Amazon’s “The Boys” are back in town this summer, with Season 3 of the violent superhero series going to Prime on June 3, 2022. Today, we have the official poster.
“The Boys” (based on the best-selling comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson) puts a bold, fresh and bloody new spin on the superhero genre, centered on a group of vigilantes who set out to take down corrupt superheroes.
The Boys are Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, “Star Trek”), Hughie (Jack Quaid, “The Hunger Games”), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso, “Detroit”), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, “Hostages”), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, “Suicide Squad”). Simon Pegg (“Mission: Impossible – Fallout”) guest stars as Hughie’s father.
The Supes of The Seven are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, “Banshee”) who is joined by Starlight (Erin Moriarty, “Captain Fantastic”), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, “House of Cards”), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, “Independence Day: Resurgence”), The Deep (Chace Crawford, “Gossip Girl”) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, “Supernatural”).
TVLine notes that the upcoming season will also welcome several new characters, including Nick Wechsler (Revenge) as Blue Hawk (get first look) and Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) as Crimson Countess (get first look). Additional newcomers include Miles Gaston Villanueva (Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders) as Supersonic, Sean Patrick Flannery (Dexter) as Gunpowder, Katia Winter (Sleepy Hollow) as Little Nina, and Kristin Booth (Orphan Black) and Jack Doolan (Marcella) as Tessa and Tommy, aka the TNT Twins.
