When The Boys first landed on our screens in 2019, it was a satirical breath of fresh air, standing out amidst the packed wave of various comic book shows and movies.
After two gloriously wild seasons, the Prime Video series has become a pop culture phenomenon in its own right due to its signature bonkers violence and biting commentary of our media-obsessed society.
Thankfully, The Boys are now back in town for season three, which picks up a year after their victory over Stormfront (Aya Cash) and Homelander (Antony Starr).
It finds Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Frenchie (Tomer Capone), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) still fighting the good fight, investigating the most depraved supes around.
And they’re working for none other than Hugh Campbell (Jack Quaid). Yes, wee Hughie now works at the Federal Bureau Of Superhuman Affairs with Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit).
It’s a huge shift in their relationship from the first two seasons, that’s for sure. And one that has more pressure applied onto it with the arrival of America’s first supe, Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles).
Yes, the Supernatural star has joined the series in a pivotal role, playing The Boys’ take on Captain America.
For the latest edition of our free digital magazine The Lowdown, Urban, Ackles, the show’s creator Eric Kripke and more spoke to us about the show, revealing why season three is the most extreme yet.
The Boys airs weekly on Prime Video from 3rd June.
