The Boys is Back For Season 3 Teasing More Conflict Between Homelander and Starlight
The third season of The Boys will launch with its first three episodes (of eight) on Friday, June 3. Other episodes will be weekly, starting the following Friday, through July 8. The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and series newcomer Jensen Ackles, based on the best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
Amazon describes The Boys as “a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes — who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods — abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought — the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. It’s the seemingly powerless against the super powerful.”
