The Boys spoilers follow.
The Boys star Aya Cash has revealed she won’t reprise her role of Klara Risinger aka Stormfront in the upcoming third season.
“The Boys comes out on June 3 and I’ll be watching with the rest of you guys, unfortunately. That’s my update,” she told Metacritic, confirming fans won’t get to see more of her villain.
At the end of the second season, Stormfront was left horrifically burnt in a confrontation with Homelander (Antony Starr), prompting questions as to whether her character would return.
Despite previously expressing interest in returning to the show, Cash won’t join the rest of the cast for the upcoming season, which will see the debut of Supernatural star Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy.
Cash previously addressed her controversial character, who is a white supremacist and a closet Nazi under her edgy, virtuous superhero persona.
“I have no problem playing deeply unlikable people or villains,” the You’re the Worst star said last year, “but obviously this was gonna be something that needed to be handled with intelligence and was not going to be glorifying this character in a way that I disagreed with, but it would be in service to something. So after talking to [creator] Eric [Kripke], I felt in very, very good hands.”
Cash has recently starred in miniseries The Girl from Plainville, also featuring Elle Fanning, Chloë Sevigny and Cara Buono.
The series tells the real-life story of Michelle Carter, convicted for involuntary manslaughter over the death of her boyfriend.
The Boys seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch in full on Amazon Prime Video. Season 3 will premiere on June 3.
