the boys Season 3 isn’t over yet, but it certainly won’t be the end of the story.
Amazon has already renewed the series for a fourth season on its Prime Video streaming service. Four episodes into Season 3, the show is currently the #1 series in the US on Prime Video.
According to Deadline, the show’s third season has grown the show from previous years; on “the first three days since the debut of Season 3 on June 3” the worldwide viewership of the boys “has grown +17% from season two and +234% from season one.”
The announcement is not very surprising. Amazon has changed quickly the boys in Prime Video’s signature series and the cornerstone of an interconnected universe of shows. Amazon recently premiered an animated spin-off called The Boys Presents: Diabolicaland they’re making another spin-off, set in the same world, that will take place at a superhero college.
Here’s the official synopsis of the series:
It has been a year of rest. Homelander is understated. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie. But both men are itching to turn this rest into blood and bone. So when The Boys discover a mysterious Anti-Supe weapon, they are sent to the Seven, start a war and hunt the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy. The Boys is a funny and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods – abuse their superpowers instead of using them for good. Intent on stopping the corrupt superheroes, The Boys, a group of vigilantes, continue their heroic quest to uncover the truth about The Seven and Vought – the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that controls the superheroes and hides their dirty secrets. It is the seemingly impotent against the super powerful.
New episodes of the boys Season 3 continues to premiere weekly on Prime Video.
