Following the surprising events of season 1, The Boys season 2 picks up shortly after, with both The Boys and The Seven changing. Billy Butcher’s focus almost completely turned towards finding his wife and her son. At the same time, The Boys continued trying to take down Vought by any means necessary – including leaking Compound V to the public. Back at Vought, the arrival of Stormfront shook up The Seven and Homelander. She joined the team and eventually struck up a romantic relationship with Homelander. Stormfront was then at the center of the deadly season 2 finale, which set up The Boys season 3 to go in some surprising directions.
Amazon is fully committed to expanding the Boys universe; in addition to the upcoming season 3, Amazon is also working on a college-focused spinoff series. But, what is the status of the next season and the continuation of Butcher and Hughie’s story? Here’s everything we know about The Boys season 3’s release date, cast, and story.
The Boys Season 3 Renewal
Even before the release of season 2, Amazon confirmed that The Boys would return for season 3. The announcement was made during Comic-Con@Home in 2020. The new season will once again be eight episodes long. Showrunner Eric Kripke is back to lead the series creatively, while Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and more will continue to produce the series. The Boys season 3 began filming in early 2021.
The Boys Season 3 Release Date Info
Amazon has confirmed The Boys season 3 release date as well, with the show returning on June 3, 2022. The first three episodes of the show will air on this date, and the remaining five episodes will release weekly afterward. This includes the anticipated Herogasm episode debuting on June 24 and The Boys season 3 finale releasing on July 8. The summer 2022 release date for The Boys season 3 marks a return to season 1’s release window, although the weekly release format didn’t begin until season 2.
The Boys Season 3 New & Returning Characters
When The Boys season 3 releases in June 2022, it will bring back most of the show’s main cast members and introduce plenty of new characters. Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid’s Hughie Campbell, Erin Moriarty’s Starlight, and Antony Starr’s Homelander will continue to be at the forefront of the series. The Boys season 3 also returns The Boys’ Frenchie (Tomer Capon), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), as well as The Seven’s members Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie Usher), The Deep (Chase Crawford), and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell). Viewers should also see more of Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit), Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito), Ryan Butcher (Cameron Crovetti), and Grace Mallory (Laila Robins). The Boys season 3’s cast also includes several notable new additions, namely Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy, Laurie Holden’s Crimson Countess, and Miles Gaston Villanueva’s Supersonic.
The Boys Season 3 Story Details
The Boys season 3 story details are still generally a mystery, but the season 2 finale and casting provide plenty of information on what is coming next. This includes teases gleaned from the Seven on 7 with Cameron Coleman series Amazon produced. The Boys are expected to reform as they learn more about what Victoria Neuman is planning and Homelander potentially becomes a bigger threat. The Boys season 3’s story also will revolve heavily around the introduction of Soldier Boy and his superteam Payback.
