Amazon’s Prime Video TV superhero series The Boys is officially returning for a third outing.

With new cast members, familiar faces and a sneak peek thanks to the series trailer, it’s just a case of counting down the days.

Here’s everything we know about the super new series:

What is the release date for The Boys season 3?

The Boys season 3 release date is officially set for June 3, 2022. The first three episodes drop then, with the remaining five episodes dropping weekly every Friday after.

Who is in the cast?

The Boys — and The Seven — are back. That means Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko), Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk), and Tomer Capon (Frenchie) will return as the covert militia group fighting to keep supes in check with their woman on the inside, Starlight (Moriarty). It also means Antony Starr (Homelander), Jessie T. Usher (A-Train), Chace Crawford (The Deep), Dominique McElligott (Queen Maeve), and Nathan Mitchell (Black Noir) are also returning as members of The Seven, the world’s premier team of superheroes.

Claudia Doumit, who appeared as Congresswoman Victoria Neuman in season 2, will have an expanded role in season 3. Doumit and Colby Minifie, who plays Ashley Barrett, have been upped to series regulars. Cameron Crovetti, who plays Ryan, Homelander’s super-powered son, will also return.

Among the cast’s newcomers is Supernatural star Jensen Ackles in the role of Soldier Boy.  The Walking Dead veteran Laurie Holden will play Crimson Countess, a member of Payback.

Three supes have also been added to season 3 as recurring parts. Sean Patrick Flanery will play another member of Payback, Gunpowder. Miles Gaston Villanueva will then play a supe named Supersonic, Starlight’s ex-boyfriend; and Nick Wechsler will play Blue Hawk.

What is the plot for season 3?

Scarce plot details have been released, but if we were the speculating kind, it looks like The Boys will be dosing themselves up with Compound V – which provides any wielder with superpowers for 24 hours – to level the playing field with The Seven, Payback, and other Supes, like Homelander (leader of The Seven), who as the trailer confirms, is slowly descending into madness.

The Boys are going to have their work cut out for them.

Is there a trailer?

If the newly released trailer is anything to go by, we’re in for an action-paced treat. It looks like there’ll be renewed danger from Homelander and a truly shocking choice by made Billy Butcher.

‘That’s the dilemma: does Butcher become a superhero or a supervillain?” Karl told Entertainment Weekly of the superpowers reveal. ‘In order to defeat the monster, do you become the monster? For all the characters on the show, it creates a conflict and it’s fun to see who actually ends up on whose side.’

Exciting stuff indeed. Oh, and before you watch, be warned: It’s gory.

Will there be a season 4?

The show will seemingly have a fourth season, despite no official confirmation as of yet.

At this year’s SXSW, one of the show’s stars has let slip a very important detail on the dark superhero series’ fate.

Karl Urban has confirmed he will be busy filming the upcoming season in the last part of 2022. ‘I’m shooting The Boys through the end of the year,’ he said in an interview at Variety’s SXSW Studio.

And fans will be delighted to know, there is a spin-off series in the works too (hopefully).

The Boys seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on Amazon’s Prime Video. Season 3 streams on Prime on June 3, 2022.
