Hold onto your hats, because The Boys is coming back for another season on Amazon Prime Video.
The Spice Girls are back to fight against the despicable Homelander and the rest of The Seven, and there’s a new supe on the block – Soldier Boy.
We’ve flown around the net with our laser eyes to round up everything we know to get you prepared for season three – keep on reading to find out more.
The Boys season three release date
The Boys hasn’t yet announced an expected release date for season three. However, we can hazard a guess as to when it will be.
Jack Quaid – the actor who plays Hughie – confirmed in an Instagram post that he was on the way to Toronto to start filming – with two weeks of quarantine beforehand of course. That means that by now, filming will have already kicked off.
According to a production listing from the industry union website IATSE 83, filming is supposed to end in August of this year. However, with a global pandemic on, delays may end up happening if someone tests positive for COVID.
In addition, the gaps between filming and airing for previous seasons have been around nine to ten months. Taking all that into consideration, we expect to see season three of The Boys air in early 2022.
Is there a trailer for season three of The Boys?
As filming is currently underway, there’s no trailer for season three of The Boys. However, you can relive the glory of season two with the trailer below:
What is the plot for the next season?
Spoiler warning for season 2 of The Boys. If you’re not all caught up on the plot, don’t scroll any further.
Season two of The Boys was explosive, to say the least. The next big bad of The Seven – Stormfront – was left literally in pieces after Ryan (Becca and Homelander’s son) used his superpowers on her to try and protect his family.
Sadly in the process, Becca (Butcher’s wife) was caught in the crossfire. Fortunately, Butcher stepped in and took Ryan away into protected custody, out of the clutches of Stand Edgar, Homelander and Vought.
However, its important to note that Stormfront is not dead, and may still be being hidden somewhere. We’ve definitely not seen the last of her.
Meanwhile, it was revealed that politician Victoria Neuman was the secret supe who’d be been blowing people’s heads up all over the show. It appears she’s after ultimate power – but where do her loyalties lie, considering she was so outspoken against Vought and seems to be working with Hughie?
A-Train is back in The Seven (as is Starlight), but The Deep missed out once again. Showrunner Kripke revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that The Deep now has a vendetta against The Church of the Collective, and will be spending most of season three plotting his revenge.
Hughie and Starlight are also back together – but with The Seven now more dangerous than ever considering that Homelander knows half the team is against him, we imagine problems will stir in the relationship.
Speaking of The Seven, all eyes are now on the replacement for Stormfront. This has confirmed to be Soldier Boy, played by Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles. Soldier Boy is a supe that’s been around since WW2, and will be brought in by Vought to help raise public morale for superheroes once again after the PR disaster of revealing Stormfront’s Nazi origins.
Eric Kripke revealed in an interview that Soldier Boy will feature “sex, violence and swearing” – so expect him to be just as diabolical as other members of The Seven.

Finally, we still don’t know the origins and mystery surrounding Black Noir. We won’t reveal the big spoiler for the comics, but we wonder if the show will take the same direction, or completely deviate. We may find out more in season three.
