The title of the first episode will be “Payback” written by executive producer, Craig Rosenberg, who has already written four episodes for the series. Pre-production has been well under way, even amongst the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, Kripke has even discussed what we can expect for the next season , including new characters and the casting of Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles. No release date for season 3 has been announced yet.
The Boys has been a hit for Amazon Prime since the show debuted back in 2019. The series is based on the graphic novels of the same name created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and it focuses on a more realistic view of the omnipotence and power superheroes would have over the public and government. Amazon has given Rosenberg the green light to develop a spin-off show involving a school operated by Vought International for young “supes”.
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty and Karen Fukuhara. You can stream Season 1 and 2 now only on Amazon Prime.
