The Boys season 3 was announced in October 2020 by its maker Eric Kripke. Kripke tweeted: ‘#TheBoys will return’. Its production has started in 2021. The rumored dates are late 2021 or early 2022. Recently Eric Kripke gave a glimpse of a possible episode of season 3 on Twitter- the episode titled ‘Herogasm’.
The Boys season 1 premiered in July 2019 and season 2 premiered in September 2020. The Boys is a satirical superhero comedy drama based on the comics of the same name. The Boys- comics was written by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The series doesn’t actually follow the comics storyline.
Death of A-Train
The Boys’s one of the disliked characters is A-Train aka Reggie Franklin. A-Train is one of the core members of The Seven. In the comics Hugie kills A-Train over to his girlfriend’s death. But in the live-action series Hugie saves him from dying. In season 1 ending A-Train suffers a massive heart attack and goes into a coma. His fight with Starlight made him weak. When A-Train returns from coma in season 2, Homelander removes him from The Seven. A-Train has lost his former speed and didn’t crack the top 20 fastest people list.
In the season 3, it is still not decided whether the makers are going to kill A-Train or possibly replace him. A-Train is played by Jessie Usher.
Spoilers and More
The Boys cast have given few ideas of the upcoming season 3. The possible cast members will be as same as season 2 except for Aya Cash’s Stormfront, because the character has been killed.
The season 2 ending opened up many doors for new villains to join. In the The Boys season 2, viewers have watched the deaths of many characters such as Rebecca Butcher (Shantel Vansanten) killed by her son Ryan (Cameron Crovetti). Billy Butcher is in the duty to save Ryan from father Homelander. The good vs the bad plot will continue, and possibly Billy Butcher will turn to the dark side.
Eric Kripke told Entertainment Weekly: “There’s a chance he’ll (Butcher)… really do the right thing, and there’s a chance that he’ll anguish over her death and plummet right over the edge.” Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk) added: “I can only imagine the rampage Butcher’s gonna be on in season 3. I think he’s gonna go to the dark side.”
The other storylines will show Hugie’s future adventures with Congresswoman Victoria Neuman, who is herself a secret supe. According to Kripke: “The poor guy is trying to fight a fight in a good way- in a legal way- and literally step one he finds himself working for a secret supe.”
Also the romance between Frenchi (Tomer Copen) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) will possibly heat up. Finally to sum up everything we’ll follow Laz Alonso’s interview with Entertainment Weekly: “The last Eric Kripke told us was, “You all just disband and I’m gonna have to figure out how to get to you guys back together again.”
