The third season of The Boys is coming in hot, with three episodes launching on Friday, June 3. New episodes will be available each Friday following, leading up to the season finale on July 8. The eight-episode season will stream exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. The premiere date was announced today during the final installment of the Vought News Network (VNN) digital video series Seven on 7 with Cameron Coleman, a promo series framed as an in-universe news-talk show.
The new season will introduce a number of new supers to the show, including Soldier Boy, played by Supernatural veteran Jensen Ackles, reuniting with that series' creator, Eric Kripke, who serves as the showrunner on The Boys.
"Season 3's fun because it's not just about Soldier Boy, but it's about the team he was a part of which is called Payback," Kripke recently told Collider. "And Laurie Holden plays Crimson Countess and there's a bunch of other heroes who are amazing. So, sort of seeing who was the Seven before the Seven. And what was life like for Vought? In the history of Vought, what was it like in the 60s and 70s and 80s? To dig into the history of the world, not just the present has been a lot of fun."
You can see the trailer, and the official synopsis for the series, below.
The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes—who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods—abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought—the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It's the seemingly powerless against the super powerful.
Season Three of The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Jensen Ackles.
