The Boys Season 3 Will Tease Untitled Spinoff Show With Some References

Season 3 of Amazon’s hit show The Boys will reportedly tease an untitled spin-off show, along with having subtle references within the show; as stated by the developer Eric Kripke. The Boys is an American superhero series developed by Kripke for Amazon Prime Video. Based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the series follows the titular team of vigilantes as they combat super powered individuals who abuse their abilities. The series stars an ensemble cast that includes Karl Urban (William "Billy" Butcher) , Jack Quaid (Hugh "Hughie" Campbell Jr.), Laz Alonso (Mother's Milk), Tomer Capon (Frenchie) and Karen Fukuhara (the Female) as the protagonists, while Antony Starr (Homelander), Erin Moriarty (Starlight), Dominique McElligott (Queen Maeve), Chace Crawford (the Deep), Jessie T. Usher ( A-Train) and Nathan Mitchell (Black Noir) as members of the "Seven", an official superhero group run by the conglomerate Vought International, the reason behind the “Supes”. That is, Vought International created compound-V, the compound that gave the Supes/Seven their powers.

The Boys Season 3


Premiering on Amazon Prime on July 26th, 2019, the first season of the series follows the conflict between members of the Boys and the Seven, with Compound-V being the heart of many battles. Butcher ‘s hatred towards the Seven in particular, has stemmed from the belief that Homelander, the leader of the Seven, is behind the disappearance of his wife, Becca. Both the groups see an addition to their members in the form of Hughie, who joins the Boys, and Annie as a fresh-faced member of the Seven. Annie, as it turns out, becomes suspicious of the group after learning of their actions and motives. To make things complicated, Annie and Hughie develop feelings for each other without knowing of the other’s affiliations.

The season ends with Compound-V, being listed as a controlled substance by the Pentagon and the Boys declared as outlaws. To add to the drama, Homelander takes Butcher to see his wife, Becca, who as it turns out has been raising her and Homelander’s son in secret all this while. When confronted with the hard truth that his wife has been raising his bitter enemy’s son, Butcher is left in a state of total shock.

The Boys Season 3


The second season premiered on 4th September 2020, and dealt with The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Seven, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought in the aftermath of season 1. In hiding, Hughie, Mother's Milk, Frenchie and Kimiko try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher disappearing out of nowhere. Meanwhile, Starlight must cement her place in The Seven as Homelander targets taking complete control. His power, however, is threatened with the addition of Stormfront, with an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat comes to the forefront and creates trouble as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation's chaos. We also see Homelander forcing himself into the secluded facility Becca(Butcher’s wife) and Ryan (Homelanfer’s son) are living in so he can become a father figure to his son and teach him about his powers.

The season ends with Ryan accidentally killing Becca, when Stormfront attacks them. He is however forgiven by Butcher when the boy chooses to be with him instead of Homelander.

The Boys Season 3


The third season will reportedly tease the upcoming spinoff show, inspired by the comic book series’ G-Men, having subtle references within the show. The G-Men comic book storyline follows a rather twisted version of Professor X, John Godolkin, who kidnaps children and takes them to his training facility/school in upstate New York. It will center on a Supe college run by Vought International and be full of the next generation of heroes competing for contracts. The comics saw Vought-American ultimately portray the G-Men as outcast heroes due to Godolkin's perverted practices.

Season 3, is reportedly set to adapt the comics’ Herogasm storyline, which will see Homelander and the members of the Seven travel to an island resort and engage in a very hedonistic weekend under the false premise that they are fighting an alien invasion. The Boys' college spinoff recently added Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, and Maddie Phillips to its cast.
