Here’s everything you need to know about The Boys season 3.
When is The Boys season 3 released on Amazon Prime?
The Boys Season 3 will be dropping on Amazon Prime on 3 June.
Fans have been waiting 20 months for the third season after season 2 was released in October 2020.
Not all episodes will be released at once, with the eight episode season following a staggered release.
The first three episodes will be released on 3 June, with a new episode released on a weekly basis until the series finale on 8 July.
Staggered releases have been increasingly common after the pandemic.
Series were traditionally released all in one go, allowing viewers to binge watch an entire season in one sitting.
What is the plot for The Boys season 3?
The Boys follows a group of vigilantes, run by Billy Butcher, who are trying to take down and expose corrupt superheros and the megacompany that created them.
A lot has happened since we last met the team in 2020, with the season 2 ending providing a shocking finish for Butcher and his estranged wife Becca.
The Amazon Prime Video season 3 plot reads: “It’s been a year of calm. Homelander’s subdued. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious Anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into the Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy.”
