The third season of The Boys is shaping up to be another wildly diabolical adventure, and the latest new cast member has just been announced. As exclusively reported by Variety, Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) will be joining the series in a recurring role.
Holden will be portraying the Supe known as Crimson Countess. In the comics, she’s a member of Payback, a superhero team that we already know we’ll be diving headfirst into this season with the arrival of Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy.
This news comes on the heels of another Supe-filled casting announcement from earlier this week: Miles Gaston Villanueva, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Nick Wechsler have joined the series as superheroes named Supersonic, Gunpowder, and Blue Hawk, respectively.
The Boys, which is based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is a darkly satirical series set in a world where superheroes exist. Most of the Supes are quite terrible, to put it lightly, but the worst of the lot can be found working for the villainous corporation Vought International. Meanwhile, the Boys are a ragtag group of vigilantes risking their lives to take them all down.
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Erin Moriarty, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, and more.
Season 3 is currently in production in and around Toronto, Ontario, and a release date is not known at this time. Make sure to check out our ranking of Billy Butcher’s shirts and review of his most diabolical one-liners from season 1, along with our episodic season 2 recaps!
