Season 3 will have fans freaking out, according to Antony Starr, who portrays Homelander on Amazon’s The Boys. Homelander is the series’ largest heroic homicidal hypocrite. Season 2 of The Boys outperformed some of Netflix’s most popular shows in terms of viewership, thanks in part to the series’ subversion of several superhero stereotypes. Season 2 ended with several of the major characters taking new options, and season 3 is presently in production.
Homelander was blackmailed by Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) with images of the terrifying plane disaster from season one. Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Ryan (Cameron Crovetti), and Starlight (Erin Moriarty) were saved from Homelander’s fury because to Maeve’s bravery.
The Seven welcomed Starlight and Queen Maeve back, and Starlight’s reputation was restored. Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) left the Boys to join Victoria Neuman’s (Claudia Domit) campaign, blissfully unaware of Neuman’s own evil deeds. Every one of these characters will return in Season 3, as well as new ones like Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) and Crimson Countess (Laurie Holden).
In a recent interview with TV Line, Starr expressed his excitement for Season 3. Starr characterised Season 3 as “hands down one of the most delightful seasons of television I’ve had the good fortune of being involved with!” without giving any storyline information.
Starr’s passion for Season 3 is evident, making the long wait for the third season bearable. The cast and crew of The Boys have done an excellent job at leaking details from the set. From set photographs suggesting an in-universe Dawn of the Seven film to actor Laz Alonzo (Mother’s Milk) teasing that The Boys season 3 will be three times bloodier than season 2, there’s a lot to look forward to.
What I like about The Boys is that it isn’t scared to take risks, and the lines between good and evil are constantly blurred. The Boys depicts a realistic world with superheroes who all have their own goals in mind. Starr’s forecast that season 3 will have fans freaking out seems to be the understatement of the year, given all of the excitement and photographs from filming thus far.
