The Boys season three is looking like a possibility as fans of the comics are keen to see what happens next. The series, on Prime Video, follows a group of vigilantes who look to put some of the most egotistical superheroes in their place. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the potential season three.
The second instalment of The Boys landed on Prime Video on September 4, 2020.
The superhero series is based on the comic book of the same name and it stars Karl Urban as the leader of The Boys - Billy Butcher.
Fans of the series will be pleased to hear a third season was given the green light before the season two release.
The news was announced back in July 2020, at a panel during the Comic-Con @ Home event.
Showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke said at the event: "Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit season three of The Boys.
"The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writers' room and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material.
"We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus. As if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing you a season two after-show, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Double entendre intended.
"Hosted by the incomparable Aisha Tyler and guest-starring the cast and crew, it’s a deep dive into how we make this insane thing.”
The Prime Rewind special aired on August 28, and season three can be expected in late 2021 or early 2022.

Meanwhile, the members of The Seven are also likely to return, including Antony Starr as Homelander and Erin Moriarty as Starlight.
Some new faces are also likely to appear as each season has introduced fresh characters.
