For fans of The Boys, Prime Video has unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Season 3.
Shared on YouTube is a video showcasing snippets from Season 3, clips of actors filming on set and interviews with both the cast and crew. The first interview shown is with writer and executive producer David Reed, who says, “In Season 3, we wanted to show people things that they’ve never seen on TV before, and frankly, wouldn’t be allowed to be on TV.” Other series actors provide their own commentary in the video, including Karen Fukuhara, Erin Moriarty, Karl Urban, Laz Alonso, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Tomer Capone and Jensen Ackles.
The Boys Season 3 released its three-episode premiere on June 3, 2022, and ran for eight episodes until the season finale came out on July 8. Season 3 introduced both new characters and elements to the world of The Boys, including Ackles as Soldier Boy, the first super ever, and Laurie Holden as the Crimson Countess, along with some of The Boys’ members taking the V24 drug to temporarily become supes themselves. The finale left off with one of The Boys having their days numbered, while the show’s antagonist, Homelander (Antony Starr), sees how he can publicly get away with murder and be praised for it by his fans.
The Boys Season 4 Is in Production
As of writing, production is now underway on The Boys Season 4. Two new supes have joined the upcoming season, Firecracker (Valorie Curry) and Sage (Susan Heyward), while actors Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Rob Benedict and Elliot Knight have signed on in undisclosed roles. Cameron Crovetti, the young actor who plays Homelander’s son, has been promoted to series regular for Season 4, which will also see the return of actor Simon Pegg as Hughie’s father and has cast Rosemarie DeWitt as Hughie’s never-before-seen mother.
The Boys’ College Spinoff Arrives in 2023
Prior to the release of The Boys Season 4, fans can tune into the show’s first live-action spinoff in 2023, Gen V. Previously, the show debuted another spinoff of animated shorts titled The Boys Presents: Diabolical, but Gen V will be an in-universe show focusing on the college lives of Vought International’s superheroes-in-training. The school these young supes are taught at is called “Goldolkin University,” pulling inspiration from the original comic series’ John Godolkin, a twist on the X-Men’s Charles Xavier, aka Professor X.
While Gen V has been given a 2023 release window, neither Gen V nor The Boys Season 4 have official release dates. The first three seasons of The Boys and Season 1 of The Boys Presents: Diabolical are available to stream now on Prime Video.
