The Boys season 3 trailer is officially here showing Starlight and Homelander reuniting at Vought International Headquarters for a press conference. Based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s graphic novels of the same name, the series is set in a world in which superheroes exist, but use their superpowers to live corrupt lives and act as shallow celebrity figures, most of which is endorsed by the business conglomerate Vought International. The Boys centers on former SAS operator Billy Butcher as he assembles a team of non-powered individuals to bring down the corrupt “Supes” and expose the truth to the world.
Karl Urban and Jack Quaid lead the cast of The Boys alongside Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Chace Crawford, Jessie T. Usher and Nathan Mitchell. Developed by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, the series has been a critical hit in its first two seasons for Amazon Prime Video and drawn in consistently strong ratings for the streaming platform, with plans for multiple spin-offs currently in the works. Production on The Boys season 3 was somewhat hampered due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, though with it having wrapped in September 2021, audiences now have exciting news coming their way for the show.
Amazon Prime Video has shared an official trailer for The Boys season 3. The video, in which Homelander and Starlight are reunite in Vought Tower in front of a group of reporters, ends with the revelation of season 3’s release date appearing to be set for June 3, 2022. Check out the reveal below:
Though The Boys season 3 trailer may not offer many answers in the way of what’s to come from the next chapter of the series, it does mark an interesting tease of what’s to come with the relationship between Homelander and Starlight. The season 2 finale saw Starlight reinstated to the Seven after the truth behind Stormfront’s past came to light while Hughie and The Boys were cleared of all charges levied against them, though Homelander was left largely defeated. Having engaged in a relationship with Stormfront and blackmailed by Queen Maeve into letting The Boys go with footage of his actions on the crashing hijacked plane in season 1, the leader of the Seven is currently in a position of having to calculate his next steps carefully.
Amazon has been very careful with reveals for what The Boys season 3 will entail outside of introducing a handful of new Supes with its Vought News Network videos and Jensen Ackles’ highly anticipated casting as Soldier Boy. With Kripke also having built anticipation for the new season’s adaptation of the “Herogasm” storyline, excitement is high amongst audiences for what appears to be the largest season yet. The wait won’t be long as The Boys season 3 is confirmed to be arriving on June 3, 2022.
