The Boys season 3 will be out soon.
No, we’re not lying. After months of waiting for a confirmation, here we are. One of our favorites will be back soon, and we cannot be happier!
In July 2020, Seth Rogan said, “Because this show has fans and it is watched by people like you, they have decided to renew it. So, if you like The Boys, you’ve got more of it. Thank God.”
The show debuted on July 26, 2019. The narrative, storyline, comedy, and performances of the ensemble, notably Urban and Starr, have all earned critical acclaim. Amazon renewed The Boys for a second season, which will air on September 4, 2020. Ahead of the second season debut, the series was renewed for a third season in July 2020, with a release date of June 3, 2022, and two spin-off shows were ordered for September 2020 and December 2021, respectively.

About The Boys Season 3
The Boys is an Amazon Prime Video superhero television series created by Eric Kripke. Based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, which was first published by DC Comics under their Wildstorm banner before shifting to Dynamite Entertainment; it follows the eponymous superhero team as they confront superpowered individuals who misuse their talents.
What plotline will be followed?
Rogen made one vague comment about that: “Erik does have an ending in mind that he likes and is working towards.”
While not much is known, we know that the first episode is titled “Payback”, a reference to another group from the comics.
Developer Eric Kripke explains that Soldier Boy “has been a mainstay of Vought’s for decades…”
“We’re writing the history of Vought and how all the characters weave in,” he added.
“The season two finale is a genuine game-changer, altering the entire show’s trajectory moving forward. The Boys are no longer in hiding, but Homelander is still alive and well in Vought Tower. He had a sticky ending of his own though, so don’t be surprised if Queen Maeve’s blackmailing plan backfires at some point in season three.”
The question on everyone’s mind is about congresswoman Victoria Neuman, and Doumit spilled her thoughts about this: “I’m excited to really dig into what her backstory is and how she got to where she is. Also, I’m very excited to see her f**k some shit up, blow some heads up.”
Nathan Mitchell also commented, “It is so interesting because you have this forced alliance between people. Homelander doesn’t trust Maeve, doesn’t trust Starlight. Noir just fought Starlight, he definitely doesn’t trust Maeve.”
Kripke’s Views on The Boys Season 3
Kripke, in a recent interview, said, “We’ve been certainly a political and satirical show. We were really interested in exploring both the recent history of Vought, the company in the show, but also through that the recent history of the United States… We got really interested in the myths we tell ourselves, to feel that we’re righteous, really exploring America itself as a myth.”
“I’d say in previous seasons the boogeyman for you to be scared of used to be, ‘The terrorists are coming to get you.’ And now it’s sort of metastasized into, I think, a much more ominous, ‘Your neighbor is coming to get you.’ And that’s scary to me, how politics are turning us on each other. So, we want to explore what it means to be in America, really,” Kripke continued.
In another interview, Kripke teased, “I can tell that season three, without being specifically about COVID— we’re having a lot of conversations about the government response to COVID here in the States. And my guess is, you’ll see that metaphorically show up in one way or another.”
The Boys Season 3 Release Date
During seasons one and two, the time between the conclusion of production and the airing of the season was roughly nine months. That would imply a summer release in 22. And guess what else? Season three will be released on June 3, 2022, according to an announcement made on January 7.
The Boys Season 3 Cast
With no official word, we have to do with guesswork. It doesn’t take a genius, though, because we’re pretty sure that the following will be back:
- Karl Urban as William “Billy” Butcher – The leader of the Boys and former SAS operator who distrusts all individuals with superpowers.
- Jack Quaid as Hugh “Hughie” Campbell Jr. – A civilian member of the Boys who joins the group after his girlfriend Robin is killed by A-Train.

Important Update: The Boys Spin-Off
The Boys is getting a spin-off, and we are psyched!
The untitled series will be set in a school exclusively for superheroes and is run by Vought International. Here, the students compete against one another to receive the best contracts in the world beyond the college.
“Much like Mork & Mindy spin-off from Happy Days – which is an insane and true fact – our spinoff will exist in the Vought Cinematic Universe, yet have a tone and style all its own,” says Kripke.
“Michele and Tara are stone-cold geniuses, we’re thrilled to have them steer this ship and grateful to Sony and Amazon for the opportunity. We love this show and can’t wait for you to see it. Also, Baywatch Nights spun off from Baywatch, and it had vampires. Vampires,” Kripke continues.
It will be led by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. Craig Rosenberg, who wrote for the original series, was reportedly signed up for the spin-off but is no longer involved due to creative differences.
Not a lot has been revealed about the spin-off, but you can bet we’ll be on the lookout for everything that’s yet to come!
