Finally, we have a release date for season 3 of The Boys on Amazon Prime, and this summer, Homelander is going insane. We also got a sweet new photo of Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy in the highly anticipated new season. The first three episodes drop on Friday, June 3. The following five episodes will air Fridays through July 8.
A Tease from Amazon
In the first, albeit brief, glance at the new season, we see Homelander absolutely losing his shit! The wild events of season 2 severely screwed with Homelander's head and he's feeling all kinds of ways in less than half a minute. Anthony Starr, who plays Homelander, does a fantastic job of portraying emotion from one of the most well-written characters on TV today. He gives off a very Joffrey Baratheon vibe with an ever sicker thirst for violence.
The Boys' New Addition in Season 3: Jensen Ackles
We also got a new look at the latest addition to The Boys' cast, Jensen Ackles, and it is thrilling. Ackles' portrayal of Dean Winchester in Supernatural is legendary and beloved by fans. He's widely a fan favorite already and we haven't even seen him as Soldier Boy yet.
Hopefully he isn't just a one-season deal in The Boys and stays around a bit longer than season 3. Characters don't tend to stay very long in this show, but he's a big enough draw to warrant multiple occasions of stealing the scene.
The Boys has shown the prestige in introducing a powerful new character in a new season to an already electric cast. Season 2's new character Stormfront, played by Aya Cash, was as captivating as it was disturbing. She completely stole the scene whenever on screen. If the new photo tells us anything, it's that Ackles is likely to do the same in season 3.
