The Boys are back. Almost. The show has been renewed by Amazon Prime for a third season, but filming is on hold for now.

Amazon Prime’s hit superhero adaptation The Boys has been renewed for a third season.

While promoting the second season of the show at Comic-ConC@Home, producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg caught many fans off-guard when they announced the surprise renewal.

However, given the current global pandemic, filming is on hold. But the good news is that these characters will be back eventually.

Get ready for an ‘intense and insane’ season 2 of The Boys.

While there are no updates on what’s in store for fans in The Boys season 3, the cast revealed some details about the second season. During the SDCC panel, fans were given a glimpse of the ‘intense and insane’ shenanigans awaiting in season 2.

The scene that played out showed a swarm of whales chasing after a boat that had Butcher (Karl Urban), Hughie (Jack Quaid) and the other characters on the run. The whales were being led by Deep (Chase Crawford), but he didn’t win that battle. One thing’s for sure, there’s plenty of blood and gore in the second season.

The cast also revealed that Starlight (Erin Moriarty) will be working with Butcher and she and Hughie are still navigating their clandestine relationship. Starlight is much more hardened after the events of the first season.

Meanwhile, the leader of The Seven has his eye on complete power. Homelander actor Antony Starr spoke about how his character’s journey is a bit more internal than the previous season. We will also see a clash between Homelander and the new character, Stormfront (Aya Cash).

Butcher’s arc will revolve around his former wife – this time he wants to rescue her from Homelander. The other runaways will also get more fleshed out arcs.

Showrunner Eric Kripke has tried to reflect on real-world issues in The Boys season 2. During the panel, he talked about addressing white supremacy, white nationalism and systemic racism on the show. Several panels at SDCC@Home referenced the importance of genre fiction to address real-world issues. We will wait to find out how well The Boys handles these relevant topics when the show returns.

The first three episodes of The Boys season 2 debuts on September 4. Subsequent episodes will drop on Fridays.
