Season 3 of The Boys will introduce three new superheroes to the cast. Amazon confirmed the third season before of the second season’s premiere. Following the overwhelming positive response to Season 1, it is unsurprising that the streaming service would announce a second series quite soon. Season 3 news is coming in thick and fast, and fans are hungry for a release date that has yet to be confirmed.
The upcoming season is now in the works in Toronto. Karl Urban reprises his role as Billy Butcher, Antony Starr reprises his role as Homelander, Jack Quaid takes the lead his role as Hughie, Erin Moriarty narrates her role as Starlight, Laz Alonso retells her role as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Capon reprises his role as Frenchie, Karen Fukuhara revisits her role as Kimiko, Dominique McElligott repeats her role as Queen Maeve, Jessie T. Usher Soldier Boy will be played by Jensen Ackles.
According to The Wrap, Season 3 will introduce three new Supes to the cast. Gunpowder is played by Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Blue Hawk is played by Nick Wechsler (Roswell), and Supersonic is played by Miles Gaston Villanueva (The Resident).
Despite the fact that no character descriptions for any of these new characters have been revealed, they will be recurring characters in the forthcoming season. To understand more about them and how they fit into the season, fans will have to wait for additional information.
Looking through The Boys comics can help you comprehend some of the show’s general directions. However, the series has already diverged from the comics in a number of areas, so it is unlikely to provide much information. Even the superpowers from the books aren’t directly copied into the show, so a different Gunpowder isn’t out of the question.
The plot following The Boys is likely the least entertaining portion of the series, so introducing other superhero characters to follow sounds like a decent idea. Whatever the case may be, it will be fascinating to see how Flanery, Wechsler, and Villanueva bring these new characters to life.
