).

Its previous two seasons were a huge hit and its third season is expected to be the same. The latest trailer just dropped last March, and the official release date, cast, and a supposed plot are revealed.

The Boys season 3 will air on June 3rd, 2022.

Be prepared for an all-nighter since all of the first three episodes of this season will be dropped all at once. The next five episodes will then be released every Friday of the week thereafter.

CAST

The original pool of actors will be returning to reprise their respective roles in the show. Of course, what good would these series be without the anti-hero, Billy Butcher (which is portrayed by Karl Urban)? In the trailer, Butcher is teased to have some kind of a superpower, which appears to be laser vision. Will he use this against Vought and Homelander? Or will he be part of the organization he hated the most?

On the other hand, other members of the ragtag army of vigilantes and anti-supes, the boys, will also be back. Characters like Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Kapon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara).

Meanwhile, supes are still leading the race to supremacy after the first two seasons of back-and-forth battle between Butcher and Homelander. With the Superman-ish leader, Homelander (Antony Starr), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell), A-Train (Jessie Usher), and Starlight (Erin Moriarty) banding together again to keep “The Seven” intact. Although The Deep (Chace Crawford) is still around, he is not yet re-invited to the group.

Perhaps another character no one thought would be a supe was congresswoman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit). Those who watched the previous seasons knew that Victoria was the one responsible for the unknown “head-explosions” throughout the series. Also, the outstanding actor Giancarlo Desposito will be returning as Vought’s CEO, Stan Edgar.

With only five members left on “The Seven”, this now leaves us with two vacant spots waiting to be filled. This is where the new main character, Soldier Boy, comes in.

Who is Soldier Boy?

Soldier Boy is the supposed first Avenger (just kidding). Although he seems to be molded from Captain America, he isn’t exactly like Cap. One similarity they have is that Cap and Soldier Boy are both the pioneers in their respective superhero teams. Another thing is that they also wield a shield both for protection and as a weapon. Soldier Boy will be portrayed by the Supernatural actor, Jensen Ackles.

Alongside Soldier Boy, a new band of new supes is also coming to town. (Read the list below for all upcoming superheroes)

  • Gunpowder (Sean Patrick Flannery)
  • Blue Hawk (Nick Wechsler)
  • Miles Gaston Villanueva (Supersonic)
  • Laurie Holden (Crimson Countess)
  • Kristin Booth (Tess, one of the TNT Twins)
  • Jack Doolan (Tommy, one of the TNT Twins)

Some returning characters not mentioned above:

  • Ryan, Homelander, and Becca’s Son (Cameron Crovetti)
  • Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie)
  • Stormfront (Aya Cash) – Although we saw Stormfront getting dismembered in the finale of the 2nd season, the show’s Director Eric Kripe said that she is still not dead. There is still a high chance we will be seeing Stormfront back in action in the 3rd season.

PLOT

As mentioned, Soldier Boy will be coming to the series. With him being the original member of The Seven, the story might revolve around Soldier Boy and Homelander colliding with each other for the leadership of the group. Soldier Boy surely won’t be a nice guy, and so is Homelander.

On the other hand, Butcher seems to be having his hands full with his newly acquired superpower. To add, Victoria Neuman is also coming out of the dark to showcase his true powers. It is safe to say that with these new superheroes, the third season will surely be a blood bath we’ve never seen before. Hopefully, Hughie and The Boys come out of this war alive. Well, let’s just hope that Starlight and Ryan continue to support them.
