For those that were unable to catch the SXSW panel for Prime Video’s hit series The Boys back in March, you’re in luck, because it’s now officially streaming on YouTube!
The Boys is based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The show is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes — as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods — abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven” and their formidable Vought backing.
Watch the panel below, which included executive producer Eric Kripke, moderator Christian Slater, and actors Karl Urban, Laz Alonso, Karen Fukuhara, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and series newcomer Jensen Ackles.
Fans have eagerly been waiting for more The Boys content since season 2 wrapped up in late 2020. The season 3 teaser trailer was released back in March — and we broke down the details of it here. Prime Video has also released the synopsis:
“It’s been a year of calm. Homelander’s subdued. Butcher works for the government, supervised by Hughie of all people. But both men itch to turn this peace and quiet into blood and bone. So when The Boys learn of a mysterious Anti-Supe weapon, it sends them crashing into the Seven, starting a war, and chasing the legend of the first Superhero: Soldier Boy.”
In addition to Supernatural alum Ackles, there will be several other new faces in the upcoming third season: Laurie Holden, Katia Winter, Miles Gaston Villanueva, Sean Patrick Flanery, Nick Wechsler, Frances Turner, Kristin Booth, and Jack Doolan.
The first three episodes of The Boys season 3 will make their way to Prime Video on June 3. The remaining five episodes will premiere weekly on Fridays. Stay tuned for our continued coverage of the series, including episodic recaps and more.
