The Boys Season 3 release date, time, plot, cast, and trailer for Amazon’s superhero series

Our favorite anti-hero squad is back with a barrage of brutality, bullets, and blood.

It feels like forever since we've ridden shotgun with Billy Butcher and his rowdy posse of unhinged vigilantes bent on keeping Vought International's unsavory band of corporate superheroes in check.

2020's Season 2 of The Boys was an explosive outing with craniums bursting and a duplicitous foe unveiled as a metahuman antagonist with anger issues. Vought International barely slithered out of the Compound V scandal, Hughie asked the director of the Federal Bureau of Superhuman Affairs, Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit), for a job, totally unaware that she’s actually a prolific assassin, and after kidnapping Homelander’s son Ryan, Butcher placed the superpowered kid with Grace Mallory (Laila Robins) for protection.

On the brighter side, Mother’s Milk was reunited with his wife and daughter, and Frenchie and Kimiko embarked on a vacation to enjoy a bit of dancing. So buckle up for a bumpy ride, and let's unpack all the details of what Season 3 will bring.
