The Boys are back in town…yeah I had to say it!

Picking up after the aftermath of season 2, Mother’s Milk has quit the Boys. Hughie has moved in with Starlight and joined the Federal Bureau of Superhuman Affairs, but still relays some information to Butcher. And Butcher is still trying to figure out a way to take down Homelander. Homelander himself is dealing with his popularity down in the public eyes. Butcher may have found to finally kill Homelander and it starts with solving the mystery of the patriotic hero Soldier Boy. While at the same time, Vought has developed a new serum that gives people powers temporarily. Butcher has to decide if he wants to become what he hates most to win the war.

Season 3 kicks off with a bang. The stakes are definitely higher this time around. This season has everything you love about The Boys. Action, drama, dark humor, and lots of blood and guts. They seriously did not cut back on the blood and guts. Not for the squeamish.

 Once again the cast is so on point. The interaction between them works great and they really seem to get along.

I especially love Homelander and his inner battle. He just wants to cut loose and you can really feel the tension. Butcher has the same type of situation, but Butcher being Butcher, is very vocal.

Jensen Ackles joins the cast of Soldier Boy. A Captain America-like character. He’s such a welcome addition as a man of time, with The Boys twist.

Bottom line, this new season was so worth the wait!

The Boys Season 3 premiers on Amazon Prime Video on June 3rd.
