We are more than ready to check in with where our favorite Vigilantes are right now. The Boys Season 3 is coming, but not in May 2022.

While we may be ready to see what’s to come next, Prime Video is ready to release it. The Boys Season 3 is not on the list of releases in May 2022. But we already knew that, so it shouldn’t be too surprising.

The great news is that unlike a lot of other shows (*ahem* Carnival Row *ahem*), we at least have a release date. We also have a trailer getting us ready for the things to come.

The Boys Season 3 premiere date on Prime Video

We will get the first three episodes of The Boys Season 3 on Friday, June 3. From there, we’ll get one episode per week on Fridays through to July 8.

Yes, this is disappointing for those who like a binge-watch. We saw how the series was unfairly review bombed in the second season because the creators asked Amazon to do a hybrid release. In the end, it worked out better for the series, and it certainly got people talking each week for longer than it would have if it was a binge release. With that in mind, it shouldn’t be surprising that the series is keeping this hybrid release model.

So, what can we expect in the third season? The promo gives us a few teases of things to come, including Butcher with some laser eyes. How has that happened? What is going to happen to Butcher now that he seems to have some sort of power? Will he be able to take Homelander down once and for all?

Then we have to discuss Homelander and his situation. He has had no choice but to follow Starlight, Queen Maeve, and others who want to bring change to the Supes. That doesn’t mean he’ll do it all willingly. He’s a sociopath; of course he’s going to find a way out of his current situation.
