The Boys Season 3 Begins Filming Next Week | Screen Rant

Shortly following the release of season 2, The Boys team will return to production next week in Toronto to film season 3. This R-rated superhero satire quickly became a smash hit and a critical success rising to be one of Amazon’s most-streamed shows in 2019 and 2020. Based on the comic series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys ensemble cast includes Jack Quaid, Karl Urban, Anthony Starr, and Erin Moriarty.

The Boys was renewed for a season 3 prior to its second season even airing, demonstrating how effective the show’s smart and super dark humor is. Relying on over-the-top violence, The Boys follows a group of vigilantes who are trying to overcome a team of corrupt superheroes. The show is endlessly entertaining and keeps audiences guessing. Season 2 was filled with plenty of twists and ended with the beloved team of underdogs splitting up, which sets up season 3 to be highly anticipated. In the upcoming season, The Boys’ Captain America parody, Soldier Boy played by Jensen Ackles, will be introduced as well as the controversial Herogasm.

On Twitter, showrunner Eric Kripke announced that The Boys season 3 would kick off production next week. The cast and crew arrived in Toronto and were sent into a strict two-week quarantine before returning to set. Following the quarantine, if The Boys team does not encounter any severe setbacks due to COVID-19, they should wrap production by late spring.

Following The Boys season 2, fans theorized the medley of directions the show could go. Obviously, the central question is how and if Billy Butcher will reunite the group after the tragedy that fell upon him at the conclusion of season 2. Hughie also unknowingly teams up with Congresswoman Neuman, who is responsible for many of the murders in season 2. Homelander, though, remains the central threat in season 3. Some details about the new season have been released, but much is still ambiguous about what will unfold in The Boys’ third season creating even greater anticipation for its release.

A release date has yet to be announced, however with production swiftly underway, fans are hoping for a release date before the end of 2021. Many productions have failed to prevent outbreaks on set, but as of late there have been successful shoots amid the pandemic. If The Boys team can get through production safely without any setbacks, there is a chance the show could be available before 2022. The Boys season 3 will probably up the stakes higher than ever before, and hopefully this time, Amazon will consider releasing the new season all at once.
