The Boys producers reveals Soldier Boy’s future beyond season 3

The Boys season 3 finale spoilers follow.

The Boys boss Eric Kripke has suggested that Jensen Ackles will ride again as Soldier Boy at some point in the future.

At the end of The Boys season 3, the shield-wielding Payback leader traded blows with Billy Butcher’s gang of vigilantes, resulting in him being tackled through a window and sent straight back into his cryogenic chamber.

With a fourth season pencilled in for production late next month, the character’s future on the show at this point is a little unclear.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly following the season 3 finale, however, Kripke shared that he’s “100%” up for a Soldier Boy return.

“The old TV adage is like, never kill anyone unless you really, really have to. Never close a door, open a window,” he said.

“We’ll all have to wait and see, but I can’t imagine the series ending without Soldier Boy making another appearance.”

Ackles himself also expressed an interest in wanting to reprise the role when he spoke to the same publication back in May, saying: “I know Kripke is very smart about how he sends his characters off because he can always bring them back. So I know there are plans in talks, but I don’t know exactly what those are.

“But I told Krip, ‘Look, man, put me in anytime. You tell me when to come running, I’ll come running.'”

The pair previously worked together on Supernatural, so it’s clear they share a tight bond.

Meanwhile, did you know that Ackles’ audition for The Boys included him recording his own version of Butcher’s dialogue for a videotape?

“I recorded all of Butcher’s lines, doing my best Butcher, and then had [wife Danneel Ackles] play it back while I was doing the Soldier Boy lines in front of the camera. And that’s how I made the tape,” he recalled.

“I sent it to Kripke, and he had some notes, and we went back and forth a few times.”

The Boys season 3 streams on Amazon Prime Video, with new episodes premiering every Friday.
