The Boys Star Aya Cash Says Stormfront May Not Return For Season 3

The Boys star Aya Cash is unsure if her villainous supe Stormfront will return for the Amazon series’ third season. Previously best known for her role on FX’s You’re the Worst, Cash joined The Boys during its second season as Stormfront, the newest member of the Seven. Though she seemed like a breath of fresh air at first, Stormfront soon showed her true colors: She’s actually a Nazi who believes in supe supremacy. The Boys season 2 gradually unveiled the truth behind Stormfront, including the fact that she’s been around since World War II and was the wife of Vought’s founder.

Stormfront formed a dangerous relationship with Homelander (Antony Starr) that seemed to benefit them both, but everything came to a head in The Boys season 2 finale. When Stormfront threatened Becca Butcher (Shantel VanSanten), her son Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) unleashed his own superpowers and gravely wounded her. Now, Stormfront is suffering from serious burns and is without arms and legs. The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke later confirmed Stormfront is still alive despite all this, but it remains to be seen if she will return anytime soon.

Cash echoed those statements when talking to EW about her new film We Broke Up. When asked if Stormfront will be making an appearance in The Boys season 3, Cash didn’t have a positive update for those who want her to return. “I want to know if she’ll be back too,” Cash said. Since filming is currently underway on the season and Cash’s contract is up, it doesn’t seem very likely. “I’m not there now,” Cash added. “I’m on a new Fox show now called This Country. My contract for The Boys was only for a year so, who knows? Maybe they can CGI my face in.”

Production on The Boys season 3 began in February, so either Cash is being purposely coy about her return or she genuinely won’t be back. Right now, it feels a bit more like the latter, especially since Stormfront’s story is at a natural end point. The door is definitely open for Stormfront to return in the future, even if it isn’t in season 3, so audiences could very well see her again later on. It just won’t be in the next batch of episodes.

Perhaps that will be for the best, since The Boys season 3 already sounds like it will have a lot going on. In addition to the lingering threat of head-popping Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit), The Boys will introduce Jensen Ackles as the original hero Soldier Boy, and the show will explore the raunchiest event from the comic books: Herogasm. Stormfront still exists within this universe, but she might have to sit things out for a while. If that’s the case, then The Boys can really hype up her potential return. It doesn’t look like it’s happening soon, but never say never when it comes to superheroes.
