The Boys Showrunner Teases “Awesome” Season 3, Announces Trailer Coming Soon
The boys very quickly established itself as one of Prime Video’s biggest assets after its debut, and the second season landed at a time when many counties were either in Covid lockdowns, or restricted where they could, or more importantly, couldn’t go, meaning a lot more people discovered the series in 2020. Now also an animated spin-off, The boys season 3 is coming soon, and showrunner Eric Kripke teased fans on Twitter with an update on where post-production on the new season is at and when a trailer is likely to arrive.
While reviews and reactions to the first season of The boys were good, the second season saw the praise for the comic book adaptation reach all new levels, and the show challenged the likes of stranger things as one of the most watched programs on all streaming platforms. Now, after two years of waiting, the third season of the series is already becoming one of the most publicized and anticipated of the year, alongside Stranger Things 4, The Mandalorian season 3 and the other giant Amazon, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
Earlier this month, Kripke revealed that the spinoff, The Boys Presents: Devilish, will premiere on March 4, bringing a whole new angle to the franchise, and now he’s tweeted again to give an update on the flagship show’s progress. He wrote:
“Okay here’s an update on #TheBoysTV since you keep asking and I’m buzzed. We finally mixed 4 of 8. A couple hundred VFX shots to finish but they’re awesome. I just close our first trailer today, it will be out in a few weeks. BE READY.”
The Boys Brings One Of The Most Violent Comic Book Franchises To Life And Fans Can’t Get Enough
The first two seasons of The boys recreated some of the bloodiest, most violent and craziest scenes ever seen on screen straight from their comic book source material. Although the storyline for the third season is mostly under wraps, there is plenty to suggest that everything that happened in the first two seasons will be like an appetizer for the crazy scenes that will unfold in new episodes.
In addition to series regulars such as Antony Starr’s Homelander, Dominique McElligott’s Queen Maeve and Jessie T. Usher’s A-Train, the new season will see the arrival of Supernatural star Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, an addition to the franchise that has garnered a lot of attention, with the character’s inclusion in the series having been rumored for some time before it was officially confirmed.
The new season of The boys will debut on June 3, and while it hasn’t been confirmed, the series is expected to follow the second season by releasing episodes on a weekly basis rather than all at once. With the final bits of post-production seemingly nearing completion and a trailer just weeks away, the hype for the return of The boys will only grow as we approach its June premiere date.
With Minions: The Rise of Gru arriving in theaters this summer, Illumination has given the franchise’s next installment a 2024 release date.
