Superheroes are the most celebrated characters in everything. Movies, literature, myths- you name it. (Although sometimes, a villain comes along, and we can’t help but fancy them desperately).
But overall, we’ve all had a crush on one of the superheroes, right? Batman, Superman, Iron man. Yum. We are all goners for the chosen ones who are destined to save the human race from the villains. (Even if, frankly speaking, the human race deserves it)
But what happens when these celebrated (and intensely fancied) heroes go rogue?
Well, you can have your answer in the popular new series, The Boys. The series couldn’t be farther from our notions of traditional superheroes. It’s all about how the superheroes go rogue and how the powerless save themselves from being exploited by these superheroes.
The themes imply how corporate ownership and capitalism affect the lives of ordinary citizens. Overall, this has been one hell of a ride.
Based on the comic book of the same name, The Boys is an American superhero series. It is widely available in all television streaming services such as Amazon Video and Amazon Prime. The series first premiered on Amazon in July 2019.
Due to the overwhelming response, it was renewed for a second season. Unsurprisingly, the second season was also met with humongous praise which led to the renewal of The Boys for the third season.
When is the third season of The Boys expected to release?
As we have mentioned before, Amazon has complete faith in its show and has decided to release a season 3 too!
Now, that we have been successful in saving the show, the question is when will the next season be released?
Well, this depends on several factors. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused disruptions in almost everything. The travel restrictions mean that the shooting will probably take longer than expected too.
However, we don’t have to be so disappointed. Yet. As far as unofficial announcements go, Rogen has reportedly said that ” “Hopefully sometime this decade.”
Seth Rogen is a recurring character in the boys, and he revealed some anticipated news at the Comic-con: At home. Back in July Rogen has said “It’s anyone’s guess,”
But you’ll be happy to know that the writers have started their due work with the plot. According to digitalspy.com, you’ll be pleased to hear that showrunner Eric Kripke and the rest of the team are already “hard at work in the (virtual) writers’ room”, adding: “We’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material.”
If that ain’t true…
Anyhow, based on the statements of the team, we can conclude that The Boys season 3 will be available sometime in 2021 to 2022.
Who can we expect to see in the third season of The Boys?
Well, this is certainly not an easy question and we don’t have a conclusive answer to that question just yet. But hold your horses, the one person we can say with absolute determination is Jensen Ackles from the Superheroes.
Ackles is all set to take the role of Solider boy who is the original superhero. Solider boy fought in the Second World War. He becomes the pioneer super celebrity with an immense influence on the American culture for the upcoming decades.
Ackles took to Instagram to announce the big news to his 8.3 million followers. He
announced it in quite a humorous and interesting way. “I keep wondering what I’ll do…. when @cw_supernatural finally ends this year. Then it hit me.” The actor captioned the video of him holding the script of The Boys season 3.
As for the rest, we’ve got:
- Chace Crawford playing “The Deep”
- Karl Urban is playing Billy Butcher
- Jack Quaid is the good old Hughie
- Erin Moriarty portrays Starlight
- Antony Starr is the Homelander
- Dominique McElligott is Queen Maeve
- Laz Alonso is the peculiar named Mother’s Milk
- Jessie T Usher plays A-Train
- Karen Fukuhara portrays Kimiko
- Aya Cash plays the character of Stormfront
- Giancarlo Esposito plays the part of Stan Edgar
There were also rumors of Jeffery Dean Morgan joining the cast. The Walking Dead hero was speculated to have negotiated the role with Kripke. But so far, we haven’t had the news confirmed with either of them.
What should we expect from The Boys: season 3?
About the plot of season 3, Rogen has given us no conclusive pointers. “Erik does have an ending in mind that he likes and is working towards,” Rogen revealed.
But that’s pretty much what we got out of the creative team. Tragic, we know. The final episode of season 2 totally caught us by surprise.
In fact, it changed the trajectory of the entire show, leading it in a completely different direction. On one hand, The Boys aren’t hiding anymore. On the other hand, Homelander is revealed to be still alive. Hiding in Vought Tower, Homelander had an interesting ending of his own. So, maybe Queen Maeve’s plan would come crumbling down at some point in season 3 too.
Of course, there is also the possibility that season three will give us an insight into how Boys spinoff originated. The series follows the story of a younger version of Boys in Vought school, where they received Superhero training.
Given all the news and speculations, we can conclude that The Boys season 3 is definitely in the early process of creation. The writers are working their best, as much as they can be given the pandemic.
The release of season 3, however, ultimately comes down to how soon the shooting can start. But, with the travel restrictions and all, there are numerous challenges for shooting. So for now, all we can do is wait and watch.
The first two seasons are available for us to watch again (for days when we get too frustrated waiting for the next season).
But then again, patience is a virtue. Hang on guys, we are in this together!
