‘The Boys’ It is one of the most popular series today and Amazon has long since renewed it for a third season. We will still have to wait to see the new episodes, but to whet your appetite we are going to review everything you already know about the new episodes of this adaptation of the comic Garth Ennis y Darick Roberton.

The history

Victoria Neuman

There are no concrete details about the story of the third season at the moment, but obviously, it will have to continue with what we saw at the end of the second. Perhaps the most striking part is seeing Hughie collaborating with Victoria Neuman when the cake has been uncovered that she is the one who is making heads explode. In these new episodes, it will be time to know what your plan is.

For its part, Butcher He is in an unexpected situation having received forgiveness for all his crimes, but I doubt it will take long to get into trouble, as it is also clear that the death of his wife is going to take a toll on him.

Otherwise, Patriot it is sure to be unleashed even more after the “defeat” he suffered at the end of the second season. We already know that the superhero Soldier Boy, a kind of first-time version of him, will make an appearance and also that the relationship between the two is going to be very particular. And it is clear that in Vought they are going to do everything possible to overcome the setback suffered with Component V.

Further, Eric Kripke, creator and showrunner of the series, has advanced the following about the third season:

Season 3 is going to be fucking crazy. Even in the first episode during its first ten minutes there is a scene that I will not reveal anything about that literally every time we talk about it I cover my mouth. It is absolute madness. But we’re also going to keep digging into the characters, keep exploring and moving them forward, but fuck man, there are some very crazy things on the way.

The cast

In the absence of official confirmation, we can take the return of Karl Urban (Billy Butcher), Jack Quaid (Hughie), Erin Moriarty (Starlight), Antony Starr (Patriot), Chace Crawford (Deep), Dominique McElligott (Reina Maeve), Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk), Jessie T Usher (A-Train), Karen Fukuhara (Chemical), Tomer Capon (Frenchie), Giancarlo Esposito (Stan Edgar) and Claudia Doumit (Victoria Neuman).

Among the unknowns stands out the case of Aya cash as Stormfront, since his character ended up in very bad shape at the end of the second season. Yes, Kripke has confirmed that she’s not dead, so she could always reappear …

Among the novelties there is one that is worth highlighting: Jensen Ackles He joins the cast of the series to bring to life Soldier Boy, the original superhero, a kind of primal version of Patriot. Kripke, has commented the following about the arrival of the actor, with whom he had already worked in ‘Supernatural’ to ‘The Boys’:

I think anyone who expects Jensen to show up as a good time is going to be disappointed. In the comics I would say that he is somewhat clumsy and subservient to Patriot. As we are writing it I would say that we are talking about the history of Vought because he is like John Wayne. He’s one of those guys that has been around for decades in Vought history. He was a Patriot before Patriot, so it’s a different era, he has the ego and the ambition. It only feels different because it comes from another time.

The filming

It has not started yet and we will have to wait for the cameras to start recording. Kripke commented in July that they hoped they could start shooting in early 2021, but that “depended on a microscopic virus“Alluding to the coronavirus. There remains the doubt of a possible postponement, but for now is planned what takes place in Toronto from February 1 to August 12, 2021.

The trailer and the release date

As is logical, there is still no trailer and no images of the third season. And no release date, but there we should get used to the idea that most likely there will be no new episodes of ‘The Boys’ until 2022.

The reason to be pessimistic? The second season was filmed between June and November 2019 and then premiered in September 2020. That is 14 months from when they start shooting until the premiere and if the shooting of the third began in early 2021 in the best possible scenario. .

The Future Beyond Season 3

Kripke recently commented that in principle “the rough idea in my head is five seasons in total“, but he prefers not to pronounce himself definitively, since that was also his idea with ‘Supernatural’ and the latter has ended up reaching 15 seasons.
