The Boys season 3 is coming soon, and you don’t want to miss it! The series centers around a group of vigilantes who set out to take down the corrupt mega-corporation The Seven. The first two seasons aired in 2019 on Amazon Prime Video. The plot revolves around one of the show’s main characters Billy Butcher uncovering the truth about his family history and his connection with The Seven.
In this blog post, we’ll talk about everything you need to know about The Boys season 3 before it airs!

The Boys season 3 release date lands in late 2021. If we’re following a similar pattern to previous seasons, though, expect it to arrive in the first few months of 2022 just to give everyone a little more wiggle room.

The Boys season 3 plot: What will happen?
Chatting to GamesRadar, Rogen teased: “Erik does have an ending in mind that he likes and is working towards.”
But that’s as much as he was willing to give us.
The season two finale is a genuine game-changer, altering the entire show’s trajectory moving forward. The Boys are no longer in hiding, but Homelander is still alive and well in Vought Tower. He had a sticky ending of his own though, so don’t be surprised if Queen Maeve’s blackmailing plan backfires at some point in season three.
The most important change of all though comes in the form of that final twist. Is congresswoman Victoria Neuman working for Vought or against them? Perhaps she’s playing all sides in a bid to take advantage of the chaos that will undoubtedly ensue.
Looking further ahead, it’s also possible that season three might sow the seeds (as it were) of the younger Boys spin-off, which is said to follow Vought superheroes in training at school.
The Boys season 3 Storyline:
One conversation Kripke has had with The Boys creator Garth Ennis does make us a little bit worried about Billy Butcher’s season three arc (via Consequence Of Sound).
“At one point, I approached [Ennis] and said, ‘It’s a different medium. It’s going to have to be different,'” Kripke said. “And he knew, because he had been through Preacher, and so I said, ‘Tell me what’s important to you.’ I had the same conversation with Darick Robertson, the illustrator, and co-creator, and Garth was like, ‘Just get Butcher right.'”
Of course, to get Butcher right means turning him into the show’s most tragic villain, if they’re sticking closely to his comic book arc. The show should start building towards that endgame in season three, so watch out for Butcher displaying any, um, genocidal impulses.
