Eyes are on when our favorite Amazon shows are coming back for another season. The Boys Season 3 is confirmed, but it’s not coming in May 2021.

There’s no doubt that we’re excited for the third season of the superhero series with a twist. There’s something fresh about the show that paints the superheroes as the bad guys. Well, most of them, anyway. There are a few of the Supes trying to redeem themselves (or they weren’t all that awful in the first place), and we hope to see more of that during the third season.

We don’t know a lot about The Boys Season 3 just yet. However, according to Collider, Laz Alonso has confirmed that we’ll get a much bloodier season than ever before. Eric Kripke and co. are not holding back, just seeing how far they can push the gore and the blood before people get too disgusted.

The season is also going to be darker than the previous ones, partly thanks to Jensen Ackles’s Soldier Boy. He’s going to bring out the darker areas of all the other Supes, although there’s no Stormfront to see how bad she can get!

When will The Boys Season 3 come to Amazon Prime Video?

Sadly, the show wasn’t on the list of May releases on Amazon Prime Video. That shouldn’t be all that surprising. The Boys Season 3 is currently filming in Toronto, and it’s certainly going to take some time. It only started filming at the start of this year.

After that, there’s going to be a lot of VFX needed, so expect quite a while for post-production. There is still a slim chance that the season will arrive in 2021, but there are no guarantees as of yet.

We’ll probably get a weekly release format again, with the first three episodes dropping at once to start us off. This was a creative choice and not an Amazon choice for Season 2 and it worked well, so why change it back to the full binge-watch for the third season?
