The dark and brutal story continues.
In today’s era when superhero movies and series are achieving great success, The Boys was one of the few shows that showed us a different side of superhero stories. They showed what happens when your superheroes are the biggest threat to your world and how grim and dark things can get once they start abusing their powers.
The show achieved great success despite its intense graphics and bloodshed and quickly made it so far with two seasons. It was loved by both critics and the audience and fans have been waiting for two years since season 2 premiered.
Well, the release date for season 3 is finally here and we are getting a lot of new faces this time around. Here is everything we know so far:

Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy
Jensen Ackles is popularly known for his role as Dean Winchester in the long-running series Supernatural. Soldier Boy is claimed to be the “world’s first superhero” who was present during World War II and thus gained fame for being a super celebrity.
Laurie Holden as Crimson Countess
Lauri Holden is popularly known for her role in The Walking Dead. Her character Crimson Countess is a parody of Marvel’s Scarlett Witch and her powers include Heat Vision, Hand Hand Combat, and Pyrokinesis.
Nick Wechsler as Blue Hawk
Known for his role in Dynsaty, Nick will be playing the role of Blue Hawk who is a comedic image of Wolverine. However, instead of having claws, Blue Hawk’s powers are pretty less convenient and have a hammer instead of hands.
Sean Patrick Flanery as Gunpowder
Gunpowder is a combination of DC’s Deadshot and Judge Dredd. He is an expert marksman and his powers include Weapon Manifestation in which he can manifest weapons out of thin air. He also has a really durable body.
Miles Gaston Villaneuve as Supersonic
Supersonic will be an original character in the show as he is not present in the comics. Just like his name implies, Supersonic is a speedster and his powers are obviously superspeed. He might be introduced as a rival of A-Train in the series.
The other new cast members include Kristin Booth as Tessa, Jack Doolan as Tommy, Katia Winter as Little Nina, and Frances Turner as MM’s wife Monique
