When the second season of The Boys was released on Amazon’s Prime Video platform in the summer of our discontent, it became a hit (a.k.a. summer 2020). The R-rated superhero comedy from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke continues to be the most-watched Amazon original series worldwide.
And now there is likely going to be the season 3 for boys web series. So here is all you need to know before you head straight to the series.
The Boys is an Amazon Prime Video superhero streaming television series created by Eric Kripke. Based on the same-named comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, which was first published by DC Comics under their Wildstorm banner before shifting to Dynamite Entertainment, the film follows the titular vigilante team as they battle super powered individuals who abuse their talents.
The Boys is set in a world where superhumans are regarded as heroes by the general public and work for Vought International, a strong corporation that advertises and monetizes them. Most of them are arrogant and corrupt outside of their heroic personalities. The Seven, Vought’s finest superhero squad, and the eponymous Boys, vigilantes seeking to bring down Vought and its corrupt superheroes, are the main characters of the series.
Billy Butcher, who despises all superpowered humans, leads the Boys, while the selfish and vicious Homelander leads the Seven. After a member of the Seven inadvertently kills his fiancée, the Boys are joined by Hughie Campbell, while the Seven are joined by Annie January, a young and hopeful heroine forced to confront the truth about people she admires.
The disillusioned Queen Maeve, the drug-addicted A-Train, the insecure Deep, the mysterious Black Noir, and the white nationalist Stormfront are among the Seven. Mother’s Milk, a tactical strategist, Frenchie, a weapons specialist, and Kimiko, a superpowered test subject, round up the Boys. Vought executive Madelyn Stillwell, who is subsequently succeeded by publicist Ashley Barrett, is in charge of the Seven.

Until now there are two seasons for the boys web series! And we expect to see more of the boyish adventures if season 3 comes up soon.
On July 26, 2019, the series premiered. The narrative, storyline, humor, and performances of the cast, particularly Urban and Starr, have all received critical acclaim. Amazon renewed The Boys for a second season ahead of its premiere, which will air on September 4, 2020. In July 2020, the show was renewed for a third season, and a spin-off was commissioned in September 2021.
‘The Boys,’ although being a superhero fiction, depicts how the entertainment and religious industries work in real life. If you have the time, you should definitely watch it and read the comics as well. Superhero movies have been oversaturated in recent years. It takes a unique approach to the subject of superheroes and how they would function in the real world.
Season 3 of The Boys is coming to Amazon Prime Video, and it promises to be bigger and better than the previous seasons. Although season 3 will not be released this year. Because this is a show with a lot of special effects and post-production work, it’s more likely to premiere in 2022.
Because The Boys is an Amazon Original, it is available exclusively through Amazon Prime Video in every regional library. In the United States and the United Kingdom, you can subscribe to Prime Video separately or as part of an Amazon Prime subscription, which provides access to both seasons.
