After a successful second season ending with a bunch of cliffhangers and mysteries, Amazon’s The Boys has begun production for its 3rd season. To commemorate the event, show creator Eric Kripke has decided to share the first photo from the set—and it’s a close-up of Homelander’s crotch.

While we don’t have the full breakdown of where the story will go for the third season, we do have some specific details on what to expect. For one, we know that Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles will be playing the part of Soldier Boy. In the comics, SB is a parody of Captain America, and was one of the first heroes to become a celebrity, setting the modern superhero image. With Stormfront having Nazi origins, I’m not surprised if she would have some interesting connection to Soldier Boy.
Back in January, Kripke has also confirmed that there will be a Herogasm episode which will deal with a secret island where superheroes gather to have orgies. Since we had a club like that in the first season, it’s going to be interesting to see how the show will tackle that without feeling too repetitive.

So far, I’ve really enjoyed how grounded the depictions are when it comes to The Boys and superhero celebrities. Of course, there would be religious superheroes that go to youth gatherings, and there would also be older, less famous heroes try to make ends meet with some shady people. Secret orgy island isn’t that farfetched.
No release date has been set for The Boys Season 3, but it is expected to make a return sometime this year. In the meantime, you can catch the first 2 seasons now on Amazon Prime Video.
