No, there is no confirmed release date. At least for now. The filming of The Boys in its third season started just a few weeks ago after the numerous delays due to the advance of the coronavirus pandemic, something that we told you and due to this important restructuring of the calendar, it seems that there will be no official announcements by the platform in the short term. As for when we believe this third season will be released, it is possible that Amazon opts for a premiere for the end of this year or early 2022, especially if we take into account the lengthy filming of this type of series. with so many special effects and locations.
Cast and crew.
Few surprises. In The Boys and its third season, we will have the return of Karl Urban (Billy Butcher), Jack Quaid (Hughie), Erin Moriarty (Starlight), Antony Starr (Patriot), Chace Crawford (Deep), Dominique McElligott (Queen Maeve), Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk), Jessie T Usher (A-Train), Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko), Tomer Capon (Frenchie), Giancarlo Esposito (Stan Edgar) and Claudia Doumit (Victoria Neuman). Aya Cash could return as Stormfront, showrunner Eric Kripke has explained that her character is not dead, so there are possibilities. The great novelty of the new batch of episodes is in Jensen Ackles, the Supernatural actor who will play Soldier Boy, the original superhero, a kind of classic version of Patriot.
“I think anyone who expects Jensen to come out as some kind of nice guy or hero from another era will be a bit disappointed. In the comics, I’d say he’s a somewhat clumsy and subservient superhero to Patriot. Since we’re writing him for the adaptation I’d say we’re talking about a star from the past, a key character in the history of Vought, kind of like a John Wayne to the western genre. He’s one of those guys that’s been around for decades in Vought history. He was a Patriot before Patriot, so even though he lived in a different time, he still has ego and ambition. It’s only different because he comes from another time, “concluded the showrunner himself, who already agreed with him in the aforementioned Supernatural. Will Love Sausage return? Seems that if. The character had a lot of pull in his cameo in the previous season, and the creators of the series have looked for a way to make him return.
Eric Kripke will serve as lead creative or showrunner, again with producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. For his part, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, and Pavan Shetty will also be executive producers of this season, which will feature the Kripe own scripts as head writer.
