Amazon Prime’s prime series The Boys is returning to the screens for the 3rd season with its embezzling cast and overarching story thread. Created by Eric Kripke, this superhero drama movie will make its long-awaited return pretty soon with another season on the trot.
The Boys first started streaming on the platform in July 2019 with its first season that comprised of 8 episodes. It achieved humongous success and its second season released in 2020 received an even better response. The producers of the show expect the series to remain consistent as it adds another chapter to the story. Let’s talk about The Boys season 3 release date, cast, and more.
The Boys Plot
The series The Boys is a satirical take on the superhero genre that we’ve been seeing all these years. Superheroes are considered to be good people, saving humanity and punishing villains. However, The Boys presents its viewers with the dark side of superheroes and some of their bizarre elements.
The main superheroes of the show include Homelander, Starlight, Queen Maeve, A-Train, etc. Meanwhile, the other faction that wants to expose these fake superheroes consists of William Butcher, Huge Campbell, Mother’s Milk, Frenchi, and Kimiko.
The main characters of Billy Butcher and Hugh Campbell fall victim to the Seven’s exploits, however, because of their clout, they don’t get justice. So they decide to form their own anti-superheroes group comprising of people like them and term it as “The Boys”.
With the clear goal in mind, they go to great lengths to expose these people, even killing a few in the day. Their main target is Homelander who is despised by Billy because he raped his wife. Meanwhile, Campbell hates A-Train because he accidentally killed his girlfriend. All of them have some motive and they want to expose the Seven to the world.
