The Boys Season 3: Everything you should know
Produced by Eric Kripke, ‘The Boys’ is a satirical superhero television series based on a comic book of the same name. The comic book was first published by DC Comics under its Wildstorm imprint and later transferred to Dynamite Entertainment.
The series follows the titular team of vigilantes who bring justice to corrupt superheroes. Most of these people with superpowers work for Vought International and call themselves Seven.
Originally released on Amazon Prime Video on July 26, 2019, the series earned an audience of 8 million in its first ten days, making it one of the most successful original shows on the stage. It has received critical acclaim for its humor, writing, story, and performance.
After two successful seasons, fans are wondering if they will get a third season anytime soon. Here is everything we have to answer that question!
When will The Boys Season 3 Release on Amazon Prime Video?
4 The Boys Season 2 premiered on September 4, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video, with the rounding on October 9, 2020. The second season consists of eight episodes with a runtime of 54–68 minutes.
As far as the news of the third season is concerned, here is what we know. On July 23, 2020, a third season renewal was announced, before its season 2 debut. The COVID-19 epidemic has affected the production schedule, but the weather finally began filming on February 24, 2021, with strict safety measures.
It is scheduled to wrap up in September 2021. A detailed post-production process is expected since the series uses visual effects. Although season 2 ended filming in November 2019, it was released only in September 2020.
If the same time applies to season 3, it is unlikely that we will ever get a new season before the end of 2021. Therefore, fans can expect Boys’ Season 3 to be released in late 2021 or early 2022.
It has also been reported that a spin-off prequel series works. The new show is for young superheroes at American College run exclusively by Watt International.
In this prequel series, the young “super” will appear competing against each other and testing their moral boundaries, as each of them tries to land the best contracts around the country.
