‘The Boys’: Butcher Gets Powers, Homelander Does Damage Control & Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy Arrives In S3 Trailer

The Boys

The Boys will get a number of new supes in Season 3 including Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher – kinda.

On Monday, Amazon Prime Video dropped the full trailer for The Boys‘ junior season, providing glimpses at Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy, Laurie Holden’s Crimson Countess and more. Also seeming to take center stage is Homelander’s (Antony Starr) damage control, following the fallout of his fling with the problematic Stormfront.

“I may be a superhero, but I’m just a man that fell in love with the wrong woman,” the Vought superhero repeats in various televised interviews. “But out of crisis comes change…I’m really slowing down and reconnecting with myself and I’m very excited for everyone to meet the real me.”

Based on the newly released trailer, Season 3 of The Boys will pick up on a number of loose threads from the previous chapter – including Starlight (Erin Moriarty) and Queen Maeve’s (Dominique McElligott) attempts to further expose Vought, young Ryan learning how to tap into his powers and Butcher taking his retaliation efforts against Homelander to a new level, following Becca’s death.

In the clip, Maeve seems to introduce Butcher to a substance that will allow him to have super powers for 24 hours at a time. Despite Mother’s Milk’s (Laz Alonso) hesitation, Butcher says it’s just merely leveling the playing field.

Season 3 of The Boys, which will debut on June 3, also stars Jack Quaid, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Colby Minifie and Claudia Doumit. Sean Patrick Flanery, Miles Gaston Villanueva, Nick Wechsler, Frances Turner, Kristin Booth and Jack Doolan are also set to appear.

Based on the bestselling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke, who also serves as writer and executive producer. Joining Kripke as executive producers are Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver; Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty; and Phil Sgriccia, Craig Rosenberg, Rebecca Sonnenshine, Ken Levin and Jason Netter. Ennis and Robertson also co-executive produce along with Michael Saltzman.

The Boys is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.
