The Boys season three is looking like a possibility as fans of the comics are keen to see what happens next. The series, on Prime Video, follows a group of vigilantes who look to put some of the most egotistical superheroes in their place. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the potential season three.
Will there be another series of The Boys?
The second instalment of The Boys landed on Prime Video on September 4, 2020.
The superhero series is based on the comic book of the same name and it stars Karl Urban as the leader of The Boys – Billy Butcher.
Fans of the series will be pleased to hear a third season was given the green light before the season two release.
The news was announced back in July 2020, at a panel during the Comic-Con @ Home event.
Showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke said at the event: “Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit season three of The Boys.
“The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writers’ room and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material.
“We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing you a season two after-show, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Double entendre intended.
“Hosted by the incomparable Aisha Tyler and guest-starring the cast and crew, it’s a deep dive into how we make this insane thing.”
The Prime Rewind special aired on August 28, and season three can be expected in late 2021 or early 2022.

Who will be in the cast of The Boys season 3?
Season three is likely to see Urban reprise his role, along with Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Capon as Frenchie and Karen Fukuhara as The Female.
Meanwhile, the members of The Seven are also likely to return, including Antony Starr as Homelander and Erin Moriarty as Starlight.
Some new faces are also likely to appear as each season has introduced fresh characters.
Stormfront (Aya Cash), joined the cast of season two as a social media savvy.
Other members of The Seven include Chace Crawford as The Deep, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train and Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir.
Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles is also going to be joining the cast as Solider Boy.
Is there a trailer for The Boys season 3?
Sadly as filming for the new season is yet to begin, there is no trailer just yet for season three.
Prime Video will most likely drop the new trailer in the summer of 2021, a few weeks before the new series is due to air.
Jeffrey Frost, president at Sony Pictures Television Studios, told Deadline: “The Boys is unlike any other show on television.
“It’s incredibly entertaining and compelling and elevates genre programming to a whole new level.
“We’re very excited about season three as we know Eric Kripke and this incredibly talented cast are going to raise the bar even higher.”

“As soon as it’s ingrained in your head it’s so fun. We have a stunt co-ordinator who prepped us for it.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Fukuhara found out her character The Female will become a lover of musical theatre.
Kripke said: “We figured it out for season three what her favourite movies are, and she loves Hollywood musicals.
“That’s her thing. She’ll be watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers or Westside Story.”
When Fukuhara heard the news she got excited and said: “Amazing”.
